    Hi guys,
    So a year ago i made a "Watch online" site with TV show and movies in. I made it on Blogger, and i simply searched for another site that you can see a spesific movie in, i copied the site link and i shortened it with "ad f .ly" to make money. I invested a month in it and i saw no earning so i left it.
    Now i saw that im getting around 100 visitors a day, and my earning from "a df .ly" is only 5-6$ a month.. They are paying too low!!!
    I really want to use this blog and make money of it.. i could try Adsense but the site is full with "ad f .ly" links and they can ban my account for that.
    I need your help guys, about how to make money with this kind of site.
    *The site is not a worldside site, not in English.
    Thank you very much!

    I don't see a lot of potential with this overall. This is not a high traffic site. It's not an easily scalable model/method. I would go back to the drawing board completely as this barely qualifies as an asset. Be content something you built so long ago continues to generate any revenue, but definitely keep looking for a better project to implement. There is not much gold in these hills for sure.

    Sure i know that, i made this site when i was completly noob with IM.. But it's just filling wrong to not think about how to make more money from a traffic source you got. Im still doing better and larger projects right now, I am really filling like i should use it somehow. Maybe a PPC site's suck as "a df.l y" but with higher CPM?

    No there is not enough traffic to generate any real revenue with any method realistically. 100 UV per day is only 3k UV per month. $5-6 is pretty realistic earnings for completely untargeted traffic with no effective monetization model in play. I'm literally saying that the Ad.Fly model blows altogether. There has never been a site of that nature worth messing with at all, and the only way anyone ever made any real money with those types of sites is by driving 100,000+ users per day to the links .... not 100 per day.

    This is NOT a lot of traffic at all. It's further completely untargeted, unmotivated, unincentified, and virtually worthless. That's why you are not making much money on it. For perspective, I manage 22 adult auto-blogs that each get up to 3k UV per day.

    You appear to be feeling bad like you've somehow lost a revenue opportunity because you are inadequately monetizing 100 UV per day. I'm trying to tell you that you are not under-monetizing this traffic. That's the most you can reasonably expect to make on such low quality and low volume traffic. Thus my comments - go back to the drawing board and make money on something else. Be happy you make $5-6/month on this traffic volume because it's actually more than one should expect to earn. If you want to ask questions about making money on 100k UV per day ... that makes sense. Expecting to make money on 100 UV per day if unrealistic unless you are in a super high paying niche ... which obviously one would not monetize with adfly.

    You ARE using it right now by earning $5-6/month ... spending more time and energy on this failed project now will simply dilute your ability to work something that is better thought out and designed. You need to establish some realistic expectations about what you can earn online, and the amount of effort it will require to generate that kind of income.

    Sorry to sound like a downer. You just continue to appear to have missed there was never a valid question asked in this thread. Make your $5-6/month, and start working on a serious project now. You'll always have this $5-6/month to fall back on.

    Could you possibly duplicate your efforts and create MORE blogs just like this one ... if so then you might be able to make this model work. Otherwise, you can just rely on this as your first attempt and success. While it might not be a fantastic success, it still generates revenue and requires little to no effort so it is success! Of course you just need to figure out if you should continue working to scale this or look for an alternate method/model. I'd opt for a better model ... but only you know if this one is actually still worth more of your time to try to improve or scale.

    Good luck either way!

    Thank you so much! You were very helpful. I don't think that i will spend more time with this failed project.
    I have one question - you mentioned that you have "auto-blogs". What auto-blogs are? what does it means? automated content?
