    Here's the problem.

    Right now I have 2 websites pulling in some decent traffic. One is getting 1700 UVs/day and the other 400 UVs/day. The one that is getting 1700 UVs a day is mostly coming from images so I barely get adsense clicks.

    Half of the traffic of website #2 comes from google images. About 95% of traffic is organic. I'm getting about 1 click a day on 10,000 page views. Any ideas on how to monetize it better?

    Website #1 - Hot girl niche 1700 UVs/day
    Website #2 - Music Industry 400 UVs/day

    I would really appreciate the advice as I know both these websites are going to grow very quickly.

    Thanks.

    I'm using adsense only. And the banners are somewhat relevant but the CPC is low I would say.

    for picture based websites you better use image only adsense ads setting because it's based on cpm AFAIK..

    the more content - the more chances of success
    invest money outsourcing and watch your adsense creep up

    Maybe try some dating affiliate sites or something or use content locking for some pics and lie about it.

    I would try putting some really valuable content behind a content locker. if they are coming consistently, they may just sign up to get what they want

    Try affiliate marketing, since you have lots of unique visitors each day, no wonder you will earn from it. :)

    Hey people, thanks for all the advice.


    I do have a lot of visitors, and over 500 pages of unique content. It's a time of news blog, targeting a specific niche so it's very hard to use affiliated marketing.
