    Hi guys, I have recently made a new blog & it has a page view of an average of 2500 pageviews / day. I was thinking of monetizing the blog while increasing my contents slowly, so that I'll have the feel of earning some cash. A few dollar cash can really boost my motivation alot being newbie to IM. I've applied for adsense but i was rejected for having too little content and whatnot which was reasonable being a newly made blog.

    The question is.. :confused:
    -Can I apply for some other ad network providers for a few months while improving my content & then apply for adsense in the near future?
    -& if possible, which adnetwork providers would be the best for my case, where my general views come from social media sites like 'facebook' & 'twitter'.

    Thanks.

    Are there any products you can promote?

    Because you'll probably make more money promoting products as an affiliate rather than the low payout per click you get from ad networks.

    It's worth considering anyway.

    I doubt I'll be able to find much affliates in my particular niche. I basically own a gaming blog and to my knowledge, has one of the lowest payout among the other niches which is fine by me. I have alot to learn and I want this blog to be my first step into IM. :eek:

    I'm still looking for some answer for my questions tho.. :):):)

    If you have so much visits per day; don't apply for any SE advs. Just publish good contents on your site and give some space for private advertisers. You will get decent orders.

    OP go for Clickbank and Linkshare both have good affiliates and both are autoapproved. Try them split test them to get best offers,

    Go for a cross promotion for starters, or just a promotion. Get to be a bit famous before applying again for Google AdSense. At first you will have to be patient until things are starting to roll. If you have qualitative contents, try contacting some of the famous game reviewers and ask them if they can promote your site. Good luck!

    I would actually suggest you to do more "light product selling" or click per action and then GEO redirect your visitors to the CPA offers right from the articles/content that you have created.

    They don't need to buy much all they would need to do is to complete a certain action and you get paid for that. The more targeted articles you write and promote the more money you make simply put. That would be my advice!

    2500 pageviews won't earn you that much with adsense. Join multiple affiliate networks and think about what products you could promote to a gambling audience. Do you know what the demo of your audience is? Think about cohorts and what else they may be interested in - ebooks, physical products, etc.

    If it's gaming, Amazon Associates might be good for you here - review games with an aff link to buy, highlight deals on console packages, give pre-order links for new games etc.

    If you're looking at advertising, lots of the well known ad networks won't be interested in a 2,500 views per day blog. Blogads will though, and they're pretty decent. Might take a couple months for them to actually find you advertisers though (that's been my experience with them anyway), so don't expect miracles from them on day one.
