    I`ve got a site that`s got decent traffic. It`s untargeted though; Adsense sux balls, I never get a single click. However, my stats shows that about 50% of the visitors actually stays to read. So what would be the most effective way to monetize this?

    I`m not looking for a complete businessplan here, I just need suggestions. I was thinking of putting in sexybox or something similar, with a couple of short surveys or something like that. Anyone got experience with that, _making_ people do the surveys to "unlock" the site? :rolleyes:

    Put up some general email submit offers that would target the general audience like a best buy gift card or swine flu "survey". There are tons of email submits out there that appeal to almost anyone.

    Thank you for a good answer. Hate to be a helpless little bitch, but I`m having a hard time getting accepted on the networks.. Do you know what network that might have surveys like that? Right now I`m just working with CJ (got my account back after they banned me.. :p )

    If you have a lot of untargeted traffic, then go with one of the cpm networks i.e. cpxinteractive, tribalfusion, etc. so you can get paid per impression. That may work out better for you if you're not even pulling many clicks with the traffic.

    I`m not pulling clicks because they keep showing unrelated ads.. I mean, wordpress big box ads on a unrelated site. NO ONE clicks on those..

    There are some good ones like that. Buhba.com, XY7.com, Azoogle.com and HyrdaNetwork.com have some really good ones. The most are on Buhba.com though.
