    Ever had that idea ?

    If i rank a site #1 and then i see that there are ppc advertisers all over there, could not you simply ask them if they want buy the site ? Or if you could just sell them the ads for 40% of the ppc price. They can change the website and then they just pay me a smaller ppc price for the visit of the site itself.

    What do you think about it ?

    I have already tried it for a site that was just ranked in the top 10 and have written 3 emails to advertisers, but they did not show any interest, maybe because i was not even in the top5.

    Share your thoughts.

    I have several sites sitting at rank 1-3 for a local business/services (i.e children's orthodontists cityname) each has under 500 visits a month so nothing huge. I have a business directory on each website where businesses pay a fee to be listed, in my case $39 a month. I gave them their first month free and most of them renewed, some purchasing a yearly spot for $399.

    I have been thinking about that sort of lead gen for a different niche ... can you share how you are doing the monetization?
    ie $ lead or $ PPC ? Are you providing as a phone call or just a straight monthly fee?

    What % of monthly searches are those 500 UV ?

    I thankyou very much in advance!
