    One of my site gets 1000s of visitor on daily basis. only earning fews $. traffic is from search engine. niche is not hot at all. no advertisers are there for that keyword.


    Is there any monetizing way.

    Are you targeting buyers or people just looking for information?

    Really need more information on the type of content on the site. If it's really broad and general you might be able to make a bit more with a GPT site like CashCrate, by putting up a banner with your referral link linked to it.

    Yea, just post up the URL so we can all help you. Your question is just too broad to give an accurate answer.

    "Targeted" as in "looking for something to buy".

    Hvaing a web site about email probably does NOT attract targeted/focused users interested in buying anything.

    without knowing more about your site, I would suggest you look at how some of your competitors / similar sites monetize, 1K unique sure should make you some money

    I think he is hinting to a " information website" or something along the lines of wikepedia or about.

    even visitors who are not looking to buy nothing can be monetized with proper research and tools.

    Good observation oxonbeef!

    The vast majority of people on the internet are NOT shoppers, they are information and entertainment seekers. and thus are wary of ads.

    To make money of your traffic, you have to be able to get inside their heads and identify what problems the audience has, and offer products/ads/solutions to them that will earn you $. You might be able to determine "their problems" by looking at what sites and keywords brought them to your site, and what are your popular pages. You could also post a survey and simply ASK them what products they buy or what problems they have. Let your audience tell you what they want.

    Make sure the ads/offers are well integrated. Not just banner ads, and text ads, but maybe also kwd/contextual ads.

    If you are not sending paid traffic to the site, 'on exit' popup might help. You could use this to sell something or to build up a mailing list that you could send offers to.

    Offering "premium content" on a paid subscription basis might be another way to generate some extra $ from the traffic.

    Hope these observations help.

    agreed, I have a site that is getting tons of search traffic and im converting almost none. We have realized that its because they are looking for something else. Ouch...

    I would suggest if your site is pulling in 10,000 + to go with CPM (which ever one you like to use)
    Otherwise you will not be making money fast enough. If you are attracting less people I would suggest going with PPC and placing them in the key locations.

    The main point is unless you find a killer advertiser CPM will not work out too well if your impressions are under 10k.
