    Hello BlackHatWorld.

    I have no time to write long paragraphs about what this is about, but long story short, one of my sites is beginning to go viral:

    This is all great, right? Thing is, that the site that I thought would convert like never before, has given me these stats so far:

    Now the thing I am asking, or maybe begging for, is some help from an expert in the CPA/PPD field to not let all of this traffic "go to waste", by giving me a few pointers on how to make my site better, and make my conversion rate/epc higher. This would really be appreciated, and I would be forever grateful.

    *Don't even bother PM'ing me if all you want is the niche. It's nothing special, and can be found everywhere with the method I used too.

    Thank you!

    **Mods, if you feel like this thread belongs in some other section of the forum, or something like that, feel free to move it/delete it, since I didn't intend to break any rules.

    Mainly from Scandinavia and Northern Europe, so basically Tier 1 and Tier 2 countries I'd say.

    Ads, as in Adsense or bought ad spots? Or something completely different?

    Sorry about my ignorance, but I have never looked into the part of IM involving ads.

    So I would be accepting a fixed payment for someone to have their ads on my site? Or am I completely wrong?

    Edit: Without understanding too much about the ad thing, I'd still prefer to have full control over my site, and just tweak the current system - keeping me in the CPA/PPD game.

    cpc/cpa is the same as having an ad on your site :\ ... only with people wanting to buy ad space on your site you're sure that you're getting paid while CENTSperclick or CENTSperaction campaigns pay only when a click/certain action occurs.

    CPC/CPA are gambles while getting paid per ad space is like renting real estate... a sure thing!

    The conversion rate will not increase unless you get better traffic. By better traffic I mean getting it from a better source, so instead of some viral script, getting it from a "download" keyword might be better.

    In either case, I've seen worse CRs before, so I would not go panicking over it too much

    I'd rather be able to scale the traffic = scale the earnings.

    As I see it, that's not gonna happen with the fixed ad payment - unless I still don't get the ad thing.

    Dude, ads as in fucking ads, CPM ads and so on, you get traffic, visitors get spammed and you get some money... there is really nothing weird about it. If you believe that your earnigs are shit, try adverts... If you can get higher traffic you will surely make some decent money

    Yeah, it definitely doesn't sound too bad, but I would need to know the amount and the terms before going into any ad selling, and you guys would need to know the niche.

    I know it's not too bad, but my CTR (I think it's called) seems to be quite bad. Over 2000 unique visitors and only around 200 clicks on my offers. The traffic is quite targeted, or atleast the 200 that click the offers are.

    Thanks for the explanation, people don't understand how ads are sold. The better the site the higher is CPM...since your site is new and we don;'t know anything about demographics I can't offer OP the CPM

    yeah because you're gonna jump to 10.000UVS/day next week and you're afraid I might get off easy with paying 30$/mo for a 190x120 banner....

    as in real estate, the better the property, the more it costs.

    I'm terribly sorry that I don't understand the concept about ads and especially selling ad space, but I created this thread to get some qualified help with CPA/PPD, so please don't expect for me to know about CPM and whatnot.

    since you're not willing to divulge the niche no one can help you. CPA/PPD is niche related... you can promote dating offers to people looking to spend a second honey moon with their loved ones all you want. It's not gonna convert.

    create a giveaway with something desired in your niche and grab emails which you can later on spam or give some advice locked with a content locker...

    you're basically asking blind people to guide you

    I'm sorry if I made myself a bit unclear, but I am willing to reveal my niche/site, but not in the thread. In a PM or a Skype conversation, and then hopefully receive some qualified tips.

    You have to be able to monetize every single user. Not just a converting user, but before somebody even accesses the website, get a like or g+ locker. This is how I got 10k+ g+'s for my site in 4 days. Use the visitors to your advantage.

    If you want, you can PM me the site so I can give you a more customized approach and more specific details. If you think I'm going to steal your niche, I already make around $300 a day from one niche only that I've optimized to hell.

    I had a similar spike in my web traffic recently - then after a it of diging realised I had been hacked with the pharma injection and was ranking for lots of dodgy keywords! What a mess, it took hours to fix and plug the holes.

    Not saying this is what has happened in your case but you need to see what keywords people are searching for that is driving your traffic and build your monetization around that information.
