    Hi blackhat world.

    I have a site that is ranked on page one of google for multiple variations of the keyword it is targeting, it gets about 70 unique visitors a day and is in the drug abuse niche. It is currently has adsense but its income is very low - does about $1 or $2 per month, the reason is there doesn't seem to be very many relevant ads for my niche.
    I am currently trying out cpa offers to see if it will be any better. The site is about 8 months old with increasing traffic and the content is all unique with a mix of videos and pictures

    I am thinking of selling the site or other way of monetizing it. Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

    Get in touch with rehabs in your area and offer them ad placement on your website.

    Also, why did you start a website before finding out if there's any money in the niche?

    If I were you, I wouldn't spend too much time on that site anymore, I'd just make another one in a better niche. Take it as a learning experience and move on.

    Try to work more aggressively on drug parterns, rehab centers etc.. I am sure you will get some good partnership offer which may like to give you good money.

    The good part is you already beaten the google by coming number one - I am sure you will earn more.

    It was one of those sites i was trying out and i hoped to use adsense but the click through is awful so i pulled them. It turns out the site ranked and now i have to think of monetization. I think if i turn it to an adult site it will get hit and lose its rankings.

    Thanks
