    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.

    Home Page:
    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
