    Hi guys,

    I'm Brazillian and after knowing that facebook had a game so called FarmVille that everyone is talking about, I've decided to create a 'fan site'..

    Its online since 11/04 and in the launch I placed minor advertisement. Now I placed more advertisement and expected more profit, but I was wrong.

    I have minimum 500+ uniques per day and 2k+ pageviews from Brazil and Portugal.

    I get about 0,20$/click and if I make 0,80$ at the final of the day, thats a great deal.

    Is that normal? I mean, I expected more than this.. What do you guys think of this numbers?

    Any suggestions changing monetizing method approach?

    PS: Sorry if there is any mispelling writing.

    Thanks, Denis.

    a few things to always remember:

    a) does the web site give the visitor what it wants
    b) does the vistor get funneled to a sales page of some sort ( revenue page )
    c) does your web design work for revenue

    With those in mind, it does not matter what speaking/written language you develop on, just try to target what is profitable within that language.

    I hoe this gives you some insight

    i think your site has some potential. How old is the domain? Also the design is really nice. Looks professional and you have that going for you.

    As far as ads go, you should put more ads at the top and left hand side like in the side bar. Those usually get the most clicks. Also try selling some products related to Farmville, like ebooks and guides. Do a review of some guides or something. And don't forget to try other ad companies besides Adsense. try Kontera. L

    Let me know if that helps.

    Hey Premise,

    Thanks for the info and sorry to take that long to answer.

    I've designed this theme for wordpress myself and I just bought that domain on November so it isnt counting Domain Age for SEO on this one.
    Theres barely some seo for this site.. I have problems (Dont know if I dun have luck or I'm too Lazy), searching for good PR and Do Follow backlinks.

    I have problems trying other network ads because I dont know if I'm going to receive their payinment since my account Bank is from Brazil..
    But I'll look at other ad-companies and try out, thanks for this!

    Btw, I couldn't even find some FarmVille related products because most of them are in English-US and my visitors are from Brazil and Portugal.. So I think only if I rewrite (in pt-br) the books.

    Thanks again for this, I'll think about it!

    A great way to get traffic for fanpages dedicated to facebook games is to offer the latest hacks/cheats for it (if any). Even after they're fixed you may write something to let the readers know x cheat is no longer working and still some get traffic. Another suggestion would be to look up regular fan blogs related to your content and try to get them to affiliate with you. It'd be better if the blogs you're affiliated with also share hacks and such.

    As for related ebooks to sell, you could ask for the author's permission and translate it yourself in order to sell it in your site. However, I'd suggest you do some SEO and get your site ranking well before you try to sell them something.
