    You send traffic to your sites right? What kind of hosting plan are you using for your sites to not go down?

    It actually depends on how many pictures you have got on your site. If you are just starting, even shared hosting would do good. But if you are planning to go big, start with VPS and then if you see some increase in traffic and start earning, move to a dedicated server.

    I have 3 of them, and yes I purchase cheap traffic from various sources. For my hosting I have all my sites hosted on cloud servers from stormondemand granted its a little higher than others but my sites are rock solid. Check them out, the user interface in the beginning can seem a little overwhelming but once you get get going you can create a server in about 3 min.

    How do you all suggest getting massive amounts of traffic (i.e. "Likes") to your pages? I run a viral video/funny pic site that was a top 30,000 site in Alexa before it got Penguin slapped. I recently started a FB humor account to try and capture some social traffic. Google can't take that away from us, right...lol.

    I'm on a dedicated Hostgator server...$279/month...but I was getting 80K - 100K hits a day. Now I'm down to about 10K - 20K.

    Anyway, I'm running some FB ads, but I can't afford to "buy" a million fans. I've gotten up to about 20K fans now. I've tried buying them in bulk, but a lot of guys are selling fake fans...just to make your page look better.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    P.S. - If I've hijacked this thread, I'd be happy to start a new one.

    @SeoOverlord would you mind sharing link of your website with us?
    I am running my website on VPS and I have about 30k-40k visitors a day

    Agreed! VPS to dedicated once it starts earning.

    i'm using shared plan with hostgator. for now, it's stable. for the future, if i see problems, i'll upgrade to a dedicated server.
    depending on how many hits you get per day/how many users are online simultaneously/how big the pictures are.

    But the CTR and is pitiful, like 0.5% for my site and adsense is the best paying CPC right? So how do the other guys make money with these types of sites?

    The hosting problems start when you share the links from big fanpages and lots of traffic comes in a short time.
    I pay a lot to the hosting company becouse of that

    The solution is simple. Use a CDN. You can host on shared then use a CDN.

    Yeah I have 2mill fans and I do this, I use a CDN and a server that I pay 79 euros a month for the CDN is very cheap for how much it speeds up the site!


    I only get about 0.15 max on my adsense
