    Recently I took a huge downfall with my blog that has been making me over $20 a day. For the past 2 month my blog was getting a good amount of traffic , 10,000- 20,000 per day. I did this by linking my site link to in description on youtube videos. 2 months ago I was lucky enough to find someone who was selling their youtube channel with 10,000 subs and millions of views on videos. It was one of those "Fail video" niches.

    by linking my site in those video description, my website was making income. Today Youtube decided to close down the WHOLE channel, removing all videos. My traffic dropped to almost less that 100 hits a day...

    I'm still trying to figure out a way to get back up to where I was before. Any idea would be appreciated.

    What was the reason Youtube gave for closing down the channel?

    Ugh, had a similar situation with one of my advertisers many years ago, just gotta think outside the box and figure out how to get those visitor counts back up, having a huge downfall is a great motivator for thinking outside the box.

    Always happens to the best of us. You make a lot of money, then suddenly your source of income goes down the toilet. You'll find something else, though.

    You were just using adsense?
    You should always monetize in different ways if possible.
    Put email capture form on sidebar or below each post.
    You can at least promote affiliate products.

    He lost the traffic source not the monetization method.

    Out of interest, where did you buy the channel?

    How long did it survive and did you make your money back?

    I got the channel from a guy who was selling it in a forum. I paid $150 and i made the money back in a week, it was way worth it.

    It lasted for just over 2 months for me.
