    Can you think of some niches that are just impossible to monetize? And not because they are extremely hard but because there is just no money. This traffic is just impossible to convert with adwords or clickbank or whatever people can think of. If you have some good ideas name your top 3. I'm asking because I was thinking about this and have no idea... So I googled it and all that came up was information on the MOST profitable niches....

    You should open this in the Lounge section...

    And what do you mean to monetize? Set a max amount since every thing can drive you money, now it's all depends how much...

    From my experience entertainment related niches sux - warez movies, fun videos, pictures etc. Users like it and share it on facebook and everything but nobody cares about the ads, CPC and CTR is really low.

    fan picture / wall paper sites.

    Tried myself, failed big time.

    1xxx views a day, hardly any money.

    Full blown cpa semi blocks relevant to niche seemed to work best and even then only a few bucks a week

    Eh, I meant like what brings the least $ / visitor I guess.

    Warez and wall papers makes sense! I've also heard recipes really suck.

    If it does convert well with another way of monetization it's not hard enough to monetize. For example I heard a story about a guy who offered some kind of code generator on his site. He got unbelievable traffic. I'd kill for it :) And it made him nothing...

    In general it's niche where people are looking for freebies.
