    Hey guys!

    I have an MP3 downloads site that's getting 300-500 unique visits per day. I can't use Adsense on the site since Google banned me for not having enough content on the site :/

    What are your other ideas for making money with the site with this relatively small amount of visits per day? If CPA, what company, what offer, and what method do you think I should use to implement it without losing all my visitors? 40% of my traffic is new visitors.

    Thanks!

    Personally, I wouldn't get in to mp3 downloading and what-not for the time being due to SOPA , PIPA, and OPEN.

    6 months ago, I'd say go for it, but now, its a really sketchy area to get in to.

    zero-day got a very strong point.
    But since you already have the site, how about content locking? Promote one of those media player download offers maybe

    CPA ringtone offers first thing that comes to mind, customized for particular music that the user is listening to or downloading. Free iPod offers, etc.

    id stay clear of this dude, but if you want to ride out for some short term stuff you could do some content lock as previously mentioned and drive a shit load of traffic too it

    If you do want to stick with it, look into an off shore server, I believe the USA doesn't have any pull in Singapore, I could be wrong though, but I'd host it all there ASAP. It's a small investment to cover yourself. If possible get an entity over seas and run it all through that to protect your personal assets.

    Question, say if we are only directing them to a link on a different host or server, would I be worried about that as well? OR only when I'm actually hosting the files on the server, be worried.?

    Hosting or linking, it's not worth the risk in my opinion. Because you may read somewhere that they won't do anything, elsewhere you may read they will, but personally, I'd just go with a server in a location that the USA doesn't have any pull. I believe they don't have any pull in - China, Singapore, Nigeria, India. I may or may not be wrong, but as with everything do your research before acting.

    Free IPad IPod IPhone CPA offers, I recommend PeerFly.

    Or an affiliate offer to do with downloading music, there are plenty out there. (preferably downloading music for free.)

    Free gig tickets? and such, you could even contact a band and ask if they want to sponsor the site, show you have lots of their target group/fans.
