    I got a website getting 200 organic visitors a day but I have no idea what to do with it. Its in the tech niche, related to some free software, so my traffic wont buy anything and placing ads on it gives pennies.

    I was thinking of somehow boosting youtube views with that traffic. Can't think of anything else...

    What would you do with a worthless 200 visitors a day?

    Try any type of cpa offer you can semi related to the niche, Just test and see what works. And as a plus try building a list even if the niche is broad you can always try and market to them in the future.

    Try things like the free iPhone offers, free Wii, free Xbox + Kinect bundles, etc. Or just content lock the bitch and be done with it.

    Try anything and everything. Experiment till you find something that works. If the traffic is all organic you should be able to squeeze a few bucks out of it. Make sure you experiment with ad position and try different colors as well. You will be surprised at the difference small changes can make. I recently improved earnings on one site by 400% just by repositioning my ads and changing up the color scheme. Just keep at it.

    where is your traffic coming from.....??

    you need to know that first.....

    then go to quancast.... run the your top referer thru it...
    get the demographics...
    then use the demographics to get sites that match
    those demographics...

    then... look at those sites... and
    copy how they are monetizing their site..

    people always ask this question...
    and its a matter of figuring the demo of your
    traffic... then finding othere sites... and copy what
    they are doing...

    then make bank...

    Its a website related to a free software (i.e.firefox). The only thing that these visitors want to do is to find the download button and start downloading their FREE software.
    The average cpc for that nice is $0.05-$0.07 so no, ads will not work. Half of the traffic is from low tier countries such as india and their clicks are paid $0.01-$0.02. Even if i manage to get a shitton of clicks on my ads I will barely make a dollar a day. I could probably squeeze out 3$ a day max from that website by promoting highly targeted cpa offers or by placing a content locker in hopes that some noob will fill out an offer but I would rather spend my time working on the 100$/day websites than this one.

    tl;dr Making money from this website is a lost hope. Need some other ideas.
