    If you can get good traffic from basically tricking people into clicking your link, what would be the best way to monetize it?

    The traffic is real but the bounce rate is big because the users are mislead into clicking the link, so CPA won't work. I assume adsense won't work either because, again, the visitors will bounce.

    I've thought about URL shortners such as Ad.fly which pay 5$/1k but I'd like to know if there's better stuff out there.

    Could you potentially get them an Amazon affiliate click before they bounce?

    Not a bad idea. It will be like shooting in the dark but could work.
    I'll have to do some research on how Amazon's affiliate cookie works and whether it takes into account bounce rates, etc. Thanks.

    if your traffic does not convert well with amazon, crakrevenue, etc and you don't have adsense then try popads and renenuehits, in my case I'm making 3K/month with adsense clickbaiting horny guys :) most of my traffic is latin america, maybe 30% from USA that is where the money is with adsense.

    How do you clickbait people into clicking adsense ads? Do you cloak the ads somehow?

    I wouldn't advise you to use any Amazon cookie stuffing. You might get banned almost instantly if they analyse just a bit your traffic.

    no no no no no, I don't do anything against google T&C I clickbait people into going to my site, from there is a numbers game, you bring a good amount of USA traffic and have your ads placed in good position and you will get clicks, I use blackhat methods to drive the traffic nothing else.

    Yeah I have no idea how good they are at spotting these tricks. Thanks for the heads up.

    I've thought about using adsense too but I assume it wouldn't work because I'm clickbaiting people into my site so they'll just bounce.

    What type of site do you have your ads on, may I know the niche of the content in there? (weight loss, education, etc.)
    I assume that has an influence on how long people will stay and look at the ads.

    Actually give the visitor what they expected when they clicked to your site? Then work them from there?

    I got multiple sites on the financial and education niches, just go for student loans and mortgages sites, I usually have just 2 posts on those sites, 500-700 words, 1 page for privacy policy (no ads in this page)

    Adsense or promote affiliate products should have the same topic as you build backlinks to make traffic.

    For my konversai rate of only 1: 1000.
    I do not expect much except good luck.

    I think you should present the thing the people wants and then get clicks. If people are not clicking on your ads then you should try to promote your site more and try to get clicks.

    Try a bunch of the things suggested here and see if any of those earns you money. The one that earns you the most should be the one to stick with. You can also try AdSense, if your site is not interesting to people, it might actually result in a few ad clicks because Google is pretty good at showing us things we are interested, so your site not being what they want might actually result in a few clicks as well as the inevitable high bounce rate.

    Pretty good but there are always ways, but I don't think you should risk it.
