    I'm looking to monetize a simple word count website, something like these:

    wordcounttool (dot) com
    wordcount (dot) co

    I don't think adsense will do anything and honestly i don't know what type of monetization should i use...
    Traffic is as generic as possible

    People looking for word counts are likely in school working on essays and school papers.

    I can't think of too many other instances where word count is very important - some of your visitors might be doing SEO writing or something.

    I would find products that appeal to college students and SEOs doing article writing and split test between the two.

    Figure out who your visitors are and find a problem that they need solved. One problem that your visitors have is the lack of software or knowledge to do word counts on their own in Microsoft Word, or whatever they are using.

    yea, we'll that's easy to say, i mean i've figured out that stuff myself (thanks for your opinion anyways, any help is appreciated) but i still can't find a viable way to monetize this. Getting like 2k visitors per day and increasing so, i don't want to waste them (adsense CPM is like $1 - so that's really low if you ask me)...
