    OK, guys, I need only 2 min from someone who is familiar with topic to point me to right direction. My only goal at the time is to explore options I have.
    Returning the post. Subject is wrong, but thread is ok, I guess.

    Story goes like this: I made pure white hat web, kind of nice creative script, nothing big - but in last 30-40 days it went from 300 uv/day to approximately 5000 uv/day currently and going still up. Nice and slow, healthy :)
    Thats all nice. At this rate, I'll have 20k/day very soon, and yei me! Dough.

    Monetization?
    Adsense sucks, cpm sucks, just about every god damn idea I had sucks. Those are some weird visitors, ultra ad blind, or just some kind of Borg, but whatever I did in last cca 40 days, not a single thing raised my daily earnings over 3 USD. :(

    I'd like to hear options, help me out, guys.
    thank you

    G knows everything.

    Find something that works without so much legal exposure. Most things you can claim ignorance, say sorry and move on. What you're proposing isn't one of those things.

    no need to delete your whole post, just the CS part!

    you say you have 5000 uv/day...then you do something very wrong with adsense if you can't make more the $3 per day...if i were you, i'd give adsense another go, but try to optimize your site for adsense, search the forum for tips how you can make the most of your site with adsense, where you should put the ads, there are a lot of info here how you can do that

    and you can try CPA offers of course locking your site with some kind of content locker (BHCB)

    Here's what I did so far:

    a) Adsense: several ad positions, frequency this that - in better days, 3 USD
    b) CPM all kind around, if not loading 3 pop ups per page load not getting anything, traffic is 30% US/CA/UK and 50 Western europe, still it pays shit.
    c) Combination of those two gives me around 5 USD daily, whoa - 100+k visitors, 150 USD monthly.
    d) CPA -> 2 companies, tried directly with locking content, and even created mechanism that gives them 3 pageviews before it loads, just to get on good side -> still nothing.
    Onclick autoload of offers -> zero $$$.
    e) poker, casino affiliate links (due to thought its good demographics) -> nill.
    d) usenet.nl -> (edit, checked stats) cca 4200 visitors sent not a single sign up

    Cant say I did nothing, right.

    It's mp3 search engine. Custom coded, optimized, automated...Traffic is great, but as you see above - very weak on monetization.
    Maybe I should just delete site. :D

    OK; honeybird - adsense is always OK, and I'll stick to it. True - I'm not sure what goes better still, so I will try out more.

    But, I am amazed with this monetization defeat I have here.
    Is there any owner of similar sites here? Hopefully with happier story?
