    I'd say... try social traffic.... maybe instagram or something (facebook has been done to death).

    Gotta get creative. Most reputable ad networks don't allow this garbage.

    You can also try investing your time into something that isn't shady as f*ck.

    I understand where you're coming from, kid. I've been there. Arrogance can be so hard to avoid especially during the first few season of money making spree. Try keeping your feet on the ground coz you never know what adversities lie ahead.

    those sites I gave are not mine. I just gave them as example.

    I'm just curious as to which ad agencies accept these kind of news sites.

    Thank you

    I agree with IamNRE that social traffic work extremely good with this.

    I have seen a few fake news sites being extremely successful using social media traffic.

    The point is choosing shocking news that can attract visitors, i am not sure how can you monetize it though?

    thanks for the reply peter. I think FB ads don't accept this kind of landing pages though...

    Take a look at the written instructions on those pages...that's how they're being monetized

    I don't think they ever use facebook ads for this, I have seen them use viral script though (A LOT!), i don't think that is even legal, but fake news site is illegal at the first i believe.

    Ads are far bigger than any viral script for this on Facebook. So many people have spent 7 figures+ with good ROI on FB ads going to the fake news sites..

    But yes the FTC doesn't take kindly to advertising that way nor does Facebook allow it. They ban the ad account when they find it.

    Pretty much no networks will send you traffic for this stuff in the US anymore that are big. Everything you see that does is cloaking it pretty much or a direct buy with a site that just doesn't care and wants the money.

    I would say that you will get busted by FTC, and get put in prison for 80years, but i just don't even give a damn, because fake news sites are the easiest money out there for advenced IMers. I won't give away everything, because i still want to rub my nipples while watching stats. So i will just give you some statistics :

    Your avarage EPC is 4$, and you buy clicks for 0.5-1$. Don't use FB, use PPV and Taboola.

    And if you get it right, you can brag to your friends that you are making 32,000$ daily.

    1. If you are in the US. Be EXTREMELY careful with fake news site. I know people are having problems for running these.

    2. As mentioned above, FB/Google/any legitimate traffic network that has good inventory WILL NOT accept you. You might be able to manage to cloak FB for a few weeks before you get mass reports.

    3. Yes, these websites can be very profitable. If you want to do something as shady as this, you might be better off going for small countries with not much laws about online advertiorials.

    Good luck

    Do not expect an answer to your previous question. Most people who do this are banking hard, and they know it will stop soon. Which means they won't be in a "sharing" mode for something like this. I hope I'm wrong, but I'd advice you to go look for yourself

    The EPC might be $4 but after the10% CTR on your fake news page(because everyone has seen them by now so the CTR sucks) suddenly paying anything over .4 CPC is not profitable...
