    :) I have been involved in affiliate programs and have collected lots of goods and bad experience in online marketing. Sometimes my revenue is much more than expected and sometime its just goes useless.I have a :confused: question regarding my topic which one is better platform for us. Genuine sites which have got high PR and traffic source and are providing good article for the viewers or affiliate program related sites. Genuine sites are investing lots of money for its betterment and all. Even though I found there is no adsense as well in some of those sites :rolleyes:. How can any site make big money providing genuine service. I personally willing to start a new site regarding apps and softwares but before that I wish to know how could I make a stable and better monetizing site so that I could give my 100% for that site along with my team.I hope since you people will share your thoughts. Happy Earning !! :)

    How a site is being monetized which have not got affiliate programs like survey CPA. I was trying to say the sites like gsmarena, theverge etc type sites. How are they making money from those sites.

    Do you think it might be because they offer good information that attracts traffic and then offer a product to solve a problem?
    Sorry if my reply is not exhaustive but your question isn't specific.

    Those sites you mentioned do make money off ads. Give us a better example of sites that doesn't have a single ad in and is one of those top sites. Some of them positioned the ad placement in such a way that it looks like a post.

    When monetizing with Ads, it's all about the content and rankings. Adsense is only one Ad option, Taboola is nice but requires 250,000 monthly visits to join. Those are the ads that appear to be regular content - hence the reason they work so well.

    If you're offering your own services to earn a living, then traffic quantity is less important than traffic quality. Use SEO to rank for targeted keywords and even Social Media with heavy targeting. If your service solves a problem lots of people have, you're golden.

    Taboola requires 500,000 not 250,000 but personally I'm not to thrilled about the CPC's I get over there. I end up with about .50 RPM which is shitty. Only problem is that I don't think other networks are paying any better. I'm thinking about swapping to something to try and cycle people on my own site instead, those clicks just aren't worth enough to push traffic off my site.
