    Title says is all.
    What would you recommend, besides adsense? If any CPA network, which one and why? NOTE: Peerfly is out of the option, as well as clickbank.

    I would appreciate if only experienced members would comment this one. Thanks a lot. :)

    Why not compile some of your health knowledge into a short report on something that will be useful to your readers? If you have a hard time doing that, you could always find a PLR book to give to your readers. Once you have something of value to give, you can start collecting email addresses so YOU can start making money every month for the rest of your life, instead of CPA networks.

    If you don't want to use clickbank, there is always the option of going to outside affiliate programs such as Commission junction or Rap Bank etc.

    I am not sure if you are into product creation but you could always create your own, or have it outsourced.

    If you don't want to do any of that, once you get a decent sized list, you could start charging for solo ads monthly, if you don't want to be bothered promoting aff products.

    If you do one solo ad a month, as well as one ad swap a month with other list owners, Your profit, list, and client base will grow exponentially.

    Hope this helps

    My adsense account got banned unfortunatelly... The site was deindexed and re-indexed in 2 weeks. Google admitted mistake, but because the records show the site was deindexed, I can't get an adsense there any more...
    Thank you all for taking your time and respond here. I appreciate it.

    Can you tell us how much were you making with Adsense at that kind of traffic?
    As well, why did you get banned first time?

    In my hands any health blog with 4 000 pw/day would earn $100 a day.

    U can use infolinks, but you will only earn 10$ a day with that kind of traffic, also i think you could get a better deal with them if you got quality traffic.

    I was making 15$+ daily with this kind of traffic. It is quality traffic with more then 60% from G. Yes, I know SEO pretty much, it is Internet Marketing in Health niche knowledge that I lack. I am in completely different niche.

    I got banned because the G thought the blog was "overly-promotional", they removed then ban after 2 weeks and apologized. But the "side effect" of this was that my adsense account got banned as well.

    Can you explain a bit what exactly means overly promotional? Moreover, can you tell us how if you were using any other ads networks or even show/tell us some of the ads placement?

    Oh, I opened this thread to get some help, but okay whatever.. to get you have to give I guess. :)

    Overly-promotional is a term for itself and I think there is not much to explain. It's basicaly when you put more then 3-4 ads per single posts. That was my case.

    I was using peerfly, cj, adsense, adbrite, shareasale, etc... only for this site. When it comes to my ads placement in my other niches I normally put them after first paragraph on the left side (people mostly read from left to right, unless you are reading arabic letter).

    Now, I need help here, please someone? :D

    Your best bet is to head over to offervault and find the best CPA offer for your sites and sign up watever CPA network from the CPA offer you have chosen

    Markethealth is a good one, I am an affiliate of theres and they are very honest and pay on time every time. Plus they have like 60+ health related offers.

    I would try that. Or create an awesome ebook, or membership site.

    I don't see any offers that I could include on Markethealth.. although I have very targeted traffic. These are all basics.. "enlarge your penis", "don't lose hair" and so on.
