Hello! OK, I'm trying to make this short: I'm getting an average of around 30,000 views a day in the sports/football niche (ok, that's not really a niche, but a huge category). According to youtube's statistics, a majority of these views come from unique viewers. I've been reading this forum for a while and it seems like everyone just wants many views = lots of traffic, and then they can easily cash in. I think I've got the views covered, but so far haven't found a way to cash in properly. I have set up a small website, using wordpress, which targets the same audience that watches my videos -> football fans. It's pretty much a video blog for the time being, with a few hundred football videos that my youtube audience might be interested in watching. So far, I've added some clicksor layer ads/banners to the site as well as a pop up ad (or PopAd) by a different service. Problem 1: Within the last 5 days, I got around 190,000 views on youtube. In the same timeframe I received a whopping 850 hits on my website. Those came from a majestic 260 unique visitors. That's a pretty miserable rate. Close to 1/1000. My best "customers" are myself and two google bots. I have put my url in the description of all of my videos (first line, so it's always visible to everyone who watches the videos.) It's also clickable. Furthermore, I have added red annotations to my main videos, that urge the viewers to visit my site - to see more videos like this one or to watch a longer/better/improved version of the current video etc. The results are meagre. Infact, it seems to me that having no annotation/call to action at all and simply leaving the mysterious url in the description results in more traffic to my site. But maybe that's coincidence. Problem 2: So, I have received 850 clicks from 260 unique people. That's bad, but the monetization is even much worse: I've made an incredible 9 cents (!) so far from my pop up ad and a mind-blowing 21 cents (!) from the layer ads. Even with the few visitors that I've got, that's just shocking. It appears that a majority of visitors don't even get to see the pop up. And hardly anyone clicks those layer banners anyway. Personally, I wouldn't click them. It's usually stuff that hardly interests anyone and/or that just screams "ignore me, I'm a half-assed scam advertisement that you will find on 3 billion other websites". Questions: 1) What are good ways to turn 30k targeted youtube views into a decent amount of visitors to my site? 2) How would I best approach monetizing such a site? Again, the audience is football fans, but it seems like they are only interested in watching the most current video and that's all. Not sure if they would even be remotely interested in buying stuff from a shady URL in a video description. But I'm no expert on this matter obviously. I would probably try some CPA offers and all of that, but I guess I need more visitors to the site first... Thanks in advance for any helpful hints.
