I used to run a site in the “dating” niche that was getting 2,000 visitors per day.I put “dating” in quotes because it was comprised mostly of 9th graders wondering how to talk to Sally that sits in the back.And just like, that I started to make significantly more money than I was making from Adsense.
For example, I own a site that’s 100% monetized with CPA.
(Not the type of stuff that’s easy to monetize) Despite the fact that I tested about 20 different themes and ad placements, I wasn’t making ANY money with Adsense.
And when I looked at the ads Adsense was putting on my site, I realized that they weren’t dating related at all. That’s when I decided to switch out Adsense for an email/zip submit offer for a free Xbox 360.
One of the things I love about CPA is that you can make your site look Fortune 500… In other words: Don’t waste the opportunity to make your site look legit by slapping up a nasty banner.
Believe it or not, but you don’t need in-your-face advertising to make money from your site.
