12k visitors a day
now what?

 6:16 pm on Mar 4, 2005 (gmt 0)

A site I run has exploded after the recent google update, and we now host over 12k visitors (sessions) everyday. The site is only 6 months old. Theese numbers rise by like 500 every day since 1st of feb. I have a couple of affiliate stuff and also some adsense, but Im sure I can make much more money if I did it right. Im not sure if I can write how much I make now, but I'll do it anyway (correct me if I can't): about $1.2k per month.

I have some advertisers that pay plat fee every month, and thats good. But I'd like to move on.

So, where do I start? Its in the design/tech/dev/art section (not much money there...)

Any good tip from the wise?

These numbers rise by like 500 every day since 1st of feb.

You cannot have had too many visitors before 1st Feb then!

sorry, that sould read 500/week not day :)
Anyway, any good advice on where to go or what to do to find great marketing deals.

That's only about a third of a penny per visitor. You should be able to do considerably better than that. Sticky me your URL if you would like, and I'll be glad to make some specific suggestions after I've seen the site.

First: you should have posted earlier... every day you wait you are losing precious dollars.

I will just give you some simple advice that has worked for me... figure out what your site is really about and why people are visiting, what they are looking for and how often do they return...

If your site is highly focused on a particular product or service, I say do the affiliate thing. When promoting affiliate programs just remember that your job is NOT to sell the product, your job is to simply increase curiosity in the product, the merchant site should do the selling... all you want to do is get the visitor to click on ads.

If you have a general topic site or more geared at general information... focus more on adsense and general advertising. Follow the same path, build curiosity, get the click. If you give away too much information or satisfy the visitor's curiosity, there is no need to click the ad, that means lost profit.

Make simple, easy to navigate sites that load fast, follow this very simple advice and you'll probably see an increase in earnings.

Hope it helped, it's all I can do without knowing your site topic.

I would take MovingOnUp, up on his offer. From what I read he runs a few high traffic sites as well, and can probably help you out a lot!

All the Best,
