New website - how much to charge for ad placement?

 8:38 pm on Sep 30, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hello, I recently opened a site about a month ago, I get about 10,000 unique visitors a day with over 45,000 page views per day.

Im fairly new to this so I do not know about making money so much, I want to start charging for the placement of ads but don't know how much to charge with those numbers per day/week/month.. Can someone help me out here?

Also what is the best way to find advertisers (That is not an agency type of website) I mean like Forums etc. where I can post my ad spaces available.. I have not found good results with google thank you.

A month old site getting 10k a day. Please let us know what kind of traffic is coming in. Digg, twitter ect.

Well the site is 6 months old but It "Officially" opened a month ago, and recently "last thursday" to be exact it started getting 9.5k-10k a day.. Ranked 453,838
Alexa Traffic Rank 151,166 Traffic Rank in US....

We got the shoot up of traffic from being listed in a very big site.

Can you let me know what is the appropriate price for ads?

There is no set price. Every niche is different. I would start by running with some ad networks. Once you see what you can earn with them, then charge slightly more to provide savings for your advertisers and more profit for you.

Since your success is so recent, I would suggest starting with adsense and see
a) if the traffic keeps coming at that rate
b) what advertisers in that niche are paying
If your traffic continues to be at the current level, you can create a rate card for different places on your site or try selling your adspace through an adnetwork
