Help on Profiting from a site

Can't do adsense

Alright, here's the scoop.

I setup a site about 2 weeks ago and put 10 articles up on a very specific subject, I then pointed 3 other sites I have that focus on that specific niche at it (all 3 have a PR of 6 or higher). Naturally the search engines came flying through and gobbled up the site very fast (weeeeee!).

Less than a week later, the articles are appearing #1 on Google and MSN searches for quite a few keywords (wohoo!).

Now, I know a fair amount of people are coming to the site, but I'm kinda stuck here because of this particular market.

I can't say what the market is or what the site is, but I will say it's against the terms of service on Google, so adsense is out of the question (even search for the keywords in this market results in zero advertisers on google lol).

Overture has some people advertising for these specific keywords, but it looks like you can't do ppc with them (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong here and point me in the right direction!).

I want to do PPC for this specific site, but I'm not really sure what else to take a look at.

Please help :)

Much appreciated!

Well, without telling us what the industry is, it's sort of tough to tell you what direction to go.

Try searchfeed?

"I have a problem. I can't tell you what the problem is, but I want you to solve it"

Hint - sometimes the TOS here, or the poster's reluctance to tell the whole story, make it impossible to give any decent answers. Try giving away some secrets, and you may get some given back.

Or stay in your hiding hole and try and figure it out without help?

If you have a sharesies site (i.e. BitTorrent), try to look at the other such sites and see what ad networks they run.

If your site has something to do with firearms, I'm not sure what you can do.

While payout is low, you can also try Searchfeed and/or maybe Kanoodle.

That's the best I can do without specifics.
