Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I stumbled accross a company getting millions of visitors monthly. They offered me a banner ad placement at a very low cost. Now Ive been humbly pulling in about 300 visitors daily and yielding about less than 500.00 monthly in earnings.
Now this company can provide about - 1,000,000 visits for the month. Will it be a problem to Adsense, because I know my adsense revenue is going to shoot through the roof.
Will they close my account? I know we cant buy traffic on Adwords but can we buy traffic elsewhere like this?
Aside from that, a huge spike in clicks might well draw Googles attention to your site. That's not always (ever?) a good thing.
But mostly, looking at your first post, it looks like you have pretty decent numbers as far as earnings go for the amount of traffic you have now. I think you'd be far better off working to grow your traffic on a MUCH more incremental basis.
Look, you've been posting here for a while now. I assume you've been working on the site for a while too.
Do you really want to risk that work and your current earnings for a fast buck?
If you should do it: it all depends on the other site: how legit is it, how good is the traffic. Can your site withstand scrutiny by a Google employee, ...
If you as a visitor would feel tricked: Google would have a problem.
Also if you deplete the ad inventory in your niche the payout from Google might be far less (and the ads far more crappy).
* note: exclude paid search here, you don't want to short-change middle-man Google. Don't do adwords->adsense arbitrage.
1. How old is the site you are making deal with, who allows you placing banner.
a. Are they older then you (how many years is criteria)
b. Are they young then you (how many years is criteria)
2. Are you both in same niche ?
(A webhosting related site, places banner ad on some #*$!o website (which gets more traffic), this definetly might not be accepted. (I am unsure about TOS here)
3. Site which is placing your banner. How are they generating traffic ?
4. Any site in same niche, if generating, more traffic 10x times compared to your site, will technically cost more !
(thats our assumption, as we only followed white hat site to gain regular visitors to our portals)
I hope my comments makes some sense ?
That website also uses adsense bit with zero optimization. They are a newspaper website, specific to a country. However they generate at least 200,000 visitors per day. But herein is the problem:
The existing advertiser in the same niche / real estate as I am gets AT LEAST 30,000 visitors daily from the site.
Now the ad is pretty self explanatory, so the people that click on the ad won't be disappointed. (i.e. a DVD Ad going to an online book store)
My site is real estate based and so the ad is directed to that. What I dont want is for Google Team to be drawn to my site find some problem and boom!
You see I get about 10,000 visits monthly if that jumps to 900,000 monthly Google is sure to close my account!
I am staying away from it, I cant risk all the hard work for a short stint!
