hi all,

I have a well known middle eastern site where im trying to monetize.
Any suggestions?

The traffic is over 1M unique visitors/month however, earning is extremely slow and I have received a lot of 1-2 cent clicks.

Google ads don't display for users in the Middle east, and a lot of other ads such as InfoLinks and Chitika pay less than 1-2 cents for clicks. I once had 3 clicks and 1 cent earning.

thanks in advance for your help.

Just asking... is there really an ad market in that niche? Is there sufficient disposable income to support same? What type of monetizing is desired? Serious question as that area is about 1/6 human population and one I have not explored.

Sure there is.

Visa, Immigration Lawyer, UAE Hotels, Dubai Jobs, Dubai Resort, Export Gas, Oil & Petroleum Derivatives and more...

The Visa and Immigration ads pay the most however, I am still searching for a 3rd party to manage the ads.

try some affiliate ads for European internet companies (domains and webhosting). You can make banners in an appropriate language.

European internet companies
Great suggestion! Thanks although some of them dont have Visa Credit cards to purchase hosting from European or American companies. How much are the payouts roughly?
