PPC for small websites?

    Hey everyone,

    It's been a while since I've been on here, but over the last year I've developed a website and it's live. I'll keep the URL hidden for now, but what I'm wondering is if anyone knows of any PPC advertisers who are happy with websites that generate small amounts of traffic. I appreciate this is not their normal market as it's low exposure but more often than not people start websites from nothing, so any ideas?
    SEMrush
    Adsense keeps rejecting me, for the reason of there’s not enough content, or since I'm terrible at design (perhaps they think it's still under construction). Anyway I get about 1-2k page views a month and around 10 members per month at the moment. It's an multiplayer text based game which I've built and I'm continuing to build, and I'm not looking for income really, just a place holder so if it becomes more popular I can then generate an income from it (if I'm lucky).

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Regards,
    Sycrid

    Take a look at Adhitz and Eleavers. Studads is also an option, but ads may not be available for all countries.

    Eleavers might be the best option as you can see where your visitors come from and the CPC rate for each country.

    I just had a go with eLeavers. What I learnt :
    1. that you can price your click cost at midway level and then monitor the average cost per click. I think that for each geotargeted location, the cpc varies. Am I right to say this?
    2. Watch out for the Avg Pos of your ad once you've activated it. A position of between 1 - 4 should be enough to get more clicks. The more you put your cost per click, the higher the position and visibilty of your ad. Mind you clicks don't usually convert to sales.
    3. Great for affiliate direct linking and list building.
    Good luck!

    Hi Sycrid.

    Your niche is entertainment; your traffic is too low for this niche.

    Adsense (or any other CPC network) is not good for you.
    You should try CPA & Affiliate programs ..

    Affiliate programs: Amazon
    Try to find good game affiliate offers and promote them on your site, it will work...

    CPA: CPA Lead ,PeerFly, Clickbooth, MaxBounty &....
    (In short CPA Affiliate Marketing requires users to click on an affiliate link and complete a desired ‘action’. The action can be anything which can be in the form of filling a form, signing up for an offer, completing a survey, downloading software, etc. Advertisers generate leads through CPA Affiliate Marketing and Publishers get paid for generating a lead. It is as simple as that.)

    Monetizing traffic is one thing that most publishers find difficult especially when you see Adsense as the only source of Ad network and monetising option. I will advise you search and try other smaller ad networks that have less requirement. it will sure be better for you

    Hi Sycrid, 5 years ago I started with a small traffic too, I dont think Adsense is not good for you - start to monetize the site with referral links and bring some organic traffic, after a few weeks your site will grow to also try to get CPA from at least 2 networks, with ads are safe and will not start to worry about legal and policy. I took a risk and use many advertisements such as Pops and banners.
    So dont give up!

    this is your business, you should have time to manage the site and life to bring money .. My journey was long time ago and now I can see the sky..
    I can recommend too companies : Ad-Maven for Pop traffic and pubpush for Push notification

    Good luck!

    I would also add some more content. Maybe descriptions of the games. Both ppc companies and search engines love content. Maybe add some game related articles to the site. Just make sure they are unique.

    You just need to find a network that accepts small sites. Not too many of them out there.

    Tribal ad pay and have many new features for mobile traffic to grow revenue. But I answer at this question with native ads from my personal experience. For example Adnow not have minimum requirements.

    You can also consider buying bulk traffic from traffic seller website. Maxvisits work well for me. They give a professional traffic tracking counter too.

    First of all you need to check why your ads sense account is not getting approved. 1k to 2k traffic for Adsense is good. You can try native ads on your website.
