    Question New website, How much money would i have made??

    Hello all,

    Just had a quick question, launched my site a few weeks ago and have had a good view hits about 3000, in 2 weeks since it launched. Along with this I have had about 53000 page view!!! Was quite amazed at this figure

    The site is Watch This Cam - Chat and watch the world

    My question is what would be the best advertising methods for my website would you guys recommend CPM or CPC?

    I was thinking about just placing a sky-scrapper banner along the side of every cam?

    What would be the general CPM for one of these?
    Or how much would I have made from 53000 page views?

    Its my first proper website that I have made and am quite new to advertising especially on websites.

    Also if you are checking out the site id advise doing so in Firefox or chrome.

    Thanks all

    Typical rates from slapping an easy ad network like AdSense on a site are somewhere around 0.10 - 0.50 per 1000 pageviews, so in this case something like $5 - $25.

    Possibly much more from a well-targeted affiliate offer, selling memberships to your users or doing direct ad sales.

    I think finding a pay per click program for this site would be better. There are several to choose from. I think there is a link to ad programs in a sticky on this forum.

    Go first with adsense ... see how much you make. If you don't like the revenue go to affiliate networks and place links to buy things related to your content.
    You can do both of them in the same time.

    Definitely give AdSense a shot and see what kind of traction you get. Once you start receiving more traffic, maybe provide a pop-up/splash banner or content unlocker for "premium" cams (i.e. your most popular cams). Affiliate offers would be a good route as well.

    You could combine adsense with relevant on page content, title, tags.

    Adsense gives contextual ads, so if users watch a webcam from Barcelona they could receive travel ads and flights to Barcelona, which could convert to clicks and income.
