Hi,

My site with no content only adsense and a amazon link has been live for 5 days and on average has had 30 unique visitors per day up until yesterday, today it had 58.

Is this a good start in terms of being able to make money?

Thanks

    It is a good start, but why not increase your chances of long term success by adding some content?

    a website with just adsense and affiliate links in not very good. without content no one knows what your affilate links are. you need to maybe write reviews on the products you are promoting. whats your website so I can check it out?

      Imdude - I haven't enough posts to pm, I'd rather not share as I believe it's a very good untapped niche (although its in movies)

    Hi mate,
    Without Content what is the use of the site. You may get some visitors accidentally. But just go away from your site , if you don't have any content in your website.
    So try to built some unique content with your ideas , and you can utilize those traffic to earn money.,

      The site ranks 1st for a popular name in google, I've done nothing to it as I haven't had chance, im new to IM and was testing the water as to see if it was the right niche. I think I've found it but how I develop it is a different headache!

      The site is a movie site (although the only movies you get at the moment is by clicking on amazon) I need to find out how to put a large catalogue of movies on there!

      My success rate with adsense is 32% at present but pays 5pence (uk) per click, so I agree I will not make anything with that!

      Amazon only pays 4% which again isn't great!

        I don't understand either. You are ranking for a top keyword? But you set up your website five days ago? And you have done no SEO optimization? And have no content.. doesnt make sense

          Yea a little bit strange. I was thinking the same and also how he get about 40 visitors per day in only 5 days after site launch without do nothing.

          Maybe he can share with us

    Adsense pays pennies a click, so if you go that route, you are going to need a ton of traffic. Statistically speaking, it takes just as many visitors on average to get an adsense click as it does an affiliate sale (1 adsense click/affiliate sale per 100 visitors). That's why I prefer doing affiliate marketing over using adsense. Also, the search engines are big on unique, quality content. It will help to bring in traffic to your site. Why not add some?

    If there's no content people will leave immediately after viewing it. But if you add more content people will visit your site more often and will share it to their friends especially if they find it real nice and awesome.

      If it's also a new adsense account better remove those ads till you have some content.

      The "popular name" may be a celebrity - make sure you aren't violating a trademark or you may not keep the site long.

      At the least I hope you have some text describing the Amazon products for sale.

    Why are thinking about monetization part ? Focus on Content creation and consistent promotion. Monetization is a later stage.

    I guess it is about domain it must be fully enriched with keywords that is why having some traffic. You should focus on adding some content and do some SEO for your site rather than waiting for the visitors to increase :-)

      Hi All,

      Thanks for your feedback, if I was to give you my website (PM) I would appreciate any advice on how I could improve it, bearing in mind there is currently no content.

      Thanks

    You'll soon slip out of the top places if you won't add content and work on your SEO. If you're on the top places after 2 months than you'll stay there.

    I guess you have hit a goldmine. You have tested the waters, it is working, so outsource and get quality content on it as quickly as possible. Niches are never secret for too long. There are many bright, aggressive IMers so if you don't move quickly, you just might lose your head start.

    A good start maybe,but if you want to set yourself up for long term success then you absolutely need content. Good content=value, value=traffic, traffic=$...simple.
