    - Connect to Facebook pages in the 'Humour' niche.
    - Connect to sites in the 'Humour' niche.
    - AdSense.
    - Write the odd article and place a "recommend" section at the end of the article (if your site attracts enough traffic you can charge for recommendation link).

    Hope I helped a little.

    Try to search for some funny and humorous product in amazon. I think you can get good sales from there if your traffic is targeted SEO traffic.

    You could try adding a photoblog to increase traffic, could work well with funny pics?

    well i know that ad-sense might not. but my friend has a ad network if you want to try it called "Elite ad network".just Google search it not advertising for him just offering my idea. i use it on my site.
    other than that, maybe set up an email list where they receive funny pics daily in their emails and maybe a few affiliate offers here and there

    If not Adsense try Chitika. And find some affiliate products online that visitors can buy.

    Adsense all the way. All the picture clicking they'll be doing; just put it causally in place of were a picture will be.

      If Google thinks it is disguised in any way at all, you get suspended. They're cracking down, and they're getting more and more strict now.

        Yes, I think funny pics site and adsense aren't a great mix.

    adsense, content locking in combination with cpa offer and amazon offers. I think that's the best way to monetize it. Not sure if clickbank has funny stuff to sell, but you cna always check that out.

    Want to get creative? Try to get people to opt-in to your list. Provide funny stories, cartoons etc. and use link in our email to either promote you product or other people's product, for example your own cartoon...

    Hope it helped and good luck!

    Monetize your website with Amazon ads, you can leverage from the traffic you are getting from your funny pics site. Or you can try other ad platforms besides Adsense, or you can place an ad space for banners or text links as well.

    Yeah, I'd personally say adsense, but affiliate offers are better if you have super targeted traffic.

    I've monetized sites like this before and it's not overnight, nor easy. Interesting audience. First, I'd suggest putting a social like content locker on the index to grow your social reach - that works exceptionally well in this niche, as does a Facebook app and full social sharing integration sitewide. Direct monetization is going to be challenging, as this falls under entertainment and is difficult to create a buyer. I'd stick with entertainment-related offers, assuming they're compelling offers. Netflix, Hulu +, Roku, Direct Sat on CB (if it's still there). Also, blended media ads would do well on your site along with high-paying edu offers. Stay away from adsense on this one - Google is not playing nicely lately, especially with sites like these. A lot of info but hope this helps. Best of luck!

    Everybody wants to monetize their blog, but if you have an excellent blog then offers will come to you without effort. So rather running behind how to monetize your blog run behind how to create an excellent quality blog from visitor's perspective.

    Then try to optimize your blog so that you will get better ranking in search engines, and you can do social media marketing as well to make your content go viral so more people will come to know about it.

    I know many affiliate marketing, ad campaigning places out there but does it make any different to you if you don't get visitors?

    So first do something so that you get some visitors then think about to monetize your blog.

    Run behind excellence not success, success will automatically come & chase you.

    use adsense for "consistent" monetization. perhaps have a LOL store where you sell gag gifts or something relatable to your content

    Try using specific keywords for all images and videos you have on your website. Upload your videos to youtube and again provide specific keywords for the video. This will attract more traffic All social media websites are excellent ways to get a video to go viral. And, use basic SEO to promote your website.

    First add all the social buttons so it can go viral on you. Then keep adding more pics. Yeah, as well as content pages. OK once you have the traffic you can sell links and make mega money. For example each link on the front page $100/week that is over $5,000 per year. Yeah, for just one link and you could have up to twenty.

      hi there, it would be good to link your current website to tumblr since it is also image based.

    umm.. my sugestion for you, join affiliate network, find a product that can attract people with a good sense of humor. For example, try prank item on amazon, my boyfriend buy this silly prank item from Amazon. So, you can advertise this kind of items from your site.

    I think you should try some traffic sites like mgid, 2leep etc for traffic and then use pay per impressions ad network. when you get lot of traffic you will earn for each views. I have a fun website and I have monetize that website in this way
