I made like $1000 over a year with YouTube just from organic traffic, then I started a gallery style website about 4 weeks ago and use my massive Twitter following to send traffic.
Long story short: originally started getting $8-12 RPM sending 200-400k page views a day.
Now I'm up to 600-900k page views a day, ~2.5% CTR and I'm in the range of $4-5 RPM.
For 7 days in March I made $28k which is supposed to be paid out by the end of this month, which is like 2 weeks? Then I'll get a feel for how my luck is going to be...
This month I am on pace to make over $100k for April and I'm just concerned they'll find SOME REASON to not pay me. What should I know?
2. I am having my developer add navigation bar & categorical menus
3. Right now it's just images and gallery style headlines
The site is strong on content and it gets really good engagement, average time on site is about 40 seconds and my average page views per visitor is like 4.8, with a bounce rate of 50%.
Not sure what it really will come down to, but with all the horror stories I hear I'm mortified at the chance of running over $100k this month and never seeing the money.
Anything I should REALLY be aware of and do which would prevent me from being an easy target?
