    For me the best traffic source were fb groups.

    It look me literally one hour ( that was the time to create my first quiz and post it to a dozen groups ) before i started earning some money!

    One hour..? What is the niche and source of the content..?
    I heard FB blocks the new domains for repeated posting in groups..how to avoid this blocking?

    Thanks for the response, I'll try to move to a more cpm heavy network soon then. I believe I ended up getting 5 clicks so $0.34 still seems low hopefully it will just improve with time.

    The idea for the quiz site? Off other journey threads and methods posted here on BHW.

    Reddit's a good idea all though I'm a bit apprehensive about all the downvoting etc but I'll have to give it a shot. For the adsesne account, I provided them with the domain and WordPress site and they essentially got it approved for me.

    I'll probably just move into different social sites instead of botting, but its a possibility.

    You can use secondary domains that redirect to your main, there's a bunch of free services that give you free domains.

    I use various niches for example cars, geography, movies...

    You must take it slowly on posting on groups. I was waiting at least 10 minutes before posting to a new group.

    Update

    What I've done

    - Transferred all quizzes onto new quiz plugin
    - Made a featured image for each quiz
    - Fixed some styling issues
    - Set up MailChimp
    - Resolved some ads.txt issues which will hopefully improve things.

    To Do

    - Mobile push notifications
    - Finish getting ads to work
    - Create social media pages
    - Request access to a bunch of FB groups so I can later post to them


    However, I now go away for 2 weeks for a holiday. With the second week being without much internet, I'll get the website fully ready within the first week so when it comes to the second I only need to post to FB groups instead of making changes to the website.

    Earnings: £0.28/$0.34

    Unfortunately it's not all about monetization that's why most people that start a quiz website quits their journey after 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong your plugin is okaish but I prefer having a plugin/theme that can offer me more options to entertain and increase user engagement.

    90% of journey threads go nowhere in 2 weeks, that is not because of the journey, but because of the people who run those journeys.
    It doesn't have anything to do with a theme or plugin that people use. I stated that the theme-quiz has shown worse performance and negative results on both engagement and revenue in comparison...but each of us has different preferences on what software to use, op made his choice.

    Nice one op.

    I also plan to go launch my quiz site soon.

    I have already bought domain and hosting and added t&c, privacy policy and contact us pages. I even have over 30 quizzes saved somewhere waiting to start uploading but I am still trying to raise funds to buy @se900se's plugin.

    I hope to start soon.

    Good luck with your journey:)

    Will follow this thread.
    Interested in quiz apps and have a quite few of them but mostly with no profit, so would be nice to get some tips from quiz websites.

    I don’t understand why such a small income? in the UK there must be expensive clicks unless it’s a niche of entertainment or if you have a very low CTR. try to do a survey on commercial topics for example for car enthusiasts. For example, "what do you think is better engine oil?" and engage automotive-related groups on Facebook

    I'll need to continue my quiz journey, but I'll need some money for that.

    Also, great thing is that I have many ideas for quizzes and twists to generate more income with this method.

    Quick Update

    Posted in a single Facebook group again, the results are as follows after 6 hours:

    Users: 32
    Page views: 759
    Pages/Session: 21
    Ad impressions: 1026
    Earnings: £0.10

    Improvement of pages/session of about 7pages with the new quiz plugin which is nice. Sadly still terrible earnings, don't know what the issue is there, going to work on trying to get into a cpm based network. I'm also open to trying different social media & methods so if anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    Earnings: £0.39

    Why don't you post to more than one Facebook group? I am personally on over 400+ Facebook groups and I can't wait to complete my quiz site and start creating quizzes and start sharing my quizzes on them.

    I think you need to work harder to make more money

    Im definitely not expecting results posting on one group, that's not the intention. I realise I need to post on more than one group a day to get results. Was just testing changes and I find that easier just posting on one group. I'll be posting on more groups when things are ready.

    My site is doing well, you just gotta treat it like a real business from the ground up. Don't rely on one traffic source. I have a poster in a school currently with a QR code that links directly to my site. You wont believe how many unique's i get form it. I feel people treat this method as "Im gna finally make some money". They forget its actually hard to make money, and to keep coming in consistently. Quizee plug in is fine, its not the worlds best, but works. If you can think of a better solution pay a coder.
    The owner of Quizee will listen to suggestions that you feel could be made to the plugin. Suggest changes that will make it work better for you, dont just say its shit and thats it.
