    teen girl brings in $70,000 a month
    I like it when teens are agressive and making $mils. Tyring to get my own teens working to make their first $mil too. lol Just saw on news this morning, thought it might inspire a few lurking teens here and others to....Get Working!

    Ian Moray....manager of media development at the online marketing company ValueClick....approached Ashley Qualls, Whateverlife's founder, about incorporating ads from ValueClick's 450 or so clients and sharing the revenue. continued She will be on The View Sept 28.

    Careful, saw a few Casale Media Pop-ups, but for 70k find me their link.

    Another blog about her even offers tips. "Like other high traffic websites, Whateverlife.com runs CPM ads by Casale Media and Value Click"

    Well I was impressed when I went to her site initially, but when the MALWARE alert on my scanner went bonkers and denied me access, I lost my adoration for her quickly. :0( I hope my computer goofed, that would suck, especially if she is a fast company and on The View!

    Out of those three links, I only liked this one:

    This other blog about her even offers tips. "Like other high traffic websites, Whateverlife.com runs CPM ads by Casale Media and Value Click"
    The other two gave pop-ups.

    Her website gets 2.4 Million U.S visitors per month

    If I had such Affiliate traffic. I would be making 1 Million per month, according to my current stats

    Hey that's great. It is good to know that the potential is there.

    My Network of sites gets 2.5-3 million hits per month. I hope to start a store soon.

    It's a Trojan

    I scanned my computer using Kaspersky Lab and detected Trojan-Downloader.JS.Psyme.bk which cannot be desinfected nor deleted. How can remove it?

    yeah stopped a exploit here too exp/html.unk

    I hope the gals of the view (who ever it is this week) grill her ass about it, but it could be that she has been hacked since getting this spot light.

    I guess instead of putting time and quality into my sites, which generate little to no traffic or revenue, I'll start generating god awful pages full of ads, popups and malware then maybe I can start making a nice living. Lately those seem to be what make money.

    So she earns 60% of her income from AdSense. Ya think those advertisers are getting any business from those teen girls?

    The AdSense T&Cs say that you must be at least 18.

    I know a lot of folks who run these types of resource sites (the subject of this thread included), and most of them are indeed teenagers and tweens who aren't going to listen to "some guy" (me) telling them that these "big guys" are "bad guys". These kids are waaaaay out of the circle as far as being aware and knowledgeable about what kind of operators are out there posing as respectable businessmen.

    Be careful who you give accolades to...because of your glowing recommendation I visited the page and received Trojan-Downloader.JS.Psyme.nc +

    I'm not going to run to the next site you praise online, Jorge

    Ah, she is doing one of those myspace free layout websites. Read about one doing really well before. I would have thought the market would be saturated. Though I had some ideas I thought might work in this area, for a later project.

    Hopefully for this girl, she just hooked up with the wrong company and can get the problem solved.

    Not That Impressive
    Sorry but I'm feeling mixed opinion. Nice concept, nice funky layout, poor marketing.

    One and a half million visitors, sixty million page views yet only $70,000 revenue a month?

    That's equivalent to a mere $70 (a very modest 35) a month for 500 unique visitors or 14c a visitor (7 pence). Now given that virtually all revenue is click based while it looks impressive with all those visitors, she could be doing a lot better with product placement and I'm sure she could broker a deal whereby she gets paid not only per click but also a per sale basis for the same click through.

    Her choice of available revenue generators is a bit difficult to assess. The products offered appeal to that age group and would readily be downloaded. The concern is that malware downloaded can then create an army of slave machines and we get more

    On the whole she has a modern appeal and is pro-active, but she seriously needs to take on board important lessons about protecting her website from promoting anything construed as harmful. Unless she's happy to do so in which case she'll (I suggest) no doubt graduate to something nasty down the line and we'll read all about it on CNN in the years to come.

    All told. She's got potential. Just depends how she intends to progress. I'll be charitable and say that she's still naive as to what is and isn't malware and leave it at that.

    And others are naive about other things. The site in question is not a sales site, it is a "here is some free stuff for you to use for free on your profile page on the free social networking site" website. This type of traffic is the most difficult to monetize.

    You obviously misread my entire post then. Every download that isn't a free template is on a Pay Per Click model and that includes every little emoticon available there plus all the other little tidbits.

    What I am saying is that if she bothered in her forum and on her site to replace some of the stuff with must have teen items provided by merchants she could negotiate a Pay Per Click and Pay Per Sale agreement with them and boost her revenue without offering any malware.

    without offering any malware.
    I'm still willing to bet my bottom dollar that most operators of these types of sites have NO CLUE about what is up with all this stuff. And any opinions or information that you or I or any other joe may offer to them goes in one ear and out the other. The Santa Barbara Slicksters send them checks; you and I don't. Who do you think they trust/listen to?

    All I'm trying to say is that most of the people who run these types of sites are not bad people. They are just blind and ignorant.

    I agree with you there. Many are innocent or ignorant and given her age, she probably isn't aware and being a teenager she isn't willing to be told so when she trawls internet world and comes across this forum and sees just what affiliate marketing and marketing in general is all about then hopefully she'll fix things if not sooner.

    What I would be very very interested to know is if there is ANY correlation between the rise in infected MySpace web pages and her site.

    Quite a few use products available from the site, both the freebies and the 3rd party supplied downloads. If there is a correlation then that IS an issue worth looking into in fine detail.

    $70k/month.. and "her first Adsense paycheck was $2,790 and she has already rejected a $1.5 million buyout offer."

    Kudos to her!!
    I think she just paid off her 1 st year at Harvard in 1 month.

    I don't give kudos to anyone who puts spyware/trojan viruses on someone eles's machine either knowingling or unknowingly.

    If your machine became infested after a visit to her f***ing site you wouldn't be exclaiming "kudos "

    I didn't have to deal with sh!t before visiting that sweet, innocent girl's f***ing site and least Panda got rid of some of it:
    Panda seemed to kill some of these viruses:
    Virus:Trj/Downloader.CZR was Disinfected
    Virus:Trj/Goldun.AS was Disinfected
    Virus:Trj/Mitglieder.EV was Disinfected
    Virus:W32/Nurech.A.worm was Disinfected

    One thing, I don't trust everyone's accolades anymore
    I sure won't be visiting sites that are supposed to be oh so great.
