Just look at the most popular sites on the web using the Quantcast top sites list. It’s time consuming to manually look at thousands of different websites, but on the flip side you can gain a lot if you keep your eyes out for things like…
- sites with affiliate programs
- which ad networks are on what sites
- sites that have self-serve advertising systems
- what advertisers are running ads
You’re looking exactly where the traffic already is. Think about it: if a website is in the top 5,000 most popular on the entire internet, they’re probably doing something right, right?
Popularity is a crude measurement of quality, but it’s good when you’re looking for affiliate programs. The more popular a website is, the more you can be sure they have something that people actually want and the more you can be sure their offer actually converts.
Check out the Quantcast list and start investigating. Hopefully you can find yourself some new offers to promote and think about niches that you never knew were so popular. Just watch out for all the disturbing sex fetish porn sites that you will encounter in your research if you’re scared of that kind of thing 😮
