    The website is www.mined.com.au and was just a temporary design but its receiving about 300 views per day, mostly from China.

    How can I monetise this?

    I imagine that people from China visiting an Australian mining website would be looking to make investments or something like that..

    Any affiliate programs that you can think of? Or something other than affiliate programs?


    Also, does anyone have relevant content that they would be willing to guest post if I updated the site?


    Take care.

    Join a parking co, the traffic isn't going to be worth much though. Somewhat suspect that it is chinese traffic going to a .com.au, you sure it isn't bots?

    Can you recommend who to park with?

    I know it wouldn't be worth much, wasn't planning on putting much effort in. I'm sure a lot are bots but seems there are a few genuine at least.

    If it is just one name I'd start with Sedo. If you have a lot of names with traffic to park then join a bunch and use a rotation service like above.com.

    Can you drill down on what is actually bringing them to your website? Which engine is sending them to you ? I'd be curious to see if it's bots/hackers as well.

    If they're genuine, why not put up some content for them specifically. Possibly a survey and definitely a opt in.

    Once you find out what is driving the traffic you can build links to keep them on your network of sites.
