Question Finding targets with decent traffic

One of the main problems I seem to be running into is finding targets that generate any decent amount of traffic. Obvious ones like Amazon, Walmart etc generate a couple thousand impressions per day for me but any attempt to actually find more targeted traffic fails miserably.

I've accidentally targeted ebay, youtube and google with hilarious result. Ebay was the only one that gave intriguing results.

I really want to find success with something other than an email/zip submit. Is there any way to find decent targeted traffic on Mediatraffic or DirectCPV or do I really need to pick more general targets and just try to work campaigns through to profitability?

Does this get better on Leadimpact and Traffic Vance or will it always be an issue? Example would be 700+ targeted URLs including about 300 root domains for payday loan type traffic on both MT and DCPV = about 30 views for the day. I need much more than that to test effectively. #1 on almost all bids clear up to .055

Another question...I would really like to play with campaigns targeted to other niches that I push through other traffic sources. Examples would be stuff available through Commission Junction, Shareasale and Linkshare. Amazon Associates is another one. Is there any issue driving traffic through an established landing page to these kind of networks?

Might be worth pulling out some keywords to see if I can gets things rolling and stumble onto some decent targets. Could smoke my balance but will be an interesting experiment.

Loading up Mediatraffic with a serious amount of keywords. I'll move my limit back down to $10/day to give myself a bit more time to react.

Keyword targeting seems to get me all the traffic I want. My landing pages are still proving a major issue though. After 150 impressions in about 20 minutes all I managed was that one click in the beginning. I may have to find someone that knows what they are doing to get me a good landing page for CPV.

Until I can actually test a successful landing page I'm going to be in the dark.

The keyword targeted traffic kind of reminds me of 7search or other 2nd/3rd tier PPC...where the traffic is coming from a ton of cruddy search engines and parked domains. I've had success converting similar before. I think I can make this work if I can get past my lander issues.

on the pay day loans were you bidding the minimum on every target? Seems like there would be high competition you might need to up the bids if you want to see more traffic. At the same time I will also say I dont really like direct cpv its all I have tried but im planing on switching to Lead Impact asap

I actually upped the bids to #1 for both MT and DCPV. Yeah, I started with DCPV and hated it. Half the time I can't even manage campaigns because their control panel thing is down. That's why I started with MT too.

Now I'm wishing I had just started with LI.

Looks like some of my issues are with MT freezing up on me. It might have something to do with a lander with exit pop accidentally getting into my rotator. Everything is approved and good to go but no traffic.

I went ahead and duplicated the campaign to see if the new copy would work right.
