    Hey guys,

    For the last 3 days I had 108,000 PVs. I just earned $48.85.
    Is that normal at all? I disabled all the 3rd-party Ad Networks in AdSense
    except 5 of them (I was able to earn with them in the previous month).

    And one more question. In my AdSense reports, I earned $2.19 from one click
    and 39 impressions. I was able to figure out, that the ad network, which served
    the ad was "Google: DCLK Bid Manager". AdSense shows that eCPM was $145.69.
    Is there any way to enable it for all of my ads?

    I feel that I'm a complete noob and loosing money.

    50 bucks in 3 days, not bad but you can change the theme to get the higher CTR

    First page views are not unique visitors, so that is just to clear things up. Your visitor can visit 5 pages and not be interested in the ad that is shown, thus 5 page views that came from the same person not clicking the ads. Secondly, you really can't control much of what type of payment you'll receive from Adsense even if you start manually blocking the websites with the lowest cpc. You get smart priced, where your clicks will be monitored for value (behavior data, if they convert, etc).

    You should look into your own amazon store, or your own cpa offers for the traffic, unless you know they won't convert into sales. Easiest way to make money would be to just keep selling your traffic to advertisers or people who know how to make money with that traffic.

    "Easiest way to make money would be to just keep selling your traffic to advertisers"

    How do I do that?

    P.S. There were 100,00 unique visitors out of 108,000 page views.

    Not using adsense is one solution

    Where were the visitors from? This can have a lot to do with how much you'd make per click.

    Try split-testing with another network.

    You can easily get 10 times that if you know how to optimize traffic.

    How do I split-test it? Google DFP?
