    I posted a similar thread in another forum to little fan fare but I have an adult oriented site with no nudity that gets on average 10k mostly google hits a month. I only make on average $5-10 in ads, and a whopping zero conversion on any affiliates :(

    I believe these #'s should be higher and that I'm just not doing it right. Anyone with similar traffic and better conversions?

    I'd really be interested in improving this.

    mh 5-10$ from SE traffic? that sounds really low. The crappiest traffic I got still gives me 40 bucks for 10k hits.

    Your targeting of affiliate campaigns probably suck. btw what kind of programs do you use? and how many clicks do you get to them ?

    btw, if you really want help, just post the site here and you'll get plenty of help with ad placement etc.. It's not like we are gonna hack your server and steal it.

    I don't want to violate the link policy (i'm not sure what it is) but the site is "eroticast dot net"

    I currently use etology and don't really like it.

    I'm kinda embarrassed at the look of the site and crappy conversion rates but hey I'm here to learn so fawk it. I see lots of punters posting worse shit.

    And thanks for the offer Wealthy, I added you on my AOL IM, I don't really use MSN on the my mac.....

    I don't expect much but I figure its a good sandbox for me to improve while learning since it has some traffic.

    10k should definitely produce more than that if your traffic is legitimate. I get only 4K unique per month and I get close to $12 per month. Maybe you should consider the ads position..

    Depends on what type of traffic it is, You need to test test test, you can try content locking something. There's always something every type of traffic would buy

    Even though this thread is from 2008, I will still try to help others who may be reading this. It really does depend on what type of traffic you have. There are reasons that you can buy legit traffic from adfly and linkbucks for $0.50 per thousand visitors, and that is because that is actually a decent rate of income for that many hits. I would suggest looking into selling popunders. Popunder traffic can be very good for certain niches/uses, so some sites pay very well for it. But don't assume that 10,000 hits per month is supposed to make you rich. In many niches, it barely pays the hosting costs.
