    I have a site which is getting 1500-2000 UV's a day but I'm just making 5$ from it. The site is a PDF search engine. I only display one adsense ad.

    What should I do?

    What is the maximum can I earn from it?
    How can I increase my earnings?

    I'll PM you the sites name if someone is willing to give me some ideas.


    Thanx :D

    Hmm that was not much! You should be able to earn more, are your ads planted right?

    I just display one ad on the right sidebar of the site. It's just like google displays the ads.

    You said you only display one ad, why not add 2 more? There's more advertisements to click therefore there is more money to be made. You might want to move them around a bit so they look natural and not like ads, oh and make sure you do some color matching.

    Instead of having the Ad in the sidebar, try putting it somewhere basically in the middle of the webpage, or at the beginning of your content. People read them more and get interested when you, for lack of better words, shove the ads in their face.

    What do your visitors have in common?
    They use PDF's.

    Try to find some PDF related products. Maybe something that adds functionality to the standard reader or the pro version of an alternative.

    Promote those.
    If you keep your Adsense space (I assume that's what you were talking about) make sure not to promote any "illegal" soft like password crackers or something that lifts the security settings in a PDF.

    throw up a gateway that goes away for 24 hours after they do a cpa offer. that's a really small price to pay for having access to your library of information.

    I wonder if the traffic is eager or desperate enough to go through a survey for the PDF.
    It's not porn, movies or music.

    I tried it once with public domain images in a certain niche. I had 20 Gig of images up there, about 10% pretty unique. it didn't work with the gateway.

    A bit of topic, but something else did work.
    Instead of downloading them one by one I offered the images on DVD at a fair price. I'm still making money from it...:D

    i think they would be if they're looking for something that will really help them out.
    plus it would be better earnings than what he has now, all he needs is one or two conversions to make more then what he has now. and the surveys are usually enticing enough...

    adsense sucks.. try to match the google font with the search results of your site
