    Hi,

    just set up a semi auto blog a few days ago and did some minor web 2.0 promotion which actually worked pretty well after three days I have about ten keywords I own the first page of google (surely no buying keywords). But hell that's okay for three days.

    Mainly it's a site about "funny stuff" and yesterday night I received about 5000 UV's from web 2.0 page. I had the Big G's adds on it and didn't receive one click of it.

    Man I know that's no converting traffic but it's not like it was refer spam or hits from somekind of a bot. The G's adds are inbedded okaily into the posts. But not one conversion?

    Got a hint what I am doing so wrong? Just signed up for a few CPM aff's. Can you recommend anyone or do you have another tipp how to monetize this?

    Thanks in advance guys

    Would help if we could see your ad placement, colors, what ads are being displayed etc.

    Social networking traffic is rubbish, you would be lucky to earn a $2 CPM, also since its an autoblog this kind of traffic tends to be web savvy and will realise its just spam, view it then leave.

    saw the exact same thing on my blog .. got lots of UV's from social sites in the beginning and didint get many click... and then I posted some content which was not duplicate, did some keyword research and appropriately optimized these posts..

    Now I dont get much traffic about 100-200 UV's per day but I have had enough clicks to get me going.. i even got paid $2.02 for a single click..now that is pure quality keyword optimized content..and on one particular day my ECPM touched $99.

    so my tip to you is.. do a thorough keyword research,optimize the page for these keywords and do some amount of social bookmarking,backling building.. if you are getting organic traffic from the keywords you chose, you are sure to get a great results.

    cheers!

    5000 UV from web20... would be better to monitize it with CPM over CPC ads at that rate and with such a low CTR

    try ADSDAQ set a low cpm to start with adsense as a backup tag, and then increase cpm as you feel its justified
