    I am in the dating niche and get about 20-25 visitors on a daily basis which sums to 600- 750 visitors. When they visit my blog, they see a well written article with some adsense ads on it and a few affiliate links on certain posts. Now out of these 600 people, if only 2 could buy something from me, i'd be able to make a really good amount of money. Can any of you really make $50- $100 from a site that gets around 600 - 750 visitors?

    yes you can. with a 15% CTR rate, you can get like 90 clicks. That can easily make you $50. On the side, you could offer a free report or something that attracts the readers attention and get them to signup on your list. then you can market stuff to them.

    Of course you can make 50$ or even more, depends of how you pre-sell the offer. Don't forget that 50 impulsive and ready to buy visitors are worth more than 50,000 visitors that are simply curious and looking around.

    Be unique, be creative. You're already on a good start.You should Never stop trying and you'll reach your goals faster than you've ever dreamed of.

    I am using an adsense optimized template and have a huge block placed above the fold. The clickthrough rate is only 0.74%. Can't understand what to do.

    First you have to decide what method you want to use to monetize your site and focus on it.

    No point putting a bit of adsense here and affiliate links there.

    If it's affiliate marketing you are after then capture their emails with an opt in form.

    If it's adsense, get rid of other monetization and put your adsense blocks in a prominent area on your pages

    Depends on your method on monetization and the traffic you are targeting.

    With Adsense, it can be difficult but with affiliate sales its not so difficult.

    Another thing is traffic. If its really targeted then yes, you can easily make $50 from 600 visitors by proper ad placement in Adsense.

    One of my clients has a 20% sales conversion rate! Each sale makes them net profit of about $25, so that means they are making a net profit around $5 per visitor.

    How he does it? His campaigns are laser targeted and the product is real popular.

    Moral of the story: Focus on

    1. Getting targeted traffic (Pain In d Azz)
    2. Get More and More traffic (Pain In d Azz Again!)
    3. Try different methods of monetization (CPA/Adsense/Affiliate) (Pain In d Azz X 10)

    Take you time, work on these 3 things, money will come
