    Does this sound right for a site that averages 800-1000 uniques a day? I have 3 blogs setup, 2 are new with under 100 posts and a forum. I think I should be earning more than this... What's your experience with this kind of traffic & earnings?

    For one, Google ads won't pay much if your visitors are from third worlds. You'll see lots more CPC if visitors come from top countries but the definition. Also, the better your CTR, the better rates you'll see. One final thing, content dictates what ads will be served through Googles contextual banners and that will dictate $CPC

    Of those 800-1000 uniques, how many are actually clicking per day?

    I'm no genius but if you're getting 800-1000 uniques a day, only 2-5 are clicking, and you don't have a very expensive niche (finance/education/service providors/etc) then $0.25 a day isn't that far off..

    You need to get them to click more so try adjusting your ad placement within googles adsense placement guidelines.. forget about ads on sidebars or footers, keep them up high and in the way so everyone can see/click them :D
    Just don't break adsense policy!

    Topic for my site is gaming.

    Ads on the blog are set with adsense daemon for these 3 positions.

    *before_content
    *after_content
    *left_float

    On the forums, there are ads below the navbit globally and centered underneath the post new thread buttons on forums and showthread.

    As for Global Traffic...

    *Picture coming*

    Using 2 of these, I can't place another kind of ad can I? Was thinking of adding a rectangle block of text in first post.

    google_ad_width = 728;
    google_ad_height = 90;
