    Hello All,
    Sorry to keep bugging you guys, you've been a great help, but I have a few more questions. Here's the scenario.
    I have a domain set up, and I have set up and auto blog following ernesthemingway's guide. I have also thrown in my own posts every now and then. I have set up an account with Adbrite & Adsense but now I'm stuck.
    QA) I've placed some code snippets for ads, but what positioning is best for views etc.
    QB) Is Adbrite/Adsense the right choices, if not why and who should I choose?
    QC) What way's are there to increase my traffic and other ways to monetize my site?
    And feel free just to answer one question, I know I'm asking alot.
    Kind Regards,
    Gaming Daemon

    These are pretty general questions, and are covered in dozens of threads over the forum, search and you'll find a lot of info.

    Generally speaking:
    QA: Experiment with what is best for your site, it really depends on the theme. Right below the banner (wide banner ad), in/around the first couple of paragraphs of each post (square ad) and at the top of the left sidebar (skyscraper ad) work best for me.

    QB: Adsense is generally best, but be careful with running Adsense with autoblogs. Probably worth promoting some affiliate products as well.

    QC: That's the golden question, there are hundreds of ways. SEO is best for long term traffic, but it takes time, PPC is best for quick results but it will cost you.

    to answer your question, yes, blogs do help you in the SERP if you have keyworded them correctly. Meaning is your keyword in the h1 tag, and if it is, it has to be exactly as the keyword you want to rank for, do not spin it, it hurts you later. I believe someone before me did say that SEO is long term and PPC is short term, he is correct. However, if you are looking to monetize your site, SEO is the way to go because it gives continuous traffic as opposed to PPC which gives you the traffic you pay for.

    For the blogs, also choose secondary related keywords so that if you are not picked up for the primary keyword you can be picked up for the secondary keywords. I normally like to bold tag my main keyword and italic tag my secondary keyword for my little attempt at on site SEO.

    Lastly it is always worth it to do blogs and SEO them properly. SEO is a long process, and monetizing a site is an even longer process. You have to put in the work now in order to reap the rewards later.
