    ...on average how much can a site make from adsense or other advertising for a site like this? This particular site gets its traffic organically from a competitive keyword. I do no advertising, SEO or other promotion for this site.

    I'm thinking of ideas to take advantage of this site. Right now, it's just a multi page profile with info, pics, contact stuff, etc.

    What do you think?

    It's a little hard to help you too much since we don't know more about this site, but I would start with simple borderless matching color blue link Adsense banner on the site and take it from there. Is there a particular CPA that you think would convert or any product?

    Don't reveal exactly what niche you are in but if you can check you keywords CPC .
    I think we can tell you how much approx it can make with adsense .
    Also today i just discovered a keyword with a CPC of 4$ that pays 43$ with CPA !!
    Moral : Adsense is not always the best option :) especially if your traffic is targeted

    Ya but CPA's are harder to covert because adsense all you need is a click

    In my opinion I dont like putting adsense on a site, it gives google a look into your site.

    Let's just say my site is a restaurant/nightclub (though it isnt). The site itself is kinda a niche. It's a very popular site and for the niche it is #1 in the world. There are nearly 100,000 searches monthly for this niche of which my site gets a substantial percentage.

    There is a main niche which my site does not rank for at all but could very easily with SEO and some effort. Like I said, my site is actually the number 1 (let's say restaurant/nightclub) for the main keyword in the world according to reviews, ratings and popular vote. The monthly average of searches for the main keyword exceed 650,000.

    The average bid price for the niche keyword is $1.8 and for the main keyword is low at around .60 cents.

    Since it's a "restaurant/nightclub" im not sure what kind of affiliate programs I can use. I'd rather just stick with adsense and work out conventional online advertising ads. There's not a lot of value to the site as it stands but there could be. I just wanted to take a figure to the CEO of how much the site is capable TODAY of making on autopilot through adsense to attempt to justify a redesign and expanded functionality.

    This site seems like a gold mine.

    Why don't you throw up some adsense ads and see how much it's bringing you in? Then just go from there.

    exactly. Its impossible to put a fixed dollar amount on any amount of traffic. too many variables. you need to monetize in at least one way to have something to compare to. Start with adsense if your unsure.
