    Well in past 2 years I earned like 1500$ from Adsense but with all money and time invested, I'm even thinking that it wasn't worth it. After panda update my site dropped like a rock and I bought a couple of new domains to try something new but after I see my ctr is 0.60% and 0.30$ for click - I just want to give up but even if I give up - I don't have something to do, i'm totally jobless. I know SEO etc but after I see that traffic is decent but earnings still are like nothing, I'm lazy to do almost anything.

    I setup one amazon site (I found good keyword) but I'm skeptic about it, I'm not sure am i able to sell something - my logic always was that's easier to make people to click on an ad rather then make them buy something. Am I wrong or selling something online isn't even so hard?

    Anyways tell me what to focus on so I can by the next year buy some car and earn like $5000 (trust me I'd rather work something offline but in my country we don't even have mcdonalds)

    So what, CPA, amazon, CJ .. ? (but i wouldn't like to invest much if any)

    Also I'm open for JV if is someone interested :)
    Thanks

    Do not bet your rent or food budget on IM. If you have to choose between buying food or buying a site IM is not for you. Also if you are lazy, easily disappointed and loath to learn new stuff, again IM is not for you.

    Small sites, poor content, lousy videos with cpa monetizing can only take you so far. Just like any other business IM demands it's pound of flesh in the form of time, patience and monetary investment.

    Haha no no, I didn't bet my real money on it anyways. I bought domains and hosting and tools like scrapebox only from money i earned online.

    Hmm.. I'm not lazy but it's much more motivating if you see that you actually earned something :)

    Amazon? Why not just run both Adsense and Amazon..
    Looks like you just need more traffic..

    Hm yes definitely I need more traffic but it sucks that CTR is that low. I'm not expecting to be a milionaire over night but.. somehow it's too low.. or maybe that's just me.

    Meh when will people stop relying on SEO for their income!

    It's great when your top but as soon as you drop your fucked.... Concentrate on traffic strategy's and have SEO as a back end kinda thing that just happens and is great if it's there but not the life and soul of your business.

    If you want to continioue with adsense go and see what wsotesters doing. Type in google wsotesters and go to their site and start working like they.

    Second option which is tested from me is affiliate marketing from ClickBank. Download and watch for example affiloblueprint that you can get sites creation feeling and research, than put on something unique from you and start making money with affiliate marketign.

    Why not try some BSTS that offer targeted traffic for adsense sites? You can even product launch a $5 e-Book for a popular niche and use Adwords to promote it. I currently go for mns cpc of $4+ for most of my sites unless traffic is huge then $2+. I buy traffic, and forget about relying just solely on Google Searches. The problem is, you didn't think outside the box for those 2 years. I'm pretty sure that the niche you are in is FAILING you, so either ramp it up or make another site in a populated over saturated niche, buy traffic, win with adsense clicks. Insurance is hard and should be ignored, but if you can find a niche where people are very likely to buy like pc parts or something with a better cpc, then go ahead and use it.

    I really just think that if you want short term cash, go into seo work. If you want long term money, go into product launching for a popular niche. If you are lazy, buy huge sums of traffic for a cpm site and profit. If you are like me, you will try every method on BHW and see which you can make work for you. The resources are here, no go dig them up like gold and silver. The "blood" for your "needle" just simply needs a plan, you need to know where the blood is, what type of blood it is, how the blood works and flows, and how much blood to take. Use that analogy for your website adventures.

    hm as you said I probably didn't think outside the box. I need to find niche with good niche that could result with good CTR and I need to go with better technique. I'm thinking to make review blog, it might result in good CTR and CPC as well ...

    Well if some of you earn here decent money from adsense, then I could too, at least some money make from it.
    As maxok said, this is IM I think I always forgot that.
    Thanks to all, really great advices here. :)

    Yeah I tried only once, someone shared some ebook with me on CPA and I had cpa lead account but I only tried it once. Beside that I didn't try anything else but Adsense.
