    Right now on my blog I am using AdSense and like the title says it sucks. I am makeing anywhere from a few cents a day to 5 bucks. Thats not too bad of a deal but you can always do better. I would like to improve my profits somehow. I would prefer to sell off advertising space but idk how to do that. The blog is also a technology blog and without giving too much away it has to do with wordpress and other cms. I'm open to any and all suggestions you guys might have.

    Have you tried to promote your artciles on social media?

    I mean, as a I see it, you have more of a traffic problem than an adsense problem.

    So I would recommend you start looking for ways to scale your traffic souces. The best and cheapest way is through social media.

    Try to bring more good real traffic to your website and feel the difference. If you built your site with huge amount of traffic then you can get some extra income through the Adsense.

    Adsense is only as good as your website is.

    To make any decent money from banner advertising aka Adsense, you really need to be pushing a lot of traffic to your site. Also your profits will heavily depend on what niche you are in, because any insurance/finance related sites will pay more per click compared to sites about socks and underwear.

    Adsense does not suck, you just need traffic.
