    Well, I know that most of you are already making your millions, but for me I have been struggling to make $1/day. It took me 6 weeks of building my blog and adding content.

    Ad**nse has me at 14 clicks on 125 page impressions. Obviously, low pay, but moving upward. My analytics show 30 uniques for SE's per day. Unfortunately, they are only sticking for about 30 sec. on average.

    I wish that I could get my visitors to stay longer. This is a completely White Hat blog that is in a popular area.

    I started with directories and build 300 with PR 3 or higher (which took forever), then moved to articles on PR 3 or higher, then blogs at 25 comments a day on ********. Some were Disqus, some were others. I have not done any online PR, but as this grows, I hope to do some.

    Any advice on how to get people to stay on your site for 2 min. or longer? I have a few vids to mix with posts.

    I really need to get to $100/day, but am not sure I can keep up this pace of White Hat due to time constraints.

    Thanks everyone...I'm on my way to catching up to you all!

    If you want to keep it whitehat I say play with your template/design. That way you can make the most of your adsense money. Do some more advertising. There's a million ways to do it right here on the forum youtube,articles,twitter,etc

    IMHO adsense is crap, change the template of your blog and promote affiliate products

    > revamp your template (design/colours/fonts)
    > make your blog look pleasant and inviting
    > don't paste ads all over
    > offer genuine information that people are looking for
    > don't use too many videos, small attractive images are better

    Get someone to review your blog, and they'll tell you what needs to be changed.
    If you're ok with it, you can post your link here, I'm sure you'll get good feedback.

    You must do exact the opposite to earn with adsense.

    Why do you want to keep them longer on your blog?
    I want my blog readers to get out of my site as quick as possible
    and hopefully through a good positioned and targeted adsense ad.

    Your website visitor comes to your site because he's searching for some
    information. If you offer him good content that he's looking for then
    he is done, he wont search more and he wont click your ads.
