    I have absolutely no idea who would be searching for next years holidays.

    I put up offers for cigars as gift, free ipad for xmas, holiday credit card, vacation package, and 1000 impressions later? NO clicks - absolutely nothing - forget about conversion!

    I used header banner like 600 wide, at the very top.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks in advance for any idea.

    So you are just slapping random crap and hoping people will just magically start buying?

    You need targeted traffic in order to sell something

    I think you are talking about adsense impressions.did you buy 1000 impression for you site hoping you would get clicks. Well it really does not work. And you have to be careful if you are buying traffic and hoping for clicks. Start with SEO. Or post on forums and yahoo answer. Look for your customers and get your site in front of them. It really does matter what you sale. Its all about getting your site in front of your customers. It takes effort.

    hmm.. didnt think my question is ambiguous.. ok.

    the audience is that people who search for the dates of next years holidays. so i certainly did not waste money on those fake impressions. i did get the impression number from adsense. i am obviously not trying to get clicks only. i am saying that i do not even get clicks with products that i thought would work for the audience.

    so my question is all about what i should sell.

    maybe i'll try to make my question clearer:

    so my audience is looking for the dates of next years holidays. I dont know who they are. However, since they are looking for the dates, they are probably planning for a vacation or something. So, I sell them vacation package or holiday credit cards.

    what do people do other than vacation, on holidays? I would think they buy and give gifts. So I put up the gifts.

    Obviously somehow they are not what i think they are...

    find a travel agent that pays for referrals if you have decent traffic for the niche you might be able to make good money.

    or try to be specific to an holiday.

    how will you be serving the ads? on a page or newsletter every aspect of a ad campaign matters

    "being specific to a holiday" is a good suggestion.. that would mean quite a bit of work.

    I did try vacation packages but did not even get a click, let alone sales. maybe you are right that i need more contents other than just dates.

    it would be useful information if I know what adsense ads they have clicked. i wonder if there is a way to do that?
