    Hi, I have built more than 100 blogs(12 domain names totally), and I have average $4.5 of daily income from google.


    I have reached my shared server account's max number of files. Which means the average ROI of my blogs is very very low. So I have some questions to ask below, hope someone can give me advice:


    1. How do I make my blog's ads more related to my content? I found most of my blogs have unrelated ads because I put those blogs under one domain name.

    2. How do I get more traffic besides usings tweet and suto social poster plugins? In this case, I have too many blogs.

    3. How do I know what niche bring me most profit? I create blogs for hunderds of topics. And the average CTR is too low, it's pretty hard to know what blogs really get clicks, not just by accident.

    4. Any way to upgrade one auto blog's profit to $10/day?

    1. You need to use better keywords.

    2. You can still use twitter with 100+ websites if you know what your doing; but I'd suggest social bookmarking, social networking and work a lot on SEO in order to bring in some nice search site traffic.

    3. Nobody is going to tell you what niches bring in the most profit.

    4. Traffic = Views = Possible Clicks = Cash
    If you get a lot of traffic on one blog each day, it might bring it up to $10.00 a day. Although I'd suggest you build up all of your blogs instead of just one.

    Any more questions? Send me a private-message.

    Good luck. :)

    Are not your subdomains on the same topic as your main domains? For example main domain being about weight loss and subdomains about weight loss diet or something?

    Also are these blogs new? Maybe the adsense bot has not had time to visit all your inner pages to give you relevant ads.

    I would focus on getting links and perhaps better quality content.

    How long did it take you to set up these blogs? At $4.5/day that's about $1600 a year. Even if it continues doing what its doing you should come out with $1400 a year of profit.

    Focus on getting each blog to $1/day before getting them to $10. Also you could keep building another 100 blogs over 12 domains and you will double your income, if not more if you used a better paying niche.

    $4/1k impressions does seem low.

    How are you monetizing? Is this Adsense? Where is it placed on your page? Why not use one of the plugins that links keywords to affiliate links? Throw in a banner ad or two? Opt-in list?

    There could be a lot of reasons you're not converting. Crappy pages...crappy traffic...traffic that doesn't match your content...poor ad placement...etc etc etc

    Yap it's low. I found only two or three of my financial niche blogs can reach almost $1/day but their traffic always low.

    As for those blogs under one domain, I think I am unable to create 20 or 40 blogs in related niches because basically those content plugins can't bring exactly what I need. It's just like an article directory, you will never know if the next article is related to your keyword or not.

    For example, I have a blog about loan, but all I can get from content sources are base on one keyword "loan". So I am forced to posting various topics about loans in the same catalogue or blog. That's why I am unable to create many blogs in micro niche under one domain name.

    And it surely causes more unrelated ads, and also hurt SEO I think.

    My blogs are slow so it may cause visitors leave before they see the ads.

    My ad placement is all right I think, but many ads are unrelated.

    I am trying default theme and freshnews theme from woo theme now, the later get better result. But once I use the same theme on different blogs, the results vary.

    I put adsense and banner ads, most banner ads are from Amazon.

    I check my web stat and I see one of my domain name has 150 visitors a day(maybe part of them came from search engine robot), but my adsense account only shows 15 ad impressions.

    Also, I am really tired of managing 100 blogs, its time consuming.



    I just sum thmy problems:

    1. can't get content based on micro niche keywords

    2. ad impressions usually much lower than my web stat

    3. unrelated ads

    4. low CTR

    1. Hi, I try to use micro niche keyword, but you know it's hardly to get content base on niche keywords. For example, I want to get content about student loan, but it turns out I can only get articles base on keyword "loans" because articles are generated from one catalogue of content, I use below plugins:

    automaticblog, unique article pro, article marketing automation, caffeinated_content_3_3_5


    2. I also use social post automatically plugin, but this plugin now can only post to 9 sites because others are blocked. Maybe it needs upgrade.


    3. Do you know how to drive 500 visitors to only one blog?

    I also think about lucks, yap I am not 100% even 70% sure why I can earn that dollars, I only know I do lots of work, create lots of blogs(just like work stupid then you'll get pennies), and I get some traffic, I also try some ways to test layout.

    As for blog's content and quality, you know anyone can make that results if he want.

    I just need to know how to make ads more related to content, and increase CTR to 2%.(I can't tell my CTR but I can tell you 2% can bring me much much more income)

    Add in more social bookmarking and directory submission. Your blogs need more backlinks.
