    I have an autoblog with 250 visitors per a day about general health and weight loss,
    I just can't seem to find a way to make any money with him
    I got amazon in the sidebar
    I used to have MH but I didn't make anything with it

    What the hell am I doing wrong?

    Ur not using something like adsense. Only if someone buys something from amazon u get a percentage and the chance someone buys something via your site is very low

    If you are using WordPress get he easy adsense plugin and stick the large rectangle ads at the top of every post. With 250 visitors a day you'll get clicks that's for sure.

    My autoblogs with just 10 visitors a day make money!

    Adsense is a piece of shit no offence, I mean I tried using adsense I made like 0.20$ per a week from my blog.
    beside the fact that they ban me...
    Listen I know that it take a while to sell through amazon or market health
    but lets say I'm selling 1 thing through MH I will get more money than I got with adsense

    So maybe I need to try another way to try and sell MH products?

    Since you used the words "autoblog" and "general" I think that your traffic isn't targeted enough to make money selling stuff.

    The health and weight loss niche covers a lot of topics and targeted traffic will be focused on only one of these topics.

    A lot of people with problems in these areas usually start with reading to identify their exact problem and the cause before they start looking for a solution.
    Once they do this their searches won't be general like in their orientation phase.

    Move away from your general approach and settle in a smaller segment of the niche and focus on solutions instead of giving information.
    Your traffic will drop, but will be more inclined to pay if they like the solution they find on your blog.

    Hi all,

    Im having the same problem. Im running a semi-auto blog 1 month ago. It now has approx. 100 UVs per day and each visits about 1.5-2 pages. It makes about 200 pageviews aday. Im using adsense but CTR is 0% atm.

    My niche is about software/programming.

    Should I use CPM? If yes, could you plz recommend any trustable one?

    You need to experiment a bit with adsense to find placements that convert well for you. Don't give up too soon. Keep it running for a couple more months to see how it works out for you before dropping it totally. It's free money, after all. :)

    I go on digital point and sell blogpost for 20$, and links for 20$ a month. I have only 2 autoblogs that have page rank right now. I should have a few more soon once google ranks my blogs.

    That said i made 200$ this month doing this. Right into my paypal account, then send the check to my house and go buy silver. Im going to buy 100oz silver when my adsense check and paypal check comes.

    Also i almost forgot i have 25$ a month cashflow right now. Meaning i have already made 25$ in april haha.

    I request 25$ from this debt consolidation company, and they make so much money that they just pay me without thinking because the guy who buys the links doesnt know much about seo other then what he has read in a book lol. So he just pays the bills and when i bill him through paypal he just sends the money.

    I also have friends on DP who are cliets of mine. And if i ever get a new website rank they ask me to Pm them and they will send me 8$ for a page rank 4, 14$ for a page rank 5 or whatever.

    Now remember im using blogger so these are free and once they are index i just sell as many links as possible.

    Next month i want to do 400$ in link sales.

    Cant believe what the hell im reading here. Your wondering what your doing wrong, using Amazon Ads in the sidebar of an Autoblog that targets weightloss is your answer.

    Why on earth would you use Amazon ads, they have a poor conversion rate at best and you only get around 10% sales commission.

    You couldnt ask for a better niche when it comes to adsense and weightloss autoblogging? Extremly targeted ads with crazy pay per click amounts. $10 clicks are quite common in the weightloss niche through adsense. Should be able to get at least 8% - 12% CTR, you have atleast a $50/day adsense site sitting in your possesion. Thats if your actually getting 250 visitors a day and looking for weight loss info.

    Oxynom, $1 - $2 par day with 1000 visitors is ridiculous. You could get 10 - 20 x that much money with a well optimised adsense setup.

    Can you guys post your urls and i will take a look and give you set by step instructions on how to kill it with adsense.

    Yeah I totally agree, you really should be full on with AdSense on this blog. I am an Amazon affiliate but I wouldn't waste my time using their ads on a blog in this niche.

    this site is not targeted to any niche, and as anyone knows adbrite doesn't give you a fortune.

    So you think it's lame, you got something better with autoblogs. or are you just trying to be a smart ass
