    I got a page which get around 300 - 400 visitors a day. But sometimes I even get 0 clicks over the whole day. But usually just 1 - 2. Still it is cash so nothing to complain about, but I'm using CTR Theme, and heard alot of people making more then that with it.. So I wonder if im doing something wrong.

    I'd like to get more clicks if possible, but no idea how I can find out/check to get more clicks. I don't use ad switching tho, because the site looks really lame when the ads are at some different spot. Should I still do that? Or anyone got other tips?

    I hope someone can help me :)

    Your niche matters. If traffic you get is for non-buying keywords then CTR theme won't help you. Also if there are no relevant ads, CTR theme won't help you. There are more criteria you could be looking for, but if the fundamentals are fucked then looking for other tweaks ain't gonna help much.

    Same here. Site is 3 months old, my EMD is #1, I have other keywords at first page also on G00gle and only in the past few days I've made a couple of bucks. For 2 1/2 months my ctr was ZERO. I put up a different theme, and it stayed at zero then went back to CTR theme and got a couple of bucks.

    My opinion is that CTR theme is crap however I agree with DamageX - some niches are just not going to bring the users that will want to click. So kw search is important but it has to also be based on niches that bring people who will click. I'm still trying to figure out what those are.

    Thanks, I think that might be the problem. My site is more an informative site then a "buy" site.

    I think it being an informative site doesn't necessarily mean you can't get traffic for buying keywords. All my sites are informative in nature, yet the traffic comes in for buying keywords and it clicks its ass off. It's all about the keyword research and what keywords you target.
