    This is my first thread so be gentle.

    I have been trying to turn a profit on an automated wordpress blog but no matter what I try there doesnt seem to be any conversion of ads.

    Not sure if I am allowed to post a link to it www gadgetstech co uk

    I get around 400 - 500 uniques a day organic traffic mainly from google but was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to start making some decent cash.

    I did have adsense (until the gits cancelled my account) but I have also tried adbrite, bidvertiser, amazon and others but none of them seem to convert.

    Any ideas welcome :)

    what is your keyword? 500 is more than enough traffic. it's got to be the keyword. Usually people who are wanting to buy a product key in specific keywords.

    First impressions:

    - Change template
    - Change layout
    - Try different ads/ad placement/ad sizes

    Just my 2c

    And to add to my above post, you can have all the traffic in the world but if nothing converts then 9/10 times it's your website that's the problem.
