    So I've been working on this site since October 2013... So about 5 months. I currently get around 1000 visitors a day, but I'm really not making any sort of money on this site and I'm not sure why. I get about $2 a day from Adsense with multiple clicks (though for the keywords the Avg. CPC is meant to be around $2 per click >:/)... I also promote a Clickbank product with a presell page but that has over 150 hops with zero sales whatsoever.

    What should I do? Are there any guys here making money online who are willing to take a look at my site and offer suggestions? I can offer cash in return if you want.

    It's a niche authority site, so preferably somebody who is used to building niche sites.

    It might be that your site is not properly optimized for high CTR. If you want, I can take a look, and give you some advice. You can send your URL via PM.

    I don't think adsense is great way to make decent money. Better focus on creating info product or promoting affiliate product. As for "a Clickbank product with a presell page": Ether you are promoting wrong product to wrong audience, or your landing page is bad.

    I'd start building an email list. If you plan on keeping this site around for a long time, start building a double/confirmed opt-in list now, and start working on your email marketing skills. Even if you never figure out how to mail them, you'll be able to find someone who can manage the data for you. Depending on your niche, you might be able to set up some kind of ping tree so that you can build your list and make money off of the records as they come in.

    What is your site monetized model? Adsense or CPA? Sounds to me , you're throwing everything in. You need to fine tune them accordingly.

    It might just be your available universe at the moment with your site. If you want to make $200, a day, then do X 100 your current site.
