    Alright, so at the risk of sounding like a huge noob, I want to ask for some advice. In just under a month I've managed to get on the first page of google for my keyword niche, which is also in my title. I rank number three on the page but now I want to know how to really scale it up. Should I apply to some cpa networks now? I wanted to wait until I could garner some more traffic. Right now I'm using adsense and have only made about $18 and that was mostly through facebook. So, I'm just wondering how to capitalize on the position that I'm in.

    Depends on the niche of the site and "money value" of the particular keywords bringing in the traffic from the search engines. Is your keyword bringing buyers to your site? Or is it bringing people wanting to be entertained? etc...

    Depends on your niche...
    If your think that there will be some good offers in CPA networks to promote related to your niche, then CPA is the way to go. But sometimes, it is more profitable to monetize a site through CB/CJ aff products than CPA offers. So it entirely depends on your niche. ;)

    One thing, don't just sit back after getting a single site on Page on. Try to get #1 and then scale things up. Build more sites, do more SEO, earn more $$$ :D

    Good luck,
    Bk...

    Advice about what?

    e.g. If you're offering advice about how to improve your credit score or how to get loans with bad credit, then CPA offers are the best to work with. You will make like $15-25 a lead.

    Totally depends ;)

    Again. You are not giving enough information for anyone to help you. You could have an advice site on what to buy. Or for example... an advice site on how to masturbate. You have buyer traffic and entertainment traffic. One converts better and one does not convert well except on impulse buys. Your market strategy will depend on many many variables.

    Well now that you are on first page continue promoting to get the #1 spot.

    Also you can expand your site for new related keywords and start ranking it for those too.

    Okay so this is a thread bump bcuz I have more questions. The site is based on personal finance but it's kind of a blog. I usually do posts on accumulating money, how to make more money, etc. I applied to adscend media with the site and got rejected.
