    I have a music blog that has recently been getting between 100-200 unique visits a day, i am using Adsense but my CTR is a measly .53%. 11,000 impressions with only 60 clicks.

    My question is what is the best way to monetize it? Should I write some articles and use clickbank? Maybe be an affiliate with a music e-book or something?

    Any help would be appreciated. I just feel like I'm wasting all these visits.

    11,000 impressions per day? per week?

    Think, what would your users benefit from? Music mixing software? Then it would be clickbank.

    Perhaps you could sell credit for purchasing music online as an affiliate. Don't know if iTunes offers that. Or you could promote a music related CPA offer.

    .53% CTR... I'm unhappy when my CTR is below 5% lol...

    I think he's talking monthly or something, but calculations still aren't going through right if its 200 visits a day by 30 days

    Might want to try adbrite with inline text and full page ad's it can make a large improvment and is easy to setup.

    I think the ebook idea would be better for this traffic. But you can try split testing many different ads,

    CPA
    clickbank
    you could even sell banner space :p

    11,000 adsense impressions all time. The jump in traffic has been a recent one. My site is still fairly new. This month I have 5,000 impressions so far, and i had 2,300 last month. Before then my average visits per day were between 5-25 or so

    All depends on the keywords. If their broad, vague keywords you're gonna have a hard time converting that. Look at any long tails you get and try to monetize those

    My suggestion is keep Adsense, but do some adjustment to increase the CTR such as Adsense ads size, placement, colors of url ,text and background.
    With 336x280 under post title and below the article should increase your ctr. I always have above 3% CTR with this ads placement in my blog and i only use 2 ads block, below post title and below article. I use smartads plugin for wordpress to add the ads.
