    my blog gets over 100,000 hits monthly but only earns $1/day on adsense

    i have 3 ads placed on the blog

    i allow all ad catagorizes and ad networks except gambling & betting

    it's a video games blog, the majority of revenue earned is through sponsorships and affiliate links

    i even have a google doubleclick for publishers account but i don't know how to use it

    how do i earn more from adsense?

    For a quick buck you could try pop unders.

    Its hard to say what you'll earn because it depends on different factors.

    But roughly speaking 100k visitors can make you $300 depending on where your traffic comes from

    Something is seriously wrong. Not sure what it is because there is a lot of variables involved, maybe look into popunders as mentioned above you could easily earn $300+ with that kind of traffic. My buddy owns a very popular and well established popunders company with low min payout and auto deposits to PayPal every cycle, very great network. Let me know if you're interested, I can get your foot in the door.

    i don't know if you can set up popunders on adsense

    but i just setup DFP for a 160x600 ad at $1/1000 impressions for a month just as a test

    got 257k hits last month... i can't believe i'm earning so low with just $1 per day :(

    by the way do you guys mean $300+ per day or per month? :p

    3-4 years i believe

    728 x 90 top page ad

    300 x 600 side ad

    160 x 600 side ad

    the thing is that i use adsense ads with amazon cpm ads - copy code from adsense into amazon cpm and then paste that ad code into blog... 3 ads in total

    on amazon cpm i only earned $35.74 in the last 30 days

    on adsense i only earned $36.75 in the last 28 days

    so adsense => amazon cpm -> blog

    on amazon i have all ads on $1 target cpm

    should i just directly use adsense -> blog ???

    im pretty sure your niche depends on how much you'll make from adsense. video games doesn't pay that well, so as said above i'd try cpa offers. your niche is pretty important when it comes to adsense

    i am already doing cpa with a few affiliate programs

    one day i logged into my adsense account and it said i had earned $200+ yesterday, i was shocked... but i never received that amount on my payment... i don't know if it was a glitch or not

    i am using a free blogspot template, can a free template steal your adsense money? lol

    should i try making a new adsense account and using that one?


    in the past month ive got traffic sources from facebook, reddit, google, a few deals sites, etc.

    Ok but HOW? That matters. Are these popups, popunders, ads, etc? How is the traffic reaching your site?

    I wouldn't go down the popunder route as has been suggested. Seems you've established quite a site for yourself and in my experience popunders have killed traffic in the long run and they don't make as much as other methods. CPA can work, but you have to give it careful thought as you can't just present the offers like everyone normally does. I sent you a PM.

    LOLLLL!

    Don't go overboard on your CPA's. Your a trusted site, don't try to sell a product in a different industry than your niche. Try making most of your promotions seamless. You grew your sites traffic to 100K a month, now its time to grow your bank account, I have faith in you OP!

    I'm aware, I "LOLL"ed at his suggestion, then further continued on giving advice to OP, totally ignoring the banned member. But come to think of it, we BOTH are wasting our time talking about the time we are wasting on replying to a banned member.
