    Hi, I have been fairly successful with SEO, but have had very low conversion rates.

    I market in two ways:

    -Adsense right in the top-middle of every page
    -Product reviews
    -A page with sample products

    However I have only sold 2 so far.

    I use clickbank and CJ and Adsense.

    Any tips to increase conversion rates?

    I get about 150 unique a day.

    With those stats, AdSense should convert decently (as in a couple bucks a day)
    You may want to review what cpa or affiliate offers you are using. Your unique visitor count isn't really too high either so drive more traffic

    Have you tested different positions of adsense to see what improves CTR? There are also several wordpress themes that are designed specifically to improve CTR so it might be worth checking those out?

    How is your backlinking campaign, do you have a steady output of backlinks, and are they diverse (on both no follow and "do follow") and are they being placed on relative, high authority pages? If your output of backlinks varies a lot (one day you post 500 the next day 0) or you have too many backlinks on follow sites but not enough on the no follow sites you may want to even it up a bit as well as steady the pace. I have a lot more traffic increasing tips on hubpages just check out my profile.:)

    I display just one ad in the middle, maybe I should use one of these ad boxes with 3 ads in them?

    If all you have on the site is one ad block, then add some more. You're allowed up to 3 ad blocks and 3 text link blocks.

    what is your keyword? if it some kind of buy keyword like review, cheap, etc than you have higher chance to earn from it (but not always!)

    if you have good pr then you can try selling link or post paid review maybe?

    I get the most bang for the buck, by 80% by having the 250 x 300 3 ad block in the middle of the page, half above the fold.

    Example at www.stupiddamncomputer.com

    In this site's case, this ad size and location out performs every type, size and location combination that I tried, and I split tested for over a year.
