    Hi, for 1-2 months ago I created a blog with intentions to make maybe 1-2 bucks per day. To get there I were going to use sharecash, so I started to post 1-2 posts per day and now I got about 50 total, after about 1month I got tired of it because I weren't making alot, maybe 6$ for the first month.
    Now after a while I'm back and I'm not going to give up this time. The first thing I checked when I decided to start again was that I had gotten 15$, still a low amount in my opinon. From about 30 min searching I figured that Adsense would be a good option to mix with sharecas so I set it up. 2 days ago I got approved and I have got a total of ~2,-2,5$ so far. (648 page impressions and 5 clicks. <- I have no idea what those numbers means :D)
    The blog is hosted by Blogger and got about 500 daily visits atm, but it can of course variate alot.
    Regarding adsense I have a 728x90 ad at the top, 250x250 on the side and a 336x280 under the first post of each page. I have also melted them into the background, but I really don't see a big point doing that since a button that says "AdChoices" is always shown. Does this sound like a good placement to you?

    Basicly what I'm woundering is if you guys got any tip for me how I can increase my income, if I should switch from sharecash to anything else or make the downloads avaible for free? Is adsense the best way to go or is there any other options?
    Is there any more way to make money on the blog that I can add besides sharecash and adsense?

    Thanks

    Yeah, you can add articles and reviews that link in and lead to relevnat products and services you ' suggest ' within the article/review content and lead the visitor back to your clickbank link.

    Still works. I make solid income every month from that method alone, by doing it for multiple niche markets.

    Takes about 10-15 minutes to whip out a couple hundred words for an article/review, creating 4 for the month, per niche market, posting once a week and promoting the heck out of them.

    I don't have to worry about the blog networking issues because they are standalone niche markets and therefore, standalone niche site properties.

    Monotize your site as an authority site instead of an ad portal with adsense and the like. Keep the clients coming back to your site for relevant, related content, product and services. Don't give them away to google or one of these other services...or to their advertisers for that matter.

    Sorry, as may have noticed I'm kind of new to this so you might have to explain a little bit more detailed how to do what you suggested. And will that method work well even if there are many more bloggs about the same thing?

    if you desire to follow only white hat then Adsense is the best option for you dude. I don't think you need any other program to join to increase the revenue. so stay in adsense and struggle. just do good quality backlinking and high quality posting. its all :)

    You can find relevant forums or blogs within your niche, and build quality backlinks from there. The key is to be consistent with your backlinking strategy; meaning if you build 100 backlinks a month, then you should do the same the following month as well.

    I really don't know how to actually build those links on a different guys blog. I mean the only strategy I know to build the link on a different blog is if I comment enought so my name, link will be shown on the top comment list on some bloggs, so how do I build a backlink on a different normal blog :rolleyes:?
