    I have a handful of sites receiving 10k+ pageviews a month and -other than $30 in adsense and 50 or 60 people clicking the amazon link to related books but not purchasing - have not been able to properly monetize.

    The niche has a handful of directly related CPA offers on click bank, a crazy amount of books, entire institutions that make a lot of money off of these types of clients, and other clothing and items on amazon and other places that are directly related.

    Anyone with some ideas of how I could finally squeeze a couple bucks a day even out of these sites? It is 12 sites total most have 5k pageviews a month but 4-5 of them are 10-15k and they are all related to the same niche as I was originally going to sell ad space on them as I can offer 80-100k views a month TOTAL but not per site so things like buysellads are out of the question. Please help :p I feel like step one is done, step two monetizing remains a mystery.

    I am sorry if this is in the wrong area I wasn't really sure what would be best.

    If you're offering something that people really want and is fairly difficult to find you might want to consider content locking. With that kind of traffic you could make a bomb in no time.

    Would this be like email submits on top of the content? I am signed up with several different CPA sites from the last few years but never really found a way to use them. Is there an easy to use plugin to make my blog content unlockable on wordpress? Thanks for the advice and any help on getting in the right direction is greatly appreciated.

    Lots of CPA networks like *************************************************************** and Adscend are offering built in content lockers, but of course buying Content Lock Pro is a must if you're serious into this.

    My articles are autoblog content so not super crucial that I imagine most people would click but even a handful a day per site would be cool. Should I be deterred by the fact that the same info can be found all over the net or just give it a shot? And does adsense care if your website has a content lock on it?

    Also, instantdollarz has a shitty looking setup is there an easy way to find out what are the simplest offers? Simple email submits would be great or do they all require addresses etc? A lot of these seem to go on for so long I can't imagine myself personally completing one or giving out my home address etc.

    Many of the offers convert after the user has put their e-mail address in. That means as soon as they press "submit" on the offer page after having put their e-mail in, you'll get $1-$2.

    I would remove adsense if you're going to try content locking.

    If you decide on content locking (worth a shot, with all that traffic you should get SOME conversions) I'd recommend Content Lock Pro (link in my sig), or if you can't afford it you could test out a locker hosted by a CPA network such as AdscendMedia, though this is not as good as using Content Lock Pro.
