    k so by now im just tired and i dont know what to do..

    so screw hiding my keyword and URL.. I just want to make some money..

    I have a cell phones related blog.. gets aome decent traffic per day and has a whole lot of backlinks..

    http://mobilepurchaseguide.com/

    I have worked very hard on this and have received almost nothing..

    I tried affiliate producte..... didnt work

    I tried adsense..... $0.27 per day on very good days. :/

    I tried CPA, by first pasting banners in the code,... after that by blocking the content and then by adding the offers via an unavoidable un remivable popup window.


    NONE OF THEM GOT ME ANY $$$$

    CPA only git me $5 last month :(


    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Home Page:
    first of all the pages take ages to load.. maybe its just on my system, but i usually have no problems on that front. maybe others can try it too.

    second, your posts are way to long.. judging by your posts names and layout you probably are trying to rank your posts for pruduct name keywords, right?
    people searching for product numbers and names are people who basicly allready bought the product in their mind, and are just checking someone else's opinion to make sure they made the right dicision and to see if there aren`t some major problems with the product.
    these people just need someone to confirm they made the right choise and to point them to the best deal. just list 1 bad thing about the product, but make sure it is some small thing thats insignificant and after that list as many good things about the product you can think up and make sure you confirm that the user allready made the right choise by itself. they probably seen the specs and features before on an other site, no need to list them again. if people read something they allready know they move on to the next site. only list features or specs that are special..

    third point: i can`t find a single affiliate link on your site. these people are ready to buy the product they searched for. put some affiliate links to a store where they can buy that phone at the best price right in their face. and anchor the link something like "to get the best deal on the LG blabla click here".

    don`t offer them some cpa, they are looking to buy a phone, give it to them.

    also, i would dump the adsense alltegether. its just distracting and product names pay pennies anyway.

    and last. stop building links to your homepage. build links to the inner pages with the product name as the anchor..
    this way the posts wil rank higer in the serps for the product you are selling.
    your homepage has 3600 links and your posts have none or just a few. 3520 are pointing to your homepage.
    are any posts ranking on the first page for the product name?

    these are just a few things i would do to this site. these things work for me, but that doesn`t guarantee it will work for you...
    you just have to try some stuff and see if it helps.

    the basic concept is solid and the site looks good to.you should be able to make some money of it...

    200 hits I recommend you focus on traffic more than monetizing at this point.

    If you're serious about your site invest in it, "scared money don't make money"

    Keep at it, it'll all fall into place.

    200 visitors a day is enough to make some money from your site..

    if you cant convert at least 1 sale a day with that traffic, getting more traffic is useles, if you can`t convert 1 in 200 you wo n`t convert with 400 uniques either..

    Well, I don't know what kind of traffic you are getting, could you tell us what your top google positions are using google webmaster? Here is my suggestion, it is similar to what someone above said.

    1- Build more backlinks to inner pages, and get them ranked.
    2- See your google webmaster (hxxps://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/?hl=en), and check which search terms you are ranking for
    3- Think what kind of a person types this term into google? What do they want? What are they thinking?

    -You want to profile your "average visitor", then change each page to suite them. Here is the layout I am using, and it is being very successful (average time of a user on site has gone up)

    <h2>[relevant question the user is thinking]</h2>
    [google ad banner (468x60)/ affiliate link related to your product]
    <h2>[answer to the question. Say it in an authoritative voice, and say exactly what you think they are hoping the answer is]</h2>
    [small ~200x200 picture, related, aligned with the text to be beside it][text introducing your main body of text, and explaining the picture]
    [now, your main body]
    [at the end, try putting a crappy link (to some site they probably won't want to go to, for example say "here is a interesting site, but it is in spanish, and really confusing") Your point is that you want the user to "choose" not to go to the link, but "choose" to read on. You want your visitor to think "no thank you, that is a stupid link I won't go there"; make them think they are smarter than you]
    [now put a large adsense block 336x280]
    [END]

    -ok and try that. Just make the adsense "blend" with your template, and you will "project" the user's attention to the google ads. And only set it to text links.

    -save your old page if you don't think it is a good idea, or if you are suspicious.
    So there you go, I just gave you my general plan, a blueprint. Try it exactly as I said for 1 day, then compare your results in adsense. Tell us how it goes

    EDIT 1: **No offense to Spanish people, I just used that as an example because I cannot read Spanish, and so I chose a random language that I thought of!
    EDIT 2: Oh and you could try some cell phone CPA offer, like "free smiley for LG-xxx". I don't know much about CPA, so you'd have to see what works for you.
    EDIT 3: And try having an amazon widget with related products (chargers, etc) in your sidebar!

    Cell phones as with any electronics is pretty competitive so congrats for getting 200 visitors a day & nice site BTW.

    Check what KWs people are using to get to your page & if it's service providers then see if they have affiliate programs. If you check it out some may pay nice commissions, not sure.

    At very least slap amazon on there with links like get the best deals on LGxxxx now CLICK HERE & make the pics clickable too. These are buyers so maybe get rid of the specs and that on popular posts and tell them about it & where to get the best deals. Most people don't like amazon because low payout but it goes to 6 or 7% commission after first 7 or so items sold for month. They buy add ons such as chargers, covers & all that so it can all add up.

    I also agree drop the adsense.

    I don't think that your site could convert traffic in sales. Why? It is very simple... people on your site a looking for information about this phone, so they know where they want to buy this phone, but they want to know more info about this.
    So how make more money from this bad traffic?
    It is easy. How I say people look at information. So, you can give this information, for example about prices from different shops. They will be interested in information and will make clicks to saw it.
    What you must to do:
    1) Sing up here http://www.promoheads.com/
    2) Put in your text links like this: The phone has 3G capability which means faster upload and download speeds. Also you can compare the prices of this Phone from your city with prices from other shops HERE http://owlslook.com/?aid=24765&q=LG+KF700
    3) All the time you will change the last part of url (LG+KF700 ) on the current model. And modify your ID ( 24765 ) This is all :)

    This way you can convert every type of traffic! Have a nice day!

    make each image clickable & link it to a phone-related email submit, or an affiliate link for a similar phone on amazon, or whatever

    1st thing i think of when i see your blog is - ooo shiny phone. i wonder if i can click it. nope. too bad. :p
