    Okay I've created a site because I enjoy bodybuilding.

    When I did this I used it as a learning path for myself.

    I didn't know anything about SEO/Keyword Research/Backlinks anything.

    Anyway all I started doing was I purchased a domain, created a website, started writing articles adding pictures, eventually started doing some onsite seo.

    The website is

    GoBodyNow

    I signed up for clickbank thinking it would be a good way to earn some dough.

    Does anyone know how I can monetize? I'm getting at average 250 page views a day.

    Sell some Bannerspace. Capture a list, and sell them Clickbank products.

    Thanks for the advice, how exactly would I go on and do this?

    I just signed up for adsense 1 hour ago awaiting to get my application approved.

    Although im only 17, does it matter about the Payee requirements?

    How to capture a list? Short version-but search forum. opt-in form on your website and a Aweber or I-Contact account.

    I think you have to be 18. But if I remember correctly they tell you to use someone who is over 18.

    Thats another subject,SEO. You should be doing that regardless. But if you use clickbank to monetise, just search the CB sub-forum in making money on some ideas.

    Currently have 28 backlinks (Traffic Travis)

    Thinking about purchasing a bunch off Fiverr.

    Apparently my Alexa Ranking is :2,611,001

    My site is around 1 month and 1/2 old.

    Congratulation! You have done a great job. Now you can try to get adsense account. Take some time to make some backlinks. I think you already have a good page rank. Soon you are going to get a lots of benefit from there.

    I know as soon as I put up some Amazon affiliate links my rankings dropped hardcore and ended up losing massive traffic. I would stick with Adsense.

    I might say that your site is 'not to young and not to old'. It would be better to focus on driving traffic first before monetizing. Keep working on SEO stuff especially on doing backlinks. It would give your site some points to earn ranks on SERP's. Give your site at least 3-4 months to earn decent traffic. Once you got enough, start monetizing. I suggest Adsense. :D

    Thanks for the great advice guys, my main concern is what keyword should I be targeting because as you can see my domain is well I think somewhat irrelevant.

    Should I be building back links to my index page or my articles?

    You can always buy a more relevant domain name.

    lol@ all the people who scream adsense, it sounds more like a general bodybuilding/muscle building blog and hence would be better to focus on promoting clickbank products. And also build an email list if possible.

    Might send you a PM tomorrow or something
