    Hello all,

    I'm new here and I've been reading this forum for quite some time now, but sometimes it seems too much to take it all in. I was hoping you could give me some tips on how to grow my site and drive more traffic to it.

    I started this journey in April and I'm struggling to make a buck with my website. I'm promoting CB products from my niche but I also have Adsense and Amazon affiliate.
    On average I have around 1500-2000 visitors per day, but even so it seems I can't make more than $400-$500 per month. I write all my articles and I try to do SEO as well as I can (I'm still new at this). I've also noticed that the content I post is more and more appreciated by the readers, probably I'm getting better at writing. My traffic comes mostly from social media and from article sharing done by other sites from the same niche.

    If you could give me some pointers on how to drive more traffic (something that is safe for adsense) I would really appreciate it. I'm also willing to invest between $50-$100 per month to see it growing so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Thank you for your time.

    Make sure you are pushing products related to your niche. I have done a lot of native ad type marketing where I have learned a lot when it comes to writing articles and selling products on to the readers without pushing it too hard on them.
    Personally I don't like CB products that much because their checkout seems a little spammy too me. A lot of people think "oh great, another spammy CB product"
    If you have skype add me and I can give you some pointers: the.slug04

    Not sure if your site is essentially offering a review of a product from CB. Though a possible idea would be to do some live reviews that people can see. I would think mixing in a Youtube video with your content to make it more appealing to this new age of people who don't really read, but they will watch. May not apply here, but figured it was worth sharing. Are the ads that your showing on the site in relationship to the products your offering from CB. Pin pointing better ads will definitely increase your revenue from Adsense and potentially give more merit to what your articles or reviews are saying.
    It might be a good thing to offer some more personal information about what ever the product is, using you as a person or brand for your readers to believe in. Not a bad idea also to look at what others are doing on there site to compare. Remember people that believe in you, your opinions, and your information is what is most important. Once you have the credibility of your reader your conversion will increase dramatically.

    One thing you should be doing is to get someone to make pitch perfect reviews to give that professional look to your blog/site. And i dont see many people doing this but why dont you invest on facebook ads to drive even more traffic to your "space", you will create something called retention viewers

    Try social media especially facebook and twitter, they have huge traffic potential.

    First of all, your content and posts should be according to the taste of your niche marketing. To attract more qualified traffic you should have to present quality content. Secondly, you can use various advertising techniques social media advertisement could be a better option.

    I was thinking of doing this, but I'm short on funds. I would rather invest in SEO for the moment.

    Can you recommend some reliable SEO providers? I keep reading on the forum, but I have no clue who to hire.

    Most of the traffic comes from Facebook, I share my articles in targeted groups. As for Twitter, I never liked it and I have trouble working with it. I still need to learn how to get followers because so far I have 10. :) It's true that it's a new account, but still I can probably put more time into learning how Twitter works.

    From what I've gathered around here lately you should be building PBNS/Web 2.0's. I'd also recommend that somewhere on your website you have en email optin so that you can market your CB products/products you're an affiliate of to your visitors

    It looks as if you have not made much use of Youtube. You should since they also get huge traffic. Do product review videos, tutorial videos, and also videos where you interview experts in the area of your products. Upload these to Youtube and share the link on Twitter and other social sites . Tumbler is another high traffic site you can explore.

    Goodluck.
