    News site are harder monetize than niche specific for the simple reason that when targeting certain keywords you are drawing people that are looking for a certain thing. News readers does not usually mean buyers or offer submitters.

    If its a general news site, i would create a category called product reviews or lifestyles, or some other specific rot...post your products/clickbank stuff there.

    Is it a tech news or what?

    The again, what is news? Just headlines or news about a spescific theme? When it is within a spesific theme it should not be such a big challenge.
