    I have a niche site in the tech industry. It's had steady small traffic but has been growing steadily the last few months. I have adsense on it and a few products with amazon affiliate links but I barely make $1 on it since most of the users use adblocking extensions and are more ad savvy.

    I need someway to monetize it. I'm trying Envato affiliate products right now since it's more tech/programming related products but it isn't going that well. To soon to tell though.

    I'm also trying some clickbank products but I don't have high hopes since the products on there only sorta semi fit the niche.

    Any ideas would be great. I only pull in $1 a day from the site so far. Which is pathetic for the traffic it gets.

    Maybe you could sell sponsored blog posts?

    *HINT*

    Use banner ads on your domains. For example:

    www.mysite.com/images/random_string.jpg

    This way, if they use adblock the whole site won't load images and they will disable it. ;)

    Then use a random function with like 20 different banners so they will have to block each name individually.... At this point they should be so annoyed that they give up!

    WIN!

    * PRO TIP *

    Write a PHP script to rename the image file name so every time it loads it's a new random string. Also, MAKE SURE it's in your main images folder.
