    Hello all,

    Now I may be opening myself up to a whole host of abuse and negative cursing here, but if you have a few minutes to spare then I'd appreciate some feedback.

    Bottom line is, I've got myself a tidy Wordpress blog within the Health niche that is consistently delivering around 2750 unique visitors & 3850 page views over the last 12 months, with a 40 second browsing duration on the site as the average.

    I currently only utilise Adsense as a way of making money, turning over £15.00 PCM. The CTR is approx 0.5% which I know is fairly low.

    My content is all unique with none of it being bought / spun / outsourced. As it's a field that I'm personally interested in, the content is created entirely by me and another two writers.

    What do you think? Is there any obvious way that I can increase my earnings? I've seen all sorts of in text links / ads at the side etc but I don't want to SPAM my readers.

    And before anyone says "do a search etc" - I've done that.

    I'm intrigued to see your feedback...

    Probably increase your CTR? How much is your CPC?

    Thanks for the feedback - My CPC is currently floating around 0.50p - 0.70p

    Does that help?

    If you're not already, you should get whydowork adsense (plug-in) and add large rectangles (good CTR ad).
    Also, maybe more traffic, some more SEO?

    Are these figured capable of being manipulated to yield more returns?
