    It's holding steady in the top 3 for a keyword that gets around 27,000 exact searches (according to google keyword tool).

    I've put AdSense and Amazon affiliate ads and it's not converting very well (maybe $30-$35/mo), wondering if anybody has suggestions?

    Try optimizing the placement of your ads? What's your bounce rate too.. If 80% of your visitors are bouncing that's going to hurt.

    You can try CPA offers ;) Find an offer that your visitors would be interested in.

    Is the term a buying term or an info term?

    I have a site w/ similar stats and, basically, the CTR is low because there is low buyer intent.

    You can try and do a side door sale and get ride of adsene entirely.

    Like, if your site was about cooking recipes, you can promote pots and pans from amazon.

    it's an information website, have one adsense ad below the content and a list of amazon books associated with the website on the right hand side. adsense out-performs amazon by far.

    have just applied for commision junction for one of my other websites, hopefully once approved i'll be able to run ads from it related to this website.

    just signed up to clickbank and replaced my amazon links (which were only getting me around 60c per sale) with a few clickbank links which will apparently net me around $8 per sale

    fingers crossed!
