    your CTR is pretty low, put your ads between the blog post.
    and put ads related to your verticals only.

    Adsense is very tight. Be careful in taking your actions.

    You can add a small link flow to other sites, and monetize the site

    I would run some experiments, with that big number of impressions it should be easy to see differences fast. If you have not tried experiments it is very powerful! It is builtin in the console, I think under "my ads".

    * try text-only ads - I do much better with them in some positions!
    * try different fonts - I do best with BIG fonts
    * try different background colurs - like light yellow to make the ad stand out
    * try different text colors - use something the other sites are not using

    And so on, let the experiments run for a few days and see.

    with 10% of that traffic I will be doing 4k/month jajajajaja

    now been serious google will not ban you account if you put your ads between your post, unless of course if you modify the ads in any way, you should follow
    TB Ann advice, the ad you have in the bottom may be not generating a lot of impressions what lower the possibility of you getting more income.

    my current setup is 1 after post title, 1 after 3rd paragraph, last one after 5th paragraph, first 2 are automatic size, last one vertical banner, in my case I got better conversion with text only ads, you should try some variants and see how it goes.

    also keep in mind that the niche you selected don't have that good payout, in my case 100-200 visits from USA easily provide me with $20 with as little to 30 clicks

    If you're getting most visits from smartphones try using only 300x250. At beginning, middle and end of article. Forget sidebar

    also keep in mind that if most of your current visitor are desktop based they could have ad-blockers enabled.

    also I only saw 2 ads in your posts after disabling my ad-blocker, the only consistent ad that is visible in your frontpage and category page is the one in the sidebar. place your 3rd ad in the posts, if you are are doing it then double check why it is not displaying, also place the other 2 ads for the frontpage and category pages.
