    How would you suggest monetizing a blog in the "how to get ex back" niche?

    I'm ranked very well for a fair number of keywords and received 200+ visits (120+ UVs) a day. I've only recently achieved rankings so it's starting to increase by a lot.

    Most of the content on the niche though is information, such as "How to get ex boyfriend back - 3 Steps" and things like that.

    So far, I have only tried to do CB ads but they aren't converting very well.

    Here are some of the things I also plan on doing to see if I can help increase conversions:
    - Create a landing page. My featured image on my blog will re-direct to this landing page.
    - Create text-links at the end of each of my articles that will re-direct to my affiliate link.
    - Put on Adsense later on when I'm eligible for it.
    - Perhaps sell guest posts. I'm not sure yet. I have accepted no comments/posts so I'm assuming my OBL is 0?
    - Maybe add in a section for product reviews and try to sell a product that way instead?

    Does anyone have any other suggestions to do so? I'm fine with $5-10/day ideas, I don't want to scrape my site yet.

    An extra section where you upload / steal videos from Youtube and name them "How to prank your ex". Put a content lock on it.

    I already have a video section but it's not content locked.

    Although that sounds like a really questionable method...

    You can content lock whatever you want... you just have to either make sure the network knows you are content locking, or you are extremely careful to never let them find out.

    It don't want to content lock anything because I find it annoying myself whenever I have to submit info on another site just to access some more information. I would take it into consideration of course, but it's definitely not one of my top methods so far.

    There are some CB ads of "Love spells" books about getting the loved one back, etc. You could try with that ones.

    I already mentioned that I am trying to promote CB products that aren't converting well at the moment.

    Doesn't mean that I have to do blackhat methods. I don't really mind certain things, but I don't exactly what to risk my site at this point.

    This is sort of what concerns me about using the content locking method lol.
