    Hi All,

    I have been lingering on BHW for quite some time now and although I have learnt a lot for what regards SEO and driving traffic, I am still having trouble monetizing.

    In my latest adventure I have created an aviation website. Within 2 months I am building quite a reputation and as it stands I am having around about 15,000 targeted visitors per month. Mostly through social sharing.

    I am currently monetizing through google adsense and now I have just put up a related ebook for sale also. Adsense conversions are very very low for news so I was wondering if anyone can me give some more ideas.

    As usual your feedback will be much appreciated :) Thanks

    In my town, I had News Portal and Advertised Bars, Restoraunts, Shops..Etc.

    I made lot of money. I live in Bosnia so Adsense was not solution, you can try Adsense.

    amazon would be my first choice, also see if you can setup an advertising program on your site for others to buy space, look into buyandsellads.com hope that helps!

    I had a news site a few months ago and was in the exact same position as you are now, with adsense running on the site and with around the same amount of traffic your getting. In the end I just let the site go and concentrated on my other projects that make decent money. Amazon affiliate program in the UK have a new option for promoting their "Netflix" equivalent "Amazon instant prime". You get £2 for every sign up to their 30 day free trial. I don't remember this being around so I never tried in on my site, also I'm not sure if it's running in other countries or just in the UK.

    Anyway just a thought, hope it helps. :)
