    Give a link to your site so we can analyze it and tell you how to monetize.

    Most people have no idea how to use adsense and set it up properly to make you money.

    As the 2 prev posters said; niche? layout? details? Targeted aff offers to a specific niche works....

    There's also value in the membership base, ie $1-10-20/member as retailers and wholesalers have a cost per customer acquisition, which can vary depending on;
    niche (and language)
    domain name
    PR and indexing
    to name a couple.

    Hope that helps,
    ~e.

    Promote the site other places to get more people from developed countries and put a limit on the amount of submits they can do per day without interacting in another way with other users on the site.

    Also CPM programs might be an idea, it doesn't give you that much, but still it's better than nothing. As it kind of sounds like your site is just a general site.
