    Hello,

    I have a legal blog that gets about 1200 page views a month. For the past 6 months I've have adsense on there earning about 25 USD a month. Low CTR at about 1.77% Its passive so can't complain. Its basically a MNS. Traffic is organic from search engines.

    I'm considering trying to find a relative CB product, though CB is new to me, so I have to learn it.

    Any recommendations to monetize a legal blog and also an intro to CB? I'll search around here and start reading some CB methods.

    Thanks in advance. I always learn a lot here.

    Why don't you ask some local lawyers if they want to advertise on your site and charge them for links/banners every month?

    My first reaction would be to improve the blog, i.e. the content of the blog and increase traffic.

    Have you/anyone else done a full-on keyword analysis?

    If you PM me the URL, I can take a look. I have an interest in legal sites, etc... as they are considered "prime" for Local SEO. It's possible that it's not your monetization, it's your traffic volume that needs to be tweaked.

    Perhaps, but its traffic is not local. I would if I would rank some local kws on it. Also, although I could call from skype, I live outside the states at the moment. Solid idea though, thanks.

    I may just do some local kw research and see if i could rank some pages for major cities/states. But then, I'd have to call around,sell, and organize payment. Not sure what even to charge and if it'd be worth my time.

    Sorry, not revealing my site. But thanks for the advice.

    I was hoping to find an affiliate to slap on there and if it had some returns, then build upon it.

    One twist I saw was an English site that die reasonably well in English got translated to a language of a smaller market, and even though the market was smaller the traffic was higher because the market was much less competitive.

    Btw, just because I said the word "local" doesn't mean that it applies to you. Lol, I mean how it applies to ME, roflmao. I'm interested in "legal sites" and would be willing to help you in exchange for the personal development I would get by just being around the niche.

    Was my point.
