    Hello,

    I am fairly new to blogging in the gaming niche. I started my blog about two months ago. I am averaging 2500 unique visitors per day 30% from South Korea 25% from USA 25% from Canada and the rest from around the world.. I am using Adsense but so far since the blog has started I have made a whopping $2.31. I am wondering if this is normal and if not what else I should be doing to monetize this better.

    Thank you!

    First of all, check other similar gaming blogs and see where they are placing the ads and test it on yours.

    I would also go into google and check on gaming and gambling sites, this might be more relevant to what your blog is about.

    I have been looking around and am switching to Wordpress with theme Newspaper.. From what I can find on Google that is the best theme for Adsense.

    Do you mean in the "Hide Block Ads" tab? If so as it is set up right now everything is enabled.

    You should build a list bro.
    Then promote things to your list,new games,consoles,exclusive deals etc.

    My blog is dedicated to one specific online game so this would be hard to do, keeping relevant I would think?

    Bumping for another question.. I am just wondering if the $2.35 is normal for 15,000 unique visits or if it means that I clearly have something set up wrong.

    That is pretty light earnings for that number of visits. Are you seeing high impression numbers in adsense? Clearly you aren't seeing very many actual clicks. Sounds like there is definitely an issue of some sort. I don't know how it's even possible to have that low of earnings from that much traffic. I'm guessing people are not seeing your ads for some reason.
