    Hi all,

    My tech blog is finally getting 20,000 uniques per month, but there is no way that i can monetize it to generate real income. I tried adsense but income is less than nothing.

    If adsense is the only solution, how much more traffic do i need?

    There ARE alternatives. Searching the forum will reveal them. Before you do, you should try to work out WHY Adsense isn't working for you.

    Maybe you should work on your ad placement first. Or you can give a free ebook and build a list.

    You need to analyze your adsense account activity, Impression, CTR and Page RPM. Only relying on visitor stat is not a good idea, btw what are your traffic sources and how you are monitoring traffic stats?

    i would say almost evenly distributed - usa gets a little more visitors

    you guys are really helpful and good at troubleshooting - didnt know there were so much factors involved

    if this means that 50% of your visitors are from India this means that you don't have 20K/month, you have 10K/month which is only 330 people per day which is nothing. Here you go

    Try activating both image and text ads. It may increase the CPC.

    I would try marketing it on Mars!

    As far as I am aware Mars has not been raped yet...

    My business partner who is an Indian living in Mumbai - tells me on a clear night sky he can see Mars...

    that traffic is not much worth for a tech blog.

    but if your blog is niche specific tech blog then that traffic is good.

    pm me your blog.
