    Hello. First of all this is my first post and saying hi to all! I' been a reading lots of threads here to get motivated. Here's my situation.
    I' ve 2 blogs on blogger platform with custom domains.
    1. is a gaming blog with 1 year old domain with some content i written. It gets approx 200 visits a day. I'm using adsense on this site and making only $2 month.its not garbage content site with downloads.
    2. Is a health blog with 2 month old domain with 7articles. And not monitized.
    3. I've a google community based on a game with over 14k members. It created in 2013 and 95% are legit followers i believe. I haven't linked my gaming blog to this community so far.
    4. I' have $200 to spend

    What should i do next?

    Probably spend some of the money to hire somebody to write a couple of high-quality articles for you for SEO purposes. I think it's always a smart investment if you don't have the ability to do it yourself and are only starting to build regular visits on your website.

    As to the rest of the money, probably something that will help you with bigger presence on social media - Twitter, Instagram, Facebook

    I usually write 1000 word plus articles on my gaming blog.
    People are commenting and asking for help as well. So i think they understand and consume my content.
    You can find the content written by me at videogamerplus. Com. Thats my blog
    I appreciate some feedback as well.
    I even started a gig on fiver selling 3 adslot for $5 for 1 month recently and no sales so far.
    I no longer wanted to be a lonelywolf and decided to seek out advice aswell

    My first tip: remove the address to your site ASAP

    For your gaming blog, I suggest getting signed up on the amazon affiliate program and going through and placing affiliate links on the item names+pictures that you have. You should easily make far more from that than you made with adsense.
    You'll only get 4% commission on electronics, but for online game downloads I believe the rate is 10%, so going forward you may want to focus more on those than hardware reviews.

    Your best bet would be to simplify the first and last step by fully integrating your gaming blog to that group.

    After that try retargeting AdSense or moving the ad-placement around so better rates can be obtained.

    Overall it looks like you know what to do, except need the desire to scale.. Once more numbers show it'll always remain a fun game to play. The entry has been cleared so don't quit a project which proves results or you'd better off quit.

    I would say pick one site and focus on growing traffic specifically for that site. I'd install a fb like jacker and start accumulating likes on your blogs FB page (try to get authority)
    If you master that process and apply it to your other sites you'll start getting consistently more traffic.

    Actually my original plan was to monetize
    I want to scale but.. its the next obstacle next to me. It hard to compete against giants in that niche. Competition is fierce.

    I don't want to destroy user experience of my visitors. That's my top priority.

    Just a side question

    Would you hire me as writer for your website or blog based on my writing skills? you can see my writing on my blog on post #3. I'm a non native speaker holds masters in physics hehe.
    How much you'll pay for content like that?
    This is not a clickbait or something. Its for me to make my decision on should i hire someone to write content? and to get a bigger picture on the dimensions that i can scale.

    When i checked your website i found you need alot of work:

    1- ad-placement my suggestion is below title
    2- mobile friendly buy template responsive so the ad is shown when people visit yours in mobile

    3- i will go with affiliate games ( amazon example)

    4- spend your money to increase twitter and facebook page

    Good luck you need it

    1. I tried that. Left. Right. Under title. The only place i didn't place ads are inside post. I myself hate to see ads inside post. My best income is $2 month. I now placed some amazon affiliate links on right sidebar. Don't know it'll work. I'll check progress after a month.
    2. I enabled the default blogget mobile template. Its good.
    3. I'm now trying it.
    4. Started a new facebook page.I'll gain some followers.

    As far as your side question goes. If your english in the blog posts is similar to how you post here I would suggest hiring someone for some articles. I am not trying to be cruel or anything, but there is poor grammar and sentence structure throughout your posts. Usually when I see articles like that I feel it is just spam seo articles right off and close the site.

    I havent gone to your site. Just basing that off forum posts. Again not trying to be mean, you asked.
