    Hi all,

    I'm frustrated and tired of trying to tweak my autoblogs. I'll start with my first one. http://www.babygearcentral.info


    I've had this blog up since Jan 09. Stats are Jan 111 Unique Visitors, Feb 184,Mar 127, Apr 168,May 382, Jun 145 so far.

    Adsense earnings .29 cents.
    Clickbank 0.00

    Hosting paid= 9.95 x 6= $59.70
    Domain name paid= .99 + 6.99 = $7.98

    I am out= $67.68 from this one blog :yield:


    So in your opinion- how would you monetize it better? What would you do to fix it? Or would you just try to sell it.

    I have social bookmarked it. Created a hubpage. Created a squidoo lens.
    I don't even want to start article marketing for it- only to get a few clicks on adsense.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Deanna

    First thing change the ads above the post to large rectangle. You may also want to pull in some more feeds. Another good idea is to find the Article Poster on this forum. You have to pay for the premium version, but there is a light version that's free. Start mixing up your content some and you should do better.

    Ur alexa ranking is too low... 1.4m++
    Strongly recommend you to try spamming all over those social bookmarking site..
    Reddit and stumbleapon works greats.
    1 month ago i suffer this kind of problem as well. Only few bucks from adsense for 1 whole month.

    But now after i reconstruct the whole site from top to btm. SEO, keyword research, ads layout, niche selection (must be hungry!!!), and etc. Now i am able to make at least 50 bucks from 5 autoblog. Although my theme is sucks and ugly, but the CTR is good. Fell free to review this. http://nba.leafyard.com

    You need to put your ads up and center.. your not really utilizing the flex theme to it's potential. I just started to use the theme myself, here is one if my newer blogs, http://www.losersweightloss.com/

    It's more of a testing ground for different stuff, so it's getting there.

    Okay I have a quick newbie question. How did you get the artwork for your ads-up on the top and bottom?

    I just changed to the flex theme a week ago so Its a work in progress for me too. I will view the tutorials on how to fix the ads. My stupid question is- where do you get the artwork for your ads- I checked the CB site & fatloss for idiots site and don't see where you get the artwork.

    If you could point me in the right direction-I'd appreciate it.

    And thanks for your advice.

    I just did a google image search for the two products and found tons of images to use.

    I think your social bookmarking may not have worked because all the content on that blog is duplicate, right? Duplicate content gives the site no "google juice" when you post your links. Also, there are maybe at least 125 social bookmarking sites. Have you gotten all of those yet? Here is a site to see all the social bookmarking sites... meh the url appears to be blocked or something. Just look up social bookmarking list in google and you will find something, my friend.

    Hope this helps

    Supplement your adsense earnings with Infolinks' in text ads! It's a good way to improve cpc earnings on your blog!
