    I have an adsense website momscookingpan (dot) com which is not earning much as I am not able to promote it. I have made the site from scratch and would need your feedback to know if I am going in right direction. Also I need advice if I can sell the site. If anyone is willing to help or partner me to make it more productive, I would be glad.

    I also have another amazon site homegoodsblog (dot) com which is an auto blog type site which i hardly use.

    All suggestions are welcome. I can't invest much for promotion and I am not very good at seo.

    I hope I didn't break any rule by posting the site.

    If i was you i would sign up for amazon affiliate program.


    (you will recieve a certain % of the money if someone buys an item from your affiliate link)

    Look for some kitchenware you can promote.When you make a post try to put the affiliated link subtly.


    Such as saying you use a specific frying pan blender and what not for your cooking methodsi hope this helps

    im hungry now >_>

    Clickbank! You get much better payouts than either adsense or amazon and you can find a product to suit any niche, including yours.

    I would suggest you to go for clickbank. It should work! Read guides around here on how to monetize through clickbank.

    Take all the recipes and make an ebook out of it to sell on Kindle. That's about all I can tell ya. That's a terrible niche to try and make money off with a website. There's like 40 million free recipes out there. You need to pick better niches. And you need to change the background on that homegood site. That PUKE GREEN is BEYOND UGLY!

    Honestly I don't think you're going anywhere with either of those sites. Not being rude, just realistic. You are better off doing something else to earn money while you learn more about SEO and IM. You learn by doing in this business. You're "doing" something so you get credit for that, but those sites aren't going to get you anywhere.

    If I were you I'd start at learning how to become an EXPERT at onsite SEO. THAT does not really cost you any significant money. Just time. I'd be reading anything and everything here about ONSITE stuff and most definitely read the tutorials by a user named phpbuilt. Also learn how to silo a site. Unless you do social media marketing (like posting on FB, twitter, etc.), you basically need organic rankings to get traffic IF you do not have money to advertise or buy links. To get THERE, you need to REALLY understand onsite SEO. Read and learn. Then you experiment, over and over and over.

    Start with keywords that literally get less than 100 traffic per month (or even less...25 or 50 is fine). When you can rank stuff like that with nothing but onsite and interlinking on your site, THEN you are ready to move forward and see what links will do for you.

    That is how it works. Don't get caught up in JUST learning though. You truly learn the MOST by DOING stuff. So far you're learning what doesn't work. But we all do that. Just a question of how much you can do and in what time frame. Everything is incremental. What you learn today will seem like common sense a month from now. One bit of knowledge or technique leads to another and another, etc..

    It may seem like a LONG road, but it's not if you dedicate yourself and put the time in. It's all up to you. One step at a time.

    Good luck.

    What about making a video recipes with link to your site? You tube is helpful for your traffic. Also socials like FB, Reddit and Instagram. And FB groups where you will share your videos, which will bring you traffic!

    You could gain extra visitors, referring other bloggers on your recipe. And as you do that, contact them telling that you mentioned them.
    Most will be happy to see this and you can ask them to share your post on their social networks.
    As for monetization there are already some good ideas mentioned.

    I'm having a hard time figuring out who your target market is... perhaps young children? I think you need to up the quality of your content - everyone knows what a pizza or chocolate cake is.

    You need better keywords for your posts. The niche itself is over saturated but where there's a will there's a way.

    How old is your site?

    I am afraid but I dont think anyone would like to partner with you over here.
    Sorry to drop the ship down but that kind of website can be made with Wprobot too.

    I would suggest you to do keyword research and post quality articles if you wish to get traffic from google
    but if you are bringing traffic from own sources then nothing matters.

    Cheers
