    I have a insurance site but doesn not get any traffic. I have it monetized with google adsense and a insurance quote form. What is the best way to get some income for my site?

    What are you doing to promote it? You'll need to start a link building campaign. Forum profile links and article marketing are good starts. Also, having both adsense and an insurance quote form may be hurting your earnings potential. You should have one objective of each page, and test to see which one works better.

    Why dont you try a targetted traffic for your website.. I dont know the conversion rate of paid traffic sources.. Worth a try!! They are cheap..a few $$ per 1000 unique visits..

    First thing you need to decide, whether you want your insurance to monetize by adsense or quotes form, then accordingly create desing - clean and business like for quote forms and for adsense - install theme with highest CTR rate. Both adsense and form wont work as good as it could do separately.

    Well, an insurance niche is EXTREMELY large. You have to compete with some extremely large companies and pro black hatters.

    Basically, until you are making money with some other sites and learn all the secrets of the web, you won't make any money. A top spot in insurance can sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    If I were you, I would write about 3 articles a day, depending on the time you have available, and leave it at that. At the same time as that you should work on a few other websites, writing articles, link building, ext...

    After a few months you go BACK to your insurance site and manual link build. (Takes a lot more time, but backlinks in a related niche and manually done will give you better results)

    Pick a much less populated niche and you will make a lot more money.

    Just another little tip: every few days you should add a few more tags to all your websites, will help you rank.

    Home Page:
    For wordpress blogs on insurance, use typo tags for each post. This would help you to get free targeted traffic from the search engines.

    In the caseof off-page seo, go through the backlink stuff - blog commenting, web 2.0, article submission, etc.

    Post those articles on your site, or create a couple more sites and simply update them with fresh content on a regular basis.

    You can later decide how you want to interlink them (if you want 90% of your sites to link to your most important sites, or if you want to do a more wheel like approach or if you want to use some of them as a basis to do ABC trades).

    It's a very competitive niche, there's a lot of blackhat activity there, so if you don't have the network to compete in place, it'd focus on the slow growth approach....
