    So the title says it all. I'm working on a news site that gets about 5k uniques per day. They are super legit with high PR. Adsense is making like 2$ per day, probably bad ad placement. But still with that many users something should be making something.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Please provide the niche, but I would look into clickbank and other affiliates.

    Definately wrong placement. U should reiceve 4-5% clickratio from Adsense if you have placed your banners, text links, etc correctly.

    Try to contact an adsense expert..

    And pay him for his help (if you see some better results)

    But 2$/day out from 5k unique, what is your EPC?

    5k uniques per day but $2? Try to test the ad placement, I think you will get different results.

    2 bucks? you should at least make 50$ from that....
    with the right placement...

    once the clickrate goes up... the $$ they pay per click go up as well...
    (to a certain extent of course)

    you can pm the site an i look into it if you want.
    i have a lot of sites with those kinds of traffic..

    Maybe try to put some CPM ads on there. Assuming rates for news are over $3 / 1000 views, you will at least be making $15 / day with it until you can come up with some better monetization methods.

    Yeah, CPA might be one method. If you have some good news content you can content-lock with CPA ads.
