    Hello guys, watching this forum for some time now. :)

    I have a website that gets about 400-450 UV/day, about 90% from organic search, the rest from feeds and so on. I use GAdsense with low results (it's a low CPC, about $0.04, $0.05 per click, no more than $4/day). I was thinking to try affiliate marketing but have no idea what to promote...

    The website is about an alcoholic drink, with cocktails and different information, I update it once/week or even 2 weeks, the traffic is steady.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the replies guys. First, amazon, how should I do it, related to products as Crixus described?

    Second, I have no idea how to create a targeted adsense campaign around alcohol, could you please enlighten me? :)

    I was thinking about Amazon and I think you are right while the visitors are only targeted ones...

    Mate, the problem is not CTR, I get around 8-10% sometimes, I think it's quite ok. But the CPC is around 3-5 cent/click, which is annoying. I created posts with high paying kwds and indeed, on those posts ads related with the high paying key appear, but the CPC is still low...duhh :)

    Thanks for replying cryss. So you say to create a single page with a single article, but to choose the keyword one with a higher CPC and build the content around it?
    The problem is with the niche I chosen, drinks, alcohol and cocktails have very low CPC and I must choose keywords related with those above, it's almost impossible to find something that pays better. Any ideas? :)

    I tried amazon for a couple of days, just one click from about 2-3000 UVs and the adsense CTR lowered like hell. It's enough I have a low CPC. :)
