    Well all my efforts paid off and I was able to get my keyword term ranked to position one in Big "G". My traffic has increased significantly and I should start seeing some sales roll in, right? Well not exactly. Google was nice enough to ban my Adsense account I have had opened forever with no reason. I also NEVER click on my own ads before anyone asks.

    My reason for this post is to get an honest site critique on what I can do to monetize the site better. I have a few affiliate programs present at all times. With no Adsense it kinda sucks, so is there a good alternative to it?

    The site is: http://watersoftenerprices.com and it is an exact match domain with all the trimmings. I just can't for the life of me figure out how to get some money flowing on it. All sales data shows that people are in fact buying the products, just not from me.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Regarding the main keyword:

    Low searches, but decent CPC. The CPC is $3+ so unless you're making money with Amazon, I'd add some Adsense on there too, just to suck every dime out of your traffic.
    Hook up Analytics so you know what to expect for earnings.

    Are there any contextual Adsense alternatives since they banned my account? I'm still going through the Appeal process with them, but I don't forsee anything useful.
