    Hey,

    Really bothered with this, i have a site on the first page of google for a popular keyword (44k exact). Getting around 100 hits a day. But i cant get a click on my adense. Is there any way to get some cash from this site? Its a movie quotes site and adsense doesnt have anything really rated. I know most products sites do well but this is not really a product.

    Can anyone give some advice on someting that would really bring in some income?

    Thanks. Keyword is "The notebook quotes" so you can see what kind of niche it is. What to do? Thanks:confused:

    You will have to see in adwords keyword tool to see if there is any competition for your keyword phrase. In many cases Google shows public ads on your site if the site is not relevant or if there are no enough advertisers. Secondly see how your ads are placed - are they in the hot spots to be seen by the viewers? You may also try CPA offers that can convert easily to general crowd.

    if your traffic is targeted then you should earn atleast $3 from adsense... if you are not earning then your adsense ads placement is the problem...

    have u tried clickbank ?

    It's a tough one. Normally I would suggest heading over to clickbank or getting your own product to sell on the page, but that really isn't the most commercial of search terms. You probably are best with CPA.

    if it's thenotebookquotes.net, you definitely dont have the site setup to have people click on your adsense. take out the big ol box and use text links for the google ads. add 3 total on that site.

    actually looked at the other ones, i believe this is your site. correct me if i'm wrong.

    Yeah i it is tough because my bounce rate is like 85-92% and i cant really understand why. I have pictures/quotes that are all targeted to the movie. To be honest i have no ideal why so many people are looking for the movie quotes. I bought this site off flippa because it was cheap and i did a little SEO work to the first page and it really gets some outstanding traffic at times.

    I just really want to give the visitor what they are looking for and make a pretty penny in the end. My adsense is placed in the "hot spots" but i think one problem is adsense "see's" quotes and then puts lawyer/auto quotes and things like this up and the visitor ignores. Or like previously mentioned they put more up a public service (generic) ad. Some times its the fake "youtube" type movie ad. But they really are looking for something i dont understand just yet.

    I think i will head over to Clickbank and look for quotes of some type. But really dont know what to do with this. If i dont find anything i feel like i am really wasting a good site.

    your spot on but the problem with the text ads is they have absolutely nothing in common with the site. I have tried them and i got my first click when i put up the image ad last week. The text ads just show auto/lawyer/etc quotes. I tried to block a bunch of them in my adsense backoffice but they keep coming. Google just cant recognize what it is? But hey i asked for advice so i will change it and see, as what i am doing is not working for sure. I will try with the 3 and see.

    1) traffic isn't enough for the niche

    or

    2) niche isn't very responsive or capable

    3) ??

    My average is about 130 uniques/day since i got above the fold...
    i am starting to think #2 but i will change and see, my bounce rate it just to figgin high. Like i say what more do they want, there are quotes all over the page. If i make it pretty i will never see good clicks :(

    I have an ideal to put up a fan type page for people (opt in style) that want more info about the movie sent to there email. I just dont have a clue about the niche so i am just sitting on it.

    change the top square to horizontal banner and add 2 more horizontal banners between the quotes... there's so much more you can do with that site.

    Your keyword should be that of a product. Who clicks on adsense for movie quotes? Nobody. They look for their movie quote and exit your site.

    the reason is because google is placing unrelated ads on your page. maybe remove most of the words "quote" and add more movie related terms.
