    I started this blog a while back, I had it originally made with Joomla. My databases got all messed up from a plug-in so I created the site again with Wordpress. I used to make about a dollar a day from Adsense but now I am only making a few cents a day. Either way the money I was making was not worth the time I was putting into it. I would like some suggestions on how I can optimize this site or what I could add to it in order to make the most money off of it (if that is even possible with my niche). I have been reading these forums for a while now but just registered recently. I have accounts with:

    Adsense
    Click Bank
    Commission Junction
    EPN
    Amazon Associate

    ...if any of those could be incorporated into my site to monetize it. Any help or suggestions regarding my site would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

    I also have a news website that I tried the Google Trends method with for a few days but that didn't work so well either.

    I think you should drop the image ads. I could barely tell them apart from the actual website. Go with text ads, or at least change the banner to text.

    Your sidebar only loads for the "buy guitar hero" and "forum" pages. Is that supposed to happen or is it a bug? I'd add the sidebar to the main page as well.

    You could possibly incorporate amazon affiliates by linking to soundtracks for the game.

    Oh yeah, and some actual content for the blog couldn't hurt ;).

    dont drop the image ads if they are payperclick that's the way to do ppc, make it look like it's part of the site (google adsense).
    drop the 468x60's change it to 300x250 between the title and the actual content to post it on single.php
