    Hello everyone, lately I've been reading BHW more and more and have been learining plenty of new things about the IM world. I have been playing around with a few autoblogs and trying to figure out how to make them just right. Thanks to the fourms I have gotten a nice start. Although, I wanted to make sure I am going the right way. I have been using the shez blogging method and I have a few questions. I have been monetizing using mostly adsence.

    So I have about 250 twitter followers for each blog and according to statpress I get about 80UVs a day. But on adsense it says I only get about 30 impressions. Is this because people block ads? Or is statpress counting spiders as visitors?

    I have also been trying to choose themes that get a good CTR I have been kind of going 2 separate ways

    1# casugolf ......................The nice looking way
    2# guitartodayblog............. The clean and lots of ads way
    both are .coms

    For each I have been almost getting no clicks and its kind of worrying me because im not sure If I need more visitors or if I need a change of theme/ad placement?

    Sorry that was a bit long but...Thanks alot guys for contrubuting to such a great forum. I've learned alot.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    I got an ad blocker on this browser. And I'm now watching your guitartodayblog (I'm a guitarist myself!) And no ad is getting through, so I'm guessing that might be a problem.
    Looks good though, might be useful for some affiliate guitar lessons thingy.

    Hmm, I guess I just need to work on traffic more then. Have you heard of any wordpress plugin that unblocks ads? I've searched and all I could find was one that would see if the person had a blocker and asks for them to turn it off.

    I think just asking nicely will help...But only if the person watching your blog actually likes it a LOT and comes back often.
    So ya, only your core audience will do it.
