So I'm about making money. I've made some amazing money over the years but decided to give MNS sites a shot. So I got an EMD with another 75 or so keywords that were related to the niche. The EMD has about 18,000 local and 27,000 global searches/month. The site went live on Sept 1, since then, with the expense of numerous backlinking resources, the following has happened and it all happened in about 6 weeks #1 on g00g for my EMD #2 for 2 other keywords directly related #3-7 for about 5 others. My awstats results are skewed so I won't post them. The reason is that many of the images I had on the site got quickly indexed in g00g images file so a lot of my page views were for people searching for an image but here are my adsense results since Sept 1. Pathetic in all aspetcts in my opinion. 0.18% CTR? And thats having used the CTR theme most of the time. And the CPC is NOWHERE near what go0g keyword tool estimated. Since then, I've changed themes, changed adsense layout etc. So do I keep throwing money at this site? I have all the tools needed but also pay for some backlinking services as well. My goal was the same as many, i.e build a handful of MNS to generate some income but if I'm spending all this time for less than $10 in 3 months....?
