    Okay, so basically, I'm ranked within the top 7 so far for a highly competitive keyword in my niche. Using Google Incognito, I'm currently #5. My traffic is semi-decent (I only recently got first page rankings) of about 120 UVs/day.

    However, I am not monetized properly for this (I only have CB affiliate ads currently) but I was recently suggested to add in text-links at the end of each of my articles.

    I'm not really sure how they should look like though, can anyone give an example preferably? Do I just hyper-link a part of my article or should I just put in the link at the bottom of the article and cloak it? Also, when they click on the link, should I cloak the link in the URL as well? For example, instead of having show up as product.com/hop=affiliate123 it will show up in the URL as just product.com. Does it make a difference if they see the =hop at the end?

    I realized I should've probably done SEO on a landing page instead of a blog lol. I kind of feel stupid now but I guess you live and learn :p

    If anyone else has any suggestions (other than Adsense) to monetize this, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm fine with small amounts of even $5-10 a day.

    If i am getting you properly,then i'd give you some tips i have learned,practiced and succeeded.Well ,first of all CB affiliate is a good option.And with that fair amount of traffic you gets day,You can do some magic with your site.I assume,even its refferal traffic,you are getting the niche visitors.Unless there is no use of it.Major thing in when, trying to promote Clickbank products, affiliates forget the fact that not all products will be the same and give the same results. If you're not aware of the products that can make you profit the most, you'll be wasting your marketing work.So i suggest you to find best products that gives much returns.In my experience ,Clickbank is one of the top online sources to use for forming a healthy and steady income.

    I have only Experience in Clickbank other than adsense,So i can give tips on that only.Mate.

    I already have researched and chose a CB product. My traffic is directly from Google search engine mostly.

    However, my website is purely a blog, not a landing page. Apparently, I can't just randomly change up the entire first page of my site without harming my rankings, so that means I can't throw up a sales copy. I have no way of compelling people to click onto my ad and so thus, my hops are pretty low (fraction of a percentage).

    Here are some examples of text links you can use:
    - I found the lowest price for this product here.
    - Click here for the full review
    - Click here for more features
    - click here for something you really need to know about this product
    - Make all pictures a link since people like to click on pics

    Wouldn't this be strictly if you were a review site though? How would you do it if you were just simply offering information?
