    I have a website, that I worked very hard to get on the first page of google and Yahoo, for a good term. It's a parody site about a specific rumor about a specific celebrity. The site is small (7 pages) but gets 1,500 unique visitors per day every day for about the last 2 weeks. I have google adsense up there. I tried putting up ads about other celebs for a few days, then ads for "funny sites", and now it's showing a lot of image ad's about celebs and mmorpgs. The newest ads are making me about .50 cents or so a day.
    1,500 UNIQUES should get me more than 7 clicks.

    I was thinking perhaps I should try some other forms of ads. Maybe even popups or something.

    Any ideas? I worked really hard to get these uniques and first page placement.

    If you want to continue to use adsense put 2 336x280 side by side as high on your page as you can and leave it for a day and see if you can get a better CTR that way. Get rid of the the image ads as they tend to pay a lot less than pure text. If you want to ditch adsense then try some celebrity sponsors instead but don't expect too much as these keywords aren't that high paying.

    1,500 UV is really not that much traffic. So i'm not terribly surprised at your CTR.

    One in every 250 uniques is clicking an ad, that seems low to me.
    Should I ditch the image ads? I got nearly no clicks with text ads, but i only ran them for 4 days

    Try CPM ads, you'll get $1/thousand views, so about 3x what you're getting now.

    Only $45/month, but if you had 10 sites with them on ...
