    So far the only method I have used is adsense and it's not bringing me in very much.

    What are some other methods to monetizing a blog or autoblog??

    Adsense, Amazon, Ebay, Clickbank, Commision Juction, are the usual suspects.

    But what matters is the subject of the blog and how can it be monetized.

    I agree, offer a free report or ebook of value and start getting those visitors on your list so you can market to them after they leave your site.

    Best so far

    1 - Adsense
    2 - CPA
    3 - Opt-In

    Some of my most successful auto blogs are actually selling clickbank products.

    I make a static main page and use that is a landing/sales page for a CB product. Then I run the auto blog to make posts which would interest a potential buyer - something like iPhone news for an iPhone torrent/download product, I then make ads that show on all of the posts the sell this main static page.

    This way the auto blog posts coming in will naturally rank for a wide variety of keywords depending on what the post is about so you can get all kinds of peoples to your sales page. It also allows you to promote your main blog domain and it provides fresh content which helps in rankings for that.

    At $30-$40 a sale just a couple of sales a year is a big profit for a site that takes no work after setup and costs $5 a year for a domain (I have some that are 2-3 years old still bringing in a sale every few months and have not touched them since the initial setup).

    This is just one option that many people don't consider, I also have the traditional MFA adsense sites and some that are primarily for link farms.

    Yup good stuff. I've done this with one of my sites and it works pretty good. You can still put adsense on your blog too to maybe get a click or two.

    You can also search for sites that are looking for affiliates, and there are plenty of them if you will just search. Porn sites pay real big bucks, but I don't really like blogging about xrated stuffs, so I better pass on the porn thing.

    Don't waste your time, unless you can't use adsense. Most of my click with infolinks are giving me .00 cents or like .001 cents.

    I agree with getting the opt-in but why not make a sales pitch when they are already at your site and interested to begin with? Frankly, if you can make a sales pitch, have some advertising going as well and grab an email while you are at it.
