    Alright so I'm completely new too this.. I've been at it now for about a month... Tried different methods, tutorials, niches.. you name it.. I've tried almost every "noob" tutorial out there.. Yet I struggle to make $1.

    My most latest niche seems to be generating me the most traffic but now I simply need ways to improve it to get conversions. So let me share what I've done so far...

    I've setup a new tumblr blog based on the adult niche. I've set the theme up all nice so it looks legit, reblogged a few images and made it look all nice. I've signed up for "Mylikes" and have monetized the blog with 2 'advert widgets', one down the side on the left under the navigation and one fixed, along the bottom of the page. I signed up for Mylikes over Adsense (I also have an Adsense account fyi) because they let you target adverts relevant to your blog, unlike Adsense which usually go off keywords... (The last thing I wanted was car insurance adverts on an adult blog, the conversion rate would be amazing haha).

    Anyway my next step was to create a folder on my PC and fill it with 50 (to start with) adult .Gif images (which I just found on tumblr and saved them from other abult blogs). I downloaded a tumblr bot to automatically upload and queue the folder of images. There was also a function on the tumblr bot too add a description, click through link etc... I signed up for an ****** account and locked my tumblr URL and used that link in both the description and click through link so when people click it they will have to go through my ****** link first.. Also when people reblog my images they will be spreading my ****** url.

    So yeah, I've let this bot queue my folder of images on tumblr and I've pretty much just instantly published the first 10 of the 50 images and let the other 40 publish over a period of 2-3 hours. (I also forgot to mention on the tumblr bot I added appropriate tags such as #sex #porn #vagina etc... I've tracked common tags and you'll be surprised how much people search those simple keywords on tumblr).

    I installed a basic tracking script on my blog so I could see in real-time how many hits I was getting and I've managed to rack in about 30 people every 20 minutes.... so in 1 hour I'm averaging around 90 real-time traffic hits. The only problem is Mylinks and ****** pay pennies.. I think I've made 26c from 116 views on ****** and 9c on Mylinks from the monetized widgets on the blog.

    Has anyone got any ideas which I can use to improve this? I'm getting the traffic but struggling to pull in the $$$.. I don't expect to be rich over night but a little reward for a dedicated months research and trial and error would be nice (for motivation).

    Btw, I pretty much only just started this blog and I've already got 64 followers and 370 notes (reblogs/likes on the uploaded images).. The adult niche defiantly seems to be the best.

    I'm in the same situation as you, except trying my inexperienced hand at affiliate marketing. You seem to be off to a pretty damn good start in my opinion though, and I'd expect that over the course of a month your traffic should increase drastically based on what you've gotten already.

    So keep doing what you're doing, and check back here for some more experienced recommendations from the barons of advertisement that are on this forum. Good luck man.

    And herein is your mistake. Jumping from method to another without learning to earn even with the first one. Go to the making money section, sort the threads based on their views/replies and you'll find a bunch of well-received methods. Pick one. Concentrate on that one for a month. If you don't make money, then you're REALLY doing something wrong.

    Document the journey here in the journeys section so you'll get feedback as you go. You'll make money, guaranteed. Really.
