    I am driving steady traffic, I am not too sure what users from PC are willing to complete offer wise.

    I realize that there is probably a higher likely hood that computer users will use their credit cards and buy something online, but I tried it and it didn't see any conversions. I am not sure what offers PC users jump at. Perhaps someone can help me with this who is making money driving web traffic.

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on what niche you are in! But like johndoejohndoe said, adsense is always a good starting point if you are not sure how to make money. If I were you I would start a newsletter and offer for your visitors to opt into that and then just send them on a regular basis things that you post on your website and other info then promote affiliate offers.

    What niche are you in? If you tell me I may be able to offer more help.

    Direct sales would be the largest profit center, but takes more work and the site needs to be high quality.

    Adsense can be decent, but ultimately, if you can somehow find a way to convert your traffic to sales rather than just using Adsense, you're going to see much more revenue. As people have stated above, it depends on the niche.

    I would raise my hand in Amazons favor. Works great with banner ads, but I'm not sure whether you have put any effort into building a list or not. If not, I suggest you start doing so, because there's a lot of money to be made in promoting Clickbank products to your list.

    Everything and anything! Mixing monetization methods is a recipe for success IMO.

    The best way is to combine several ways of monetization and then see, which of them brings you more income and concentrate on it.
