    I own a wordpress blog and my own domain for about 2 months. actually i bought wordpress pro bundle upgrade. I'm using wordpress WordAds but you can't make money with this program, at least I can't. In first month they payed me 1,52$ for 4500 impressions, altought I know there was more than 4500. This month I had 14 000 impressions and my earnings were 1,05$ ??? wtf!?
    It's a soccer related blog. It's in top 10 results on google for 3 keywords on slavic languages (bosnia, serbia, croatia, montenegro, slovenia...). These keywords are pretty popular among these nations. In period 1992-95, the war was here so people from these countryes moved to western europe, usa, australia... so I get visits from there also.

    This is from last month statistics. Can I earn anything with this?
    I'm pretty sure I can get even more visits but I need some tips how to earn, because wordpress doesn't allow ads (except their shitty wordads).
    Now I regret because I bought their ProBundle upgrade (99$ per/year), I could probably invest that somewhere else, but I didn't knew about this forum... :)
    Any suggestions? I know this is not a lot of visits but I'm sure I can get more, just need idea how to monetize it. Don't suggest me any casino affiliate programs. I tried (bet-at-home, 365).
    (sorry for my english, as you can see, it's not my primary language)
    Thank you.

    Agreed, extremely dumb thing to do - you'd get hosting and domain for years for that money... Would also open a whole another world without loads of restrictions on basically everything.

    As for the monetization, you could try to see if there's some related (so no casino stuff, doh) affiliate product that you could try to market to your visitors.

    Yeah, bad move on the proBundle... but this certainly seems to have some potential monetization opportunities.

    jbg...na greskama se uci. At the time I bought pro bundle, I haven't planned to earnwith my blog. I even heard for WordAds - after I bought probundle.Actually,I don't know why I bought it! :) I know it's a mistake, but I did it, so any suggestion how to make use of this blog, or should I just stop working on it?
    I get 95 % traffic from google, and the rest is FB. And I really don't have idea how could I make at least 99$ :) with this blog.
    I used ****** and made 10$. (I know wordpress doesn't allow ****** but I used tinyurl to shorten links so it wasn't a probilem.) + 2,5$ WordAds. It's too small amount for 2 months and almost 40 000 visits. Any suggestions??? Please HELP!!! :) :) :) P.S. SkyrocketSEO odakle si? :)

    Let me put it this way: would you really like to pay $99/y to get less features than you'd get for free?
