    Pulled in 1,100 unique visitors to my website for the month of December so far. Ranking on the second page for a variety of rather competitive keywords for my niche.

    Zero hops out of the 1,100 unique visitors.

    Perhaps I should use a sales copy instead of ads?

    Or I could just quit IM altogether. That works too.

    Then again, it's been like 4 months with no return.

    I should probably quit life.

    /end rant.

    You should explain a bit more in detail about how you have your pages set up.

    Split test everything. Look for image, homepage rotation scripts, etc etc.

    You should have good copy with the links within the copy,if your site just has ads I am not in the least bit suprised you're not coverting.You need to put some effort in.Anyone can just run ads with no thought.Obviously I haven't seen your site(nor do I recommend you post it) but you'll know yourself.Video doesn't harm conversions either.

    Although you say your KWs are competitive are they buying kws, many people may search for "red ferarri", but what you want to rank for is, "where can I buy a red ferrari"

    If the KWs do not convert, whatever the traffic, they are useless (unless you are going for PPC and getting 1% clicks

    So if you your KWs are buying keywords, then your copy must need some work.

    Or just sneakily redirect them to the hop site :)

    Yep, I'm going to be testing a sales copy with links in it once I'm able to afford to get one written :p
