Hi All, I've had a news commentary/blog going for the past several months, and its struggling. I think there's something that I'm not getting.
Background: I'm running AdSense, and its not doing anything for me. After three months my account has $14, but of course that means squat until I get another $86. I've applied for YPN, but haven't been approved for their beta program yet.
Here are my questions.
Traffic: other than SEO, what can I be doing to build traffic? I'm in a couple of blog networks, but they don't do much for me. I'm at ~100 hits/day now, though that is increasing ever so slowly. I definitely wouldn't say I have critical mass, or that I've cleared any hurdle. What am I missing?
Monetizing: I recognize that 100 hits/day isn't worth much to advertisers, but $4/mo is not cutting it. Other's I've heard clear $100-400 in their first month, and right now $100/mo sounds pretty good to me.
Thanks in advance for any tips,
