No matter what I do, I'm not getting any relevant ads. I have tried finding a slightly relative category, blocking RON ads but my CTR doesn't change much, only my earnings.

So, are there any particularly profitable categories?

Would you be interested in buying an ebook about it? There are a wide selection!

I guess, but does anyone have any experience with a category that seemed to give some good results?

As I said, I've experimented with a few and it didn't seem to affect the CTR at all, and figured I might as well choose a "good" category while I'm at it :D

Sheesh, calm down...why wouldn't you help someone out if you've already been through the trouble.

I _have_ been doing some "homework", but I'm a little too busy to try out each category. If someone knows and is willing to help me out, please do. Otherwise, you're not helping anyone by dismissing the question.

Thanks

What do you mean by profitable categories? Are you looking for topics for your websites that will generate high paying ads?

Profitable, I presume, means a high income to investment ratio. Unfortunately, every failed site is part of the investment for the profitable sites.

If Jim starts 10 sites on different subjects, taking 50 hours each, that's 500 hours serious time investment alone. One of those may do well, and give $X a day.

If Jim tells you the subject of that one site, then you will make $X a day for 50 hours work, profitability $X/50. Jim himself has had to invest 500 hours so his profitability is $X/500, 10 times less. Not only that, but your new site will directly compete with Jim's site, cutting his profitability even further.

Does that explain why nobody here is likely to tell you of the profitable topics they have found through research, trial, and error?

Actually, I should say "highest-paying". I...forget it, people haven't been terribly helpful so far.

You might as well start asking people if they would mind putting a few of your ads on their sites just to see how profitable their site is. Laziness.

I'd say Sidewalk Chalk, Gym Socks and Bubble Gum.

Read the archives, there is plenty of info on how to find a profitable niche. Once word gets out that a niche is high paying it becomes a low paying niche with tons of competing sites so no one in their right mind would disclose what is making a killing.
