Hello,

I'm new to using adsense, I usually sold my traffic to adtegrity.com I own three very large gaming sites, and between them I can adverage around 2,500 hits a day. However, I'm not getting hardly anything per click.... I'm currently adveraging .022cent per click?

Ops... you should not discuss pay per click, that's against the rules....

Gaming and entertainment sites have very low cpc. It is through sheer volume of page impressions that you are likley to make a decent income.

I can run upwards of 1,000 hits a day on my site, but at 2 cent a hit its not really worth it... Do you find that image ads pay better then text?

How many visitors and page views do you see daily?

remember that your earnings per click (epc) could be only a fraction of the cost per click (cpc) that incurs for the the advertiser with google.

if you have highly frequented sites with many page impressions and the worst case audience which is typical for gaming sites (internet savvy kiddies low on budget), then there's no wonder you are drastically smartpriced because of low quality clicks..
