Lightbulb How to effectively monetize a humor photography blog?

Hey yall,

Can I ask for help?

My blog's content is all pictures. I run Adsense on it but isn't working well. Out of 200 views, I only get 1 click.

I only have 1 ad block (image only) on the sidebar since I don't want to bombard my visitors with ads. Any suggestions?

try to search product in amazon that has relation with humor. I think you can get good sales from there if your traffic is very targeting traffic from earch engine

One click out of 200 views is not bad. Getting clicks can be difficult. Instead of image only try the text, image and rich media ad option.

Try selling camera etc that is related photography. Also keep direct advertising option - try buysellads.com.

I think jseusfreaks had a point there. You may want to put up humor-related product for more avenue for money-making. It is also important you drive more traffic to your blog.

Some niches arent too good for monetization. Unfortunately I believe this to be one of them.

Without viewing your blog i can tell you what i think the problem is.

If the blog's content is mainly all pictures with not much content on the page, the adsense ads won't really adapt really well and not show to many related ads.

Why don't you create a thread in our WEBSITE REVIEW section for a full website review given by members on this forum. Perhaps with some tips from us, the adsense revenue will pickup.

Get some content under each picture that you upload to your blog. You can try adding a few LINK UNIT's on your blog. (Keep the ad block in the side column but use image/text ads)

Click on the link below to look at the size's that you could use. (I use 2 link units on my blog. One at the bottom of the blog post and one in the side panel.)

https://support.google.com/adsense/b...&answer=185679

These ads won't get in the way of your visitors and could give you a few more click's.

Also, why not sell advertising spots or have a PREMIUM photo section on your blog in which costs money to unlock the content? That could be a way to earn revenue. Think outside the box.

Maybe you could try finding a way to promote tickets for comody tours. Can you post us a link so that we can see what the site is like

why thread author is not responding to this thread??? if that many people are giving him advice then he should come out and say something instead of just make a post and leave it forever. I don't think he really need help but he is just making post and leaving them to make his post count...!!!
