    Try moving your adsense blocks to different locations and make sure to put a separate channel on each of them so you can track the success of the individual blocks. For starters, you should try putting an ad block right under your title. Hope this helps!

    You could try a new advertiser for a trial period to see if you get a better click through rate. Maybe Bidvertiser.
    Another approach you could try is to put up your own "adsense" type ad blocks in which you put ads for any of your affiliate products or services. There's a website called "favads" that lets you do it. I think it's seven bucks to join but you can at at least put up your own ads, and it has a facility to choose a number of Clickbank products to advertise with your own ID.

    Hope this helps

    When you are creating a new ad block you have the option to include a channel with it. All it does is put a small code inside the adsense code that tracks the performance of just that particular ad. It's great for determining which of your ads are getting clicks and which ones need some tweaking. Hope this helps!

    With around 2,000 visitors a day, the number of clicks should be around 20 or so a day. If that. Only a half to one percent click on most ads.

    So you don't have that much more to go.

    But, if those 2,000 are the same visitors, it will be much less than that.

    I think you should make your text color "white" in your ads. They almost look invisible with the dark gray. You should also try rotating between Text ads and Image Ads. Another alternative would be to have text ad, image ad, and then text ad. This way you're using a little diversity.

    BTW, why don't you include your blog link in your signature? This way you won't get penalized for spamming.

    Bidvertiser is supposed a good alternative but I never had any good experiences with them. The only solid alternative I could think of would be to sell your ads on Adbrite.com. Adbrite also have a program called "inline ads" which can supplement your adsense click earnings. It basically adds a green link to keywords on your website which generates an ad once somebody hovers over the link with their cursor.

    Your website looks MUCH better now. One of your ads actually caught my interest and I ended up clicking on it. If they were still dark gray I probably would've never noticed it.

    Bidvertiser has a low CTR, you could try affiliates
