    Need some Help, what would you do for this site


    Hi everyone,

    what would you do if you only had to get this site making about 50 cents a day with google ads.

    www dot seattletravelwatch dot com

    I really appreciate any thoughts on what you would do, can someone help a guy out here?

    The first thing that I would do is add a lot ore content. Google loves text, the market your in has heaps to write about so get cracking. You will see an immediate boost in long tail traffic.

    The next thing that I would do is change the position of your adds. I had to look to find them. If its your only revenue stream then place them prominently on your landing pages. Only do this however if your not monetizing your site in other ways as increasing the CTR will divert traffic from your site

    Throw it all away. Make it a content site about Seattle. Learn where to place ads for best yield that does not stink up your content.

    Thanks for the ideas, so you're saying maybe just write loads of content about places to stay in seattle, write reviews about bed and breakfasts and tour companys, things to do when you're in Seattle?

    Pretty competitive stuff, but wouldnt it just be easier to get like 50 link exchanges with websites that are local to Seattle?

    ... I forgot... your goal was fifty cents... so do that link exchange if you want to make fifty cents.

    The advice I gave was to make fifty dollars.

    Thanks, but I think something I might try as well is to write an amazing article about a tour company in Seattle, or something like that and then email them asking them to link to the article with "featured on seattleblahblahdotcom"

    Yes, I agree... do that one hundred times. You will make $50 per day at least.... but if your article is anything less than amazing you are wasting your time.

    Will a one way link from this page be worth anything:
