    Default No clicks and good traffic

    I am stumped. I have several niche sites that are ranked at the top of google. They get anywhere from 200-300 uniques a day, and I'm getting no adsense clicks on those sites. Seems a waste.

    Any ideas why?

    Maybe I should take adsense off those sites and try a CPA or something.

    Mike

    Edit: I just noticed that 75% are leaving after ONLY 5 seconds or less, and I'm telling you these sites have great, relevant content, and look good too! What the heck is going on?

    Too small? A couple of hundred visitors is nice, but you need 10 times that number to really earn money. Are your ads being properly targeted? Post a URL for the site.

    ((login for URL))oogle is showing a ton of non-relevant ads too! So that's not helping me at all.

    Time is what you need. Your site has been up for 9 months. Work on your SEO. Buy some Adwords or Facebook ads. Build on what you have there. I've got 100 times more visitors than you but I stared in 1999! and have used Adsense since 2003. For the first year I used Adsense I was lucky to make $3 a day. It takes a while.

    Are you using the WP SEO plugins and the Sitemap submission plugins? Have you configured Webmaster Tools and such? Do you have a Facebook fan page and a Twitter page?

    What Geartalk says is true.

    If it were my site I would blend the ads, I would give the blue title the same #333333 as the rest of your site's links and the green url #aaaaaa.

    In my opinion the color scheme of your ads screams "I AM AN AD!" and that's no good, at least on this site about golf stuff.

    Did you try other color schemes?

    I'm not following you.

    You mean make the Blue Title Links Black, and then the URL's what color?

    Yeah, I figured it out after I sent the post.

    You mean like: ((login for URL))

    Right, that looks much better to me.

    You could do a ((login for URL)) using for instance the following code that will show a different Ad Unit with a different colour combination on every page load:
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $numberofadunits 
    3// Number of Ad Units
    $random rand(1,$numberofadunits);

    $Ad_units = array();

    $Ad_units[1] = <<<EOT
    PLACE YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
    EOT;

    $Ad_units[2] = <<<EOT
    PLACE YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
    EOT;

    $Ad_units[3] = <<<EOT
    PLACE YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
    EOT;

        echo 
    $Ad_units[$random];

    ?>
    You can use more or less Ad Units, simply adjust:
    PHP Code:
    $numberofadunits 3// Number of Ad Units 
    and add or remove:
    PHP Code:
    $Ad_units[3] = <<<EOT
    PLACE YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
    EOT; 
    If you add more Ad Units you will have to change the number, for instance if you add a fourth Ad Unit you would add:
    PHP Code:
    $Ad_units[4] = <<<EOT
    PLACE YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE
    EOT; 
    Doing this over a period of time will show you which colour combination works best on your site.

    Thank you!

    I'm bummed out at the crappy, non-relevant ads google is showing on those sites. They have great, unique content, so I don't know why google is doing that.
