    You could build up traffic and then monetize them with things like Google AdSense.

    The following is just my opinion.

    1. elitefastcars
    I didn't care for the layout here at all.

    2. elitehybridcars
    Nor here. Both of these need serious help as far as the looks go. I think I stayed on them for 10-15 seconds before I realized I hate them.

    3. elite-custom-cars
    This site was very nice. Very nice. I really liked it and if I had any interest in cars at all, I'd probably spend time there reading and maybe click an ad.

        Everything. There wasn't a single thing I liked about the two I pointed out; the third one, there wasn't a single thing I didn't like. Convert the other two to the third one's theme and rock it out.

    Yup..agree with JaRyCu. Other 2 websites should follow this layout. As for monetization, I'd go with Google Adsense.

    For traffic, you could go to car forums and participate in them. Use forum signature to point to your website.

    You can also commenting on popular car blogs.

      All three sites are awful looking. Clean it up, take out all of the ads and put maybe two or three of them back in. Also, reduce the number of columns from three to two. Looks a lot cleaner that way.

      Also, the last one is good in the respect that you are targeting a specific type of car (hybrids). But the first two...what audience are you targeting? You're all over the place with both of them.

      Lastly, the content is abysmal at best. I tried reading it, but couldn't get past the first paragraph. It was the most generic article that I think that I ever read.

      Take it from a nine year auto industry car guy...fix it, or it will go no where.

      PM me if you need any additional advice.

    There are lots of car accessories merchants in Commission Junction network. You can probably monetized with. Not hybrid cars related but that doesn't matter, as your blog will still drive visitors from the mass market. Just my opinion.

    A new web design will help, the sites look crowded. There are a lot of ways to monetize it as long as you can drive traffic. These sites is also great for local businesses related to cars. It can be car dealers or shops.

      Thank you all for your help. I guess I should of explained a little more on these sites. The last time I posted for help on a different forum, it was up for 5 minutes and was taken down. So I will start from the first site and see if you could help me a little more.

      First, the reason for me doing this is i injurd my shoulder to the point where I can not work a physitcal job for the rest of my life. And im not going to have a desk job for $10 hr. Need real money for me and my family.

      So after looking at my x-ray of my shoulder and saying FML, I started looking for ways to make money online. Like any newbie would see, a website could make you lots of money online. So I came across SBI and made the elitefastcars site with them. After trying my hardest to make some thing happen, months later I have no traffic and no point to sell any thing with no traffic. Then I thought way im I building this site when I can pay to have some one bring traffic. So I did. I hired an SEO team of 186 a month. I still have low traffic and its been 3 months with them.

      Right after I gave the site to the team to SEO the site, I started another site with SBI, elitehybridcars. I didn't want to bump heads with the team on the elitefastcars site. So I built the hybrid site, paid for some articals, paid for 500 search engine submissions. Posted in forums, facebook, yahoo, artical directory's and so on. Still very low traffic. I had ad sense but some A hole clicked away and i got kicked off and the appeal was denied.

      So after the second site wasn't going any where I started looking for ways to make money with out a website. I came across TB (traffic brokers). I signed up with them for a 7 day trail. Well when I did they offered a free website. I couldn't pass this up. All I had to do is buy a domain name and pay for hosting. So I did and named it elite-custom-cars. Yes that web site was handed to me the way you see it. I just payed to have it submitted to 500 search engines, submmited 50 artical directory's.

      So now I have 3 sites that have no traffic or make any money. I haven't made 1 penny, yes that right not 1 penny. Not even on my dashboards for TB, clickbank, chitika for my ads.

      I spent thousands of $ and hundresds of hours, averge 8-10 hours per day and weekends on trying to find that click in my head to get it. For some reason im not getting it. I understand what needs to be done but I cant figure out how to make it work. I know having 3 websites all being related to automotive should bring in a crap load of traffic and should make alot of money. For some reason I cant figure it out.



      Thanks for your time,
      Justin Erickson

    I would focus on getting traffic to your site. Provide potentials customers with an informative site that is easy to navigate. You could monetize with Adsense.

    Why not take one of your three, invest a little money in creating a top quality sleek design, monetize it, generate revenue and invest in the next. Then take this experience on to the next one?

    It is completely irrelevant how your sites look if you are not getting any hits. Have you done proper keyword research? I would imagine that the terms hybrid cars, fast cars and custom cars have a lot of searches but not with the elite in front of it. If you are targeting the the terms fast cars etc. the look how hard the competition is in the first 5-6 results on Google against how many hits to see if it is worth targeting.

    As someone else mentioned the articals on the site are very badly written. You had may as well scrap them now and start them again either writing them yourself as I presume you have a passion for it or taking up the offer of Koreancowboy above.

    I think if you have spent thousands of dollars on these sites then look at your costs and cut out anything you don't need. By spending money on SEO before you have any idea on how to monetize the site is very foolish. Also stop that annoying advert on the hybrid cars website that is a sure fire way to increase your bounce rate straight away.

    If what you are advertising in your signature is your site, you may want to start there to learn how to make money on the Internet.

    Besides that, focus on ONE site and temporarily forget the other two.
