    You could definitely add some banner ads. I've seen some really good banner ads related to gold which would go well with the topic of your site.

    You want to set up to catch emails, then set up a email auto responder and give them free products, free information, and then sell them high commission products.

    Make sure you build trust with your email subscribers first and then sell to them...

    Money is in the list.

    Regards,

    yikes man...get rid of the adsense block looks horrible. Better to have a squeeze page and offer a free report on how to make money by utilizing your knowledge. Your page also loads too slow.

    Then once you build up a list, offer them a product for a price then test everything.

      I agree.

      Make the adsense blend in a little more with the page so it does stick out as much.

      The 250x250 does well on sites smaller in width. Sprinkle them through your content. Right now, the site needs to have a smoother look to keep it sticky.

      Check out these sizes.

      Also...

      1. Bring everything in. Reduce the size of the webpage and make your ads more apparent.

      2. Have a pop-up or a free report as mentioned so you can capture emails. Do a slight delay, like 5+ seconds. This way they are not hit with with a popup the second they see your site.

      Hope this helps.

    Among the many options...

    Spend some time also at finance, investing and stock market targeted forum. Make sure to add better content or updated weekly content to say the least before going at those specific targeted forums.

    Do you have social media integration? What about a Facebook page or a Twitter profile? You could do very well to make a few lists on Twitter or Facebook. You can also strike a conversation with some of your clients through social media to see what kinds of thing they're looking for.
