I have been runnning and building up a travel blog over the last year and a half, I focus mainly on budget,backpacking and adventure travel and have over 100 posts. I get around 10k monthly pageviews with 2.3k Uniques with over 83% of my traffic being organic. Most of my viewers are people looking 18-35 in the US looking to plan a backpacking/adventure trip.
I have a couple of posts with amazon affiliate links in them that generate about $5 on average a month in total, and I have tried running a adsense on the site however after a couple of weeks I haven't gotten any clicks and only generated 4c.
I am currently travelling around and it's my dream to be able to earn money as a digital nomad and travel around the world working from my laptop. I currently make a little bit of money from doing sponsored ad link posts here and there but no real consistant income.
If anyone has any advice on what I could do to monetize this traffic I would really appreciate it. I was thinking maybe I could try to choose a few products that I think my viewers would really be interested in and putting up ads to that page on my site and trying to funnel a lot of traffic to that page where I have a bunch of affiliate items for sale? Any advice would be really really appreciated.
