Hi all,

my website is Best Forex Broker
Keywords for this site should be at least 1CPC and upto 4 or even $6 per click.
I do maximumly get $0.40 per click.
I got some SEO done already for the site, and im starting to rank higher, but with 10 clicks a day at this rate, this is not what I did the site for.

Can you guys help me please?
Thanks in advance...

    It is not only depends on CPC of your targeted keywords. It depends user clicked on which ads and what is that keywords CPC. Also many things can affect on this like from where visitors came on your site, how many pages they served, what is bounce rate, and many more. Personally we can not do anything in this all.



    Cheers

    I would advise you spend a little time making the site look a bit more...well.....professional looking I guess is the word i am looking for.

    You seem to be using the basic standard word press template. It wouldn't exactly promote confidence in a financial market. Try maybe looking for some different templates to work with to improve the over all feel and image. In my honest opinion, if I landed on that site looking for fortex information, I'm afraid i would be another bounced statistic simply down to first impressions. I am not being negative towards your work, just trying to offer some helpful advise with the intention of helping increase your results.

    Check the back end of your word press and you click the " appearance" button and install new look templates with the click of a button. If you need any help, just ask and ill be happy to assist.

      Well, Im sending here to ask for help. I've changed the website a bit, lowered the number of ads and making things look better and trying to make it more professional.
      Bottomline : I would accept constructive criticism, If its that awful to you, kindly, just dont write it down.
      Thanks...

    There is not any guarantee that you earn i.e $6 for every click on the ads on your website. These are only estimates and it depends on many other factors too. For example the time of day. In some hours ads are more and the competition between ads for showing, causes that they value more and clicks ends to more money for you. IMO $.40 per click is good and its not such low that you think.

    40 cents is pretty good for a spammy site.

    Your CPC is not determined by keywords. It's
    determined by who's bidding on your site. Sorry
    site = sorry bidders.

    Seriously. Who do you think is going to spend
    money advertising on your site?

    40 cents is a gift. Should be more like 4 cents.

    You are getting bottom feeders.

    Most (all?) forex MFA sites are borderline breaking TOS
    anyway.

    If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    On the main page I count 7 ads.

    - might want to check out Google's TOS
    - some ads are actually cutting into the sidebar ads
    - low CPC = low competition keywords associated with those ads
    - very slow to load, try caching plugin
    - call to action for "something"
    - call to action for optin
    - analytics to see keywords / searches

    Forex is highly competitive, you might want to rethink your strategy. Your design needs to convey much better "trustability", don't know how else to describe it.

    Hi Auditt,

    I would recommend checking out the following two videos from Google. they might be helpful in understanding the many factors that enter in to what you are earning per click.

    Insight into your earnings Part I: Explaining the ad auction - Inside AdSense

    I hope you find this helpful.

    Yeah you really need to look at the site and the number of adsense boxes IMO.

    Get a nice banner done for your header, some good images, add a side column. Guess there is a lot to do to change but just make one change at a time and monitor its effectiveness. This will not only help you with this site but with future sites you make too.

        No, you don't need to do that. It will change the setting automatically for your ads.

      It does not look that bad even if a tad bit low in content.

    • Hi auditt05,

      Do you still work with adsense ? I have seen you work with fxcash ? I have two new forex sites and I'm looking for CPA banners with a forex broker like avafx or/and a paid per click banner like adsense,fxcash.com,etc... What do you suggest ?

      Thank you
