Hey there!

About a month ago, I opened up a new blog, about WordPress Themes and Plugins. I began reviewing them, as well as writing tutorials and guides about other WordPress topics.

I would really like to make some money from this, and whilst I have got Envato referral links, I don’t seem to be very successful with getting any money.

I have setup Google Adsense, but again, that’s not making much of a difference.

I had received over 50,000 unique visitors in the first month, but I would like to know ways to make more money from this site.

Unfortunately, I cannot share the link to the site here as it would be self-promotion, but if anyone has any general tips for this type of site, then it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sam :)

Edit: I forgot to say that I had already applied for BuySellAds, but they declined me.

It takes time…
Even with a lot of visitors, there are a lot of factors to weight in.

I started something similar last year but I gave up because it was to much time consuming considering the money one gets. At least for me that I don’t really like to write. But it can be a good investment. I only wrote a couple of articles, but from time to time I get a referal cut from Themes I referenced there, like 6 months after the article has been written. So don’t worry about the referrals links not working yet…

If you’re available to do plugin reviews and are interested in any of mines let me know :)
