Sorry to hear you've been struggling for the past two years. Anyway, yeah Sean Morrissy is a pretty cool guy. I've actually met him in person, and yeah Mark Ling (the guy that runs this site) mentored him "back in the day."
You say you get about 100 visitors / day to the yeast infection site? That's a pretty good achievement. That may not be a ton of traffic, but it's more than most people get. Where is your traffic coming from? Search engines?
What is your click through on your affiliate links (traffic to site vs. hop clicks)? What is your affiliate conversion rate (hop clicks per sale)?
A "good" landing page will convert at about 1:100, so if you sent 100 people to Yeast Infection No More, then you should get 1 sale, on average.
How are those Google AdSense ads working out for you? If you're making more money with the affiliate offers, why not get rid of the adsense?
In my opinion, you need more calls-to-action on your site. I see that you've got some ads, but to me, they look too much like banner ads, which people tend to ignore more often. Maybe if you had some text ads and your graphic ads looked a bit more like pictures, it would help your click throughs.
Oh, and I don't think you need the social bookmarking gizmo on the bottom of your pages. That might help in other niches, but I doubt too many people are going to want to share with their friend about their yeast infection.
I think the other two sites look better, but they could use more content. How are you getting traffic to these sites?
Again, though, you've got three sites, and at least one of them is getting pretty decent traffic, so don't beat yourself up too much. You've achieved a lot. In my experience, once you've got the traffic flowing, all you need to do is just polish things up a bit to help conversions. Getting the traffic is the hard part.
Well, I hope this helps.
