    Hey, so 2 days ago I setup my own arcade game website, I did some seo research and bought a few backlinks.

    I am getting about 5-9k sessions a day. Right now there has been 24k sessions and abour 30k page views.

    I would like to find how I could monetize this site easily? as I dont think that this traffic is anything to earn from adsense.

    Most of the traffic is english, from eu and us.

    Google adsense has not yet updated for today.

    I'd understand that comment if he didn't have any traffic, but he obviously have traffic and that's after only 2 days, so I imagine that it will continue to grow.
    There's no harm in trying.

    @OP I used to know few decent ad networks that were suited for your site, but sadly I don't remember them, nor can I find any of them searching my bookmarks etc..., but what I can suggest is that you just google gaming ad networks and check what shows up. After that check each network to see if they pay and start testing those that have proof of payment.

    I own two arcade sites and can say that it's really easy to get traffic to these sites but monetization is very difficult (I assume that you don't develop the games yourself)
    Adsense is the easiest solution but the CPC will be very low and Adsense has strict rules for flash game sites.
    You can use Gaming Ad Networks like EpicGameAds or CPMStar but, from my experience, they pay less than Adsense.
    You can use CPA ads but I don't think that'd convert unless the offer is super related to the game.
    You can promote Android games on your site and get paid as an affiliate.
    You can create your own Android Game and use your site to promote it.
    You can create your own flash games using Sentcyl and put Adsense ads inside your games. (Best option)

    You can also use your site to build list. Give them option to download the game but to download they must fill in their email address. You can then email them products to sell but I don't think this will convert well.

    Edit: You can also use your site to sell REAL Facebook likes or Google plus ones. Let the visitors download the game but lock the download link and user must press the "Like" button to download the game. This way you can generate real likes for your clients.

    i have arcade sites for more than 12 years. i agree with http://www.blackhatworld.com/members/hajroboss.895889/ taht your site isn't even indexed. This traffic is bought from somewhere. And this traffic is not targeted for games. Game plays are too few for that amount traffic. 1 visitor makes at least 3 game plays if you get them from seaech engines even if you get him with spam.

    Why your gameplay counter differ so much with your # of sessions. I would expect your most played games have 500-1000 each one, no 2-5 showed in the attachment.
    In that kind of sites, people usually play 2-3 games per session. I think there is something weird in your post.

    I hope you don't create this post to later put your seo-service signature, I hope so.

    If there is about 500 one one page alone, and each game ranges from 1-5 playes. then I wouldnt think so. not everyone is going to play the same game.

    And the most played tab is at the bottom of the page so it is not much visable.

    Simple Just create a text link in your games descriptions or above title like "Buy PC games at 50% off" etc

    kids play arcade games and kids dont have money.
    look at your competitors and see what they're promoting.
    there are affiliate networks that pay for app installs. i'd look into that.
    put up attractive banners for popular andriod/ios games and get paid for every download.
    i can see that converting well for your niche.
    good luck.
