    Hey Guys,

    I'm not sure if this is the right section but, I am about to snag the first spot on Google with my niche site based in the firearms niche (1900 local searches a month) and I was wondering if you guys could suggest some monetization methods besides adsense (.64 cpc). So I know it was a little reckless making a website without having a plan but I got hasty because the competition was very low. But, if you have experience in this niche and have an idea on what to do and if you could guess how much I should expect to make per month. Thanks Guys!

    Lol there is a reason the competition is low in this niche.

    But you need to think about things that every gun owner needs.....like ammo, gun cleaning kits, gun locks, gun cases, scopes,ect. Heck, even Cabela's has a affiliate program...so put one of their banners on your site

    So do a google search for things like "ammo affiliate"

    Come back and let us know if your site does better than with adsense.

    Look around for retailers, show them some traffic statistics then offer them an ad placement in form of banners and site-wide links.

    Alright thanks guys, i'd be happy with around $100 or more a month as this was more of a learning experience.

    Is the site just for USA users or would it cover other countries as well. ??
