    So I've found it relatively easy for me to rank quite good for games related keywords (tested with 1 website), I guess it wouldn't be that hard to create an authority site around a mmorpg game that I used to play. I would have est. 20-30k UV a month, and 20-30% of those visits would be US visitors.

    Is it worth my time to create such website?
    I've heard it's kinda pain in the a*s to monetize a website like that.
    Give me your thoughs.

    i dont know how much money could you make with gaming niche...not i nit

    its usually kids who dont have $$$

    so affiliate programs conected with game will not work i think, maybe adsense (or other ppc) would be best choice

    I was thinking about using content locker to monetize those kind of sites, or email submits. What do ya'll think?

    content blocker is the strongest way to monetize that type of site...
