    Keep it up, but 5-10 hits a day is not much in the scheme of things. You've gotta think in terms of the value of a visitor though. Some sites out there can make a killing off of 50 targeted hits a day, others need 50,000 hits to make anything worthwhile. It depends whether the visitor's in the mood to shop or to entertain themselves for free :)

    Promote your blog, via YT or other social medias. This will help you increase your visitor stats.

    Grind it out in the beginning. Nobody can just start a site and make $1000s of dollars the next day. From what I see your not doing bad for a new site w/o any advertising.

    Good luck!

    There are a lot of good gaming blogs out there. Take ideas and form them into your own. Gaming content is easy to produce and come by. Best of luck to you in your attempt to increase traffic.

    Im doing the same thing--I JUST started my gaming blog gameplayersdaily and its slooooow. Im getting about 9 views a day. I do have an autoblogger that posts once a day on top of what I do but I also post my own daily content as well. I have no clue where to even start.

    **i do apologize for the solicitation, ive never seen anyone do this on BHW so if i can't ill remove my post**

    i have a gaming site as well, if anyone is interested in doing a link exchange or selling me a link please let me know. however im really trying to take it slow and i only want links to and from unique content as i want to build something worthwhile.

    if anyone is interested in talking about their respective gaming sites and exchanging ideas im down for that as well.

    Yes, gaming sites are a hit.

    Basically, any site in the entertainment niche is a big hit..

    There are infinite ways to promote sites like these...

    Well that's because your promotion is not enough.

    Are you doing PPC, Fb ads, media buys etc?

    Are you doing YT videos?
