    Hi guys, I don't know if it's the right forum but I need some advice for my website.

    I have a movie/tvshows streaming site (all videos are divx-quality, not flash, from multiple source). I'll post some info for the last 6 days :
    - UV around 1k-1.5k/day
    - Pageviews 3k-4k/day
    - Traffic sources : 55% Refferer, 32% Direct Traffic, 13% Search Engine
    - Visitors : 33% USA, 10% UK, 57% the rest

    Currently I'm using Adbrite and Clicksor but I get only around 1.5$ / day from them :(. Is it normal? I've also tried the combination with Chitika but it was bad because my traffic sources come from Refferer & Direct Traffic.

    What's the best way to monetize it? I don't want to use gateway ads such as ************** / Zango because it's against the TOS of websites where I submit my links.

    Thanks in advance :tee:

    with your numbers with cp@lead you could make around 40-50$ / day. if you add codebraker though with some email submits you could make around 100-120$ / day.

    other good choices i dont see.

    like I said, I won't use gateway ads like cp@lead because it's against TOS of movie list sites where I submit the links. The other reason is, I think people will get annoyed if I lock the content and they will just leave and search other sites (there are tons of website which have same content with mine :()

    but thx anyway for the idea, maybe I'll use it in the future :D

    anyone with more ideas? please help this newbie :tee:

    stick up a paypal donate button? "Help this site stay free!"

    The usual thing would be to protect it with gateway like others have said. You WILL make money that way

    Use a gateway.. You'll lose half of your traffic, but you'll make 5 times more than what you're doing now.

    a email submit with a gateway will not lose any traffic... just make sure when you say "view a ad to keep this site free!!"

    I know it is against you TOS but as others have said i would suggest a gateway. I do something similar and have had very good results.

    Premium accounts are often a nice source of cash.
    Better quality and better download rates.
    Or you could limit the number of views to 5 per day per IP and premium accounts are unrestricted.

    That only works if you've many users who really like your site of course.
