    Hi all,
    My site gets about 100 uniques a day from google and its an alexa rank of 900k-1mil. Its a security, seo, hacking blog and ranks high on a fair few posts. Its got over 900 indexed pages and ranks fairly good within a day of making a post.

    Currently its got 0 adds on it but ive got a couple of links to my other sites.

    How exactly could I monetize it? its also got 6k registered users and grows by about 100 a day.

    What would this site be worth if sold? its 100% unique content

    Ive tried amazon adds, got banned my adsense and adbrite rejected me because of the word hack in my domain...

    Maybe I would be better off dropping posts now and then about related products? if anyone has any suggestions on monetizing post it here or inbox me.

    Basically its my main website and id like to think I was making atleast what it costs to run it out of it.

    Cheers.

    I think with this blog you can go with pey per install offers.
    Such networks as loudmo. As your blog is hacks i think even if you put to the sidebar links with title "recomended hack software" you will have good convert.
    The only problem with this networks(ppi) that antivirus can detect this files as a virus but for you it is a BIG + as people will think that they downloading extrimly good hack software

    Thanks mate,
    Could give that a try. Even these sites where they have to pay like $5 for an acc to dload the files. If I say link them to a highly reccomended hack and make all mirrors offline except this one that could bring even better conversions.

    The only issue though is id rather not 'scam' people by getting them to install PPI since its a legit blog/site.

    any other methods?

    Looks like your building a community so I wouldn't do PPI/content locking.. especially since this is a hacking related site.

    Offer a product/service/access for your members for a fee (e.g. Jr. VIP here)

    Once you get bigger, advertisers will come to you.
