    It's a blog website for a particular video game. There's articles, tips, strategies, and videos. If I get 4,000 a day on average, how much money can I make? What is my best option to monetize the site?

    Hard question.. Since it's for a particular game moste of the users do already own a copy of it - if they search for strategies and such..
    Mabye you could content lock the full strategie and only show some parts of it in public? Adsense along with the videos? Be sure to add an email optin aswell.

    This is a very hard question... No one can give you a correct answer.

    But you have the best answer to this question... Why? because you can try different method and see what bring you the biggest profit. So the best way to find out is to try make some test.

    First try with adsense since this is easy to set-up. And while you are running those ads try to make a product that you can sell to your users, eBooks with advance tricks and strategies , a paid newsletter things like that.

    Once you are satisfy of your product you can start to sell it along with running adsense ads and see what happen and how your profit looks like.

    Just in addition to what has already been mentioned:

    A video game site is very much comparable to a churn and burn site. Once the next version of the game comes out or the game is not that popular any more, your traffic will drastically decline.
    This is the reason why you have to be fast in monetizing the site. I also would look into some CPA stuff and, of course, affiliate programs for related games.

    The better option is to try adsense as you can keep going initially with some amount. And you can try things that keep you experimenting things. Its your doll and you should make it sing.

    What about CPM? Is that payoff not good? I never really see it talked about on these boards.

    It depends. If you sell homes and you happen to sell 1 out of 4000 per day, you're gonna be Donald Trump in a few months.
