    I got a make money online -blog, http://BlackhatWay.com

    I have started to see some traffic (50-100/day)and subscribers(over 100).

    I would like to start monetizing. I don't need to make to much from it. Something to pay the hosting fees and competition prizes.

    Any suggestions? I got no ideas of how to monetize mmo-blogs.. I don't want to sell any shitty ebooks to my readers. Some affilaite-programs could do, but I don't know which ones would convert. Hostgator is way overused and I don't even use it myself.

    private advertising. Find website, producs, softs, who would be interested in promoting to your readership.OR blackhat softs, seoelite, keyword elite, this are all good programes worth promoting. Also, membership sites, text link ads, and all other backlink programs who offer good commissions. Just find something of quality to promote - not ebooks.

    Hey lowboman fyi I find your comment very inappropriate:

    Man that's really not cool. No shit the guy isn't that great yet but at least he's put something into action and is just looking for solid feedback. The guy asked a good question and didn't deserve such an immature response. Your feedback to him was vague and pretty useless too btw. The forum isn't isn't a tool to put people down so you can feel better about yourself.

    You should take notes from Nick Flame and offer solid no dick head response content and lift up those who are here to offer value and learn.

    I can see why you've been thanked 3 times. You're a valued Jr VIP member so please act like one.

  5. Nice site man, I don't know how long you've been doing this but if that's your start then you're doing a good job so far. I bet with a little more work that site will pay for it's own hosting and stuff soon. Do you do all your own design work or borrow it? Keep promoting it!

    Heh, didn't find lowbomans comment too bad. :D

    I am of course looking for advertisers all the time. Made one $17 ad sale so far. =P Going to start hunting more when my contest ends.
    I was also thinking about selling my own products, but I don't know if those would better sold or given away to subscribers.

    Thanks for all the tips.

    And Blacksombrero, I don't design anything myself. I suck at it. =P
    The header, banners etc. were made by some freelancer.

    going strong arent you?
    I found your blog Through universitykid few days back.
    as for your question:
    private ad placements.
    reviews would be a big market like sponsored reviews and all that sites.once you go below like alexa 2 lakh you would get contacted for reviews.
    according to me adsense sucks mmo blogs.

    I just don't seem to attract advertisers too much. I'm going to start emailing other blogs and priducts if they'd like to advertise. And I think that I should get Oio Publisher. =P Might help a bit.

    Just lowered my advertising prices today if anyone's interested. :D

    Nice looking site and it looks like you have some good info on it.

    One suggestion about it that I can offer is to redo your anchor text to internal pages. It will help your SEO efforts if you rename your internal links to reflect what your post is about instead of "read this" or "last post".

    As for the monetization, I would put ads on it for things like SEO Elite, Keyword Elite or any other affiliate programs that are useful for BH'ers or people that are into blogging, keyword research, etc...
