    So guys, this is somehow funny. I took over a fan web about LoL which is averaging 700+ UVs per day. Visitors are very active and engaging with the content.

    However, I don't play this game myself and I don't know how to monetize it. Is it possible to sell "riot points" on my own? Or any other method? Please note this is NOT an English web. I can't promote guides / ebooks from CB etc.

    Thanks for suggestions

    Games traffic pays really well per click. Probably have a CPC gold mine there mate.

    You could also sell elo boosts and hire a pro LoL player to perform the service.

    If you don't really care about the reputation of your website, you could easily add a giveaway/content locker for "gold" / "gems" / "hacks" or whatever the players are interested to. I'm pretty sure it would work ok.

    You have really targeted & active traffic. You should consider opening a JV thread if you're not familiar with this game. I'm pretty sure someone would be happy to milk the visitors for you.

    Couple ideas that popped up just now.
    • League of legends is a free moba game. Try to banner advertise something similar like smite and promote it as an alternative version of it. Something like "The Reason LoL Will Never Become as Good as Smite". (hint* networks already have smite, or similar games.)
    • You can advertise other games, based on the networks you are affiliate with. There are also big e-commerce gaming sites, selling games and accessories, they also have affiliate programs.
    • People who play LoL like to buy skins. There are a few sites that sell rare skins and they have affiliate programs.
    • Try to see if they are any CB products, "how to become pro in Lol", etc, or even non CB.
    • Your standard method: article review/news + adsense everywhere


    Basically you`re stepping into gaming territory and you can sell everything that evolves around that.
    I hope I helped.

    How did you take over this fan web? And by fan web do you mean a website?

    Sell riot points, offer boosting through the ranking system, sell guides from supposedly high tier ranked players, offer skype tuition from supposedly high tier ranked players. There are many ways actually.

    What most sells on LoL community is the skins (champion different outfits) you can easily put a CPA and when they get you enough money you can give them a redeem code. Had a similar idea but I was too lazy to execute.
