    I made a site in a competitive gaming niche just to see if I could rank it, now I'm looking for suggestions on how to monetize gaming traffic well. All I can think of is content locking or referring to a GPT, but I'm sure there's higher converting options.

    Any advice is appreciated

    Game related CPA, referring to sites like Points 2 Shop, Rewards 1 can work well too.

    I got a vampire rpg blog and I am trying to monetise is as well. I think that CPA based ads work best but unlike advertising through networks like max bounty, etc ... I advertise directly. Best thing is, it allows me to target any country traffic. Each country sign up pays differently but, for example the one I am working with, for Denmark sign up, they pay me $2 whereas for US sign up - $1.75.

    It's a browser based game and not related to vampires so I suppose this is the reason why I rarely see the sign ups ... but yeah, if you have a targeted site I suppose it would work very well :)

    Try Intergi program they are adding value to their publishers by delivering quality campaigns and high CPMs.

    If you have a site with online games, you could try Mochi media. They offer in-game ads.

    Why don't you try adsense if you have original content.
