    Hi guys,

    So I have tried loads of things to monetize my game modding site last year with not much luck - I started this site in 2008 as a hobby when I was in university. I didn't know much about monetizing anything and I have missed out massively by only sticking to Google Adsense all these years!.. Total downloads count as of today is 6 million for all files.

    As adsense income is declining i needed another way to generate revenue. I have tried gaming ad networks(none comprared to Adsense) - Then I tried bundle installers from tightrope interactive! Got awesome income $500 in a month for only 10 files. (there are hundreds of mods) - But the downside to this was it was detected as a virus for many users and i started getting complaints, if I had kept at it then I fear I would have turned away many users. Also some people were reporting the mod file wasn't downloaded using the installer.

    Then I moved on to popads.. total rubbish 500 downloads and only $0.79. so I got rid of that.

    I am just looking for un-intrusive popunder/interstiatil or survey(that can be skipped) which can always generate at least $0.01. I get enough downloads for this to be profitable.
    Any other suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks for any help you guys can give. I wish i found this place sooner!

    Kind Regards,
    Zenin

    try use filehosting like ul.to you can earn €40 (tier 1) for any file above 100mb but if your files is under from 100mb as i remember you get €10 or mediafree.co you can earn $6 (tier 1), but before go to link to download your mods puts link like adf-ly, linkbucks, gca.sh, etc.

    Try filefactory, they look serious and they pay you up to 40$ per 1000 downloads(no survey) tier 1, they also pay you a percentage if your visitors buys a premium account there, its a big plus, you will combine ppd and pps without hurting your bounce rate.

    Use betterinstaller, its the less detectable and you are able to bundle other PPI networks downloaders, it will come out like a good setup client so it should be okay if your visitors aare 50% stupid atleast
