    I have a video game site dedicated to a game that was just released 2 weeks ago..the traffic peaked at 1300 UV the day it came out but is settling around 600-800 a day now...

    Adsense only makes me $2.00-$5.00 daily because of the rediculously low CPC...

    I applied to CPA bounty but got rejected

    What else can I do?

    Try offering game downloads then lock it with a gateway using dollarade,blamads,leadbolt or your own locker.

    Well, depending on the game, you could probably still go for CPA.
    Try applying to other networks like StrongAds or Peerfly.

    You could try to join Lazy Profits. ( haven't done anything with them myself yet, but you get applied instantly if they still do that. ) Also joined CPA Infinity a few days ago, you need to get reviewed but for me it took less then 8 hours.

    Get into blam and lock some premium content related to your game. With that kind of traffic you're probably leaving a lot on the table bro.

    You can make a killing with CPA. Just "think outside of the box". Add a download link, a cheat, something that gamers will give their arm and leg for it and lock with a offer. Then see the cash flow.

    I have a couple game sites getting 1000 visitors a day, and I'm not doing anything with it. I tried CPA, but that did nothing. They are just sitting there with no ads right now. What kind of money can I make with CLP?

    What about alternating between ama zon ads for the game itself or for game consoles, at least the percentage will be better

    does your game site involves freebies? downloads? if so you can lock it with CLP. to be able to get those freebies/downloads they should finish an offer.

    Game sites go great with Amazon and CB. Just be creative. If I had 1000 UV a day I would be making $XXX/day with my eyes closed.

    I own a game site as well. You could try to monetize it with Vibrant Ads or InfoLinks. Neither pays great but it's a good way to make an extra couple bucks.

    Drop me a PM. I think I might have something that could do extremely well for your gaming site.

    Cheers

    Dont use AdSense on video sites.It just sucks.

    CPC is low and CTR is low as well.

    Get some CPA offers and content lock it.

    Someone already mentioned Amazon Affiliates, I second that. You can sell the game, guides, console stuff, or anything else related to the game.

    You also know the demographic that would play the game, so give them an "If you liked this you'll love..." then show them other related games on amazon.

    I guess it is Video games Profits Wso. Sorry to tell you, it doesn't work. You are getting good traffic only few days after game release. Then it'll slow down. We had 7 of them and sold all - too very narrow niches.
