    I have a website where I can get a few hundred visitors daily because they desperately want what I have. I used to monetize my site with a content gateway....

    This worked well for a few months but slowly but surly I have seen my earnings decrease since then. The CPA companies shave so disgustingly bad that I now have to monetize my site with something else.

    What else can I do that will make me some decent coin with highly targeted, hungry traffic?

    Use the same site that made you money with CPA to sell backlinks, if the site has a decent PR.

    Don't use leadbolt or any CPA gateway.

    I'd use BHCB with rotating offers + cparedirect.

    Well, if it was making $100 a day and the earnings are somewhat close to that you can probably sell it for a good amount on Flippa.

    That's if you want to sell it and run. Maybe start something new.

    First try a different but comparable content blocker program. Shaving happens, but I've never in my life seen or heard of a pattern of steady traffic being met with an increased amount of shaving. They keep the amount even so you don't even think about it as far as I know.

    Has your traffic itself decreased or has it stayed steady and your conversions have fallen? Are the offers on the content blockers just paying less CPA now? Are they just shittier offers?

    Honestly if you've got enough organic traffic that's really targeted and could make a few hundred a day on content blockers, require them to sign up for an email list instead. That's got to be a few hundred potential subscribers a day. All the CPA companies are doing is paying per email in hopes that they can make more money mailing them over and over and they're not even doing targeted mailing. You will absolutely make more if you start a list. Save content blockers for when you've got lots of broadly targeted traffic where it's not worth it building a list.

    Use BHCB with CPA offers or use a free content gateway (yes there is one, actually better than BHCB). This way you'll have a great EPC for offers and the advertisers won't be losing money. Win-win.

    Adbrite? They pay you like 10 dollars for 150k UVs...That's insane. No way you can even touch 100 dollars again with that.

    Look towards something like LoudMo - Not using them specifically since they shave the bum out of you.

    use bhcb should be the best choice, then you will have heaps of offers you can run, and they will pay much more than those content gateway networks.
