    Hey BHW folks,
    I've made a few post now and I am working on making 20.00-50.00 / day. I'm honestly in a slump. I am producing content via my website that is quality and has a good amount of Keywords etc. I do admit I need more backlinks but I'm still stumped on how to get them without using bots. My site is now slumping because I am in a slump and I'm looking for advice. I'm trying to figure out what methods I could / should use to increase my traffic, backlinks and money making potential. What should I am for traffic wise / pageview wise to hit 20.00-50.00 / day?

    Revenue methods I use now:
    Google Adsense
    CPM Star
    Just got Taboola

    Niche: Gaming
    Subniche : Gamer Importance and Voice
    Daily Visitors: 4400+


    How do I get my foot in the door to make a dent? Please give your advice. I've read through so many articles on this site, they are starting to look the same.

    Thanks

    Without knowing more than you've said, Gaming niche is very difficult to rank in serps, so unless you are very experienced in SEO, or have lots of money, to buy backlinks, it's going to take you a long time.

    If you are already at 4k visitors a day. look for things to sell them, or hacks that you can put use cpa, for.

    Put your morals aside. With 4000+ visitors ... It's about the money.

    Very saturated I know. I've done a bit of research on it and I think I've found something that is still rare to be seen in the gaming niche. You're right as well.. morals aside. To me this is about the money because I want it to turn into a business. I have money to sink into the site and more coming. I'm looking to produce a large base site that has sub niches in gaming tech, movies / tv / media, beer and gaming etc. I'm trying to find the bare base I need to begin getting the traffic I need to go bigger. I'm also trying my best to do this without buying the traffic and going word of mouth. Maybe that's my issue.

    Gaming niche is too saturated... you'd have to let your morals slide and you could do PPD to make some money off game hacks etc which would actually convert quite well (hacks don't have to be real -- I remember reading a thread on here about this method a while ago).

    The most important piece of advice I can give you: don't give up on your vision! I had a friend that let go of a developing sports site right as it was starting to attract natural likes / comments... could've been huge but he'll never know lol

    Find a retail product and corner the market on it. You need to be where people are looking to spend money. The people who go for hacks and cheats do so because they do not want to spend any money.

    Find one product, find a supplier, and sell the piss out of them to people who are hunting for them.

    Y'all are leaving the low hanging fruit.

    I might say ppd is a better option with a gaming site. You can also try PPI and offer some free stuff :)
