    Hey guys,

    Have a big sports streaming site I've built up and it gets about 50k hits a month now. All organic in google. The site makes some decent money selling an ebook but I have no idea what else I can make money on with it. Seems such a waste not shoving other affiliate banners on the main page with that kinda traffic. I've tried shoving gambling affiliates on the leaderboard slot and no clicks or anything. Anyone got any good ideas on how to squeeze some extra cash out of the site? Is there a place i should be putting a banner instead or is there better affiliates to put there? Don't really wanna go down the CPM route as 90% of my traffic is new visitors!

    Nah guys sorry ill explain. I have basically just wrote an ebook on how to watch live sports etc as the law over here is sketchy over illegal linking etc. I charge £9.99 for the book and earn about £200 a week. I want to ad banners onto the site tho for an extra income. Not using content locking as i prefer cash than tweaking offers etc

    You can use a gateway that has prepopulated offers so you don't have to mess with tweaking. 200 a week with how many visitors a week? You could earn more with content locking since people don't have to pay.

    3000 visits. I'm not a big fan of content lockers. I saw the best results with MG on my other site but tbh most peeps who come to the site just seem to leave anyway so not sure if it would make a massive difference. What would be the best network for it?

    With US being what % of that 3000? Since your content is OK and doesn't infringe on copyrights i'd recommend AdscendMedia.

    If anything, you should test it. Test things that could potentially make you a better profit, or else you will never know what you are missing out on.

    80 percent of my traffic is uk. I actually noticed that MG has a cool tool that locks the file and peeps download it then open it and fill out the survey then and there. Theres no football on tomorrow so best time to test this as wouldnt have earned money anyway

    With CPA Best to test around a few networks and not just one; different networks can produce drastically different results!

    I was gonna say content locking as well with either blamads or adscend media. MG brokers offers so you probably haven't got the bang for your buck.

    I'd say put a content locker after a "click" or after some certain action taken. This way you still engage them.
