    Does anyone know how I could make money by providing free games? I just got a great EMD domain name with 45k exact monthly hits which is related to free games...

    But as it's free, kids related (below 12), how could I make $ with this?

    I've researched other kid gaming sites and most use adesense. Place it with the game before they play or if you want to have it without force feeding the ad, have it in the corner of each page. Usually they have ads related to the games.

    Why don't you see if your traffic converts and go to IQU and search their cpa offers that convert for the type of traffic you have. So unimaginative are the minds of the people on this forum. You can think up 1,000 ways to at least get $5 a month and scale up. Have you even tried to also make your own flash game or promote your website via Google Adwords? If not, then the content is worthless and won't convert.

    It would take 5-9 months of hard work to get good enough to make your own games, with literally millions of tutorials on the internet about how to make a flash game, animation, design. Connect it to a site or forum where people could "play games for cash". Too many ideas, too little time? I just gave you, go implement it.

    Start out with CPA first. Content lock the game when they click on it or even better, content lock it in the middle of a game; like after 2 minutes of playing, a content locker suddenly appears. Believe me, kids will do anything including surveys to play games.

    no they won't , the surveys are Hard, it's not just some form of write your name and press continue !

    your only chance is adsense and Kids click on links because it's easy, any other method is useless . kids can't buy !
    and if you are thinking they would ask their parents to buy it ,you are wrong !

    Good luck, I used to have a game site with killer traffic, that I could never make a dime off. Maybe if you put coupons on your site for like 25% off crayons, you might do ok lol.

    Isn't most surveys age limited to 18? My knowledge about CPA is not deep, but at least all my local offers are 18+

    You can provide some games to your sites along with some relative ads that you give you the opportunity to earn a handsome money if it works properly.
    You can not do anything stupid here.
    Otherwise you will be kicked.

    Your best luck is adsense, kids under 12 wont complete a survey nor do they have money to buy stuff. Lets just hope you get enough clicks

    What gave you the idea that you can make money from kids below 12? Think logically next time, visitors are humans and not machines.

    I think with kids games the only ways to monetize is from Impressions or PAy per click programs. Therei is also "in game advertising" MOchi, INtergy I think. But you'll need a very good traffic.
