    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for some advice on how to better monetize the traffic to my wordpress powered web site, its not a blog in any real sense, I used wordpress as a CMS basically.

    Currently I am using Adsense for my advertising as I have not found anything better, while adsense is reliable on the money I am making, somehow I feel its not enough....making about 10-12 bucks a day, with a high of 22ish.

    I am getting roughly 2-5k unique daily that is driven mainly as referrals from major MMO web sites. Basically, the person wants to download MMO or game file X and the producers of the game list us as a place to download file X.

    All downloads are completely legal, web site is completely whitehat, etc.

    My CTR is quite high I do believe 2-3%, but my eCPM is somewhere between .50-2.50 - which is where my complaint lies.

    My web site is basically a gamers community where we mainly provide downloads (they are the chief traffic producer) as well as news, reviews, etc.

    Very much like www(DOT)gamershell(DOT)com - They are more or less our biggest competitor in terms of the goal I have in mind.

    I believe my ad layout is good, not too ad ridiculous, its just my CPC seems to be terrible.

    Thanks guys!

    The provided example should cover everything, we do basically what they do but better - In the sense we are more community oriented & have built better relations with the producers.

    As far as standalone, I am not sure what you mean?
