    Hey Guys,

    I come to you today chasing a bit of help, I've had a website set up for a while now that auto posts videos from a variety of users on youtube that all share their own videos on a specific topic.
    I have an EMD (in a foreign language) and currently rank #1 for about 6 keywords with 8-12k monthly global searches each.

    What is the best way to monetize a website like this?
    Would adsense be my best bet?

    I don't think I am infringing on copyright at all, it's just uploads on youtube from users all of which know about my site and are happy to have the videos posted there, along with a few exclusive videos that are self hosted.

    Adsense is good, but you're not limited to that. Depending on niche, you can also try email marketing, affiliate marketing, CPA offers, etc.

    I believe Adsense would work great. Or else, you can also try selling banner ads directly or affiliate marketing as well.

    Adsense units jammed up close to the play buttons might be good. I don't know what the niche is... is there any products that you could be an affiliate for that would be a good match for the audience? If you have really diverse traffic this might be hard though. Split testing is probably in order if you go that route. Videos are a great format for reviewing something though so if your audience cares about it then that could work out well with an affiliate link below or in the video.
