    I have a couple video game sites bringing in a about 1500 uniques a day.
    Gamespot rejected my app for affiliate program. I don't want to use adsense.

    Any other ideas for income? I've been building a mailing list, but that's it.
    Really annoyed gamespot wouldn't accept me. It's 100% white hat.

    I'm putting this post here so I can look back when I start my next project to find you for contact because I think we could work well together with some of the domains I'm acquiring.

    CPA - I'm sure there are many good cpa offers for video game sites. are your sites for specific video games or they are just general video game sites? there are probably other video game affiliate programs. amazon could possibly work for you. i hope this helps! also, are you talking about gamestop?

    It's a specific game.
    I've never done CPA, where can I look for these?
    Ooo gamefly looks nice.
    I'd like something that I could get comission for the actual game selling too.
    Amazon's 4% is a little discouraging though.
    Thanks.

    maybe find some cpa companies that have the gamefly offers, instead of directly going to gamefly

    You could advertise a CPA WoW guide, sign up to playasia affiliate program or Amazon.

    Look for a clickbank guide to whatever game your site is about and advertise that to your members. Look for a low priced guide and you should get lots of conversions
