    Over a month ago I set up an autoblog (video gaming related) and it's getting now steady amount of visitors per day (nearly 400), but my adsense earnings are really low / none SO I was wondering maybe I could offer some banner space for advertisers. So does anyone know what kind of (if any) good paying advertisers there is that could possibly be interested to place an ad to my blog?

    thanks.

    Try refreshing the Adsense ads and look see what comes up and make a note of them. without clicking on your ads go to the websites you noted and see if they have affiliate programs.

    Thats gives you an idea of what you could possibly promote.

    I have promoted it all over the places: stumbleupon, digg, reddit, mixx, twitter, etc. and built couple of thousand backlinks.

    yes find affiliate programs and ask if they want an ad on your site for like $10-15 per month
    get around 5 advertisers and theres 50 per month doing nothing much

    My two pence is that these figures might be a teenie bit low for advertisors....

    You have some options

    1/ Contact affiliate programmes for sure, let the experts sell something using your site and split it with them. Again they are only interested in HIGH figs.

    2/ See if you can use the traffic and run a test campaign and send that to your top 10 companies. Again smaller companies that relate,

    3/ Hook up with some Ebay sellers or some smaller sellers of titles which will allow them to place a rolling banner which takes the user straight to the buy page... IE Get COD5 in 3 clicks for £24

    4/ Ask a medium sized magazine, or a games seller company if they mind you setting up your own sales channel for them and would they mind you having a slice of each sale.

    5/ Focus on setting up deals as blags for things, free content for you, memberships to things etc etc etc Whilst this is not DIRECT money... lets say you managed to get a games house to send you promos or pre release compies for review, or even proper copies of the game with the art work... you can then sell that on Ebay and there is your revenue right there.... So imaging you have say 10 new games coming in a month from one company say Electronic Arts.... you can either save yourself the cost of playing and buying them, or help someone buy selling them on ebay CAREFULLY!!!!!! Naughty but fair and reasonable in Leui of advertising revenue.

    400 a day gets you nice lots of blags not so much money.

    We have a site that is for Radio people. We get about 60k uniques a month. There are very many equipment companies who wont touch us.. even though we reach 10 times the amount of people that a magazine they advertise in with!!!!

    So expect some apathy, 400 uniques a day is F brilliant but its not conjustive for monetisation just yet... unless you think in new ways with new ideas.
