    #1 - Yes ofc. You can monetise any kind of project so write about something you are passionate about.
    #2 - depends on the search volumes and traffic you will generate.
    #3 - Yes again but it's not going to be a quick moneymaker

    1- sell decorated and special chess boards from amazon
    2- write an ebook and sell it
    3- put adsense ads
    4- find chess teachers in you area and sell them your leads
    5- start your own chess class for kids maybe and generate your clients from your project

    took me 17 seconds to come up with this list, good luck

    for PPS you should check on Clickbank if they have books,amazon also.
    For CPA- build your site, contact your AM and show him the site ask for his opinion.

    FOCUS MAN!
    Start with building your website first, do it right, white and valuable. "IF you'll build it- they will come"

    you could also start a youtube channel and do tutorials for beginners, show strategies etc.
    There is a website called " Google " if you type in " chess affiliate programs " you'll get About 399,000 results (0.44 seconds)
    Why don't people on here use Google anymore?

    hey, OP what happened with the chess project, any progress so far? I am also running a chess related website- it offers coaching. We have some strong Grand Masters as coaches, but it is in the beginning, so will see how it will go...

    You can in fact make money from any keywords from the search engine. The simplest form of making money online would be to place PPC ads like Adsense onto your blog, and every click would pay you some money. If you are able to target USA traffic, that will be premium traffic and commands the highest pay for every click generated.

    My advice is to start with KP to KP4 and aim to occupy KP5.

    Blogging is good but you need to write engaging content related to chess as only then people go through and you will really start earning something for you. And with time, you can get the great amount.

    btw when you mentioned blogging chess24.com is doing a great job last few years when it comes to content creating, broadcasting live events & commentary etc.. They are really killing it in terms of traffic too, so they can be used as a nice source of inspiration for you OP (and for me too ;d).
