    I got some site, that ranks for a ton of very competitive search terms in the military niche. Imagine sth like "us infantry basic training" or like (keeping feet warm in winter training) and stuff... domain name is even a made of a combination of some military sub devision. never got an C&D letters..

    "Somehow", that site ranks, though I have never touched it in years :( welll, I got quoted in different forums and quora / yahoo answer style high DA/DR sites cause of good content. thats's why. like the rare 1/100 cases where the bullshit "write great content" lie was true..

    Though it gets 3k organic visits / month, it aint making much...

    It's mostly "info keywords", so not really any buying intent behind them, compaired to my other affiiliate sites that pay my health insurance ;)

    So, I want to pave that site with everything I can put on ...
    Honestly, I really dont care what. Even some Pop Ups would be good..

    I already got:

    *4 Adsense Ads
    *selling frontpage links on monthly base
    *some Amazon Affiliate stuff like socks and and knifes and foot balm (they really buy that stuff..)

    Planning to pop some 33 questions answered style ebook on that too. for the usual 7$ ;) ..

    Bullet proof vests, armor plates, military memorabilia, military collectable coins: I use stuff like that on a site currently. Sure, I may only sell 6 vests a year, but at $57 per vest affiliate payout, it isn't bad.

    What platform are you going to use to sell the e-book? I have been interested in doing something similar myself.
