    Getting 6k uniques a day off my site now, growing way too fast for me to handle. I fucking made 87 cents off Adsense yesterday big money Imma get rich off that shit.
    Gaming niche sucks ass, need to find me some affliates or something because this shits brutal. Anyone that can give your favorite affliate or monetization would be really appreciated.

    Just out of curiousity, is it a game site or a gaming niche site? aka, are they playing a game or games on your site or reading about the game(s) on your site?

    Take a look at epicgameads for popunders and Adversal for popunders/interstitials. I've also seen several gaming niche CPA offers on Neverblue.

    What is your adsense CTR and CPC? Ad placement, type(text, image), colours etc matter A LOT.

    Take a look at any successful arcade site, they're loaded with popunders and popups

    One that people play on our review and read about Games ect.

    Basically my primary ad is 300x250 on every page it's CTR is quite nice. I also have room for a lot of other ads. My site is gaming niche site not an arcane style site. I really really don't want to content lock anything because I feel like it would be the death of my site. It would be nice to have full background advertisements going maybe some CPC idk. I'm not really in for promoting Clickbank products because my site is really niche specific and most of my users would not be interested in that sort of product. I'm thinkin about checking out his affliate called CPMStar I've heard a lot of good things about this site and I guess their rate per thousand is pretty good.

    Also on content lockers doesn't Google hate these? If I have content on the page that I'm trying to rank does this hurt search engine crawlers?

    There is a new keyword in my niche that just recently started getting traffic and no one was ranking for. As soon as I got word of this keyword I quickly made a page with correct on-page SEO and built some EDU backlinks and created a blogger with 1000+ words linking back to this page. I'ts quite easy to get traffic if you know your niche picking up new keywords is like stealing candy from a baby. Too easy.

    Hahaha putting Adsense on your site is like putting your thumb in your own ass.... you are the only one who knows about it and it makes no difference at the end of the day. Adsense has lowered their pay to "Chump Change" and after the last few updates it feels like they are the ones gaming the webmasters and not the other way around.

    Ya that is about how I feel regarding gaming sites. I've pulled tens of thousands of visitors (though never at a rate like your's) and made absolute jack. Like $10 on Adsense over a six month period.

    Most money I've made from gaming sites is by selling game guides from Clickbank (specific to game featured on site), and some of my sites rank #1-3 for pretty darn good gaming keywords.

    FWIW: I've tried content locking on one of my more popular gaming sites and it was a complete failure. Zero conversions. All it did was discourage people from using my site (which had the absolute best quality info for its niche).

    I guess my suggestion would be to start list building. Put up free guides or whatnot and harvest email addresses. You have so many UVs I figure that after a while you'd get a pretty big list, and then send them gaming stuff: Amazon and CPA and whatnot.

    You should try to look at those background ads for free online games. I'm sure you've already seen what I'm speaking of, I don't know how much it pays, but I'm sure it converts pretty well and probably pays a good amount if they monetize the game with ingame purchase.

    If you are finding it hard to monetize, have a look at some CPM banner ads, that way you are paid on the amount of impressions, get 2 or 3 o those up and you might get a few $$ per 1k visitors so should help your earnings rise until you think of another monetization method.

    You need CPA. Or at least, check out TrafficRevenue.

    I suggest you add amazon in your site like sell some games and stuff. Just add some aff links after your review like the cheapest etc etc i found on the net + link to amazon, and put some double adsense blocks wrap around the content. I did that to my tech review site and it works well. I observed tech/gaming niche could be monetized better with amazon rather than adsense, but thats just my opinon based on my experience.

    i agree - if your CPM is even $1 and on average your visitors view only 2 pages, and you have 3 CPM ads per page your looking at $36 a day - not bad for a site that hasn't had much investment.

    What is advertising company would give me the highest CPM? I currently have paid traffic coming (not bots). Would those be omitted?

    i have no idea, you will have to research. But you failed to mention its paid traffic - where is it from?if its junk traffic thats probably the reason you have such a low CTR

    What about OnLive or Gaikai? Don't they offer affliate programs? Would fit perfectly in your niche.
    If not, try finding webshops that offer an affliate program for games. I don't think guides would really work well. Anyone is able to use Google to find out what they need to know.
