    Which is 89,000~ Alexa, gets about 2k a day, but ranges from 1k-10k daily, mainly referring sites, but about 500ish daily from Google, give or take.

    It's a gaming news site, don't mind people knowing it, as it's my industry and I know it inside and out, and we have like 20 new posts a day content wise.

    My problem is, I have 0 clue how to monetize it properly. We're getting ~$100 a month from advertising, but that's it. Simple PublisherAdNetworks ads.

    Anyone have any better suggestions on how to monetize it. We've got a newsletter with about 400 subscribers, and forum with about 200 active members, but i'm really not sure how to boost this right now. I have a lot of very high end goals for the site, and some awesome money making ideas for it, but they cost a lot to get to, so for now we need a stop gap to keep us ticking over.

    Thoughts?

    TL;DR, help me monetize my site.

    I would try a few things until I found something that works. Obviously depends on the actual gaming niche but are there clickbank products related to it, is there any related hardware you can sell through Amazon? Could you write an instructive ebook or get one written.
    I would say one thing you definitely want to do is build up that list a bit more.

    Apply to a CPA network and find a e-mail submit offer(i have found many offers for free black ops, or oher games ) , put an ad on your site with the cpa offer and wait for the money to come :You_Rock_

    You can try simple "free xbox, PS3 & nitendo email/zip submits" CPA offers. This converts like CRAZY as your visitors are highly targeted and the traffic you are getting is good.
