    i have a website based on portable gaming (i use disqus and chatrooms ect) i am waiting till my website is 6 months old so that i can get accepted to google adsense. so far i am using clickbank and have made 4 sales with gaming affiliates.

    Try having some kind of way to enter in downloads. Maybe download this game trailer here, or something of that sort.

    Have you thought of creating a youtube channel as well? To further diversify your income stream.

    I have a youtube channel, i uploaded 5 videos the most i have is 30 page views. i know you can invest in having a lot more page views, there is really no real way to increase your views just by leaving the video by itself.

    CPA would convert way better then a CB sale. Try to get own unique content and Content Lock it as well

    what about making a list , something about games, make a freebie on how to flash XBOX or some games cheat codes... then give it for free and catch emails, after start doing email marketing, it's gonna take some time but good way to get money

    It depends on what you want to do with the gaming site. I currently monetize mine with epicgameads and it works great. I only recently found a video network that will payout a decent CPM for the videos on my site as well. Since this IS gamer traffic the content would have to be amazing in order for CPA or PPD to work correctly. In short unless your site is setup with psychology and executes it correctly and on time then you won't make money. The game industry comes down to whether or not your site satisfies their cravings or just simply pushes "games" at them.

    What works for me might not work for you. So if you are hell bent on CPA then go ahead and test things out until you find the right fit for your audience. My audience is diverse enough that even using Chitika ads I was able to pull in 4 digits. It all just depends on your setup and how you present and execute timed events through it.

    You made a 4-figure income from Chitika off of one website? That's pretty sweet. How much traffic do you have going to the site if you don't mind sharing?

    EDIT: By the way, do you mean 4-figures per month or 4-figures total?
