    Hi all,

    Our website Botchweed now has an Alexa rank of about 100k and is having 5k traffic a day. We're a site about all the latest gaming news, and we're just looking for a way to monetize the site to push it forward, affiliate links don't seem to cut it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    create a few game review and trial download with your bigfish games affiliate, it pays good. Add adsense if you had decent content (no wrz or distributing illegal software) add a special page name it something like "store" from amazon affiliate astore, and review some game product available in clickbank probably can convert into some sales etc. "rent advertising spot with buysellads is a good option considering your traffic. If you really had 5k uv a day it should be a decent site and has a great potential, to make the most of it just be creative. Good luck

    Had Adsense up for a while, didn't make much from it at all, so didn't see the point in having an ad up that wasn't really generating anything.

    We only have a few hundred members right now. It's not like we're some kind of illegitimate site, we're 100% legit in every aspect, and this is all genuine traffic.

    You've gotten some great suggestions here, I'd highly advise implementing some of Zebra's ideas. The traffic is already there for you, you've just got to monetize it better. Keep a good bias in your reviews and be sure to point out both the good and the bad of the affiliate product you're trying to sell. How did you generate that much traffic in the first place? Just posting articles, vids, and the like? Original content? I know gaming is a great niche, but getting 5k unique hits a day is pretty awesome.
