    I have a gaming niche website with a .net domain. The domain has very little authority and no page rank. It gets about 1,000 UV a month coming from random places but I'm not sure the quality of the traffic.

    I'm very good at driving traffic to niche related websites but I know gaming usually performs better with google cpm rather than cpc. I'm looking for a way to optimize adsense on it currently but I'm not sure if I want to dedicate myself to writing gaming blog posts on the regular.

    Originally the owner hosted a minecraft server, then an online arcade, and now I have a basic wordpress blog on it with no posts.

    What are my options?

    Well since content is king, then thats what i would do. Start posting gaming reviews, etc ... and sign up to an affiliate program that will provide games or systems to sell to your subscribers and readers.

    You need to promote it more then monetize it.

    You can do gaming reviews and do affiliation with big gaming stores or amazon.

    Yeah, I'm going to happen to have to agree with my friends here. 1,000 unique visitors per month is practically nothing. You can't effectively monetize it in which will bring considerable or significant results to you. You're better off driving even more and more traffic and then re-evaluate which methods of monetization you can possibly implement in order for you to make some profit from this.

    1k traffic monthly is not a lot. To make money with adsense you'll need a lot of traffic. Do some SEO or find some alternative method if you really want to monetize your site.

    I had a site a few years back that had 5k hits daily and it made hardly anything on CPC. However it made I made a killing on traffic sales based ad. Buysell is what I used for sellthign the ad space. I had it on rotators and it worked pretty good.

    I have a gaming company and it has an e-shop that gets over 5k+ visitors per month. Since I live in quite a small country and do not sell out of the country, yet, it doesn't make much profit, but still something. I'd say, 1k EUR easily.

    So, what I wanted to say is that, turn your site into an e-shop and start simply reselling. Use G for the best prices and there you go.
