    You could use a content locking gateway to monetize cheat codes?
    Sell banner space.
    Promote affiliate offers through banners that are targeted to your audience.

    Promote some sort of ebook related to cheats? There's tons of Xbox hacking ebooks on clickbank.

      I would use banners for game related offers, things like MMOs should work well (evony, rift, wow) or things like gamestop giftcards, free PS3 etc.

      I wouldn't use content locking, people can get cheats for free at loads of sites so they probably aren't going to complete a survey to get them.

        Dude Peerfly is not incentive network.You can't say use Leadbolt OR Peerfly.


        Try to monetize it with Gaming related offers(EMail-ZIP submits,Gaming Tutorials etc.),I would not recommend you to use content lockers.

    Yea Game Related Freebie Email & zip submits, also electronic gadget submits, as well as online gaming offers for banner space, you could lock access to "some" or all cheats (your preference) with a gateway/content unlocker depending how you want to do it. Some download offers may work as well. I know with us since you have a gamer base you could just select gamer related offers only for your content unlocker, and try that.. create your self a nifty gamer related content unlocker widget background to go with it or something.

    I'd use adsense and test out my ad placements until I am satisfied with the CTR.

    Find some way to sell it and be done with it.

    It's not what you know, it's who you know.

    Stop thinking only about helping yourself achieve your goals, and start thinking helping others help you achieve your collective goals.

    Gotta agree with the others before me...

    Selling ad space and affiliate marketing. 200 uniques a day means 6000 uniques a month. There will be plenty of companies/marketers wanting to advertise on your site with those numbers.

    By the way...just visited your site, Walker, and I just want to make a couple of suggestions (clearly personal suggestions):

    1. The 125 X 125 banners you have under Sponsors (make all 4 of them different. Having two of the same won't make someone want to click on it any more. Maximize your potential profits).

    2. Under your I Recommend...recommend products you truly believe in. I would definitely offer affiliate products under this category. I wouldn't use CPA - not for things you recommend. Promote products you actually like - products your customers would appreciate. This is you chance to make an impression on them.

    Oh...and seriously consider signing up with an autoresponder service and start generating leads. With 200 uniques per day, you should have a pretty nice list real soon...a list you can build a relationship with an ultimately end up selling to indefinitely.

    Take care Walker, and best of luck to you!

    I will add once again to this thread...I agree with the above poster...start building yourself a list so you can sell to it for years to come and test multiple offers with your list.

      There are plenty of game related cpa offers out there that would thrive on a site like yours. Check your analytics to see what types of games are most popular on your site and advertise similar cpa game offers accordingly.

    I think you can apply some CPA networks and promote some gaming offers.
