How to Monetize 5k Visitors Per Day

by lilrut 7 replies
I have a website that specializes in Game Rules. It receives on average 5000 visitors per day with keyword traffic related to the specific rules individuals are searching for. I currently am monetized with adsense, which is earning~$500 per month, and Amazon Affiliate, which earns 2-3$ per month, except in Nov-Dec when it earns about $50-100.

My question is, how can I make more money out of this traffic? I feel like it could be earning more, but I don't even know where to begin. The site was something I created and grew myself, but it was always just a small side project unrelated to my day to day work life. That is, I don't have a lot of knowledge about IM except for what I learned about Adsense creating this site.

If it was your site, what would you do to try and monetize the traffic further?

    1. Add an optin form to get subscribers.
    2. Email them on weekly basis with ads about games either from CPA networks or from other sources.
    3. Sell ad space to sites with games.
    4. Increase the number of my visitors, by getting traffic from paid sources (FB ads, Twitter, etc.)

      You summed it up real good

      However I want to emphasize the first thing build an email list and you will OWN traffic that you can send anywhere.

    You can try buysellads to find advertisers for your traffic or you can try a ad network like Tribaladnetwork.

    That is a pretty good amount of traffic and you could definitely increase your earnings from the site. I would build and email list, join some large affiliate networks and start promoting offers every week.

  • Site niche is very good. You can search on Google, affiliates related to game. There are many such companies who offer $5 to $10 per click. You can also find such keywords related to website which has high cpc and try to get rank with google content. You will be getting high CPC in adsense too. You can earn here double or tripple.

    You can sell banner space ad too, for monthly or yearly subscription. How about that
