So when I wanted to get into internet marketing a year or two back I started a gaming blog. I enjoy the topic and have had lots of fun making content. But I cant just do it for fun, I still need the hopes of making money from it to make it really worth it. My current traffic is still pretty worthless but I could still improve that by making a lot more quality content and doing other things.
But my question is, is gaming just too saturated to have any potential. I know I can never compete with the big names like PcGamer and stuff. But do I really need to? Gaming is so big that even if I could get a very small % of the runoff I could still get decent traffic. My goal was to get traffic from google and have people bump into my affiliate links while browsing the site. In my sites life I have got 1 singular affiliate sale lol. But once again, there could be a lot of improvement if I put in the effort.
So I'm not sure if I should just cut my losses and move on now, or if theres still a lot of potential and I should just put in the effort. I just dont want to dump tons more time and effort into my gaming site if it is just a lost cause and if I knew more about SEO and internet marketing when I started it I probobly would have picked a easier niche.
