    I own and run a gaming related website (1 game, more of a fan site) that has been active for just more than 5 years now.

    While the traffic isn't what it used to be, it still generates 30,000 uniques a month and 80,000 visits. February had 75,000 visits and 535,000 page views.
    It is currently only monetized via adsense and generates between 200 and 300 dollars a month. (CTR is less than 1%)

    I'd like to increase the revenue so I am asking you folks what programs have worked well for you on gaming related websites?

    (yeah, I know, first post. I may be a lurker, but at least I'm a paying lurker)

    Thanks, I'll check it out.

    I definitely don't want to risk my PR, so I'll have to read up on it some more. It's only a pr 4, but it has been a pr 4 for years. Would hate to see it go down.

    It's for Everquest. Like I said, I've had it a long time.

    since it's video game based, maybe sign up for an affiliate program like commission junction and put up some banners for gamefly, or shopping ads for some ebay purchases...
