    i run a community for team fortress 2 custom mapping and mods. http://tf2maps.net

    dont really have a set price. offer me what you think is fair and ill let you know.
    the site gets about 172,000 uniques a month with over 745,000 page views a month.

    we do have a few links from the official game developers website.

    and I bet with all those uniques/pageviews, you are making something like 500 bucks a month from the site. AD based sites sure suck at making money :(

    $500 a month :rofl:

    in ad revenue it makes shit. maybe $50 a month. the paid subscriptions do bring in enough to pay for the webserver + 2 game servers and then some.
    didnt really start the site to make ad revenue, more of a hobby of mine.

    I don't have any banners or anything so it'd just be a 3 word text link. Not sure what to offer:dunno:

    What kind of site do you have browning? I might be up for some exchanges if you want. I have a few "game" related sites though they probably don't get any traffic or have any PR right now.

    Saw the thread about the game and was curious but never did check it out. Is it like a modified monopoly game?

    I have a couple flash game sites that I could link with as well...though not sure if those get any traffic either lol.

    what?! so it's based on real maps and such. Buy as in in-game cash or pay to own them? Sounds pretty crazy...maybe I should actually read up on it lol.

    Pretty crazy. Just checked it out. Could be huge so good idea on the forum. Maybe put a blog on the homepage with tips and game news and such that will help direct people into the forum while also getting some search traffic.

    failed at the blog or the site in general? Shouldn't be all that hard making it look similar. Doesn't have to match exactly anyway ;). Just something to start dropping keyword content on to get more search traffic.
