What would you do if you had a video game discussion forum (vBulletin) that brought in 5000 actual visitors a day ? (and about 5 times as many page views )

It only makes me about $6 a day currently. from Google Adsense / BurstMedia.

We have about 20,000 registrations. (confirmed emails) But I don't think I could sell them off...i'm pretty loyal to my members. Not even sure how much I could make if I did that anyway.

But what else would you do if it were your forums ? I already tried using GameStop as an affiliate, but nobody ever bought any games..

any advice is much appreciated.

I feel like with this many visitors a day, it should be making more.

Good luck, games + forum is a bad combination for making money. There's little you can do, if anything.

- Work with manufacturer's of video games to see if they would sponsor your site.
- Work with manufacturer's to see if they would give you exclusive news of a new release, take pre-orders for new games...

Just throwing ideas out there..
