    Is my site worth monetizing???

    Hi people. I currently have a basic site set up dedicated to some software that I've developed. It's quite unique and the market is very niche. The software is free to download and is commonly downloaded by people who are simply after free stuff! Currently I get about 150 visitors per day and I have 300 people signed up to my forum. I've got a bit of adsense on the site and forum, but I'm not making much. Maybe just enough to cover file hosting and hosting program. With such a hit rate/sign-up, is it worth even putting the effort in to monetize this site? Could the reason it's not doing that well be because of the type of traffic, ie freeloaders? Thanks for any advice!

    The type of traffic could indeed be the reason. Anyway, as Sully said, give us the name to see it.

    I suppose that is impossible to say about that unless you try that. Then you will understand if that was good idea or not.

    It's worth a try I guess, you can always go back if it doesn't work out

    Lightbulb i think no

    parking is not a good option for such site, you'll have only domain name left and all efforts done for Website will be wasted.
    find some other ways to monetize it or sell the website as a whole (not only domain)

    You won't loose anything if you give it a try.

    You have already arrived beyond parking and have reached a stage of monetizing, going back to parking does not make any sense anymore, just try to get the ads that are more related to your downloadings

    Good luck and cheers.

    You should try to gather emails rather then directly selling to them and adsense doesn't go weill with forum kinda website so you should just focus on gathering emails and then sell affiliate stuffs that are relevant to your niche.

    Well I think that you should post your website here for feedback. If not, it is ok, then my advice is that with such figure you have mentioned above, you can totally invest in such website and remember to optimize you website to perfect user experience, besides, also focus on improving seo for your website to keep it at high rank on search engine.

    Depends on the amount of traffic you have coming into your website. If you are getting plenty then you could monetise your website to get extra revenue.
