    Welcome to BAF majorkarthik! Thank you for posting your question here.

    Do you already have any ad networks published on your site? Like Adsense or maybe Bidvertiser?
    Have you also tried to sell advertising spaces for banners on your site to generate revenue?
    If not, you could try those. With a good amount of traffic that your site is getting, you will certainly gain good offers for these type of advertisement.

    You may also want to check out our Useful Business Resources / Links to check out some useful sites that can help you.

    By the way, can you share your site's link to us so we can personally check your website and members can give more detailed suggestions for it.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum majorkarthik!

    Would any of the following suggestions work for you?

    • Selling premium templates
    • Charging for additional services e.g. template customisation, coding or installation
    • Selling advertising space on your site
    • Using ad networks, as suggested by GekiDan
    • Promoting affiliate products on your site, e.g. Template Monster's affiliate programme
    • If you design the templates yourself you could charge people to have a "Template Sponsored by...." link on some of the downloaded templates.

    Google AdSense seems to be an obvious solution. To download 1 template,I suppose you need to go through many page = pageviews. Why not? ;)

    What kind of templates are you targeting? Are they free themes for business owners? Or just free general themes.

    It depends who your visitors are will determine what will be the best method to make money from it.
