    So I have chosen my next project, it will be for a local area directory. I used to live there, know it well and know I can create much more captivating websites than those already there, of which there are few...

    My problem is that the EMD for my local area is gone, so what suggestions do you guys have.

    Lets say, the area is: burton upon thames

    It gets 50k Global Monthly Searches of which I am targeting about 5 - 10k

    I expect to get revenue from hotel bookings, car hire, local business and of course adwords.

    This is a side project so I will not be spending all my time on it hence my annoyance at the EM being taken.

    Also, what are .info .me .cc like? Im a .com man really :/

    What do you guys think about ' - ' in the URL too? I have one website with -'s which does OK...

    Also, if anyone else has a local site they can add some experience etc I would really appreciate it.

    Also, anyone shed some light on what I should expect in terms of $$ with those stats? Its a tourist resort, very much up and coming, new building projects in the area and on the beach in a popular European town.
