    I have two domains in the movies niche - telugu-movies.net and telugu-movies-online.com, with 90-135k of exact searches each month. Should I try to monetize them or sell them? In the first case, what method should work best, and in the second case, at which price should I list them for sale?

    Off corse you should monetize them, it can bring you steady income for a long time.

    Unless if you're making 10k a day from other ventures, then you can sell these domains.

    If there is no content on those domains and no existing traffic then your domains are worth less than the $9 you paid for them.

    So your two options are really:

    A) Setup a basic site, bookmark and begin the ranking process and flip them
    B) Go all out and create real/ranking sites and geenrate $$$ with CPA/Content Locker.

    The second option seems more reasonable, but what content should I put online? Because uploading movies is not the best solution, as all are protected under the copyright laws. I saw a lot of websites with hindi, telugu and other kind of indian movies, but I think that they are not making money with Adsense or other reliable CPA, as they tend to ban such websites...:rolleyes:

    Any idea which one is a better domain to develop a website, or should I develop both? :rolleyes:

    telugu-movies.net is not an exact match really, There's a hyphen.

    If it was telugumovies.net then it would have been an "EXACT" match.

    telugu-movies.net is only as good as 123telugumovies.com which is worth $9

    Just sayin.

    Regarding flipping it, I doubt anyone would buy it for more than $100 if the site is undeveloped.

    The advertiser competition is extremely low because its entertainment niche. I have 20+ sites in that niche (Indian Celebrities + movies) and the AVG CPC is like 2-3 cents.
