    I have some pretty good Ipad related domains and was trying to think of a way of monetizing them.

    The Ipad was launched by Apple a few days ago and is rumored to be become bigger than the ipod.

    Should I be doing something with these domains now to look like some authority site?

    Any advice appreciated.

    I have a tech web, and I dont think it's that big of a deal. I mean from what I've seen it's just a trend!

    I thought the Ipad was the next bing thing from apple. I might be wrong but should I be doing something with these domains anyway?

    They say demand is going to outstrip supply from April 2010 to January 2011. So I don't think I will be able to set up an affiliate deal with a supplier.

    Still after ideas..

    Wouldnt it be a trademark violation to have 'IPAD' in a domain name?

    Just picked myself up off the floor.

    Ok so Apples hype might not come true but they will sell millions and I think there is an opportunity here.

    iPad is a big thing but no chance it will be so popular as iPhone is.
    Phone has almost everyone. You can get it for 'free' with your contract etc. That is another toy for geeks (like me;D)

    I am putting up a site today with adsense, my amazon store related to apple products and a email/ name capture for people waiting to hear more about release. I will stick a couple of CJ banner ads on there too.

    I am also writing a few articles ready to SENuke and maybe some video.

    Anyone got any more ideas?

    I will let you know the domain I am using for this test soon.

    what domains do you have?

    I might be interested in buying them.

    Also, my company sells insurance for the ipad. I can pay you 25% commission on all sales. Which is anywhere from about 10 to 20 dollars each.

    Definitely keep them and monetize them. You have a lot of good affiliate possibilities. Personally, if they are good names I wouldn't suggest selling them for at least another yet.

    What are your domain names like.

    if it is good.
    contact sites that sell Ipads.
    They will pay you at least $1k to get the domains.
    Target big players.

    For example, i am willing to buy domains that are related to my niche.
    But rarely get people who is willing to sell. :(

    After all, google pays ALOT of attention to DOMAIN NAME.

    The iPad is big, but the HP Slate is going to be even bigger. Before people buy either one, they're first going to want to compare the two devices. They're going to head to Google and search for "ipad vs hp slate", and I just happen to have the perfect domain + site!

    Edit: Put it up for sale and got a $650 offer by the way. So yes, get on the train quickly and you might make some cash.

    And one is at #1 also with 2 million competing

    Any suggestions?
