    Ok, I'm in the very beginning of Internet Marketing, and a friend of mine told me that god and religion related topics will always get huge traffic.

    So I bought this domain out of the blue before someone else did.

    Now the question is, can this domain name make me money? (if so, how?)

    I bought it real cheap through yahoo domains $1.99 first year, but I did not buy hosting space, I intend to redirect it through some blog.

    Can anyone here give me advise as to what potential does this domain have, and how can I start monetizing it real quick?

    Thank you

    What do you mean "quick tricks?"

    I'm really new, please don't flame me, just looking for advice on how to monetize.

    I choose this domain because it sort of has a "shocking" title godisdead.com seemed a little bit to agressive (and it was already taken)

    godisover.com is very subjective and it is not offensive, at least in my opinion.

    but anyway, how can I start making some money with it as quickly and safely as possible, please advise.

    Thank you.

    Nice DN, personally I wouldn't go religious on this one, I would use it as a travel portal website (aka go discover)

    Can you please be clearer on what you mean?

    I want to consider all options here, is there any specific reason why you advise not to go religious with it?

    If I decide to go religious, what options to I have?

    I think he means that godisover is deceptively close to godiscover, and that you should go for a travel type site instead of going religious on it.

    To be honest when I first saw it I read godiscover as well. I didn't relaize it said godisover, after reading it.

    Perhap you can promote discover card affiliate? I'm sure you'll think of something. I do agree that perhaps going the god/anti god route is probably not the best. I do know there is lots of money in god not sure about god being over.

    there is virtually millions of atheists and anti religious people online, and this friend of mine forced upon me the idea that this people are among the great number of people online.

    and there is not that much sites about atheism online.

    godisover seems like a catchy name for atheists, at least that's what I think.

    but then again, if you guys say I will monetize better with this travel thing, I will take a look into it.

    just give me some advice on where to start

    Thank you

    well, actually forum didn't crossed my mind, I was thinking more like a news blog, pretty much like this one universetoday.com

    this is a rather simple blog with a catchy title and it's ranked in the top 25.000 of Alexa, how much do you estimate the owner of that blog is making?

    Anyway, wouldn't I need hosting to make a forum?

    Any domain can have any amount of potential, it's about how you use it. Personally, I would suggest having a plan before buying a domain. Usually you're going to have a lot more success with a site if you plan the site out and then get a domain to fit it. Anyone can find a good domain on just about anything, but it's what you do with it that matters.

    Good luck with whatever you do though.

    how does someone with such a simple blog and domain name (universetoday.com)
    gets to the top 25.000 of alexa?

    what methods can I use in my own domain to the same effect?

    Thinking a bit outside the box you can turn this domain into a political statement. Since O'Drama and his cronies in CT are attacking religion and the U.S. is no longer a "christian" oriented country -- this could garner a lot of traffic from those who beg to differ with this thinking.

    A forum/blog updating members on what religions are being attacked and how they're being attacked by our government should create a frenzy of activity. People are always wanting to express their opinions.

    Have news feeds on the topics of religion and attack by government on it and allow for comments, etc... Post a video on the Internet on the latest government attack on religion here in the U.S., get a few squiddo lens out there and go viral.

    Now to monetize the site. Actually this is easier than you might think. Check in with your local talk show radio stations and see who the sponsors are. You might be surprised at who sponsors these talk shows -- especially the ones like Hannity and others. Monetize your site with the same sponsors.

    Hope this helps...

    You're gooing about it the wrong way round. List ideas, research the hell out of them and pick one. Research the hell out of related keywords and decide on the ones you can win with. Buy a domain with a few said keywords in it.

    As a complete beginner you are probably in the wrong forum. I would recommend you search for grizz's blog "how to make money for beginners" and read everything on it.

    Very smart. Also vblog about the topic on youtube. You might be able to get on talk radio, get on fox, and make some coin.

    godisover is a good misspelling of godiscover (that's what i've read at first, like some other people from here), so you can monetize it from a travel angle, and get a different domain for religion blog that you want.
