    So I have a .co domain that is the name of a town local to me.

    There is not much/weak competition for the keywords. Yet I can't decide what I want to put on it.

    Autoblog?

    PhpBB?

    Any other suggestions? Willing to consider anything. I want my $30.00 back for the friggen .co domain.

    Try a local forum if it grows advertise local businesses or get local businesses to post offers on your site depending the way you build your forum you could get backing from the community if you think outside the box ;)

    I have several city/town domains and one big one in .co as well. Depends on how big the town is but first thing is contact city hall manager and try and sell the domain. If not build as a portal site and you could even sell advertising from merchants in the city if you want to branch out and make the site big. Otherwise if your to lazy to put in work on it (and thats not a diss) then just put up a 1 page lander site and say its for sale!

    Hmmm...

    Is there a portal script anywhere?

    The town is actually a neighborhood of a city with 700k people. It's really the nicest part of the city now with all the 20-30 year old yupppies.

    It also has had maybe 6 movies filmed there as it once had a really bad reputation as a tough place so they keep making gangster movies about it.

    If I did go with a Forum PHPBB would be the easiest right? I used to frequent a PHPBB forum that allowed anonymous posting..and had adsense running on it.

    Maybe that is how I'll go.
