    Hi guys,

    i just found a availabe EMD with 8800 monthly local USA searches. the CPC is 1.4$. I checked the difficulty rating with traffic travis and it told me it was Easy to rank. The EMD is a trademark though (a type of running shoe to be specific). I need some advice on how to monetize this. Currently I only have AdSense.

    Setup an automated blog with relevant content or manually spin relevant content and make sure you update it frequently.

    see if you can sell the shoes either as an Amazon associate, Ebay or Commission Junction affiliate

    I would do CPA as well. Amazon and eBay are very good for this kind of KW.
    To fill an autoblog, I usually create a google alert as rss feed and use wp-o-matic plugin with regex to get rid of the google links in the alert feed. actually I create a whole bunch of google alerts.

    Yeah those all sound like great ideas. Is the risk big of getting caught by the trademark owners? For example if the shoe was a reebok shoe and my emd was reebokxxx.com and it was ranked first page and/or higher than the actual reebok shoe?

    They probably would send you a cease and desist letter, best put some legal jargon on your website that you are in no way affiliated with Reebok etc.... and that you simply are a reseller of their fine products. They are less likely to bother you in that case.

    Here are some things that I would do:

    1. Make sure that the EMD does not in any way make it look like that you're affiliated with "reebok". So something like reebokrunningshoesblog.com can be a problem. On the other hand, something like reebokrunningshoesreview.com is better. I'm not saying that you're on the clear. I'm just saying that it's better.

    2. Put a DMCA notice.

    3. Put a disclaimer saying that you're not affiliated with Reebok.

    But even with all those things, they can still end you a C&D. But if you're going to do it, at least cover your ass legally.
