    How to monetize a ~10 years old domain targeted to the news niche?

    The domain has not many backlinks as far as I know.. less than 100.

    How can I monetize it?

    Thanks

    Same way you monetize everything else, just because a domain is 10years old doesn't make it instantly valuable.

    Set up an autoblog - WPRobot f.e., fetch news articels and let it slowly grow.
    Seed links carefully after the penguin update. Congruent links in forums and high pr blogs must work.
    Set up adsense and watch the money coming in, because G. loves old domains!

    That shouldn't work in these days, maybe 2 - 3 years back. Haven't you heard that duplicate content simply doesn't work?

    It works 'til today

    And in my experience an old domain has more 'authority' (if it wasn't burned) to G. than a new one. So OP has nothing to lose other then burning his domain itself by stinky links. On the other hand, he will in any way get more experienced.

    Anyway with a domain which has more power than the domain with the original content, you can easy outrank it.

    So much to say about duplicate content 'problems'.

    Have fun!
