    Okay so I saw a commercial last month for a popular tv show that premiers in the next couple months. I immediately thought, I should see if the domain name is available. The .com was taken, of course, but the .net was not. So I registered it as, NAMEOFTVSHOW.net. Any ideas how to monetize this? I am not looking for a quick return, although it would be nice. I am looking more into the area of building a nice steady income each month off of it, but I am not expecting to be able to quit my job. I would like to hit $1,000/month within 6 months of starting to monetize it (i.e. now). Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, I purchased it one month ago and have not touched it at all, and it is already indexed in Google.

    That's what I was thinking, or just putting ads on the side so I can get recurring visitors...

    Do you know any networks that have the popup cpa thing? I have never used it before.

    Best is to use BLACKHAT CODEBREAKER, but if you newbie, signup leadbolt or another network. Check the cpa section :)

    Adscend media specifically says:

    I am going to try leadbolt. If they have the same thing, I am just going to try adsense/cpa on the sidebar and in posts.

    Don't lock every page - just lock the pages with each individual episode. I run a couple of TV show sites (for Walking Dead, etc.) and this seems to be the best way. If you lock the homepage you definitely will lose people to other sites.

    since you got the .net Im assuming they already have the .com? If so honestly just make a quick page and dnot put to much effort in it since 98% of the traffic will always go to the .com first...unless of course you outrank it!

    If you dont want to make any money listen to this guy talk (read first bold statement)

    And correct me if im wrong (which i doubt).....

    Isnt the point of what we do is try and outrank websites? So really if the goal is to outrank websites he can use his .net and be just fine.....

    Way to say a whole lotta nuttin....you get a -Rep...

    I would suggest that you watch the TV show. Start a blog and give your SEOed opinion on every single episode. If it's a good TV show, this should not be work.
    Get to know the characters. Blog about everything that comes to your mind while watching and before you know it, you will rank #1 for related search terms and then you will have the a conversation site. People will visit a lot, comment on stuff, start discussion and such. Then monetize.

    Since it is such a new show, there are a lot domains for it. I bought one that is NAMEOFSHOWtvshow.com. So if the name or the show was Barney, it would be barneytvshow.com. I setup a 301 redirect to my main .net site. I am going to build links to both sites and atm I am trying to rank for 4 keywords. It shouldn't be too hard either because there is a guy who has a domain that is NAMEOFSHOWNAMEOFNETWORK.com and only has 15 backlinks and is on the first page for a bunch of kws.

    I think that is what I am going to do. I am gonna have all of the shows available, but also write articles about everything. Thank god it is a show I am interested in lol.
