    I have bought a .news domain when they were released few years ago..

    It is getting some decent hits every month but haven't really used it..

    What kind of site should I make ?

    Tips are welcome.

    With a .news why not use a tech niche? Like "realhacker.news" or something like that. I'm sure you could get decent earnings like that.

    It depends on what the domain you bought is.
    If it was football.news then write about football.
    Tech.news, then write about technology stuff.

    It depends on how narrow or broad the potential is within the name you registered.

    Llamas.
    Write about news related to llamas, and you should find good rankings easily.

    I am serious, I can't find a llama news site, you'll be #1!

    But otherwise, when doing a news site, you really have a few options. Content curation, where you gather news from other sites, blurb it and discuss, "breaking" news you wrote yourself, news aggregator where you just auto-post news from a variety of sources, releases(like breaking news but you cover things coming out, like iPhone 15 or Android milky-chewy-center: if you can't tell, I'm not big into tech).
    Really in a news niche, just pick what interests you, or what repulses you(I do that with a trump site and troll the comments on my Facebook:great for generating more comments/views).
