    By some chance a company went bankrupt and they released all their domains...
    :D
    about 300 of them.

    I got hold of 5 of the best domains they had using special registration clock ( don't ask what it is)

    Now I can simply put some affiliate links and 10-20 articles and make some money but that a waste for domains...

    So What kinda business would be good for these top travel domains?

    by the way one of these domain names a monthly search of 700.000 according to G keywords tool.

    suggestions would be appreciated.

    you have just hit a goldmine!

    there are many way's you can monetize this. what i would do is a site which give's an overview of the best travel company's. put their affilate links in it + some google adsense, and you are cashing!

    If you have country tld, it seems to be important to host the domain outside country if you don't want Google only to drive traffic from your own country.

    Hi its not goldmine...unless i can find a buiness model for it.

    I already earn few grands a month from adsense and affiliates from my other websites. so i dont want to use them here.

    I am more looking into a bigger user targeted business idea.

    Imagine if i put lets say 50 articles and optmize them i may get users but it wont be more than an "article directory" like blog :D good idea for normal domains, I was thinking of running a expedia like site but that require huge work .

    Yes i got contacted by one of them but data they provide is duplicate which result in low ranking. Also it if they stop providing feeds the site will loose almost all pages :/

    i might have a couple of ideas, need to know a few more details about your domains though. if you are german-based we could probably do a jv if you are interested. hit me up via pm if you wish (you can write in german :p ).

    Build it up and offer advertising at a monthly rate, it can take time but a steady business model. Set up a forum for discussion as well, that will build up traffic to your website, discuss things like what are the best flight prices etc.
