    Hi guys,

    So about 5-6 months ago I bought a domain name called JewelryBomb.com and now I have no idea what to do with it. Any ideas? I had it listed on SEDO but no1 is bidding on it..

    You don't know what to do with it? Then why did you buy in the first place?
    There aren't many options. Either build a site about jewelry, or keep it parked and try to sell it.

    I have so many domains like this. it's rediculous. It's not that great a domain, so I doubt you'll be able to sell it w/o a site along with it.

    I have some sites sitting there too but I do know what to do with them. Do what you've bought it for. Parking with SEDO is not going to make any money unless you have a lot of sites parked with them

    I would agree with most people who have already replied; just toss quick jewelry site up there. Buy 10 or so articles about selecting great jewelry, how to care for jewelry, whatever. Then put some affiliate links to a jewelry site. Maybe they have some on Commission Junction, or you could do Amazon Associate links. And yea, sell it on Flippa for a few hundred.

    I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I bought a porn-related domain because I saw it was available, and rushed into buying it. I think it's a pretty good domain; I know there used to be a very popular site on it. But building a porno site is much harder than I thought, and I haven't got around to it. For the time being, it just redirects to my Adult FriendFinder affilliate link.

    Since I can't imagine too many people are searching for those exact keywords, you probably have to develop the site like a new brand. My concern would be that you might not recoup your time investment after spending hours (even with a WP site) to make a couple hundred $$.

    You can park it, or transfer the traffic, or slap adsense on it, or take the time to make an ecommerce site with affiliate products.

    The sky's the limit.
