    Hello Blackhatters,

    I got a domain similar to 9gag. It is a VCCC .com domain name and I am sure the domain itself is valuable and can be flipped right now for a good profit. Well I was thinking of doing something with it like making it into an image hosting website or a gag/meme website and promote it via social media to generate traffic, but such traffic is good for only CPM traffic right? And how much do these companies pay? The cost of setting up the website is comparatively high and there are a high chances of failing.
    What do you people say? should I make it into a meme website or maybe an adult image hosting of some sort or something else which can give me a good return over time.
    Approximately how much time is required to touch 100$/month with such websites? I know meme websites depend on FB and Twitter traffic and it will depend upon work and traffic but any approximation?
    I don't want to just flip the domain but to actually do something with it and maybe flip it after say a year for a higher price.
    Your inputs are really appreciated :)

    Thanks

    If it works out it could be worth a TON. but the chances of it working are low...

    I tried both a meme site and an image hosting site once... they did not work out... but if you feel you can do it, go for it.

    I don't think it will actually cost that much to set up. If you're just using a wordpress theme it shouldn't cost that much at all, so you have no reason not to try.

    What about the average CPM rates for such websites?
    Also should I only depend on Social media or also do some SEO?
