    Hello everyone and I hope you're doing well today. So, earlier today I picked up a PR2 "Disney Tickets" related domain and wanted to get some input from those here on what I should do. I was wondering if I should turn this into an informational (articles/content) site and monetize it with AdSense or if I should set up an affiliate site?

    The reason I'm undecided on how I should monetize it is because it's a lot easier to get clicks on the ads then it is to get someone to purchase a vacation.

    I'm willing to go either way but as I mentioned I wanted to get some input and advice from those here. Thanks and I appreciate any input or thought on which direction I should go with this site.

    Do you have any traffic stats or anything like that? I guess I'd try figure out what would be more profitable in the long run. To me, sacrificing a few Adsense clicks in order to make one big sale, is worth it every time.

    No, I currently do not have any traffic stats. It was a dropped domain that I picked up and as of now that's all I have. I have no prior history of its traffic or earnings. At this point I'm just concerned with whether an AdSense or an Affiliate site would be more profitable.

    Alot depends on how targeted the traffic itself is. How do you plan to get traffic, from SEO I presume? If the keywords you target are very specific to your site then affiliate marketing would be the way to go. Otherwise if the traffic is generally untargeted then I'd go with Adsense.

    while deciding what to do , I'd stick up a white label hotelscombined affiliate site. Set the page to default to wherever disney is (florida isn't it). It'll take about 10 minutes to do.

    I've got a couple of those that I hardly ever do anything to and that rank no-where that still dribble in more than enough $$$ to pay for themselves.

    Thanks PartyMarty4870 for the input and yes, Disney is located in Florida and California. That's a good idea but I think I'd rather do a content based article site targeting each of the 300+ keywords I have to target and then just create an affiliate page on the site that they can be directed to from the article(s). I guess I could always implement both the Affiliate platform on to the site along with AdSense. I checked the referral program that Disney offers and it's only 3% which isn't that much which is why I'm leaning towards AdSense now.
