    Hi guys,

    I recently got given a domain that was originally registered in 2001, and it's just sitting there. It's a movie website, no particular movie genre, and I was wondering how you guys would make money from it? I'm a web dev so building something unique wouldn't be hard - but I'm just wondering is affiliate marketing the ONLY way?

    Thanks

    sell the domain if you want to make quick bucks and don't have much experience and investment to spend on seo.

    Hi MafiaBoss,

    I work at an SEO company so I'm pretty educated there

    The movie niche is very hard to rank for as the big keywords are heavily monitored like the payday loan niche. If you have a good domain, I would try sell it instead.

    Content locker illegal torrents for movies with affiliate sign ups, CPA etc.

    Then rank for long tails, and new film launches.

    I think a lot of people use Youtube videos to drive traffic to these sorts of sites, Video title: Download THIS NEW FILM Online For Free, Description has url etc.

    I think best option for you to sell damin of your website. Otherwise you can work SEO for your website. It will help you to get more traffic.
