    As the title suggests I've took a chance and purchased a domain, 'freesportstreams.com.' (Don't mind the content)

    As well as this I bought anonymous hosting, a few weeks back but have had family problems and thus haven't had time to really splat out ideas.

    I bought this domain and hosting because I thought I should act, and stop reading which is what I try to do whilst I'm here. But became stuck in getting content etc.

    My question is, how would I go about monetizing this, and making it work?
    Where would I get my content from and such?

    I don't have much money and so I really want this to work.
    I've always tried to act, but maybe I've went too far this time.

    Any help is massively appreciated.
    Thank you so much.
    Duncan.

    Well for content you could either write your own (doesn't cost anything) or buy some articles (will cost >1$ / 100 words if you want at least some quality).
    While you keep adding content, try to build some backlinks from blogcomments, forums and eventually from other blogs you created free (here is a very good list for those: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-current-web2-0-blog-list-60-websites-5.html )
    But if you really read arround this forum for a while before taking action, this should sound a litte familiar to you, and can't alway be applied one to one

    Thanks very much for your swift reply.
    I think I'll have to write my own content as I don't have the money really to pay for articles.
    It just seems my situation is a little different to the others as the domain I chose at the time is obviously streaming and thus I'd have to get streams from sites and update quite a lot etc.
    I was thinking about CPA but every company I applied to I got declined unfortunately, probably because of lack of traffic :(

    Thanks for your advice man.
    Thing is OP said 'Im closing this thread for the moment, as we are not taking any new orders till the next version is released.'
    And I don't really have much money to spend on stuff like that.
    Thanks for looking though dude.

    I've checked both of those previously and maybe havnen't checked enough but I will keep going.
    I just thought that because I don't have any traffic I wouldn't get accepted.
    Thanks though, will keep going with them.

    You should really plan things out before going ahead and buying domains.

    And that's one thing I've learned out of all of this.
    Just thought I should take the plunge though and stop reading and start acting.
    Maybe I've took that a little too far :(

    Worst case scenario, in a couple of weeks you'll realize you've thrown away some bucks, not a big deal, on the other hand if things go smooth someday you'll remember this and be thankful for the extra bucks you'll be earning.
    Even in the worst case you'd be winning something, experience, which besides being one of the most important thing in life and IM sometimes is underrated...
    Anyways, I believe risks and action shall be taken for improvement, best of luck to you.

    Scrapeboss has a service on here that offers pretty good content written by native speakers. He charges $1.00/100 words. When you can start affording more, you can use something like textbroker for higher quality content (4 star) at about $2.20/100 words.

    Do a search on here for Crashed Challenge. He has a step by step spoonfed method that should really help you get started in the right direction on how to monetize your site and get traffic.

    Might be worth checking this out if you haven't already:

    Fits your domain pretty well.
