    Hello BHW,

    Maybe some of you could help me out on discovering the bigger picture with this domain.

    I have a keyword domain for a popular image sharing hashtag. On Instagram alone it has 50,000+ images with this hashtags, it is a premier hashtag and it is one that will keep being used and growing in an evergreen niche. Its a spin off of the word "selfie". Just for an example, there is the word "belfie", this is a butt selfie and here in America it is a trending hashtag.

    So in this case, lets say I own belfie.com, how would you approach this to monetize off of it?

    I was thinking I could structure it like an LOL/9Gag site and obviously scrape all pictures with this keyword, split it up with categories and post it. Unfortunately, I have heard lately that Adsense is not fond of these picture websites anymore.

    I'm open to any ideas for me to go research a bit further how to approach this. Obviously once traffic flow starts coming there, I can create, remember belfie is just an example, but I can make BELFIE challenges like "Craziest place you have done a belfie" and so on....

    Looking forward to what people have to suggest. If it happens that someone reaches out to me with an awesome idea and easy to implement, I will get in touch with you and offer a small reward.

    Thank you in advance!

    Could someone advise something for me? I was told to try the plugin Instagrabr that will create a feed of the images linked to a hashtag. So far having a few issues using it so looking for any other suggestions or how other people create websites based around a popular hashtag.
