I have a pretty good domain name for my favorite NFL team. I have considered starting a news/blog site devoted to the team. I am not looking to get rich as it is a passion, but justify my time and effort with a little extra $.
I have did some minimal research and it seems many of them get a lot of traffic, but dont show a lot of adsense earnings. Most who run similar sites seem to run adsense some Amazon and a TeamFanShop affiliate store for monitizing.
I have a lot to learn about internet marketing so I may just not understand how to read the site info. There is a baseball site marketed to Detroit Tiger fans for sell on sitepoint and it claims 1000 visitors per month with $45 monthly revenue. That seems low.
Does anyone have any insite into this? I suspect if I start this project it will require constant content updating, etc.
BTW, the team is the Steelers so popularity wont be a problem, competition might.
