Use this domain for a free giveaway/listbuilding, or build out an authority site?

6 replies
I have a pretty sweet EMD that I picked up back in 2009. It's for an abs-related phrase(as in six pack abs) that gets around 15000 exact local monthy searches. I had initially thought about building it out into an authority content site, but since all of the updates and unpredictability of rankings, I've been holding off.

A couple of people have recommended that I put a free report on the site and just use it as the front end to a funnel for listbuilding. Others recommend that I go ahead and build it out into an authority for generating high amounts of traffic from the search engine. I'm at a bit of a standstill with my indecision.

What should I do with it?

    You could always start out with your option one-giveaway/listbuilding, while working on building it out as an authority site...

    I suggest to put a optin to generate some leads,list is long term profit.
    Also you can sell the ad spot or ad some cpa offer(s).

    If you put up a list building page quickly, you can build a giant list while strategizing/planning your authority site. But, no matter what, you should do SOMETHING... 15,000 exact local monthly searches is something I'd hate to see you miss out on by doing nothing.

    Best of luck!

      The site has actually had a single article on it since late 2012, so it does have a bit of age. Just wondering if it's a good idea to SEO it or just work on building a list using solo ads, video, adswaps, etc. Anyone still having decent results with EMDs?

    Build a list with it. Imagine if you would have started building a list with it since 2009
