I have 32 domains that are:

"State"BusinessListings.com

I was originally going to use these sites to create of course, a business listing directory organized by city. I'm wondering if there would be a better way to monetize these domains?


Thanks.

    Not really because the only way people are going to find the website is if it has good content and is ranked on search engines, so just parking the domain with ads isn't going to do anything good.

    I have encountered a lot of people who are doing what you are doing. Managing every domain that you have will really be a challenge. I don't know if this can help you but what they do is they start by filling each website with high quality articles and by smartly using the keywords that they need to use.

    Use one domains and multiple subdomains. Manage them all using wordpress multisite option.

      Probably would be better if you had all 50

    You could put local information about each city. Offer free advertising to local companies from each city for a period of time and then charge them after you've built some good traffic.

    You know, location of local cinemas, schools etc and maybe even some history and monetize it further with some affiliate products from your advertisers or from other affiliate networks.

    Thanks.
    It's going to be baseless especially when these sites don't independently receive a good amount of traffic monthly.

    Aside selling ads, using ad network and affiliate product what else can you think of?
