So just as the title of the thread suggests, is it any good to run a website that's a city portal? It would cover city specific news, event updates, shopping deals, classifieds, weather & traffic updates, etc.
Would something like this work? And for it to work, what would really be required to generate sufficient targeted traffic?
How would it best be monetised? In my opinion, AdSense is a no-go on this one. I'm thinking of getting offline businesses to pay for ads on the homepage. But that'd work out only when I have a substantial user base of daily visitors.
So, what sort of visitor engagement things would I need to do to get the visitors participating in the site more?
Thanks in advance for your ideas
