I am looking for a way to easily add content to a number of domains I
own. All of the domains are in the 'realties' theme such as
www.bostonrealties.com, www.oceanfrontrealties.com, etc.
Other than just google ads, I am looking for an easy way to add
content to the site that is relevent to the domain. When the user
clicks on my site, ideally I would like them to see a number of
listings for real estate ads relevent to the domain (ie - they would
see apartment listings from manhattan in www.manhattanrealties.com).
What I add to the site has to be inexpensive- and I am willing to put
in some work to the sites to make them look nice. The solution would
also be easily applied to each site I own (as there are around 50),
without major modifications. Please describe how profit could be
I am not an expert in html, but I do have some experience building a
few sites. I own NetObjects Fusion, which I use to create my layouts.
Thanks for the help!

I have a few questions...
1) When you refer to visitors seeing a number of real estate listings
appropriate to each domain, are you hoping the listings will be
income-producing for you (in other words, people would pay you to list
on your site) or are listings OK that are pulled from another source
so that you actually have listings for visitors to see when they land
at your site?
2) Are you open to multiple forms of content, not just listings?
3) Are you open to offering free listings? (With paid 'exhanced'
listings offered...assumign you see listings as an income stream)
4) Will you have any advertising budget for things like Pay Per Click
5) Do you plan on any offline marketing?
I ask because the real estate listing site field is a *highly*
competitive field, probably one of the most competitive.
You're in competition with every realtor and mortgage broker known to
man as well as to deep-pocketed listing site competition that has a
many, many year headstart on you.
As a result, you'd need a multipronged approach and I wanted to make
sure you were amendable to considering that...or not discouraged by my

Thanks for the inquiry- let me explain...
OK- well I would like the site to be income producing, but not through
sales done through my site. I am very familiar with 'pay per click
arb' and actually set up most of my sites like this-
(www.newyorkcityrealties.com). I am still in the process of getting
the adsense ads to target correctly though- I can't figure out why
hotels keep coming up as the ads instead of real estate companies :(
While ppc arb is OK, you don't really need great domain names to make
it work. I don't really see the need to renew my sites again when I
can just make subdomains for each city, state, etc. for the arb. I
would rather have these sites justify their yearly renewal fee by
adding content- as I feel the domain names themselves are pretty good.
I guess what I am looking for is for the users to see actual listings
from other sites- and when they click on the listings I would gain
money via an affiliate network. I want something a little more
sophisticated than google adsense- but something similar, only
targeted to real estate listings and with the actual apartment
listings, not links to the agencies themselves. Ideally this would be
a free service like adsense. So I would add some html to my site
which would add targeted Real Estate listings depending on the city
that is there.
I am not looking to make a fortune on the sites- but I wouldn't mind
averaging a couple of dollars a day per site.
I guess I know what i am looking for- but I have been unsucessful
finding any sort of service like this in my searches.
If you can't think of anything like this don't worry about my
question- but thanks for the effort!
