Ive been patiently watching the drop lists and back orders for around 10 years. Finally got the GEO .com for my home town!

I'm planning on building a business / news directory on there of some sort. Something to give value to the residents of my town and fund it from ad space.

I've reviewed these city portal scripts:

http://www.phpcityportal.com/demo/
*Its very very basic but does work. Looks amatureish in my opinion.


eDirectory - Higher priced...looks Meh... ok but not great. Some features
http://www.demodirectory.com/

Ive found one script that seems to work similar to huge websites like http://www.villagevoice.com/
but starts at around $50k which is not in my budget at this time.



So my question is... for those who own *profitable* geo domains here on DNForum, is there any advice that you could please give me on:

*Best software to use for a city portal that makes $
*Other ways to make the domain profitable?

Thanks!!

Congratulations, I also hunted down my town as well but settled for the ccTld

I am using Wordpress with GeoTheme http://www.geotheme.com/ it is a bit of a monster to organize categories but the developer forum is active ($80) so there are numerous mods to squeeze out what you want
