    will take about 6 months before I get something solid on there, will just put up something simple for now and throw a few links at it to get it started in Google and start the aging process.

    Hey Paul, good deal you got there. I'm surprised ibltd let it go so low in the end. Was weighing it up again just a few days ago. A lesson I guess, that if you're looking at a domain, two or three other people always are as well. Small world :)

    I'll buy it off you for a few K more if you grow weary of it...

    Thanks James, but I won't be selling in a hurry, if ever 8)

    Looking forward to working on this one, could be a very popular site if done well, I think.

    Well done paul you got yourself a great bargain, never sell that domain name you can setup the site very quickly by using wordpress blog with affiliate and non-affiliate offers and post one or more comps a day and you be no1 on google for competitions in 6 months.

    "competitions" was search for 301,000 in august on google uk :D

    Great name Paul, looks like you got it for a good price too!!

    There is a lot more you have to do than just post every day in a wordpress blog to get to no1 on google - especially in 6 months, with a domain that hasn't been developed properly in the past.

    You 100% right ben, also paul trade links with other competition sites or get blog/myspace/facebook users to add a link to competitions.co.uk just link fly.co.uk etc

    FLY competition giveaway!

    Also you can offer online shops the option of listing their competition on competitions.co.uk for free in exchange for a text link back as their are 100s of online shops offering competitions each month they be happy to do business with you as long as you setup a good looking site with a nice logo plus dont forget to add a newsletter option (very important optin email is king) so you can email your visitors of the latest comps, you can use aweber.com great service and cheap (USA) then you add non-affiliate comps with affiliate comps a nice mix if you looking for ideas for comp offers checkout ukcompetitions.com and signup to loquax.co.uk forums too you find lots of affiliate and non affiliate comps there, all the best paul.
