    Im hoping some of you kind gentlemen will provide some advice on what i should do with a domain name. The name is

    www.24hrlocksmiths.net

    I registered it about 6 months ago thinking i could do some affiliate sales on what i consider is a great domain name. But despite looking far and wide, i simply cant find any affiliate programmes at all. Not one....i felt sure there would be a locksmith chain or something that i can tie in with...but no :(

    So what do you think i should do now? I could sell the name and get little or develop it and hopefully achieve a good price in time to come, or, try and target adsense.

    I have attached 2 screen images i took from Google Adwords, one AU and one US. Would you target a specific market or just all countries?

    Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated as i'm unsure what is the best way to go.

    Thanks :)

    Difficult one - the industry is super-local but the domain extension is very broad which doesn't help you.

    My suggestion would be to target US and use Adsense (unfortunately) and hope Google's large customer base can deliver some relevant ads for visitors

    I think this is mainly an Australian term yet the extension is American/internationally focused. Doesn't work in my view.
