Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
what would you say is a good way forward for that particular project?
Well, if I had the time to think about it, and I felt it was the "way forward," I'd be in the bidding process. If that were the case, I doubt I'd share it here, certainly at the moment. ;)
However, In the past, here at WebmasterWorld, we've discussed the future for search and directories that are not one of the top three/four big boys playground. It really comes down to how to monetise the service. That's the challenge. There's no question, resources are needed to invest in its profile, and to make it different from the other offerings.
All you would need are some high traffic sites, partner with them slap on some ads do some work with the index and you could have a really good business model for in the UK. Good for someone looking to break into the UK market.
I hope he gets over $20k, everythings included (hardware etc)
I doubt I'd share it here
And here's me thinking I'd find the only thing missing in this deal: some good ideas on how to make something of it :)
It's a highly risky investment and may never become anything and therefore not something to break the pension fund to finance i.e. invest only what you can afford to lose. But at the current price I'm just struggling to resist putting in a bid myself.
