    I'd really like to try to build this and take advantage of the huge market there is now but just don't have time. It's just an auto blog right now but with a bit more "real" content it could be pretty decent. Figured I might as well sell it while someone can take advantage of the hype :mamoru:

    Not sure if Rockstar cares about trademark infringement, but monetize that shit. You could make way more than you would if you sold it and it would only take a day to design a layout/put a wordpress site up for it.

    Yeah true but just don't have much time right now to promote it. I spent 20 minutes adding ebay and amazon stuff but don't really have time to build it up and get more traffic.

    I guess I could give it a few weeks now that there is at least some "content" on it but figured someone else might see the value and have the time to kill with it.


    intrktevo, true and probably could have captured some of the presales but there is plenty of time considering how huge the game is and the future it will likely have. Plus it would work just as well for future versions when they come out ;).

    just put ads on it until you start to hear shit about GTA V and then just start making rumors and shit up and posting like 2-3 posts per day.

    There will be plenty of "juice" for a long time. Being such a huge game and already breaking records there is going to be plenty of general news. As well as all the various updates, extra content packs, PC release and of course all the cases where shitty lawyers try to blame GTA4 for some dumb ass kid killing his friends lol.

    Just keeping it updated with cheat codes and tips and maybe adding forums would bring and keep a decent amount of traffic.


    lol, I'm talking myself into keeping it :mamoru:

    I had an decent, and cleaner, theme being done but the dude flaked out and it's only half finished. Too lazy to finish it or work on it myself.

    Besides...I assume a good percentage of the targeted traffic would be myspace users so they should feel right at home lol

    it looks like balls in Firefox 3 Beta 5. The text is really hard to read because it doesn't look like it's lining up the way it's supposed to.

    lol, it looks like that in all browsers I think. It's the feeds that throw things out of whack. When youtube videos are fed it's even worse lol.

    I could probably set up a cleaner feed but, well, lazy.
