    Some of you know the story about a domain name I own related to the Drew Carey Show. Currently, this domain is pointed to our TH Media site, however, traffic is on the increase...and I mean on the increase

    As of this date, the domain name has received 80925 visitors in the month of May alone. These are also people typing it in and not coming from search engines, etc.

    I've decided that its time to do something with this traffic.
    I'm looking for ideas on something Drew Carey related. I'm thinking along the lines of a fan site, with a message board, gallery, and of course affiliate links to everything Drew Carey related.

    I'm open for ideas...If did a message board, what type of forums should I have included?
    Also, what other suggestions would you have to include on a site like this, besides affiliate links

    How about branching off and including info about Ohio, and also Whose Line is it Anyway?
    You could always point those 80,000 people to my site. I can think of a few things I could do with them

    Ah. THAT domain name.

    You could include a Drew Carey biography/history. Progression through his career, etc. Stuff that Drew Carey fans would like.

    If you wanted to branch out into stuff on Ohio (like the previous poster suggested), I'd focus on Cleveland and the attractions there, such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And whatever else they have in Cleveland.

    Oh, and don't downplay the idea of a nude picture of Mimi.

    Great suggestions guys...that is what I was looking for. I don't have any 'fan' sites except for a few musicians that I'm close to so its easy for their sites

    I love the Cleveland idea..and a great way to expand on it.


    As for the naked mimi...funny idea, but I wonder how many of those 80k would stick around (and I would have to wonder about those that did )
    I will be sure to get Mimi on there, but clothed

    And don't forget, Drew was always wearing a Cleveland Indians or Cleveland Browns jersey.

    Just don't link it to any GSI sites.

    Definitely include Cleveland Indians and Browns merchandise from SportsFanfare.

    I hope this site does great for you! Kudos to you for picking up the domain name.

    Tom,

    Hazy has a good idea. Throw a custom t-shirt place up there with Cleveland Rocks or something on that nature. I'm sure there must be Drew Carey t-shirts around. Check into calendars and posters too. Email me if ya need any links

    Being in the UK I had never heard of Drew - In fact I thought Drew was a girls name (well it is here!). I now feel sick as I looked for a photo of this 'woman' - Yuck! wash my mouth with disinfectant.

    What's the domain?

    I live and was born in Cleveland and I live only a mile or so from his old 'hood. Good luck with the site.

    Contact Drew and see if he would grace a chat forum now and then.

    My first thought was something about a drinking buddies section of the forum.

    2nd thought, dividing the forum into characters to talk about.

    For something sticky, how about a look-a-like photo contest for the main characters? And let the fans vote.
