    I have just loaded Google Adsense onto a parked domain

    and am starting to get some hits. I presume it must be a good name, because at the moment it is just showing ads and won't be appearing in search results.
    I am an utter noob with this stuff, so please help if you are prepared to be gentle.
    What is the easiest open source structure I can marry with this domain name to start building some content? My intention is to make it more worthwhile to visit in the meantime to build some genuine clicks?
    Is it a blogging solution? Noticeboard? Social network like ning? Something that allows multiple media upload like vid and audio? A Twitter feed of relevant terms?
    I presume I would need a hosting arrangement with someone like Godaddy. I have no experience with this, so any help or recommendations much appreciated.
    Or links to a basic ning-nong information also a great help.

    Did you sign up for the AdSense for Domains program?

    You can't put normal AdSense ads on a parked domain, they'll suspend your account.

    Well picked up, Dan. I have signed up for Adsense for Domains.
    I am pretty fresh at this, but I at least got that part right!

    Wow, congrats! What's the name of the website? (You don't have to say if you don't want to, just curious.)

    Thanks for the support! I might just keep it to myself at the moment - sorry. I am sure it is nothing earth shattering, but it points to the type of solution I am hoping to develop. So best not give some enterprising types an early heads-up.
