Expired Top Level Domains Can Be Profitable
Unfortunately, there are so many hopeful[s that start out to build an Online Home Business but then just simply slip by onto the wayside and go no further. Perhaps they lack the necessary discipline or conviction but whatever their reasons, domain names expire, and fall into the chasm of cyberspace, basically being forgotten about by the hopeful that registered it in good faith in the first place.
For those with a keen sense though, a golden opportunity awaits.
What these TLDs can do for someone with a keen eye is to present the opportunity that goes beyond the TLD. Some of these domains carry a lot of weight in terms of their value. Many are attached to top performing websites with excellent search engine rankings, quality traffic. These good statistics are indeed a valuable commodity and make a website worth a lot more than starting out from scratch, not to mention their existing traction in on the World Wide Web.
Picking up an expired TLD is a useful thing to be able to do in what has become a saturated market. It’s still possible to purchase good TLD but the chances are getting lower. Don’t expect to get one for a killer bargain price though, certainly not the ten dollars that you will pay through a domain name company. There will be a premium price to pay, so you should go through the usual processes of due diligence to make sure it’s worth your investment for what you want to do with it.
The side effect of websites that go through a process of “maturing” is that they accrue a lot of traffic and links organically and that’s exactly what the search engines really love, so they’ll award good ranking for those sites. For you it means that someone else has done all the hard work for you!
In your eager anticipation be careful not to get caught up into over paying for an attractive looking TLD that seems just the right fit for you, and again do your due diligence to make sure it fits with your plans.
Back links and ranking should be a good indicator of where its value lies, and beware of some sellers who will try and sell to off the back of statistic that they have collated; always search for independent stats… the search engines don’t lie.
If you can spend some time getting used to this method of domain name “flipping”, once you’ve become savvy to the way it works, in can be quite an exciting add-on to your Online Information Business as it grows; “turnkey” sites can be very profitable – it’s just that you need to invest time in developing the necessary know-how.
