Ideas needed

Hi there,

I really need help and suggestions on one of my brilliant domains getting around 120 visitors a month and even earning couple of bucks a month from clicks it gets on sedo parking page. The reason I parked it at sedo wasn’t the rev, it was just because it’s the easiest way to have an idea of the number of visitors.

The domain name is BuildFree(.)com and I know if used properly it can be converted to a self-successful project but for some reason it has been months that I couldn’t think of a unique and good idea to implement on it since I really don’t want to spoil it.

Both .net and .org ones are active and have daily traffic (they are not mine) and since I own .com, I am mostly getting their typo traffic since there are a lot of people like myself trying (.com) by default when they hear of a domain name.

Suggestions are highly appreciated.

Cheers,

Soroush

    Well, buildfree.org is #1 of about 285,000,000 results for build free in Google. In Google Keyword Tool “build free” is getting decent monthly traffic. buildfree.org is PR4.

    1. I would suggest offering your site to them. See what they are willing to pay. It would help if buildfree.com were indexed. (If it is, it’s not ranking high).

    buildfree.net is PR0 and doesn’t rank high for build free, but ranks high #3 for buildfree of 567 results. In Google Keyword Tool “build free” is getting a small amount of monthly traffic.

    2. You could offer buildfree.com and buildfree.net to buildfree.org for a much higher price, while negotiating with buildfree.net to buy their site for a reasonable price (to resell to buildfree.org). The package deal might be attractive to buildfree.org as they can divert all the extra traffic to their already High PR site.

    That’s what I’d do, anyway. Might be easier than developing a website that isn’t guaranteed to earn you big money right away.

    Just found a mistake in my comment. In the 3rd paragraph, “build free” should be “buildfree”.

    Thank you for your comment :)
    Actually I usually look at “selling” as my last chance and before that I want to try my best to develop a website on it and have some ideas (not interesting enough) but just looking for some free time to start and see how it goes :)
