I was doing keyword search and went to see if a keyword was available. It popped up as a GoDaddy expire domain, and I had to purchase for the 1 year renewal fee + the expired domain purchase.
It was a hefty $20, I couldn't find any promotion codes that applied like they do typically when I register domains.
After purchase, I noticed it wasn't in my account, so I called their staff to be informed that the registrant had 4 more days, and if they didn't register it, then I would get it after 2 weeks.
I'm curious if anyone has had experience with this, and I was wondering, since the domain is a year old, will that help it for SEO purposes, or will it lose that value after I get it (if I get it ;0)
