44 replies
UPDATED: I sold all the websites for $35. So it was a loss but im not that bothered.

Hello warriors!
Ive got 27 domains (some have got pagerank) And i dont know what to do with them? Some of the domains have sites on them and some dont, all of the domains together get around 2000 visits per day.

Here are the domains:
CLUBPENGUINFORUM.NET PageRank = 0 /10
DIGITALFORUM.CO PageRank = 0 /10
E-BOOKDOWNLOADS.INFO PageRank = 0 /10
SECURITYCENTER.CO PageRank = 0 /10
PASSWORDFOX.INFO PageRank = /10
IDARE.INFO PageRank = 0 /10
HIDEMYBEHIND.INFO PageRank = /10
HIDEMYBEHIND.COM PageRank = 2 /10
FRIENDROAR.COM PageRank = /10
ARGOSVOUCHER.COM PageRank = 0 /10
FLIMFROG.COM PageRank = /10
FILEHOSTINGPLUS.COM PageRank = 0 /10
FBCC.INFO PageRank = 1 /10
FBPROFILEBADGES.COM PageRank = /10
FACESURF.INFO PageRank = 1 /10
FACEPROX.INFO PageRank = 1 /10
FACEGAMING.NET PageRank = 0 /10
FACEGAMING.ORG PageRank = 0 /10
FACEGAMING.INFO PageRank = 0 /10
SITEDEAL.INFO PageRank = 0 /10
WORLDWIDEVOUCHERS.INFO PageRank = 0 /10
SAFEBROWSER.INFO PageRank = 1 /10
NEWSASIA.CO PageRank = 0 /10
RTOZ-MEDIA.COM PageRank = 0 /10
MOVIETRAILERSBEE.COM PageRank = 0 /10
FACEBOOKAPPSFORUM.COM PageRank = 0 /10
Privateface.info PageRank = 0 /10

What should i do with them? Should i sell them? Or keep them?

    I just checked most of them and to be honest they don't seem to have any value at all. My idea would be to sell them as a package and try to open a new site in a good well-researched niche.

    You can try to sell them over here at WF or at Flippa

      Seems an idea, i have around 30 other domains but most of them have sites on them that im going to sell on flippa.

      How much do you think all the 27 domains would go for? Ive got 100% positive feedback on flippa if that helps.

      And my main site is going to be: Webmaster Startup - Get Your Site #1 On Google In 1 Week

      Yes, it's better to have one great site than a bunch of worthless mini sites (no offense). However, there seems to be an easy solution to your problem. Sell these mini sites as a package either here or over there on Flippa, and use the profits to launch and build one great, all encompassing, high value website.

      All the bests,

    That kind of depends on you, do you have the time/motivation to build them out? If not sell them.

    Also I see you have quite a few .info domains. Personally I wouldn't spend much time on these as they seem to be at a disadvantage to .com/.net and .org when getting ranked.

    And beware of the domains you have with brand names in them eg. argosvoucher.com, this could potentially be a great traffic site if you got it ranked but Argos could have it taken down at any point after you spent a lot of time and money on it.

    I don't mean to be the voice of doom and gloom but sometimes it is better to cut your losses than throw good money after bad.

      Thanks, i mean im very busy most of the time and i dont have time to build sites on the domains, if i did i would just put a script on the domain. Maybe i should point all of the domains to one of my main sites to get it traffic?

        Like hustlinsmoke says, are they on different ip addresses? (different hosting accounts) if so you could use them for backlinks. I wouldn't redirect for the sake of 2000 visits per month, they are totally unrelated keyword type domains and the visitors you get this way wouldn't stick - this will increase your bounce rate and hurt your rankings for your main site. The big G isn't a fan of redirects.....

        ......but having said all that I must confess that I know very little about redirects, its just something I have always steered clear of so maybe listen to someone else on this point

        Good luck with them anyway mate!

    Yeah you have only a few .com and then those hyphens do not help on some. You do have a few good ones though. Theres always room for junk traffic, you can always redirect. I would concentrate on the few good domains you have though and work those. I myself would try to sell the rest or let them go or use em for black hat or grey hat if they are on a seperate ip.

    I used to have 200 domains, and was like a horder, now Im down to about 20 but all 20 could be sold just for the name of the domain. I only buy .com and .org now and never use hyphens. All are built with a keyword in mind, if I can get the keyword I need I will add a number or symbol behind it. It is getting hard and hard to get a good domain name and you just can't pick up an expired domain name like you could in the good ole days, You have that waiting period then others waiting and it usually ends up costing over 300.

    They don't appear to be particularly valuable domains. You might luck out and get a buyer who wants one or two, but it would be a stroke of luck.

    If you can't find a buyer for them, just let them go, unless you have some development plans for some of them. You could develop the ones that are getting the bulk of that traffic, but if you don't have a good product to sell from them, it won't be worth the trouble.

    Early on, I registered a bunch of crap domains ... more than what you have listed, and ended up writing it off and learning a lesson about registering domains.

    I agree with most of above, not much value to your names and would be better to sell them as a package.

    You also may have a few trademark issues. I am referring to the names that have the word "face" in them. Facebook has been known for going after anyone using its name in the domain.

    Something to think about.

    Facebook can stop people from using the word "face"? It's an English word used in
    many other contexts. For example, Apple uses FaceTime.

    And speaking of Apple, another English word, could they object to someone using
    GreenApples for example?

    Where does the copyright start and end?

      In some contexts and for some purposes, yes. If you're trying to profit from Facebook's success and fame, for example.

      That's what happens, with trademarks.

      No.

    Get rid of all of them, sell them, give them away... whatever. They are a burden.

    Instead... create one new domain name and call it:


    THINGILOVEDOINGTHEMOSTINMYLIFEITOTALLYLOVEIT.COM

    Not that exact name, but you get the idea...

    And then start putting love into content you build about that subject. Put love into gaining loyal readers, however you do it...twitter,facebook,word of mouth in person...backlinks... up to you. If you care, you will do it.

    You will be a millionaire in 3 years.

    Good Luck.

    If they have some traffic or rankings just park them at google for domains.

    I have a few there from misguided attempts at different things and they make about $50 a month or so on average.

    Easily pays the renewal and I don't do a thing except maybe once very 3 months do a bookmarking run on them or something.

    Only works if they are getting some traffic though.

    Park the domains on godaddy or somewhere. Make some money from the traffic you are already getting.

      If the sites are not making any money and there is no worthwhile content,i would personally get rid of them.

      I had around 16 sites but only three are making me money.

      The problem with having so many sites is a lot of work is required to maintain all of them,unless you outsource them.

      Concentrate on 1 or 2 sites making sure you have lots of unique content

    How'd you manage to get so many domains? I hope you're not paying a monthly charge for them all. If you are, i would cancel all of them and focus on one site, in one niche, promoting 1 product. 27 sites to market and manage sounds like something that would give me a major headache.

      Even though the OP has stated that he sold all his domains and basically no more advice is required, lets see how many people keep adding their 2 cents worth because they don't bother reading ???

      Better still, before you follow this useless advice, do a bit of research on Trademarks and get some proper advice.

      It totally depends on who owns the TM but don't just go and get anything and assume it's ok, some TM holders defend their TM's far more aggresively than others. At least, if you wish to monetise the domain and make money off the back of someone else's TM, get it in writing from the TM holder that they're ok with this, or get legal advice.

      With 2000 visits per day, you should put Adsense ads up on all of them IMMEDIATELY.

      Once they are earning income, then you can decide whether or not to sell them. And they will sell for more $$$ if you can provide proof of income to the buyers.

    You've got two viable choices - Try to make something of them, or sell them as a package. I think the latter is your best bet because the sites you posted don't seem to have a lot of built up worth, and would therefore take a lot of time (each) to make it work.

    I see in your domains that you have some great domains and are worth to improve them and constantly add some content to them. I think you should pick up no more than 5 domains with a potential income in the future.

    In my opinion, I think that selling the other sites in Flippa is a good idea but I recommend you to sell them individually. Just create a great description about the potential that the buyer could benefit from your website.

    Good Luck.
