Hello warriors,

I stumbled on a keyword that have basically 1,500,000 global searches and I even registered a domain which is relevant to it!

My question is if I am looking to sell the keyword and the domain name, where can I go? What do you advice me to do?

Thanks a lot, appreciate your input(s)

Regards

    No big deal for a keyword that is of large searches. U need to check the competitiveness of the keyword.

    No one will buy the domain unless there is a proven cash income ready.

    My take: check out the competition and work toward make an authority site before selling.

    The value will be higher than of now.

    As the others have pointed out nobody will care how many searches there are for the keyword unless it can be turned into cash. I'm sure something like "What's the weather like today" gets millions of searches a day but unless we have some product or service that would compel someone to shill out some cash to answer that question then the keyword doesn't mean much.

    Godaddy has a pretty decent domain name selling/auction service. I know Godaddy gets a bad name (rightfully so) for a variety of reasons but I do like this aspect of their business.

    How to check the competitiveness of the KW ....

    I usually go to the google KW search tool and look for the searches and then google the KW and check first few pages to see how many websites are there .. ?
    Is that enough or there is any better way ?

    companies will OFFER to buy you out.

    So you don't need to go anywhere. Just stay right there

    First of all, you're looking at global searches. And which match type are you using?

    You should be looking at local, exact match search volumes ONLY.

    Also, are there plenty of related long-tail keywords?

    That's step #1.

    Step #2 is to determine how competitive your keyword is to RANK for. For this go to Google and use SEOQuake (SEOquake - seo toolbar, plugin, seo extension for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera) to check the top 5 sites in Google. Type in your keyword with "quotes". Now look at the SEOquake numbers for:

    - backlinks quality and quantity
    - PR
    - is this a top level domain
    - is the keyword in the URL/Title tag
    - What's the actual site look like. Is it good or is it crap?

    If you want to accurately determine keyword competitiveness and find out whether you have a REALISTIC chance of ranking for your primary keyword (assuming you'll be using *some* SEO to drive traffic), you have to understand the process and the principles.

    Otherwise you're going to waste a LOT of time and money...
