    Good number of searches, and every expat who moves abroadus (im one of them) uses the .co.uk search tool still. Hence high(ish) search total. ens

    I also bought expat-forum.co.uk (its hyphenated? Im a total noob.... how badly do hyphens hurt the value?

    The reason I bought these domains is simply that I could get some cheap easy traffic of expats and then put up some banners for expat pension transfer companies (i.e QROPS) - I happen to own a few hehe. So it MIGHT have some value to me... but does it hold any intrinsic value to others?

    IM sorry I keep posting absolute garbage on here - but I'm learning hehe

    I don't think you will find people offer you vast amounts of money for the domain alone, mid hundreds would be a good sale IMO. That's because the real value is in developing and building a community, which ultimately would probably get good traffic levels, but would be a lot of time and effort, and much quicker wins are available.

    Its prob worth about £2500 imho

    This is one of those domains if you did put the effort in can make very healthy advertising revenues from the likes of;

    barclays wealth
    hsbc offshore
    share trading sites
    cheap calls abroad companies
    BUPA health insurance

    Loads more.

    Done well it could be dev'd into a nice earner...

    Thankyou

    Cheers guys for the comments.

    Finally bought a domain that hasn't been absolutely slated ;)

    I will be putting a lot of these domains on Sedo shortly, anyone interested in purchasing for £1000? :p

    Would be nice to just sell a domain that pays for all the reg fees i've done so far lol - i'd throw www.expat-forum.co.uk into the bargain.
