    I was the winning bidder for boxers. It's nice to see your comments about it being a good buy - It did stretch the bank. The site isn't resolving at the moment but I did put a quick amazon store up...

    Not sure how to make the money back quickly apart from selling it on...

    Hi Ben

    I did see it listed on DL at the time and almsot bought it for the BIN of £3,500, but I decided to run PPC on it and from the results, it was not conclusive what people were looking for :

    Boxers = boxers shorts / underwear

    Boxers = Mike Tyson / David Haye

    So I decided not to buy it or bid for that reason alone :)


    http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=boxers&meta=&aq=f&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai= If you take a look at the front page of google, you will also see what I mean

    freeoffers.co.uk - a good looking domain, very cheap, especially compared to specialoffers.co.uk (owner wants more than £100k)

    i believe both freeoffers.co.uk and freesamples.co.uk were bought by Kass, who used to be a member here.

    He also runs freeonlinegames.co.uk so a great fit !

    Why don't you put 3 main sections/ subdomains on it (or pick the best).

    1 for boxer shorts with corresponding store
    1 for boxing with corresponding store/adsense
    1 for boxer dogs where people can buy/sell them (they go for a lot of money - £400 to £500 each!)

    Get people to cough up £50 per listing maybe, plus sell dog related stuff.

    Or start breeding them :)

    I would have thought that boxers (the shorts) are by far the most likely to sell in quantity online, and to carve out a bit of a niche (outrageous/funny/whatever) in the novelty gift market.

    Thanks Dashu/Edwin for the ideas. The Amazon store I have up at the moment - mens underwear was the most likely idea for me (as Edwin suggests) at some point I will try and do a custom mens underwear website.

    I also had the same issue of figuring out what people were looking for when searching for boxers (underwear, dogs, fighters).

    If I was more of a boxing fan, or bred boxers then I might sway more that way - but I know more about boxer shorts than the other two ;)
