    Hi guys
    Just wondering what you thought to this domain name I have just brought,
    Googles keyword search says it gets 90,500 local exacts a month, was wondering what value it has or is it worth building a site for it?

    Thanks

    Worthless. If you ever started making money on it you'd end up in hot water.

    Because it was registered in bad faith to take advantage of the search traffic for the gigsandtours.com brand. I believe they have even trademarked the term.

    Surely you investigated the search volume prior to purchasing?

    i registered a trademark domain the other day without realising the term was a trademark. So it's pretty much worthless haha, I'm sure alot of others have done the same. Live and learn.

    I had the same thing happen the other day

    I logged into my nominet account to deleted it but for some reason it wouldnt let me so i contacted heartinternet and basically told them i didnt realise it was a TM name and i dont want nothing to do with it, they got back to me within 15 mins to say they had removed it.

    Id rather take a loss of 6.70 than have the complications
