    I'd be very grateful for an opinion on:-

    greatbarrierreef.org.uk (9,000 Exacts on local)


    Bag of pants, or worth something ?

    Should I :-


    1: Try to rank (top 10 looks very tough to beat) and then wack in some travel related affiliate links

    2: Flog it

    3: Put it down to experience. (must try harder next time......) :D

    My first attempt, so go easy on me eh.

    Cheers

    Hey Alastair,
    Welcome to AD - pop over to the Introductions forum too buddy, and give us an intro too :)

    What goes through my mind is that I probably couldn't just flip the domain as it is, but rather it was one to develop now, seeing as you've bought it, and use backpacker/holiday affiliates and/or adsense maybe. Be a shame to give up on it straight away.
    Just my newbie tuppenceworth...

    I'm interested to see what the more experienced members think though, just for learning purposes, as I noticed this was FTR (free to register) the other day.

    Best wishes,
    Steve

    Hi & Welcome

    I would say this name is not worth anything but maybe make a site on it you have 2 years to make some ££

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for the welcome.

    As you can see from the WHOIS, I only purchased it this morning :p

    Feel it might have been a mistake though. Just looking at that top 10 in SERPS is mostly PR 5-6 with very mature domain ages.

    Perhaps it is one to set up, through a few backlinks at and let mature?

    I too would be interested to here a more experienced opinion.


    Cheers
    Al

    I personally wouldn't have registered it - not in the org.uk. thats not to say somebody with some real 'conservation' interest in the area couldn't make it work.

    No resale value as a domain only thats for sure
