    Also got animals-for-sale.co.uk

    Obviously would be better without hyphens but any value to these? quite a popular search.

    Cheers

    I'd say this would be quite difficult to sell mainly because of the hyphens.

    The non-hyphen would have some value but it's limited by the amount of development effort required before you could make money from this sector. You'd still have to put in a lot of work to have a successful website in this sector. It's not an area where you can use affiliate programmes as far as I know.

    If you search for "pets for sale" you find pets4homes at no.1

    On their site it says:

    "Pets4Homes is the UKs most popular free pet advertising site, with over 1.5 Million visitors every month and 15 Million advert views."

    So you might be better off putting in the effort to develop it, advertising pet insurance, etc, than building dozens of piddling sites that don't have the same potential.

    They do appear top, but they also appear top for plenty of other keywords:

    Dog - 2nd
    Kittens - 2nd
    Puppies - 1st
    Dog for sale - 1st
    Cat for sale - 1st
    Puppies for sale - 1st
    etc etc

    yes,
    it shows it's a very good market with lots of potential.

    I think the OP would do better develop it into a similar site to that one.

    Thanks guys.

    I used to work for a big classifieds company, one of the domains they had was in the same format with hyphens and number of words, they then moved it to a different domain which was non-hyphenated and there was a general uproar about it from the customers.

    I think if your website users get used to typing in a domain that is a big part of it, apart from SEO of course.

    So maybe I should look at developing it.

    Cheers
