I believe the owner is not going to renew a .co.uk domian which is 6 years old and was never developed into a site. I was just going to catch the domian however the niche the domain belongs to is quite competitive. I am now in 2 minds, should I contact the owner and ask if he'd transfer to me? The domain is 6 years old which means google will put some good weight on the age. Or should I just catch it when it drops? Problem is the weight of the age in google serps will be reset, but if I contact the owner it might alert them to the domain becoming dropped.... What would you do?
