    I recently bought 15 Years old site, the keyword is not so catchy (100 searches per month), however
    DA = 15
    PA = 29

    Any suggestion how can I monetize OR can i sell it for big money?

    Rank it for the keyword if its worth it - depends on value of the keyword, if its buying keyword, what you stand to make in sales/commissions/advertising etc.
    Or do the same as above but also use it as a PBN to link to another site if you have one in the same niche.
    Or redirect it to one of your existing sites in the niche if you have one.

    It would probably have a fair value to you doing any of the above, but selling it might be difficult because on the surface, unless you have a need for it, its not worth that much (It might be different if search volume was in the thousands).

    On other hand, the history of such a monstrous website could be dirty.

    the metrics are quite low for a 15-year-old website and it may not be worth it to rank for terms with only 100 monthly search (this depends on how good/expensive the terms are of course.)

    I am assuming he has checked that but why do you consider it a "monstrous" website? Seems like a fairly common domain tbh.

    On topic; I would say build a MNS on it. Selling / promoting affiliate products or CPA offers is probably the best bet for a domain like that. I would only try selling it on once you can show it is profitable otherwise you likely wouldn't get much for it due to the low traffic.

    Also Moz stats do not equate to worth, neither does age of a domain tbh, Majestic stats are a reasonable approximation of whether a domain is quality or not but their backlink profile is the biggest indicator a lot of the time.

    The metrics are shitty, I have 8 month old sites better than that.

    Nobody can hold your hand here without knowing anything about the site's history, niche, etc. You can either make it a PBN, a money site, an Adsense site, or try to flip the domain. Not much in between.

    Ah ok, fair enough.

    I guess a 15yr old domain is fairly rare

    Can you give us more information? Based on what you have said, I do not feel that I have enough info to give you an informed answer.
