    Ok so I set up a pretty poor apple iPad site just for a bit of practice and did not even get around to putting my adsense on the site. Just checked my web stats and had over 600 referrals from yahoo in the last few days. Not massive traffic I know but for little or no SEO not bad.

    I am also ranked number 2 for the keyword 'apple ipads' also not too bad.

    I have the domain for sale on sedo but have had no offers - along with a few other pretty good apple iPad related domains on which I have done nothing. I might get my adsense sorted soon but have so many other things on the go at the moment.

    The interesting and potentially useful bit...

    I have a news page on the site that uses a yahoo pipe I created and I can only guess this is what is giving me the juice in yahoo search!

    Anyway the domain is www. apple - ipads.net (remove spaces) if you want to check it out for yourself.

    Hi - Sorry if this thread appeared to be a domain sale - that was not my intention it was to let people know about the juice yahoo was giving me because of my pipe news feed.

    But to answer the questions I have the domain listed on sedo as make an offer and have not received one offer!

    Here is a list of the domains I have if someone want to make an offer they can pm me.

    (remove spaces)

    apple - ipads. net
    cheap - ipads .net
    cheap - apple - ipads .com
    cheap - apple - ipads .co.uk
    cheap - apple - ipad .co.uk
    free - apple - ipads .net

    As far as these being trademark domains I would not worry too much about that just check out the hundreds of iPhone domains out there.

    Mods - If this post is in the wrong place please move it.

    I know there are a ton of those sites. its a popular method used by bhw but I know someone that it finally caught up to and its costing him much more than he made on each of his sites. my suggestion would be to cover your tracks thoroughly if you pursue that angle but in his case, they went after everyone, the merchant, the host, the registrar, etc.

    Why bother with this domain name? Google only shows a couple hundred searches/month for "apple ipads".

    Yeah, your No.1 in Yahoo for me. Hold on to this domain until the product launches. Screw a load of Adsense from it and sell the site to some wannabe IM for shit loads beofre Apple wade in.

    Any link building done?

    Thanks guys for all your advice. I have done no link building or anything with this site yet. I think I will just sell it for a quick turnaround as I am working on a bigger project at the moment and I keep getting distracted by 'iPads'.

    How much should I ask for it? Will throwing in all my iPad related domains help it sell?
