    Hi everyone. I guess this is a better one. After everyone said badassfuck was a mistake, I went back with better idea. So this is what I got.
    The c-o-m and o-r-g of the same are being sold on godaddy auctions for 15000$ and 3488$ respectively
    I guess this one is of some value too.
    What are your opinions?

    I've never been too good with pricing domains, but it seems like a strong one.

    I don't know about $15,000 though...

    Lol I dont want 15000 for it. I just informed that the d-o-t c-o-m was being sold for that price and the auction is still on so it may be sold for more

    Ohh I guessed that. I'm not trying to hit a jackpot anyway. I just want to make some profits of it. So it's okay. :)

    Max - you are looking for internet cash via shortcuts; this is not 1996.

    If you want to make money online, take a look at the money making section, the journey section and such and see what suits your fancy.

    Getting lucky with a domain name you can flip is probably not going to happen, as it was pointed out to you in your other thread, there are people with tools that are searching high and low for domains that are worth buying and reselling and a rookie has hardly a chance in that arena.

    So, hit the auto parts store and go in the grease aisle and grab some that says "elbow" on it and use that if you want to make any real money online.

    Thanks a lot. I'll definitely keep that in mind and get more serious. :) Btw what about this domain? Is it valuable?

    The domain is valuable if you build a site around it, rank the site and monetize the site.

    Otherwise it is as valuable as a can of motor oil in that Auto Parts store I suggested you visit.

    I would take to heart more fervently the words of BassTrackerBoats. He gave you the best advice you'll receive today.

    Actually I want to start my own website but I don't have the money for seo and content and I cant write the content myself so I thought I would get some profits from this and then may be if I get enough money to fund a website, I can go ahead with it. Also, I want money for internet plan as it is going to end pretty soon. So I thought this might be a way to get some money in my paypal in a short time. :)

    I'll tell you what . . .

    That's perfectly understandable. A lot of us here who've been doing IM for a time forget about these type of start-up costs; I'll buy domains on a whim and never use them, for instance.

    So, that being said, both sides are right here: you're right to try to get money without spending too much; we're right that you need to work on a solid, long-term plan. But that knowledge doesn't help you very much, does it?

    I'm going to write down 3 words below, nothing more (not because I'm trying to be awkward; other reasons).

    1. Local.
    2. Ignorance.
    3. Keywords.

    Think about the above and profit.

    Do you mean to say I should target local keywords which people have ignored, and hence they have low competition and make websites with those keywords to rank quicker?

    Yep, unfortunately this isn't worth much. If you had the plural (traveljobs.net) it might be worth a few bucks, but can't see this fetching much more than reg fee.

    You don't need money for SEO or to be good at writing content to get started. Most of us around here had <$100 in the bank when we got started, it didn't even occur to me to pay anyone to do anything until I had made 5 figures.

    Why is your internet plan ending soon? If you're just trying to make some quick cash to then go do something else, I wouldn't bother wasting your time. IM is only worthwhile if you're in it for the long haul.

    No.

    Here: 1. Look at flipping local domains. 2. There is ignorance with local businesses when it comes to domain value. 3. Choose EMDs.

    That should be enough to go on. I could expand further but I'm feeling under the weather.

    Alternatively . . .

    Consider article writing. You can get started there without any outlay.

    I read somewhere that value of emd has decreased. Would people still buy them?
