    I have a couple of misspelled 1-word domains. Anyone in the know about how much their worth?

    Do they sell at all in sites like Flippa?

    So do they have any traffic or revenue? Are they from popular "one word" websites?

    Nope, not much value in search. Google will correct the spelling and show the results so the wrong spelling will not get much search hits.

    Honestly I don't know if they have any traffic because I haven't tracked them. They're undeveloped...

    Its worth nothing much now unless its like a membership site or something google has caught on to people ranking with mispelled Keywords. you cant get listed cause google will auto correct the spelling LOL....example a good one use to be.

    if you type this now google will NOT show the how to loose weight

    I use to think Greyhat and Bh was the way on SOME things but now with google catching on to things you do better spending your time doing it the right way. for the long haul unless you want to throw away time....

    Nope, they're not worth much, unless the "real" domain gets A LOT (I'm talking hundreds of thousands a day) visits and therefore the misspelled domain gets type-in traffic.

    But even then there's a very good chance that Google will shut your Gooogle down and Microsoft will file a lawsuit against your Mucrosoft - in most cases this is direct copyright infringement and it takes a large corporation about two weeks to get the domain off your hands.

    Domains DO NOT sell on Flippa. Full stop.

    Sedo, Afternic, dnforums etc. are for domains, Flippa is for websites.
