    At the moment I am looking to make a fast flip on a domain name that I think could possibly be some easy cash but need some advice.

    Found this available domain which is ranked #1 in Google but only 110 searches a month but ALL targeted.

    I can see the past links to this site link to the #2 spot in Google which obviously they owned both domains and my guess is forgot to renew this domain name.

    I am thinking about purchasing the domain for $1.** using GoDaddy coupon and then trying to sell it back to them for $100 or so.

    What do you think about this idea or is there any other ideas that could be done with a #1 ranked Google site that outranks the persons top site.

    No don't do it.

    If the guy let it expire, he probably won't buy it back, and there is probably very little value.

    I will take it if I where you. First of all the fact that he might not want it or might of forgotten about it doesnt mean somebody else might not want it. There are lots of Godaddy coupons here so you would purchase it for peanuts in other words your risk is minimal. However if you value every cent of yours you should look at whether the domain is Brandable as an other option. Flipping Domains is a real gamble as Ive seen Domains getting more attention due to the fact that its Brandable and can easily be remembered as compared to the traffic it receives. You can swipe it through estibot for an appraisal but dont always believe what you see. Happy New Year :)

    Buy It, Rank it, sell to him or competitor once they are #2... Good Domains still hold weight my friend.

    If he owns the #2 site, what's stopping him from building links to that site and outranking the #1 site whose domain you want to buy? If he could rank a site #1 for that keyword, he can probably do it again.
