Bought some domains with SE traffic, need advice.

    I picked up a good bit of recently expired domains with SE traffic. The domain names are gibberish but each individual page is made up of the keyword along with content for the keywords. I tried to go grab most of the pages via the g00gle cache but I got a temporary ban as they thought I was some type of bot. Besides, there are just too many pages to save from the G cache. :)

    Long story short, there's no way I can save each and every page nor can I find each page in the cache including the Internet archive because they' were not archived. I simply parked all the pages on a known parking service but the problem I'm having is that I can't specify keywords for each domain because each domain has a bunch of articles on a diverse range of topics. The only plus to this is that the pagename is the keyword (ie. how-to-fix-your-stove-cheaply.html).

    I need some advise on how to handle this properly. Should I keep them parked and lose profit potential or should I try to host the domains on my server and try to monetize them that way? If I host them on my own server instead of parking them I'll get a lot of 404 errors for pages that don't exist BUT the 404 error pages will have the keyword as the page name.

    Sorry for the long post, just need some input since I just bought 100 domains and plan to buy more shortly.


    Thanks! :)

    I would suggest you to rebuild the website, it doesn't have to be exactly the same as the old one, I believe it's easier since you already now the most of the pagename right. Just get some articles from article directories, slap adsense or and ads relevant to them.

    Parking them is just a waste, you'll lose traffic sooner than you think.

    About that 404 errors, I believe there are ways to get around it, simply redirect them to your index page. How? Google has the answer :p

    Cheers,

    You can monetize 404 error pages also! Don't think 404 errors are useless, they just look like a typical error page but it can be monetized, when all else fails, STUFF THEM WITH SOME BAKERIES :)

    I screwed up a while back, some slick webmaster decided he was going to hotlink an image from my website, when I found out all the bandwidth he was stealing I was alarmed and pissed when I checked my stats, I had like 3,000 hits a day from this thief, I angrily contacted his site and demanded he un-link the image NOT thinking to stuff the image he was hot-linking so that I could give all his visitors a treat. I didn't think then but I hope someone with that type of traffic would hot-link me again, I have some fresh bakeries waiting for their traffic.

    Thanks for the replies. Pretty brilliant idea about the hotlinking cookiejar. :D
