    Okay so I was in a impulsive mood and bought a 17 years old expired directory-type EMD edomain.

    something in the trend of: www.<HIDDEN>

    The full keyword (aka domain name itself) has +4000 monthly searches and competition on kwfinder is 39/100. The domain has no backlinks pointing to it.

    I was thinking of making a webdirectory website from it, boost alexa traffic and try selling listings to nicherelated websites through it. Perhaps doing something (SEO/Trust) to boost overal stats so it seems appealing to webmasters to buy a listing there.

    Any suggestions how i shall approach this to make it profitable/valuable?
