    I have a number of Google related domains and I don't know what to do with them. They are currently listed on Flippa but not getting any bids.

    The problem with the domains are that they constitute a clear infringement on big G's trademark.

    One of the domains is docs-google . com and gets over 1.8m broad searches and over 1m exact searches per month. The domain big G uses is almost identical docs.google . com.

    I am in the UK and from what I have read about cybersquatting laws etc. it seems the worst that can happen is that they take the domains from me. I am prepared to take a risk at monetizing the sites in the short term.

    I also have about 30 other high search domains that are not trademark related and 6 Ipad domains.

    Example of other domains include: hire-a-lawyer . com and original-articles .com

    What should I do with these domains? I would consider a JV if anyone is interested.

    If you already have them might as well try to monetize them. Unless they get type in traffic though they're worthless, you're not going to outrank Gs official page in their search engine so you're not gonna get any clicks. However, you are correct to assume that the worst that happens is you will lose the domain in most all cases.

    No traffic to the google domains at the moment as they are not indexed. The domain mentioned above has been indexed before and was generating traffic.

    I am not sure if there is any way to see how much traffic it used to get?

    If these domains get popular, you may get C&D letter from Google.
