    So I'm needing some cash and I was thinking if I could sell this free domain I got, sogiaoduc.co.cc, I don't even know if I can sell it as it is a free domain, but I'm not using either, it as an high pr and is a very searched keyword as it means education in Vietnamese according to google.
    If you know more about this than I do, which is easy, just drop a post ;)
    Thanks!

    Strange how the domains redirects to a Squidoo lens for a free iPhone offer. OP are you trying to get traffic to your lens from BHW by any chance?

    It's unlikely that you could sell it, nobody likes using free extensions for whitehat/reputable websites. The PR might help, but that isn't to say that Google won't see it as spammy. Who knows.

    If you had this domain with a good niche, you could actually rank. I managed it with a co.cc domain i have.

    But for sale, i don´t think it is worth the time

    The PR on your domain is fake, and is forged from quangtri.edu.vn(PR5).

    The domain is worthless, unless you can trick somebody into buying a fake PR5 name.

    Not at all is just that I need to have the domain active otherway co.cc will remove it from me on 48 hours and has I don't have better use for it I made it as an url redirector for a lens I have.

    It actually is on the first page of google.com for the word sogiaoduc, so I don't belive google sees it has spammy, but it is true, usually peopledon't want free domains for something more reputable...

    The problem is that it only ranks good for a Vietnamese word and I'm not Vietnamese nor I understand it.

    Fake PR's? That is new to me, how do we can fake them and how can we see if it is fake or not?

    Thanks for the replies.

    OP, I am a Vietnamese and that word does not mean education in anyway. There is no way you can monetize that keyword so just bail it man.
