2 years ago, I had a .info domain that I bought for 89 cents and built a free website tonight page for it. I then pointed about 200 domains to it (mainly .co.cc's, but also .infos, .nets, and even .coms). Then, using those domains I would pull traffic to the site from a source that I will just call agent 007 lol. Please understand why I can't just speak of it in public, and please nobody blurt it out either. Anyways, over time I noticed throught analytics that the site was gaining more and more search engine traffic, and after about 8 to 10 months it was getting over 50% organic google traffic. Now keep in mind also, I didn't mention this earlier, but it had little to no onsight seo, because I am not really an seo expert. Then I even realized that many highly competitive keywords ranked #1 (I guess because of the couple of paragraphs I actually wrote) The niche was also a very competitive niche, so given the fact that I was ranking #1 somehow, I was making a killing from the website. I then decided to take the money that I had earned and pursue a couple of completely offline business ventures (bad mistake). I left the website alone, and did not even pay to keep the domain or anything. (HUGE MISTAKE!). Then after being away from the internet for a whole year, I came back and decided to try to pick back up where I left off. I went to purchase the domain back, and it was available, but the damn thing was listed as a premium domain and priced at almost $9,000! A .info = premium = $9,000? WOW! Needless to say, I still started over, but with the $8.99 .com of the same name lol. Im getting the traffic again, and starting to get a little organic google, so lets just see if it works again lol. If it does, I know not to make that mistake again!
