    hi,

    i have a 11 year old domain name from 2000. it used to be for my old computer store, but i never updated it and i just pay for it every year. its very outdated.. what kinds of uses can i use it for?

    since age of a domain does play a factor in seo.... i wonder if i can capitalize on it.

    thanks.

    Depends on what it is. Age definitely plays a big factor in SERPS. Depending on the niche you may want to look into developing it. I'd be more than happy to take a look at it for you and give you some suggestions.

    im still educating myself on this, but most likely i wont be selling it due to the fact it was my first domain i ever purchased. so are 11+ year old domain names rare ? and how much do they usually even go for if it were to be sold..

    so ur suggestion would be to just develop something on it that is niche?

    All depends on the name.. if its something like: buymycrappystuff.com then it probably isn't worth much...

    PM me if you are interested in jv to develope site and make some bank, would depend on niche and domain name and whether it's been active or parked.
