    The domain could be for yourself or to flip.

    There is no correct answer and everyone has a right to say what they think/do. It is a personal opinion.

    Examples of things you may look at: Age, PR, Alexa rank, if PR is valid, backlinks, indexed pages, CPC, Google Searches, domain length, etc.

    Yes, feel free to go more than 3 and to put numbers with your factors, example: Age - 3 years or more. PR - 2 or more. Domain length - under 15 characters. Or whatever.

    This thread is just for the curiosity.

    For us it is what best serves the idea of the page we are creating.The other factors can be overcome and manipulated to get the results we want.

    purpose is huge, what are you going to use it for and who are your potential targets. age is another important factor. yes everything else can be built and manipulated but time = money and if you have a chance to get an aged domain then the benefits are definitely there. truth is you can turn any site into a money maker... who'd thought godaddy would be so great. lol some sites will need more branding however but just take action.

    The money I have earned from previous projects does not agree with that. It depends on a lot of factors if you are better off researching than taking action but yes, taking action is the best way to get a true answer obviously.

    So you build a domain around a website, I was hoping someone to tell me about building a website around a domain.
