    Is Flipping newly registered domains still worth it? When I say new I mean like a week old?

    About 20% sell on Flippa currently; most that sell have a pumped-up perceived value orchestrated by the seller's network of shills. They fake interest in the domain while pumping up the price. A sucker stumbles on it when it reaches the Most Active page and drops a bid thinking no way can he win with all this bidding activity. As soon as he drops a legitimate bid, all the bidding activity suddenly stops and he's the winner (loser depending on your perspective).

    If you don't have such a network and trying to sell new domains, I think your chances for success are slim to none. The only winner would be Flippa when they collect your listing fee.

    Yes and no. Yes, because flippa is really just a pain in the ass anymore. Although, if you have something of a goldmine, by all means use flippa. Otherwise, there are other ways to flip domains besides flippa. Be creative ;)

    Well, I've had a PR 3 I've been trying (not really hard) to get rid of. I didn't put it on flippa or anything. I think people are just less creative these days honestly. Speak to Meathead1234 about site flipping. He's the site flipping Mod and expert here.
