Is there any SEO value in domain names like Makers.ForSale or Plans.ForSale?

    I bought these names a couple years ago. I always had plans to create websites that used affiliate marketing links to promote products using subdomains like Bread.Makers.ForSale but I just never seem to be motivated to carve out the time to do anything with them. Combine that with my lack of creating public sites. I'm a programmer using Asp.NET to make intranet business apps at work, but I don't have any experience with SEO or affiliate marketing at all. I'm kind of torn between trying to make sites and just selling the domains. Got any advice?

    Are these name worth anything from an SEO standpoint? Or should I just put them up for auction at some place like flippa and let the dream die and come back to reality?

    makers.forsale
    maker.forsale
    packages.forsale
    plans.forsale
    supplies.forsale

    This is my first post here and I'm a total newbie when it comes to this stuff, so go easy on me.

    From SEO Standpoint, domain barely matters. The problem is that 99% of people don't know there is such an extension ".forsale" on the internet, and most people won't go to these sites.

    Remember, always go for domains that people can remember. this is the only use of a domain. SEO is based mostly on content. I only buy .com extensions even if they are a little bit longer.

    Another thing is that most of your domains sounds too generic and booring. "makers.forsale" and "maker.forsale" dont eve make sense.
    I say sell em if you can, and never buy any other extensions other than .com .org and .net

    Agree with the above. The new fangled extensions are way inferior to proper TLDs like com, net, or country specific like.co.uk

    Nobody has heard of them, and although google says they can rank as well as real tlds, they dont.. sell if you can or let them expire

    While I don't like domains other than .coms, I disagree with the previous comments, don't be so drastic; bread.makers.forsale sounds fantastic to me, with proper marketing and good SEO it can be a good domain. Just think of seeing bread.makers.forsale in Goigle SERPS, that name would attract a lot of potential visitors just by the Name itself.

    Give it a try, it may not perform well but can potentially be a jewel, you'll never know if you never try. dropping it without trying would be a mistake.

    Just like delicio.us had so much success they changed their domain because it confused web users!

    A name wont rank using the extensions as a keyword, so the op needs to know they are comitting serp suicide
