    I just stumbled on this while doing some keyword research into new niches, and just checked how old this domain was - 8 years!

    Once I add some unique content and get some traffic going, how much do you guys think it will/could be worth? Has about 4000+ searches for the exact name, plus $3+ for long tail keywords. It's 9 characters long.

    It depends on the extension it is in. If it is .com and doesn't have any TM issues then you could make some money with it, all other extensions, much less and it goes down to reg fee pretty fast..

    But if you build out a site, then you can make some nice money and flip it depending on your monthly earnings + domain value and site value.

    Do calculate it's value:

    (Exact monthly searches) x (Percentage of these you'll get as traffic expected based on ranking) x (Expected Click Through Rate) x (Value of Each click) = Earnings per Month

    This is how much you'll earn a month and assumes you won't get any long tail, referral or direct traffic. Sites usually sell for about 8-12 times this value...

    like everyone else says, earn with the site for at least 2 - 4 months before trying to sell it.
    it's true. potential buyers won't trust you much if the site has little or no earnings.
    so, your domain / site is not worth much yet at all. start making some cash with it first.
