I'm going to start a webshop. I have 2 options: Option 1: Use my newly registered domain and build a webshop from the scratch including building all the (back)links from start. Domain only costed me around 5usd so thats a pro Option 2: Try to convince the domainholder of a nice name to sell their domain to me for around 500EUR (718usd) The name is nice for me IMO. She may crack for 500eur and give it to me. Date registered: 09-06-2005 Thats a pro right? Older domains get ranked easier? Downside is I have to persuade her. I don't know if its possible I ran a backlink check on the domain i want to buy: domain-pop.com found: Backlinks: 227 Domains: 54 IPs: 38 I don't know if these stats are any good since im new to SEO. What is your opinion on this matter? I like to hear all your honest and constructive opinions. Thanks and rep is on your way!
