    I want to know if domain name investing/flipping is still a viable business.

    I've looked on flippa and seen some "Domain-Only" listings going for $X,XXX just for the domain.

    I know keyword and niche research is vital in order to get a good domain with a fair amount of searches in a month.

    Have any of you made money buying and selling "new" domains with good research on Flippa or any other site?

    What kind of success have y'all had and can buying and flipping be used to earn a bit of money to pay the bills?

    I know the real money is in website building/ flipping, but right now I'm strapped for cash and looking for a quick way to make some green.

    Of course it's still alive, and if you know what you are doing, you will surely make a lot of money.

    The problem with valuing domains is always hard, as it changes from buyer to buyer, the more someone wants to get a domain, the more he is willing to pay. Domains on flippa sometimes go for more than $10k.

    But I doubt you will make significant amount of money with registering new, keyword sensitive domains. You should much rather make a website with these domains, establish it, and then ultimately sell it.

    Good luck though!

    i think the value of the domain is as much as the buyers willingness to pay

    A domain "Is worth what a buyer is willing to pay!" You ask 10 different people on what a domains is worth, net savy or not, and you will get 10 different answers most likely.

    It is still a viable business, you just got to play your cards right!
