Two of those appraisal services automatically appraised my domain in the $9-$10 range. It's been inactive and I'm the first owner. I noticed somebody on this forum said it's unrealistic to expect more if domain doesn't have high traffic. I have a few months till it expires so I thought to give it a try. My question is about overdoing it: assuming the domain get penalized (dropped from G index) for SEO spamming, how long before G forgets about the whole thing? Because I'd like to leave enough time - if possible - to return to the original status before I try to sell the name. I wouldn't sell the site because I don't plan to build meaningful content on it.
