    Hello everyone, been here for a while reading all your good advice, but first time i am trying to involve myself with a question, so please be gentle :)

    So the thing is this, i am in sort of a wierd space with a specific project.

    A while back i was lucky enough to get my hands on a domain which i bought originally because it was a relatively short brandable .com domain (7 letters) now i am no SEO expert by any means, all though i am trying to keep up.

    Now after buying it i realized the domain had a Ahref DR of 62 UR of 55 (frontpage) with about 1000 links from all over the world (site was priviously used by someone building Wordpress themes) so quite a few of them are sitewide.

    Anyway i decided to rebuild the pages which had incomming links and then add a blog within the wordpress space and then i added some affiliate stuff.

    Now quite quickly i started to see rankings, the domain has now had content for about 3 months (was parked before then) most rankings are page 3-4 and above, and then a few non competitive keywords are from on page 1.

    Now i know 3 months is not a lot but i had expected to attract more traffic by now, and i am kind of at the point where i am just thinking, are my SEO abilities at all good enough to try to get this project to attract actual traffic through SEO.

    So i am now at a place where i am considering either staying with it, or sell it.

    Now you guys are clever so i am hoping to get an answer of two things.

    1. What would a domain like this be worth if i decide to sell it?
    2. Should i rather stay with it, am i on the right track, just with too little patience

    I need some advice please :)

    I think you should keep and build it. If you're not good in SEO, you can hire an expert SEO guy do it for you.

    built it up before selling ... invest some money in seo and you will get it easy back when selling.

    Yeah that is my thoughts now too, i mean even some SEO rankings will increase the selling price in any case, if i should succeed
