    I am about to buy domain (.info) that has 100K of monthly traffic to it (at least this is what GoDaddy says).
    Is that a good idea to buy such domain and use it for adsense or to transfer this traffic to my other sites (redirect)?
    Did someone had experience with doing something like this?d

    You can always park the page using Sedo, they would give you a better eCPM than Adsense and affiliate programs, but it would eventually die out.

    No parked domain has 100k uniques / month.

    It's fake traffic.

    GoDaddy has wrong info about domain?
    There's some site under that domain that still exists

    If it's a published site it's a different story.

    Yes, they have some published simple 1 page site asking if "I am interested in their domain".

    So shall I go for it?
    It does't have alexa or similarweb and it's not .com, all it has is 100k visitors according to what godly says.

    Be cautious at Godaddy Aftermarket.

    I've once found 15 domains on Godaddy aftermarket.

    One had
    30,000 visitors/month
    Others had
    29,800
    29,760
    29,400
    .....
    ...
    ..
    28,000

    All domains have 0 BACKLINKS

    Obviously iframe or botted traffic.

    I've reported this 15 domains to Godaddy but they didn't remove this junk from inventory and THEY DIDN'T, so at the end, several Godaddy customers spent totally about 10,000$ for WORTHLESS domains.

    Godaddy doesn't verify if traffic is legit, they just count it no matter if it's real or not.

    What kind of site it is? Is it that good it could possibly have 5k UIP's/day?

    If it is a live website with that much amount of traffic then you should buy it but if it is a parked domain, it is probably fake traffic generated to improve the domain name value.

    I think any domain No parked has 100k uniques / month.
