    i personally don't think it is worth buying. There are many good exact match domains still available. you just have to look :)

    no need to buy one for $250

    Ask for traffic stats first. There is content, some backlinks, PR. If it's already getting SE traffic there could be potential to bring in a lot more.

    [swimsuit model] 2,900 Exact Searches.

    Currently ranking on google: 106

    9 : http://www.y0utube.com/watch?v=JIG9_vP3xNs
    
    These are all authority sites which wont be outranked. Also, on Google.ca anyways, I am getting Youtube videos first (Videos for swimsuit model) and Google News second (News for swimsuit model). So if you are purchasing it to rank #1 for that term, forget it, there is no traffic there.

    Just some thoughts.

    I don't think this is worth $250, try to search there's still many sites like this.

    I watched it last time it was listed on flippa. It got to 2k and didn't sell. so for 255 I would buy it!

    I don't think it's worth that $250 or so... Unless you're an experienced domainer and are willing to re-sell that for profit :)

    Surprised swimsuit model is such an unpopular term.
    Probably not worth it for that low of searches.

    I dont think its worth it man! Like kickflip explained earlier, there's too much competition to rank for #1 and it doesnt really get that many searches anyway.

    Competition doesnt scare me. Even SI isn't to big to be beaten. I would move it more towards how to become a model type site rather than a fan site or whatever it is at the moment. Modelling agency sites do quite well.

    Why would google ever rank a modelling agency site over sports illustrated? That just doesn't make sense. 75% of the people searching for this term are looking for sport illustrated, 15% are looking for non-nude photos to wank too, 5% are running a similar blog or website, and maybe 5% are actually swimsuit models/wannabe swimsuit models.

    And that is being generous.

    Because it will have 20k backlinks with the keyword "swimsuit model". Haven't you learnt anything here?

    20k backlinks with the keyword "swimsuit model" means anything? o.0 Whoa. Well I have over 200,000 backlinks to my website so I must outrank everyone. Even IF you managed to rank it Top 10 for a few days, Google would change your ranking due to the average time on site/bounce rate compared to Sport Illustrated and Youtube having a much lower bounce rate and much higher time on site.

    Number of backlinks don't mean anything when you are dealing with authority websites. You have to have high authority backlinks from related websites in order to even think about out ranking them.
