    Hey guys I'm a newbie and i'm just asking for some advice.

    There is this website that I frequent a lot last month because i can spam my website to that site and get decent amount of traffic from them.

    Late last month I was surprised because the website was no longer online but I keep visiting the site hoping that it would go back online soon so that I could spam. The website never did go back online.

    I had the biggest surprise yesterday because I was planning to buy a new domain for another website I had in mind, but it just got to me to check if the domain of the website I told you about is available... believe it or not, the website is available.

    I want to buy the domain because that website gives me around 1k traffic per day from my spams and checking on the previous stats of the website, it gets around 2.5k uv per day. However what got me cautious was the fact that the domain was quickly available. As I understand, there is a number of months for the owner of the domain to renew his domain... what could cause a domain to be available for purchase in just a few weeks?

    Help me out guys, should i buy the domain or not? Thanks so much in advance for your advice.

    Sounds too good to be true...are you sure it is the actual domain ??....if it is and you are confident it still gets hits from guys like you then yes its a no brainer......if it has been parked it will be de-indexed and wont get the traffic it used to but get the domain go to the wayback machine and put up its last relevent content it had before it went down.....Most people would say 301 it to your real site but that seems to be less effective than it used to be.....however for $10 buy the domain !
