    I just bought a domain and after looking it up on siteworth, it said the domain to be worth almost $8000. How would I go about selling it for somewhere near that price and who would be interested in buying it? Thanks

    Those valuation sites are rubbish. Don't get your hopes up, it is highly unlikely your Domain is worth much more than what you paid.

    It has 70k backlinks and the domain is something like buynewcars, just don't want to give the actual domain cause I don't have privacy on it.

    These valuating websites are very often a trick, did you check its PR and backlinks ?

    These sites are good for a laugh, but think about it - $13 to 8000, nah. If i were true we'd all be on BHW getting voucher codes for godaddy and buying names for .99 and selling for thousands. Mostly these sites reel in newbies to get them to buy upgraded services, snake oil salesmen

    If it sounds likes it's too good to be true...then it's probably not true.

    So you bought nice spammy domain... Good luck with that, it is probably worthless.
