  1. Hello,

    I'm planning to buy a domain name in french language. The domain is 8 year old and always PR 1



    Here is some more informations :

    at this time the site is 32th in google.fr first in yahoo.fr and first in bing.fr for the primary keyword and 70th in google.com

    After contacted the guy , he said me that somebody already bid his domain name for 950 EURO (= 1200 $US) ... I'm noob with buying old domain name.

    Can somebody confirm me if this is the right price ?

    What does i need to ask 'as proof' to the guy ?

    Thanks !
    Regards :D

    How much does it make a month?

    How much traffic does it get?

    $1200 sounds like quite a lot based on the information you have provided.

    Yes,
    1200$ for a domain which is PR1 and 8 years old sounds a much expensive.

    The domain can be worth of 1200$ if it is related to a popular product or something which has a huge market currently.

    There are 2 or 3 issues that are mainly concern while buying a site.

    1-High PR
    2-Highly trustable for buying the products


    I think both issues are not according to price. Investing the money in this site will be wasted for you.

    This isn't true at all.

    The two most important things when valuing a site are traffic and profit.

    In this case, it depends what value the buyer sees. Whilst it wouldnt have much value to me, the buyer might have a good way to monetize the traffic or something like that.

    Like meathead said you need to get proof of traffic from him (analytics report or otherwise) and proof of earnings (adsense report, cpa, etc.)

    You should place your bid based on those two things and offer something relevant to 6-12 months of the site's net revenue.

    Really depends how valuable these keywords are he is ranking for.

    It might be really worth spending that money and cut your SEO costs.

    I have sold a few domains based on rankings in the past for much more then he is asking for.
