    I got 2 pretty decent domains that are aged over 8 years but were never developed on. i want to start building them out as the adesnece alone pay between $.75 to $3 per click. The thing is the market on this keywords are very rough. Is it something I should pursure to try and get at least top 3 pages or so OR is it worth it due to the many many sites that are already ranked for years? The field is credit cards and mortgages

    haha, that's what I thought too. :p..

    @OP if your site has some great content then I don't see any reasons why you can't dominate them.

    I would rather go for it... 8Yo domain including words like "mortgage" "credit cards" is a goldmine ;)

    Add some quality content and then go crazy on link building :D

    I'm convinced that the guys who are making the most money with online businesses are the ones working with what people here call "saturated" and "overly-competitive" markets.

    Hey dude, I have been running a mortgage site for the past 3 months, no WP or Joomla CM, html by hand. it gets easy after the initial hurdle cause you are competing with PR7's and sites that have been online for years. I am ranking top 3 for all long tails and top 10 for the competetive KW. Just keep on building steadily and adding content every day.

    Well it's not making you any money now so why would you NOT add some content? At least add the content and start letting the content age. An 8 year old domain is nice but if it's been dead that whole time G doesn't know about it. By adding content and letting that content age you'll get even better results.
