    What do you guys personally think? I started a topic under "Blackhat lounge" But I feel this is more of the proper place to be posting.
    Do any of you personally think any of these has value? "Ebolawashere" I think will be a great one to play around with.

    Piratebay I don't know, Hollywood just got,got. You may have undesirable effects.
    Ebola heat map. Since you used "was" you wouldn't have to update live.
    SEO and ererybody in that game. Maybe flip?
    Fork stripe and build your own payment cheap???

    Make it count!

    I would say all of them are only worth the registration fee. None of those are really good and I'm guessing you just hand registered them. If this was the case you have to ask yourself why they would be available if they were worth anything more than the registration fee.

    You'll probably make most of your money off of those domains by the redirection traffic from this forum. That may be the point of your purchases? I am unsure.

    Hopefully you used 99 cent coupons because then you only wasted $1 on each. They are useless and worthless as they sit...honestly not even worth the registration fee.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond, I don't entirely agree with the "bold" People lose domains all the time, new domains gain value. Example... www.ebola.com
    For the most part you are correct. Might of just been a big waste of money.

    I think you are giving me entirely to much credit.


    I did not unfortunately. Thank you for taking the time to respond and express your opinion.

    The guy who had Ebola.com though I believe sat on it for about 6 years and then got really lucky that it became such a media sensation. That is not a good business model to bank on.

    Domain speculation is a lot harder than most people think. You have to be really smart about what you buy and be willing to hold onto things for possibly years. After all of that you have to find somebody who is willing to pay you enough money to justify the risk and the waiting. It's not easy to just jump into.

    I appreciate your professional response, others have been a bit "Iffy" I guess you could say. I have a few ideas too play around with on such domains. I am not hurting on money, so this will be a fun project to play around with during free time.

    "EbolawasHere" Is something I mainly am looking forward to playing with. I think it could be used as something to look back on. For example, If one was to have a website about 9/11 and how tragic it was when everything was going.. I bet they make a killing every 9/11. As I previously stated, I am not hurting on money.. Just broadening my knowledge. Please don't misinterpret.

    I truly think they are a waste of money as if there was any value to any they would of been snapped up.

    That's true, you have to be a real forward thinker to make serious cash from domain sitting.

    I think you've just added to your portfolio of idle domains that you will do something with at some point in the future.

    We all have them :)

    Why 99.98% Domains bought are never renewed ?
    Because they dont start with "Being with end in mind"

    They could be worth pretty much if they come together with a well established plan. But you have no idea about what do to with them, how will you convince someone to buy it if you don't see any potential in them?

    Ebolawashere, sounds like a virus site that infects your pc.

    Piratebayisback would be good if pirate bay went down againg and then you pose as pirate bay.

    Anyways, any updates on these domains op?
