    Hey Guys, I was looking to sell some domains here or on an auction site somewhere, but I don't know what the value of these sites would be.
    • I have about 10 domains in total, they are all scraped, expired domains.
    • They all have a fake aliases which have been email ownership of the domain verified, with a dedicated email address and 1 years hosting/ registration paid on completely separate hosts.
    • They're all indexed in Google and have 10 x 750 word of copyscape passed, unique content, not the best ever but I was going to add better content later, I see this more as padding. Additionally, they have a contact, terms and about page on all.
    • They all have a nice website design as i'm a designer, they do not look like PBN's.
    • The URL TF average of these is 25, Root average is 17.
    • The average Ref domains of these are 50.
    • The DA average is 17 and the average PA is 30.
    • Anchors are clean, history is clean etc.
    • They've all been built to fit their previous existence. E.g Existential blog is still just that.
    All have social media profiles setup, with an IFTTT between the blog and the channels. This is not a sales thread, I genuinely have 0 idea what I can do with these as I don't need them so i'm looking for advice. Thanks in advance.

    Sales thread selling them would be easiest
    I'll volunteer for the review copy now :p

    Or for more work you could sell some links, but with a small network, it would not last long.



    Really unless you are going to use them yourself, or build up a MUCH bigger network, those are your 2 best options.

    Thanks man, I've been hovering over the 'Domain Sales' forum for most of today but the title of the section is "Fixed price fees." and I have 0 idea how much they are worth.
    I don't want to rip anybody off, but I also don't wanna completely undersell them, basically I guess it's a PBN site that's already setup and to a pretty good standard too!

    Never a problem.
    Many sellers here offer just domains for anywhere from $30-$300+(and WAY more for super powerful).
    I've seen decently setup premade PBNs going for $200+(some lower with bulk purchase)
    Now I wouldn't really factor in the content, as you only said "not the best".
    Find a good price you're happy with, based around competition. If you undervalue them, but are happy with how much you made, then they were valued right.

    Well, let's break it down:

    The price of the domains with those metrics is around $50 a piece (according to the pricing I use, so this might be off, but it's a good starting point), so that's $500.
    Registration fees - $100
    Design - $100
    Articles - I will go with $30 a site, so $300
    Hosting - EBN for 10 domains for a year is $420

    I don't think I forgot something, so that brings us to $1400 give or take of total expenses.

    Anything extra you add there for your work will be your profit. I would say around $2K is a decent price, which would make you $600 profit. Of course, selling links might be a better and more profitable option, but with, let's say, 20 total client OBL, you would be able to post 200 links. Make it $100 for 10 links and you are again at $2K (doesn't include article costs + extra work).

    @Nargil was spot on with maths. Build a larger network to scale up the link selling.
