When 320 domains are due to be renewed all within a month.
and when they did not make so much in return..
If you didn't use them, no way should you renew them. :shrug:
320 domains !! thats huge !
320x3(average)=1k about...hmm nice one.who's the lucky one?
How many of those 300 are making you money?
1. They're successful; in which case you should be celebrating the fact that you had a good ROI, and can look forward to another year of development on a strong foundation...
2. They're making a small profit or breaking even, so you have to decide if you can develop them enough. As long as they're covering costs, I wouldn't let them go; they're still an aging asset that can be devloped and used in multiple ways.
3. They're making a loss, so you need to quickly appraise why and see if they will bear fruit with some extra work; and whether having that year old domain will make it easier.
4. They're doing NOWT... in which case, consider why you bought them in the first place and whether they're worth anything.
I know it's pain when a big bill drops in, but you really should be loking forward to saving these costs ongoing. It's not as though you didn't know this was coming. Just bank 80c each month for each domain as part of ongoing domain cost, and then, when you get there, it's just a recurring cost; like the tax bill! As long as you treat it like a business, there's no need for this to be a problem buddy.
Looks like someone is going to eat nuddles this month
Hope you are dealing with .info
Some I am cutting loose, were high searched EMD, but not directly related to any of my niches, so I'm going to drop about 10-20 of them.
120 of them were from one niche, where a company paid me $8 to put them up, so that pretty much covered the first year. The same company now pays me 30cents per click. And the good thing is, I can make the links, "buy xxxx for the lowest price, click here", so it's really easy to get clicks compared to adsense or whatever else. There's a good chunk of them that are rating high, a chunk in the 50 range, and a chunk that aren't indexed. So probably about 50% of them are making money and the rest aren't. But they are all EMDs with 800-60,000 exact searches (only about a doze are over 10k exacts). And little competition, so it wouldn't be hard to rank, just the time to actually do it.
Second group is about 110 domains for my main niche. I have about 80 of them done. Majority are ranking high, so I'm definitely keeping these ones. I will put banners on them to my money site. The average traffic is probably 200-300 visitors per day so in total it's probably bringing in about 15000-20000 visitors daily. They are all on different c class IPs as well.
Then other 50 domains are from high quality expired domains and high pr domains bought at auction, so will keep those ones too.
I should probably get rid of about 30-50 of the first group of domains, but it's hard to let them go lol. I feel I can rank them easy. But I guess I have to figure out if it's worth the time for a few bucks per month or whatever it brings in.
Omg. You poor thing.
.infos are just as expensive as the others to renew, they are just cheaper when you first purchase them.
Do you get any discount for having so many?
Little bit. Think it's like $8.50 per domain.
I have the same problem as you but with just about 100 or so domains to renew soon. Mostly EMDs with 6K+ searches per month that I didn't have the time to rank yet but that I want to keep for sure When doing IM at first capital was the issue and now time is the issue!
I'd have a brain seizure, I like to keep my life simple so I can spend all my free time playing in nature...
Care to PM me what domain you would drop?
Interesting opportunity for JV
