If you notice the top prices at expired auctions this year you notice one clearly emerging trend. The top prices have been more and more names with juice. By juice I mean history and strong backlinks. Names that will forward some of that authority and traffic to a site that could use it. The value of that has been confirmed in the prices. If Google didn’t give that any credit then there is no way people would pay 5 figures for what on the surface seems like a bad name. They pay because it adds 5 figures worth of value to their site.
The problem with all of this is myself and most others have no idea what names are more valuable than others. Some may tell you they know but rather than buy them and sell them to people that can use it, they sell you a service that will tell you what names to buy. If they are buying some for themselves as an investment it makes sense. Because nobody has enough capital to buy every name they see as “good”. I would be buying 95% of the names on my list if I had endless capital. I buy what I can afford and what seems like the best buys in my price range. But I have no idea what names to buy as far as offering juice. Because of this I’ve stuck to plant and garden related historic names and geo located around my town. Those are in my wheelhouse and I actually use them. The others, I’m not sure I would know how to sell them to people that can use them and be convincing. Anyone have some history and examples of reselling names with a history?
