    nyce post
    the "10 points" threw me off tho i thought this was a scoring system!:eek:




    a domain with backlinks and pr is worth lots more because the site will have traffic and most likely lots of good organic traffic!witch some people will kill 4!
    and you can get lots more for ad space etc if you have good pr! $ = more revenue!=more value!=higher appraisal!
    a good domain name with page rank backlinks etc is like a good corner store vs the same store on a dead end street!
    the domain with back links is worth more because it has a chance for lots more shoppers being lots more people see the store on the corner vs the dead end st so the owner of the store on the dead end st. will have to spend more money and work more to get the same profit!
    hope this helps
    i saw this post as i was posting wanted to give my 2cents!

    Nice Appraisal guide. Sometimes some factors are considered by the buyers which look like that they value the domains they want to buy as higher than usual appraisal/ value. For example, an affluent person who grew up in a small town and he buy that town domain for a very high amount. I saw this couple of times.

    Great post, I think pagerank, number of backlinks, and alexa ranking can really make any domain profitable though.

    Yes its from the top to the bottom.

    If I see a very good domain name then I just buy it. If I have doubts about its pronunciation or being a common word then I look for other reasons and at that time the backlinks and existing traffic does comes in play.

    Thanks.

    Great post Nick :)

    and to add a tip for people.. don't register TM (trade mark) domains.. most enduser/reseller buyers avoid this and will probably just give legal problems in the future. On the monetization part, most advertiser sponsors doesn't like websites with TM names so its a bit hard to monetize. However, there's nothing that stops anyone to reg TM names.

    Firstly great post!

    Secondly, indeed tm names is always a big confusion to go on with. However, it also depends on what you are actually promoting on that site and if you are doing it all legally. :)

    Excellent posts and guidance, however I wonder how marketing is involved or, may I consider this bad luck?

    1) TLD <<< I have a dot com
    2) Keyword itself <<< One word, keyword is the name of a European region and also a castle in that city
    3) OVT <<< last time checked was high
    4) Length of Domain name <<< could be this? 14 letters
    5) Dictionary word or not <<< obviously it appears in the dictionary and encyclopedias
    6) Pronounceable <<< sounds nicely and can be pronounced by any occidental person as far as I know, who knows in Orient.
    7) Brand able <<< not sure about this being a geographical location and a public placeon it.
    8) Singular or Plural <<< singular
    9) Keyboard relation <<< Could be this again? due to the lenght some people may miss a double T in the name
    10) Google results <<< over 4 million results

    Add to the above a 6-years old and obtain ridiculous offers of $25 USD for it :mad:

    a googol is, and always has been the number 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

    Hi Nick_Mayhem

    Many Thanks For Your Quick Reply.

    You put a smile in my face mate.

    I like this one so much.that you send in your email.


    He is wrong and he is right, about your domain not selling for more then 150 USD

    Wrong because I think it can sell for nice amount.

    Right because domainers who want to buy domains always wants to buy it at lower rates.

    God Bless You My friend.

    And Many Thanks For You Help.

    man just thinking it will sell for a nice amount isn't enough, people talk alot
    but you need to see the money first if you know what i mean :)
    because i just can't believe anyone will pay a lot of money for a domain with no seo value (just it's name maybe).
