    Estimated for $320

    1 word .org

    @du6262 I've never tried parking a domain before, is it worth it? and what is the best provider to park with?

    Do you mean the search volume being for the keywords? Your best bet for the ones with high search is to develop them and do some SEO to get them ranked and make money from affiliate stuff or banner ads (if you wanna do more than just list them).

    Or you could try to outbound them, there's always that. Quite frankly, in terms of pure SEO, domain names don't really make a huge difference anymore with Google no longer favouring exact match domain names. Outside SEO, it really all comes down to the marketability of the name itself.

    For the pricing, it's tough to say, you'd have to add the names for everyone to gauge.

    getting the traffic is another.

    @MapleDonut Yes, the search volume being for the keywords.

    Actually I was thinking about the affiliate thingy for the first domain (the .ca one). it's related to "Debt" and has the highest searching. Debt is a really big thing/issue in Canada, that almost every family effected by. So affiliate would be a great thing.

    Unfortunately, I've never tried outbound before so I don't know how to do it :xf.frown:

    Are you actually getting a lot of direct traffic? Or just looked at keywords vs global traffic stats?

    Just develop it then, you can still keep it listed on the market even if it's an active site. If you do the SEO well, the value will go up. It's cheap AF to get a WordPress site up and it's really easy too. You may as well just do it since you're thinking about it.

    @t.A.T.u the best thing I can suggest is that you learn at least something, preferably a lot more than you already know, about marketing and sales. Do a search for "free online marketing tutorials" or "free online marketing courses" to get you started. Learn about marketing before you learn about sales. Sales is a subset of marketing, not the other way round. But, nonetheless, essential.

    Parking domains today is a pointless exercise. Go back 15 years or more, it was a good way to generate income whilst wondering what to do with a domain name, or whilst learning how to build a web site on it, or whilst waiting for a buyer. Those days are gone and unless the name has a high value it is likely to earn you precisely nothing. As @twiki said, you have to get the visits in order to get the clicks. On an empty domain with nothing to generate them? If you don't understand that, rather than wasting more time researching how it all works, just accept it for now and move on.

    If you have the skills to develop web sites, take the one estimated to have the most search results which you know enough about to add attractive content to and develop it, with advertising for income. The development and content is what generates the clicks.Then take the next domain name for a rinse and repeat exercise and go through them each, one by one, in that manner.

    That should generate a substantial recurring income from advertising revenue. As you are building, research the various ways to generate income from building and advertising on small sites to ensure you actually make money from them. Remember, your income has to cover living, taxes and, don't forget, reinvestment. Plus a bit to put aside for other investments and retirement funding. You'll need more domain names to develop if your income is to continue increasing.

    Those developed domain names with proven regular incomes will be worth far more if you decide to sell them as working web sites than you are suggesting in your OP.

    If none of that works for you, the only alternative left using the sites you already own is to become a domain name aftermarket trader - a domainer. This is the site to learn all about that.

    Once you have learned the basics of marketing, an essential prerequisite, read all the tutorials here and elsewhere until you have learned all about what to look for when buying domains, how to sell domains, the difference between active and passive sales techniques and a whole lot more.

    Learn whose posts to follow. Ignore the chitchat and "opinion" threads, read them for amusement only. You will rarely see such b*****ks written in the English language but they are great fun.

    Take note of the lessons suggesting how to upgrade the quality of your purchases using the income from lower grade sales. Flogging cheap commodities in any sector is a grind, no less so in domaining.

    I hope that helps. Good luck.

    @Mike Goodman Thank you very much for taking the time to check out this post.

    For developing websites, I'm pretty good at it but the main issue as you and others mentioned is marketing which is the main thing to attract users/customers to generate engagement/sales and that's what I'm trying to learn now. As for developing my own website(s), I've just started to think about it and will start doing it while learning more about marketing. Will see what will work and what won't and update you guys. Thanks again I really appreciate every word, suggestion and advice. You rock (y)

    I'm a great believer - mainly from personal experience - that content is the best SEO technique on the planet. This is going to put a lot of noses out of joint but it is my true belief: The search engines, including the monopolist I detest and despise, keep changing their criteria to beat the SEO agents who keep trying to game the system. But they still acknowledge and credit with higher ratings those content writers who simply write content for their readers and forget about keywords, keyword placing and all that old tosh.

    Conclusion? SEO is, essentially, a con trick. You are better off telling your correspondents on social media, choose your favourite, it matters not which one(s), about your web site and some visitors will turn up. This starts the cycle off: If the site is well written/illustrated, you get more visitors, you appear higher in the rankings, then more visitors appear, then you appear higher in the rankings, then more visitors appear . . . blah blah, virtuous circle.

    So write your first site and get it going. It will not rank overnight however good the content, so while it is brewing just start reading as I suggested and get your second site going. I'll wager that within a month or two you have promising stats for the first one, within a year an embryonic income, within . . .

    Hey @t.A.T.u, I just noticed the "values" you've placed by each of your domains. For domains generating those amounts of traffic they are extremely low. Are they from automated "valuators"? Estibot? GoDaddy?

    You could help yourself hugely by learning how to value your domains more accurately in order to get a rough idea of what you could actually sell them for with your new found marketing knowledge.

    Perhaps read one or two articles about domain name valuation on Rick Schwartz' blog, or listen to a Mike Mann podcast.

    5 are and are seriously undervalued if they are half-decent names. 5 others are .org which tend to hold up reasonably well in today's market. Chances are all of them are underpriced if ten of them are. It depends upon how good the names are in the final wash, but those are generating enough traffic to make the exercise worthwhile.

    I'm not a great fan of blanket dismissal (nor acceptance) based on pre-held assumptions. I learned in my youth that it leads to too many errors.
