    I dont want to beat a dead horse, Ive read a lot of threads. But...

    I keep reading... If its a good domain it will sell itself.

    But how many good keyword brandable domains do you need to make sales with type in traffic? I know there are a lot of variables to consider but Id really love to hear someone give some ballpark numbers on this.

    thanks

    It doesn’t matter inbound or outbound; in general average portfolio sells 0 to 5% per year, most leaning on the lower end percentage wise. There are people who do more than that by flipping for very low prices. There are people who do more than that by having spectacular names. But most portfolio owners fall into that range.

    What you need to rely on for sales first and foremost is good names.

    To answer your question, for most domains type in traffic is fairly low these days compared to a decade or two ago. That said, potential buyers may visit if they want your name

    So how do they sell? Sure some type-ins, searching on registrars, domain marketplaces, auctions, forums, etc.

    Tough question to answer about how many good keyword domains are needed to start selling. It really comes down to the details to increase your chances of selling. Here’s a link with factors I tend to consider to ensure quality.

    I’d say above post is about right (0-5% annually) probably around 2% or so as a rule of thumb assuming you have a good portfolio.

    The truth is parking a domain and not a developed site will give virtually no indication of a sites potential and even with massive amount of searches until you have unique content. I have a site with lots of searches 500k but fail to have in 1st page.

    So if you had a brandable domain, how would you develop the site to sell it?

    I still value domain traffic very much, because the domain name corresponds to the end users:xf.smile:

    Wrong question as brands have no traffic. I have brands on startrz.com as turnkey sites.
    The question you should ask is with 500k searches how to benefit as i been using not unique content but duplicated content which is my hinderance. It is licenced content but not only site displaying it. If you have a brand what are you promoting? Now buy generic names to suit.

    Hi
    the horse is not dead, so stop beating it

    which one's in particular?

    if, you keep seeing that same line over and over, then obviously it means something.
    so, take it literally.... and keep reading more threads.

    imo....
