    Hello guys!

    I'd like to know what makes this domain (fitnessgirl.com) so especial that his actual owner thinks it costs $ 69K .
    It was $1K one or two years ago.
    And I thought it was expensive.
    This domain have been used in adult promotion. So, it has not a serious value if you will use for something 'corrrect'.

    Is there any way to buy domains in a REAL price? Or the owner can insert the price he thinks it values and you need to wait?

    Tks!

    Why to buy a domain for $1K if you can buy another .SOMETHING for $7 ?

    Are you serious?

    It is an abuse to ask 69K for a domain. Sure it will not be sold.

    Are you a kind of reseller of domains? Why do you think this price is correct?

    Can only assume it's due to the keywords. Fitness is a huge search and keyword value. It's a nice name too i couldn't comment on the price without investigating perhaps it scores well on other factors

    And as I post: it has been used to PORN industry. It is useless for something correct.

    What is expensive to one person can be a bargain to someone else. A domain is worth how big the idea behind it is and FitnessGirl is brandable, I don't know about 69K but low 5 figs wouldn't be crazy to ask for it imo. And 1K a couple years ago would've been a bargain if I wanted to develop it IMO.

    I made a search in GOOGLE now. After 10 pages I could not see the "fitnessgirl.com' domain listed.

    It has no value if we are talking about 'SEO'. Except if it brings traffic from others ways (what it would be a great surprise).

    You can take a look in Google if you want.

    Yes, I understand your point of view. But...

    1. You have a lot of others options .SOMETHING to use the 'fitnessgirl' name.

    2. The fitnessgirl.com HAS not a good rank in Search Engines.

    Sure he can ask 100K but sure it will not be sold.

    You must be new to domaining – it might be possible with the right end-user.

    Why dont you simply try and call or email the owner and talk with him about this? He is fully listed in the whois.

    Or have you already done this??

    If I don't want to sell something, I either don't put it for sale or I price it very high. Either way, it's my choice. If I wonder why my domains aren't selling, then I am at fault for pricing them too high. My point is, it's his/her domain to price the way they want.

    Guys, I respect your opinion.

    But a price (in my mind) for something needs to have a 'value' involved. And this domain HAS NOT.

    1. Yes, I contact him. And he replied me: $ 69,000 .

    2. For you who think that this domain can value $69K (or 1K) I will show this is not real:
    2.1 - a domain that was used for a long time as a PORN website or redirect for one.
    2.2 - there is no GOOD TRAFFIC STATISTICs about it:

    https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/fitnessgirl.com

    We don't have enough data to rank this website.
    If this is your website, sign up and get certified to get direct measurements of your site's traffic.


    3. You can buy another FITNESSGIRL.SOMETHING for $7-15
    As I explained before, if you go to GOOGLE and type "fitnessgirl" (yes, the best way to find it.. two words together) you WILL NOT SEE this domain in the first 10 (TEN) pages OF the results.



    Yes, I know that the domain can start now and as a 'good name' it can bring something good after a time. But If needed to do it, I would prefer to pay $7 in a new and not porn-history domain.

    My 2 cents.

    Yes, If you do not want to sell something.

    Did you try to visit "fitnessgirl.com" ?

    I will show you (no, now it is not redirecting to an ADULT site, do not worry):

    =====
    >>>> Get This Site ! <<<<

    This domain name is for sale



    *******@gmail.com [I REMOVED this e-mail completa data]



    Buy it before someone else does !!!

    If dude wants to sell it for 69k (or even 690k), he has every right to do so. You don't have to buy it. To be honest, you sound kind of salty. Move on to another domain if you're not willing to purchase it at that price. On a side note, I find it humorously ironic that he's selling it for 69k when it used to be a porn domain.

    What do you mean about "kind of salty" ?

    And I will not buy this domain.

    Did you read the SUBJECT of this thread?

    He can 'TRY' TO SELL FOR $10000000 . He will not sell. Idiots are not so idiots like he imagine.

    And like you suggest, if you see a thread I open and can not contribute, go the the next one. Or as you wrote: "move on to another" thread.

    You helped nothing to clarify why there are genious guys who think that because they have a domain, it will cost anything they think it will.

    I love the name...as a domainer I would pay as much as 1 thousand but if I were to sell it I would ask 25 and take 20...highly brandable despite any questionable prior content.

    Your whining salty.

    2 word .coms are special? Really? And why you can not see it in the first 10 pages of google?

    Are you really a 'specialist' in domain?

    Let's wait if he will sell it for $1K .


    In any market you can ask anything for your product. A car, for example. But if you have others cars for a price and you want 100x this price... (ah, the 'fitnessgirl.com' is unique).. Really? So, maybe we can not use others domains (.net .org .br ....) for the same niche. Google will not see them.
    Are you a specialist in domain or in SEO?


    When I post here I imagined people with experience could say:
    - this domain has this value.

    And not.. 'he can ask anything'.

    You do not use parameters. It is just opinion.

    Yes, you helped.
    So,now we know he bought it for $ 777

    About 41K monthly searches (about SEO I mean) it does not mean that DOMAIN had that searches, but that the keyword 'fitnessgirl' had 41K monthly searches.

    And .. if it is not in the FIRST PAGE of any Search Engine.. it has NO TRAFFIC.

    Thank you again.

    A domain doesnt have to be present in google search results for it to be valuable, theres alot of valuable names which are just parked or point to forsale pages, which will have no presence in search engines whatsoever

    Who the hell cares how much the owner asks for his own domain? Screw SEO, SMO and other crazy words promoted by spammers. It's a domain and is worth what the buyer will eventually pay for it, either 1k or 100k. It's really not your problem and crying here is the sh*ttiest way to appraise that domain.

    It used to be redirected to a porn domain, and archival sites have cached that. However, it was never actually branded as a porn site. The redirect looks to be from the previous owner (before the 2016 sale).

    It's unknown if whomever purchased it for $777 knew its redirect history, and it is not known if the next owner will know the redirect history. Does the redirect history mean the domain can no longer be used in the fitness industry? Based on the name itself, I think fitness girl is better fit for the fitness industry, rather than porn.

    In fact what some users (not polite and like the other said.. "Your whining salty') do not help in anything here.
    I WILL NOT BUY THIS S**** OF DOMAIN.
    I am not crying.
    I do not LIVE TO BUY AND SELL DOMAIN. For this reason I came here. Because I imagined I could read professional people talking about professional experiense. It was not what happened in 50% of the time.

    Some user with opinions of people who buy a domain for US$ 8 and want to sell it for $1000 after 1 year and want to attack anyone who opposes them.

    I have looked for this name some time ago and for this reason I know it has been use to redirect to ADULT sites.

    And about:


    I do not know if you are inside an private network. It you are you can not visit this website. It will bring that it was blocked by firewall because it is an ADULT domain.


    So, this is something bad when we are talking about TRAFFIC.


    In my mind, it is MUCH BETTER to start with a new domain (no bad history) and make it happens inside SEARCH ENGINES. :)


    And the revolted members: if you want you can buy it too. For $1K or $69K. I do not mind.

    I am here to UNDERSTAND (as a professional) how this could happened.

    Tks for who that tried to help.
