That reminds me, I have a number of domains lying around doing nothing -- I need to do something about it right now. That’s great, congratulations.

I just pointed as many links as I could to the site, with a lot of help from a friend of mine. We pointed a whole bunch of links to the page from very relevant sites to PotentMark.com. Some were PR 3, PR 4 and PR 5s themselves, which should have bumped the rank up somewhat. I think doing this whilst the PR update was going on was the thing that helped build it up the most though. If you're looking to build up your site's page rank maybe you should try and get some links from other sites who have Page Ranks. Avoid getting links from Free for all link directories and "Link Farms", they will detract from your rankings. Cheers Eliot.

Even better, you could convert your blog into a WordPress site and develop it like most professional bloggers. I actually think it looks like a keeper and I can see why you wouldn’t want to sell it.

I hope to move into that business one day; develop sites, earn my money back a couple times over, and sell it. My current blog can't be sold, but there was also no initial investment, so I cannot complain. Congrats!

I've thought about buying and selling more domains. I think the most money is to be made when you develop a site onto them though. The marketplace at SitePoint and Website Broker (a free alternative) seem to value developed websites. I remember when I tried selling straight domains and it was tough as hell - no one even glanced at it. I think it's all too easy to find a domain to suit your purposes, so people don't bother to fork out the extra money to buy a name off someone from Ebay. Otherwise, like Dan said PR is a good factor to judge how good a site is when selling it, so if you have a domain name which is well ranked, you're bound to fetch at least 3 figures. I have a few ideas in the pipelines at the moment regarding sites I'd like to develop (including one selling toilet paper - more on that later). I'll crank them out and see how I go. I want to reach $500USD for a site before I finish uni. It'll be tough, but I reckon I could do it. That'd make me so happy. Thanks Poe…

If you go to ebay.com you will notice 1 million people trying to sell iphone domains for crazy prices, but I'm sure really good ones will sell and if you sell a $9 domain for $1000 at least your making over X100 on your money.
