    I might be purchasing the domain and website on lostplanet2.net for $20. The idea is, is to give it a better design, advertise it everywhere and get it on a good page rank and then re sell it for a higher price.

    Anyone think its a stupid idea and I won't earn anything from it?

    Thanks.

    That is only about £13,

    it would be worth buying, with the sites you have made before,

    you could get about £50 for it in the end.

    It's not a big investment in terms of money. But have you got the time to look after it and develop it? If you spend time on it, will your other sites and services suffer? Or to put it another way, could your time be better spent elsewhere?

    What are your plans for the site, should you decide to buy it?

    Well it's quite a good domain and has a few good reviews already on it, that's why I think it's probably worth it. I plan to make a nice design for it and promote it enough to get on a good page rank.

    I haven't really got much work to focus on except for a couple of small jobs so it shouldn't get in the way too much.

    Thanks.

    Why don't you want to make a fresh one?
    This will give you an overall idea on how things work from the start.

    Anyways, $20 seems to be worth it.
    Does it include hosting?

    Because I don't have the game, and it comes with a few reviews and the domain. There isn't any other domains as good as that available.

    No, but I can host it myself for pretty much free.

    Hosting it for free means limited bandwidth. Right?

    If you want to promote your website then used SEO.

    It's called Domain Flipping. The more page-rank you've the more the bid goes on sale.

    i think that is fine but if you are still hesitant from buying that you can look for other web hosting and domain and you can compare the prcice

    You've mentioned in more than one post here that your goal is to improve page rank and sell the site.

    I've a bit of experience with selling sites and with what buyers want and it's almost never Page Rank. While it's good to have page rank - and the lack of PR may deter some buyers - PR itself is a side-show. If you isolate the single reason most buyers pay for a site, it's their expectation of profit. If you focus on demostrating it's a profitable site and is likely to continue profitable, you should be able to sell for a higher price than if your focus is PR.

    What I'm think is, people are looking for good traffic sites to buy rather than high PR sites.

    Most buyers, in my experience, aren't interested in traffic either if they can't see that traffic leading to money in the pocket.
