How to Make Money Recreating Expired Domains?

Every year, thousands of domain names are not renewed for some reason. Their owners either forget (or) no longer interested in running the website. Some of these domains might have generated huge amounts of traffic. This means that by creating a site of your own, you can replicate the success of the expired domain.

The first step is to identify expired domains which were attracting a significant amount of traffic. By researching online, you will find several sites where you can bid for expired domain names. Once you get a domain name, you can begin with the process of creating a website which closely resembles the one that existed preciously. When you visit these domain sites, you will be able to see a list of domains that have already expired, as well as those that are about to expire. At a glance, you will be able to see if there is anything that would interest you.

While replicating the previously existing site, make sure you don’t create an exact copy. You just need to take note of the features that made the site successful, and then building something original which is much better. When you are rebuilding an expired domain, you already have a head start, knowing how well the domain has performed in the past. By researching the topic thoroughly and doing some keyword research, you can start on a high note and begin attracting traffic from day one.

You can monetize the site by selling appropriate items from it. By joining Commission Junction, ClickBank or any other affiliate program, you can sell anything from DVDs and vacation packages to games, computer accessories and toys. You can also join the Google AdSense program, where you can make an income by getting clicks on ads displayed in your site. Contextual advertising has been a major source of income for my blog which promotes discounts and webhostingpad coupons. 

To keep your site popular, make sure you update it regularly. Add new articles now and then. Monitor the performance of your adverts and products to ensure you earn the best profits possible. If you want to build a profitable website, you will do it much faster by going for an expired domain name instead of building a new one from scratch.

I should admit that such a strategy can work great especially if the domain has some backlinks as well.
