🔦 Promising assets

Again, I found a few interesting digital assets to buy.

Domains with existing authority:

Buying domains with existing SEO authority can give you a head start. Why?

BeaconInside.com (<$50, expires 01/03): although the Google beacon platform was deprecated as of December 7, 2020, this domain has quite some solid backlinks you could benefit from. Previously run by a startup this domain has caught quite nice backlinks.

Examples: developers.google.com, security.googleblog.com, Fraunhofer.de, Wiwo.de and more. See here how the domain was used before.

Domains to build a brand on:

Those domains have no SEO authority yet but are great to start something new on.

  • Showlife.com (<$400, ends tomorrow): are you interested in the show biz? Thought about starting an online magazine?

  • LingerieShop.com (<$3,000, ends 12/28): I guess I don’t have to explain much here, do I? 😉

  • NatureBased.com (<$50, ends 01/04): A perfect domain for a blog, natural products, anything outdoors really.
