  1. Keep in mind you want to keep text out of images as much as possible as well. If it's something like a menu, you're better off using CSS to handle background images with real text placed on top so search engines have actual content to index.
  2. I generally try to ask for offers for my domain names, but I know that in reality a potential buyer will ask for a price right off the start. I've bought and sold 3 figure ($xxx) domains and they all required a fixed price from both ends. I'd never make an offer without having a clue where the seller values his domain name.
  3. I think you'll find that most people disagree with that point. I played WOW religiously since day 1 and while one or two people may have laughed at the 13 year old comments daily, the rest of the server never had any issues booting them all from my groups. Blacklist addon = no previous trolls in my groups, I had them all flagged and it worked quite well. The trolls ended up on the losing side every time.
  4. It's the dyno tune of my car, nothing too exciting for the average person. It does seem to show up for quite a few search terms, I find it fairly often myself while searching.
  5. I can't stand numbers in domain names, for that reason I'd always choose "one" over "1".
  6. Setting up a forum is extremely easy. It's as simple as uploading the software of your choice, creating a database in cpanel (1 click), and running through the web based installation. Setting up categories and basic site settings are done through the software's admin panel. What you do beyond that is where it may take more skill and effort. Everything from installing add-ons, custom template designs, etc. From my own polls myBB seems to be the free platform of choice, while IPB and Xenforo are the paid platforms most would recommend.
  7. The current site is really confusing, I'm having trouble trying to figure out what it offers. The domain name itself though is absolutely perfect for a paid posting service. Starting that up would take a decent amount of work though, finding and managing content writers and dealing with transactions.
  8. I wish I could make a few dollars off of my video. I only have 1 video on youtube right now that is 100% unique but it doesn't seem to get too many views. 900ish in 10 months is pretty bad.
  9. It was a pretty famous site around 1999-2003.
  10. My two oldest domains. I have a bunch tied with the second place one. Domain Name: HACKTECH.ORG Created On: 11-Jul-1999 Domain Name: AMDAC.COM Created on: 12-Jan-2002
  11. I'm the same way. Since I own 60+ domains I pay annually for most of them. The only time I register long term is if one of my sites becomes a huge success and I want to make sure there's no chance of losing it, in which case I'll register 10 years in advance.
  12. A lot of it will depend on the topic of the site. There would be a huge difference in what a general forum can sell ads for vs a specific niche such as this site. For more targeted ads, a decent starting point would be $10 for every 5,000 - 10,000 (real) impressions. I generally try to start low to fill up ad slots, then slowly raise the price until I find a decent balance. This is for large banners. I don't have much experience on what sells with smaller image based ads as I rarely use them.
  13. As one of the main SEO representatives of Google, everything I've come across in his videos and blog site are 100% accurate. The difference between Matt Cutts and the self proclaimed "SEO experts" on the internet, is that he actually works for google and leaks some extremely valuable information while busting many myths.
  14. Domain age matters yes, but the video above has a misleading title. It's not actually about domain age but rather how long you register it for. According to Matt Cutts, it has no relevance to rankings.
