In this episode of Domainvestors.tv I discuss when to drop a domain and the algorithm I use for deciding whether or not to keep a domain.
There are many different points of view on this issue. As someone who is very focused on SEO I use keyword popularity to determine if a domain has future potential.
Using tools like the Google Adwords Keywords tool is a great way to determine exactly how many people are searching for the keywords in your domain each month.
Remember, you can always try to sell your domain close to the expiry period as well if you don’t think you’re going to keep it. Your garbage could be a goldmine for someone else who has a specific use for the domain.
