Hybrid Domain Flipping to Make Money Online

Written by Trent Brownrigg  · December 10, 2009

I want to introduce you to something I like to call “hybrid domain flipping” as an easy and effective way to make money online. Basically it combines domain flipping and site flipping into one easy money making method. This isn’t exactly a new or unknown method but there are plenty of people who don’t know about it and it does work, so I figured I would share it with you.

Here are the steps to take in order to make money from this method:

1) Buy a domain that already has existing PageRank (PR).

There are plenty of places to buy domains for cheap that already have PR so this step is not nearly as difficult as it may sound at first. A good place to find them quickly and very low cost is the digitalpoint forums domain sales section. But you can also get them at sitepoint, sedo, the domain name aftermarket, and many other places.

The important things are that it has valid PR and is either generic enough to be used with any type of content or is niche specific so you can just put that type of content on it. I also wouldn’t buy one that didn’t at least have a PR3 unless it was a perfect domain in every other way. This is because you can get them for relatively cheap and the higher the PR the more value it will have in the eyes of potential buyers.

2) Put a blog and some content up on the domain.

You need to put content up on the domain in the form of a static website or a blog. I recommend a blog because it will be easier to update and will be easier to sell. You will also be more likely to get a higher amount of money for a blog.

If the domain you bought is generic then do some research to figure out what niches are hot sellers right now and build the blog and content around that niche. All you have to do browse around for a few minutes to figure that out. If the domain you bought is niche specific then you obviously will want to write content based on that particular niche.

I recommend writing at least 10 high quality posts or pages of content. Put some time and thought into the writing because it will help a lot when you flip it. You’ll probably need to do some quick research online to figure out what topics on the niche to write about.

3) Do some marketing.

Since you bought an aged domain with existing PR it should already have some backlinks and maybe even some traffic coming to it. You don’t want to spend much time or any money marketing it because the point of this is to flip it and make money with the least amount of effort as possible. However, it will only help if you do some marketing. You could do a run of bookmarking it on several social sites and submit a few articles to directories with links pointing to it. Both of those are free and can be done pretty quickly.

4) Flip for profit.
Now it’s time to flip it to make money. Head over to or another site selling marketplace and put it up for auction. I recommend keeping it for a couple months before you do this though. But make sure you continue building them during that time so you always have some ready to flip after the initial waiting period is up.

Some people will call this site flipping and others will call it domain flipping, I don’t really consider it to be either one but more of a combination of the two. Whatever you want to call it just know that it’s a great way to make money without spending too much time or effort to do so.

    Hi, I am wondering if you know any free websites where you can see a list of expired domains. I’ve see websites that charge but not free. Thanks.

    Nice tip. Just wondering about the content. Would some PLR articles do and they should be unique?

    Thanks Trent for the info. But if one is seriously considering website flipping, there are a lot of things to learn especially the legal aspect of it. It’s integral that one must know the Ins and Outs of the industry.

    I have made some really good money off flipping domains but I have found for me personally that buying recently dropped domains is the best way to make a quick profit.
