I like buying domains based on emerging trends to resell in the future. I've never sold one but I haven't been doing this for very long. Right now they're parked with GoDaddy's CashParking buy I've never earned a penny from them that way. What do real domainers do with their domains while they wait for them to perhaps sell one day?

Is there a more appropriate forum for asking about this?

IF your guesses are accurate / successful the domains will likely develop type-in traffic which traffic will be a function of how many folks are drawn to the topic (of the domain) and their tecniness (do they type-in) AND which traffic will generate revenue IF there are advertisers targeting that keyword in the domain channel.

There are many "IF's".

I've never been impressed with GD's cash parking landers nor their terms of service.

IF you believe you got lucky (in predicting the future) I would suggest building a small site on topic, with you can grow over time. That may open you up not only to domain bidders but also to those looking for a aged site . . with IBLs (links) . . with a bit of authority . . assuming you have the time . . argh, as to the latter. :-/

Yeah time is a major limiting factor for me. :( Plus I have nearly 200 domains now.

Is there a good semiautomated or easily outsourcable method for putting up sites for the sole purpose of aging domains?

Is there a better choice for parking than GD Cash Parking?

GD sucks for domains and parking. :)

You won't earn good money from it. Parking is dead. If you still want to try Bodis, ParkingCrew, RookMedia, Voodoo, Fabulous, etc.

Better idea, clear for sale landers with reasonable prices.
