Let’s say you already own a drinking related website and you want to increase the authority of your own domain. If you would go for Option 3: Resurrect the expired website and put a backlink on it then you could simply resurrect the drink101.com website, setup a wordpress site with lets say 20 pages, and put a backlink on it to your own website 😉!
In the case the domain is starting to get traction again, it might also be an idea to go for Option 4: Resurrect the expired website monetize it. By adding some Google Adsense banners and affiliate offers from Amazon. For example, to this beerpong drinking game set.
Moreover, if you want to made a quick buck, you can also go for Option 5: Resurrect the expired website and flip it. Resurrect the site, give it a small make-over in terms of design, install some SEO plugins like Yoast, monetize it a bit and put it on Flippa for auction.
