    Finally (and hopefully) i'm getting a team together that knows a little of this and a little of that; and maybe all my open source projects that are half written can begin to be released. :)

Does anyone buy expired domains that had traffic targeted for your website? If so, how well does this work? I've never done it before but I've heard good things about it.

I've actually done this before with a couple of websites I owned in the past. I'd say it works about half the time. It all depends on how long the website has been unregistered, if it is still listed in the search engines and what "keyword" you are going for. It is a gamble like all promotion I guess.

I've heard of it but have never done it.

It would be interesting to see stats before and after.
