As BP FINALLY caps this whole mess in the gulf you can hear one set of cheers and a door closing. Rick Schwartz recently entertained and taught us with his recent hand registers that seemed to be a whole barrel of oil spill related domains. Ironically as the capped well takes the spill out of the headlines in the next few weeks and the traffic dwindles to nothing, Rick will be receiving a personal invitation to the “pigeon shit” club that everyone else is a member of.
Whether you agree with the bp trademark registers or not is not important. He gave you a little taste of how to make money on current events and and a glimpse of how they usually end. You make your money when you can and then compost up the shit and move on. As I’ve always said, there are a million ways to make money in domaining but one thing always remains true. In order to get the grow a good crop of domains you have to add a little shit to the soil.
