DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Saturday 8/9

Aug 09 2014

I was giving an old laptop to a friend and cleaning it up a bit and found my list of domains that I owned and the prices I paid.  It was from 2009 and IF I still had the four number dot coms that I had back then now I would be several six figures richer.  I know it’s easy looking back and saying if but it’s still kind of fun.  It was a different market back then with exact match still in play.  Unfortunately I was a follower back then and didn’t listen to my business mind and instead read the blogs and opinions of what I should invest in.  I’ve since come up with my own strategy that has served me much better. In hindsight the best method would have just been to keep buying and not sold but I am a reinvestor and don’t bring in money so it would have been impossible.  I have to sell to buy.  Not to pay the bills but to buy.  Fortunately the sales have more digits and it allows me to buy more names.  The bad part is my tastes have become more expensive.    Here are today’s names  A million results for this first name.  Surprised it’s gotten as many bids as it has  Sounds like a American made hard shell taco.  Getting some bids   About $1000 over what I think it should but not too far off.  No bidders.  I find that people that that think they are normal usually aren’t and people that think they are different are pretty normal   The love of sneakers hasn’t faded in 40 years  All good letters. Over under $270  Someone is going to figure out how to pronounce this and make it cool  Had a whole bunch of room between bid and value at press time. In my opinion of course.  I think it’s worth $650 or more  At $27 at press time  I have no idea why this one is doing better than the others.  And thus lies the reasoning behind my lack of purchases  16 years old.  Organic and Natural are all the buzz  Fantastic name.  Should cross $100,000.  Almost there

NEW FRIDAY!!!! Working Godaddy Domain Code of the day. 33% off new purchases. Great for new gTLDs CJCRMN33    Too things I love TV and LA  Also great letters.  16 years old  I knew this would get a few bids  Every town has a town a tire center   Nice to see a 5L getting some love  Somebody must know how to monetize these things because the payday loan names always have a good number of bids  Build it and I will visit.  Didn’t think it would get more than 50 bids.  Was wrong Someone will have to explain all the bids here.  I’m only getting in line because there IS a line. Don’t know why everyone’s in it

Have a name at auction and need more exposure? Send me an email. We may be able to help. If you have an auction you want to promote, email us for details. *All names chosen by me, Shane, and the goal of this list is to have all links be paid through commission . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct.
