Domain Spotlight:



There is about to big problem in the domain blog space.  You’re already starting to see it.  Advertisers.  Or lack thereof.  It’s not just DSAD, but across most blogs.  The amount of companies that are advertising is decreasing greatly. There just aren’t enough domain industry businesses that will benefit from advertising on blogs.  Banners never get clicked anymore and they are pretty much like billboards that are seen to promote and remind the visitor.  You don’t see any Uniregistry backdrops and you will see less Flippa ads soon. You are seeing more “Advertise Here” spots than ever before.  I can see both sides.  I think blogs offer great value to domain related companies but I also think that sites need to understand the financial value they can provide and price accordingly.   How many customers can you bring and what will they spend?  If you can bring in the cash then you deserve a good rate.   And the companies need to know the quality of traffic they are receiving.  If a domain site gets a ton of traffic from Google but its coming for search terms unrelated to domains then it is worthless to them.

It takes a lot of time to write a blog, maintain a site.  There are some fantastic domain sites in our industry.  They deserve the advertising they get.  It’s our site and the smaller sites that have to earn our advertisers.  It’s the reason there aren’t many smaller sites.  People generally like to get paid for their work.  And in order to get paid you have to provide a platform for an advertiser to brand themselves or acquire new customers.  There is one I have found that always works when it comes to fulfilling the needs of your readers and advertisers.  Good, unique content.  It never fails.  Hoping that DSAD can bring more of that in the future.  I used to and its time we got back to it.  Look for more as we move forward with

Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   Easy to remember and nice pattern. Even the dot org is going to get bids   These 5Ls are getting good bids.  EO ending is one of the top endings    Put X in front of any big keyword and it’s going to get bids   Top price on the board today   and    I bet millions of these have been sold over the years  19 years.   Exudes elegance and class.  Like Trump    Not sure what you lost but these guys will help you find it   Sounds like it would be a nice place to go kayaking or dance all night to “Raining Men”    The Kote spelling is trademarked but this can be used for anything   All appliances and things in a kitchen or bathroom are worth owning the matching domain IMO    I take back what I said about RBID, this is the top price.   8 and matching letters is worth three figures, even with the dot net   and   Both names getting good bids.  Education names have high CVC    I don’t see the value but the price tells me I’m missing something


Domains With One or No Bids Color Arachnids have traditionally done well. Just kidding . No bids Decent tech name for $12 Easy to say and spell I bet they vape and smoke in Memphis. Canna is coming eventually too. No bids Sounds delicious Sounds like a place Dr. Dre would work Not sure its worth anything but as good of a name as many I see on BB. No bids Not quite as cool as Thug Life but more people around. No bidders Lending Tree thinks putting a tree at the end is a good brand  Only one bidder.  Eat the wrong mushroom and you die

  1. I don’t know bro.

    Since when do blogs deserve to earn money? Aren’t blogs supposed to be for personal reflection/achievement and sharing thoughts?

    IMO when blogs expect to get paid than they shouldn’t be classified as blogs, but rather businesses. If a business model cannot support the work necessary for a good product than it fails.

    I tried the “advertising” business model with content 17 years ago and failed. Switched to ecommerce and prospered.

    One must decide if they are running their “blog” for personal reasons or if they are trying to operate a business for profit. And then take the appropriate steps to pivot to a profitable business model.

    1. RP,

      Very good point. I probably used the wrong term. A agree a blog is more like a diary. And yes, this is a business although I tend to keep it more personal because that’s the easiest content for me to produce. I treat all my entities on the web like little businesses because that’s what they are.
      And we too are moving towards site development and commerce. You’ll hear more about it later.

      Thanks for the comment

    1. It’s also a tiny bit of the reason I do Ironman. 2 of those girls are Ironman participants from Australia. The field is full of girls that look like that.
