PoleApples.com and MostBlocked.com. I don’t usually hand register names. Sure , I’ve hand registered some names for my sites because sites like this one don’t need category killer names and domainshane obviously wasn’t a very sought after name. It’s not that I don’t think there’s money to be made, it’s that I think the only way to make “good” money to hit a hot trend early and I just don’t have the time to do it right. Instead of wasting my time and money I just stick to aged dot coms. But every once in a while I use a coupon and register a name. Yesterday I registered MostBlocked.com after reading Sahar’s article on Google’s new domain blocking toolbar. I truly think this is the future of search and I can see people sharing their blocked list with other people they trust. As groups of friends combine their list they will essential build a spam free Google. Google is going to let users clean up the spam, wiki style. I also see Google gathering this data and sharing, essentially creating a Google’s “most blocked” list.
As for Pole Apples. There are going to be the future of apple trees and maybe fruit in general. Pole apples are apple trees that only get 10 feet tall and 3 feet wide. They bare 30-50 apples each year, just enough for a family without taking up all the space of a big apple tree. I saw my first batch on a recent “plant exploration” trip and I am sold. I only have 30 this year because of their rarity but that will soon change and I think they sell like hotcakes. Of course being the domainer that I am, I registered the domain within seconds of seeing the pole apples. Look for me to be the pole apple king soon.
I can guarantee I will make a ton of money on these names. MostBlocked.com should make me $1 a year and PoleApple and PoleApples.com will make me thousands and I’ll be eating the fruit of my hand regs. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
