As you’ve read a few times today, the T.R.A.F.F.I.C Awards Nominations close today and I would like to say that it is an honor just to be nominated. There are so many great people and sites in this industry that it gets hard to pick. The other problems is the size. There aren’t very many people and we’ve run out of people to nominate. I’m still going to give it my best shot so here it goes.
Please send nominations to [email protected]
The AWARDS are:
BEST NEW MONETIZING SOLUTION (the NEW company with best monetizing results)
I nominate: Internet Traffic (I realize its not exactly new but new is relative)
BEST OVERALL DOMAIN SOLUTION (this includes Revenues, Sales, Development, etc.)
I nominate: Sedo (hard to argue that despite its flaws its not the best)
THE “WE GET IT” AWARD ( this goes to the brick and mortar company that understands the value of a good domain)
I nominate: TABcom formerly PetsUnlited LLC (just look at the names they operate)
DEVELOPER OF THE YEAR (self-explanatory)
I nominate: PASS I don’t know much about this category.

I nominate: The Domains ( If you give an award for effort then DomainGang. If you just want to be nice nominate ME)

And thanks again to everyone that did nominate me for the blog section this year. It is much appreciated. I am not even close to being the best blog out there but I do enjoy sharing my thoughts and glad to see that a few of you enjoy stopping by. That’s good enough for me.
