“The” Domains are a great investment

October 14, 2011

Do you own a “The” dot com domain name? Most “The” domain names are a great investment. Movie names typically begin with “the” and subject and or a verb. Invest in “The” domain names to make a good domain sale in the future.

How do you find “The” domains? The very best “The” domain names are registered for many years. I regret passing up on TheWorld.co. I wanted to purchase the domain name, but I waited too long to make the decision. Therefore, another UK domainer acquired the domain instead. You can use NameTumbler.com to find “The” domains. Or you can consider blind searching to locate “The” domains. Your best bet is to use WhyPark’s Name Tumbler to find “The” dot com domain names.

I made up for TheWorld.co mistake with registering EndoftheWorld.co. I knew this end of the world dot co domain name dropped a few months ago. I monitored the domain until it moved past the redemption period. However, I admit that TheWorld.co is a super domain name with universal appeal. I missed out on a domain gem. However, EndoftheWorld.co is a better domain name for the upcoming year. The Mayan Calendar and the fear of the end of the world will produce good traffic.

Many “The” domains are valuable in search engines. TheMovie.com, TheResume.com, TheJob.com, TheWorld.com, TheSuperficial.com, TheNews.com, TheDomain.com, TheWebsite.com, TheLoan.com, TheReview.com, TheBusiness.com and other “The” domain names are brandable domain names. Many of the good keyword “The” domains generate high exact match searches per month.

Google AdWords and Valuate base search value on different criterions. You may find a domain on Valuate with no search value while the same domain generates over 40,000 exact match Google searches per month.

If you are currently a domain newbie who has many questions about keyword stats, domain sales, domain age, and “The” domains, don’t worry too much about finding the right domain names. Keep reading domain, SEO, website traffic, and marketing articles. Don’t think negative about your domain ventures. Good unregistered “The” domain names are sitting around without an owner.

I recommend “The” domain names. I only own TheOBE.com (The Out of Body Experience) and TheInsidious.com. I plan to acquire a few more “The” domains to build a quality domain portfolio. Keep a lookout for “The” domains with good average keyword results and search value. You never know when a Hollywood studio may come knocking on your door to acquire your “The” domain for a new movie project. Thanks for reading.

A few positive things to take from 2010 into 2011

January 16, 2011

My 2011 domaining is off to a good start. I have one negotiation which is close to ending soon. A high traffic company replied back to express interest in a cover letter domain specific to their services. These two cover letter domains are going to produce sales in the next week. Furthermore, CollegeDegreeDiploma.com scored 6 ad clicks in the past few days. The clicks produced $25. Education and resume domains are performing well.

Because of the anticipated cover letter domains sales, I will be able to cover the cost of registration for all my resume and cover letter domains. I consider the cover letter purchases to be a positive decision. I still have dozens of resume and cover letter domains available for sale. The two cover letter domains are quality domains that I’m sure the end-users will use to improve their performance. I’m not worried about selling the domains because I own many more.

CollegeDegreeDiploma.com is the biggest surprise of 2011. According to Estibot and Valuate, the keywords are only searched 170 times per month. When I first purchased the domain, the averaged 400,000 keyword results. Since then, the average keyword results are now at 1,690,000. The CPC is at $7.12, which is highly competitive in its category. I always knew this domain would perform the best.

You don’t need to find domains with more than 1,000 local monthly searches. Frank Schilling own DegreeDiploma.com, which I’m sure he scores some nice parking revenue. The difference between the two parking platforms is that Why Park has content, whereas DegreeDiploma.com operates on the parking account. Those who claim domain parking is dead are not trying hard enough to find the right domains. You have to assess the market to determine what is popular.

My most popular domains are resume, cover letter, education, and jobs. I stocked up all product and service domains, as well. Find highly competitive CPC domains in the fields I mentioned above, and put up quality content to generate traffic to your domain. Why Park is an excellent platform that gives you many options to make revenue. You can build a web directory, use shopping apps, music apps, and generate ad clicks based on the domain’s keywords.

I’m amazed that my cover letter domains are generating attention. Many resume domains are performing good, but are not as successful as the education domains. Education domains are competitive because there is high demand for online education. Why Park provides you with the tools to find traffic. All you need to do is keep visitors on your website. Don’t share too many links that will reroute them to another location, unless you’re using an affiliate program, or another website that can make you revenue. The goal is to keep your visitors coming back. It is well worth your time to write education articles. Share your personal experiences, or conduct research on various degrees and programs.

Resume and cover letter domains are going to be very popular this year. I sense I will make a dozen more sales. I plan to prepare additional content and build more web directories to make revenue. Domaining is essentially buying and flipping domains in the shortest time possible with incurring registration fees. 200 of my domains are expiring in two weeks. However, I don’t mind if they do, but I will continue to look for buyers. If I have to sell the domains cheap, I will to at least make back the cost of registration.

The domains that are going to expire are mostly NYC-related. I sold 11 taxi domains back in the Summer, which targeted New York City. I made enough to offset the cost of these domains. I have the NYC domains and a few others that I don’t plan to renew, but then I have others that I will need to assess to determine their performance. I know that I will probably renew DeliciousThaiFood.com, BelieveInEnergy.com, CakeGalore.com, RingsDb.com, NYCSinglesClubs.com, DripPainting.com, DripPaintings.com, EnglandNew.com, PursesCoach.com, ScriptReader.net, and a few others. These domains have performed well enough to keep.

I will tough time trying to determine which domains to keep or let drop. It all comes down to performance. I won’t have any problems with my job, hotel, Suisun City, education, and resume/cv/cover letter domains. This is the first time I faced a decision with renewals. I recently renewed Venezia-ABC.com, which is a domain I won on a Go Daddy auction. I couldn’t let the domain drop because it is the only one I won in an auction.

I paid $175 for Venezia-ABC.com. The domain once produced nearly 2,000 unique visitors per month, had a Google Page Rank #2, 2,000 backlinks, and 17 sites that link in. Sedo’s price suggestion recommended the price to be set at $2200. I have no idea what type of website it once was. I had little experience with domains at the time. However, I did purchase various domains that enabled me to make future sales. I thought WebsiteOutlook.com provided me enough information to make a good investment. I assumed I could make $3.50 per day on ad revenue.

As I learned more, I knew that maybe I should have let others beat me in the auction. In my opinion, Website Outlook is a quality tool for an established websites, but the appraisal platform has some difficulty with appraising keyword domains, as well as newly registered domains. The appraisal platform is only a tool, and not a means to determine a domain’s worth. I don’t regret purchasing the domain, especially when it’s the only one that cost me above registration prices. 7Zoom is a similar domain valuation tool that provides quality performance stats, including unique visitors which is retrieved from Compete.com.

Estibot has helped and has impaired my judgment when searching for domains. If I never used Estibot, I would not be in the domain industry today. I found so many good domains on the drop. I located domains that I assumed would never be available. Name Boy tricked me into believing that hyphenated NYC domains were worth thousands. I registered a hundred NYC and Hollywood names because of that appraisal system. I don’t regret my mistake. I managed to register a few domains in the bunch that produced good sales later on. Because I valued jobs, movies, NYC, travel destinations, and taxis, I made a few good sales that kept me in the domain industry.

ResumeServices.co inspired me to register many resume, cover letter, and cv domain names. I found many that are searched more than 1,000+ times a month. Don’t avoid the domains that have less than 1,000 month searches. CollegeDegreeDiploma.com is now making good parking revenue. EmpireStateHotel.com, TicketNUB.com, LeatherManBags,com, and many others have made back the cost of registration. I feel that 1932Quarter.com was a great find. I value ResumeCampus.com, CoverLetterServices.com, ResumeCompanies.com, NursingCoverLetters.com, PhotographerResume.com, TherapistResume.com, VideoGameWriting.com, ScriptWritingJobs.com, and dozens of other domains.

I really don’t have a favorite domain yet. I wouldn’t sell CoverLetterServices.com and ResumeCampus.com due to my plans to develop them. The moment I land a one word generic domain, I will definitely put work into building the domain. I really believe Maniki.net and DeAnza.net will produce good sales. DesignerGloves.net, OrganicCandles.net, DesignerBras.net, and MagnifyGlass.net are good domains to score a decent sale. My hotel domains and job domains are going to do good, as well as all my Suisun City domains.

Parking is not dead. CollegeDegreeDiploma.com shows that a good education domains can score quality clicks. Why Park has a awesome platform to build domains into functional websites. If you haven’t used Why Park yet, you should give it a try. I’m definitely satisfied with the results. My domains will continue to produce traffic and revenue as long as I put work into uploading quality content. Even domains I put little work into are making revenue. You never know when you will find a good domain. It’s hard to make a decision to renew or drop a domain. I’m confident that I know what to do when the time comes in two weeks.

In retrospect, 2011 is going in the right direction. It’s only a matter of time before I find a good generic domain to build into a brandable website. Until that time, I will work with the hand I already have. I plan to bluff my way into winning a future domain jackpot. Education, resume, and job domains are good verticals to operate within. Focus on those areas, and also look for some .net product domains at the cost of registration to flip for a small profit. Never assume the good domains are gone. I find many that are unregistered. I don’t use drop tools or sites. I put in the work to type-in all the names I think will be popular. Good luck on domaining. Thanks for reading.

Misspelled words in domain names

August 31, 2010

It is highly important to spell a domain name right. The value of a domain name hinges on the accuracy of spelling. However, there are some high traffic websites that are misspelled wrong. There’s an actual market to finding the common misspellings.

Every person makes spelling errors. We’re all human. I find myself rushing to spell words, and notice the same errors every time. There’s one word, in particular, that I keep making the same spelling mistake on.

As hard I as try to spell “degrees” the right way, I seem to always make the mistake with typing the “w” instead of the “e”. The misspelling is quite common with weather reports and in the academic field. I decided to purchase the domain dwgrees.com.

While I always try my best to buy error-free domain names, I noticed one spelling error in my NiagraFallsNY.org. The correct spelling is NiagaraFallsNY.org. The exact keyword terms are searched for over 3,000+ times per month.

What words do you spell wrong? Have to attempted to look for that particular domain? Share your experience. Misspellings have benefited some of the most elite domain investors. Maybe I have a winner with dwgrees.com.

Welcome to Domaining Mojo

August 23, 2010

Domaining Mojo is up and running. Keep on a lookout for insightful articles about domaining. I hope to shorten your learning curve, which will help you to register and to acquire good domain names. There are plenty of opportunities to succeed as a domainer.

While I’m no expert, I have enough experience to understand the difference between a good and a bad domain name. Because I made some mistakes with buying various names, I learned a great deal about the domain industry.

I asked many questions regarding the buying and selling side of the domain industry. I changed my frame of mind to thinking like a business. Industry leaders have helped me to become a better domainer.

I find domaining to be an interesting industry that still has a lot of room to grow. In owning good domain names, most company and investors are able to effectively market their brand.

There are very few industries that give people a chance to control their revenue. Not even stock investors can change the course of stock shares. In the domain world, anything is possible.

The value of domain names are soaring out of this world. One would never imagine paying $1 million dollars for an undeveloped domain. That figure used to be reserved for an established company. Companies have been spending vast amounts to acquire domain names.

It’s no secret that domain names are prime real estate on the Internet. There are hundreds of blog owners that assume the title of “domain investor”. While I respect their advice, sometimes I feel it is misleading.

We can’t all own 4-6 figure domains. Selling domains at a decent profit will help us to reach the next level. Businesses don’t succeed overnight; they require time to grow.

I consider myself a success seeker. As my goal is to become a professional film writer, I’m always looking to establish myself in another field that helps me to learn new ways to succeed.

The domain name industry has given me an opportunity to tap into the marketing and the selling side of business. Whereas, I already possessed strong customer service and writing experience, now I have the ability to market my talents.

I will do my best to mine for good information, helping you to become a successful domainer. Please check back soon to read more articles on domaining. Good luck on domaining. Remember: persistence pays off in the end.
