  • Domain parking is dead and should have been buried a long, long time ago. This is what I see written in domain forums over and over again. I’m left with two questions, “Why hasn’t it died?” and “What’s next?” There are a number of reasons ...

  • Tim - there are a lot of backroom deals that take place but I'm not sure if this is different compared to other industries.

  • To me it is definitely a pond. Too many times there are behind he scene deals like a big player getting first choice of the good names before they are even available (.xxx) for example. NameJet allows certain players to list names and "others" not to

  • Good analogy Michael. I wouldn't say that the domain investment industry is a pond, though it certainly isn't an ocean. It is more like a small lake that is presently growing into a larger lake due to the entry of the new gTLDs. With all of the new investors (many of whom have never invested in domains before) there is a greater chance at coming together into a group that is concerned about tho

  • "an Ocean or a Pond?" You put t nicely.What I don't agree with is that domainers view each other as competitors. I believe they just can't trust the other party. Even if the other party is their partner.Ideally, there would be some "built-in safety"

  • The reasons why domain investors tend to be viewed as 'pond' dwellers, is due to the domain environment. I personally prefer the magnetic theme. There's very little current passing through our coil of wire to create much electromagnetism; hence we, t

  • Yancy, I couldn't agree with you more. I feel that it's always best to send traffic to zero click solutions and then to backfill with Google. That's what I do anyway!
