Hi,

Instead of “domainers attending all these domain auctions….Maybe it would be a good or better idea to start attending conferences like this:
http://www.ppcsummit.com/location-los-angeles.html

The same works the other way….The people at this conference (PPC Summit) All should attend say the next domainfest and other domain conferences.

Its a shame that “domain auctions” seem to be taken over…and is becoming the “focus” of the domain industry….rather than trying to build something at little bigger and stronger….than individual domain purchases.

I was there this morning for about 3 hours….I had to make a choice between conferences….So I am attending a ‘specific’ one on Monday Oct 6 & 7…because it is related to a big part of my domain holdings 60+% of my domains.

Huge turnout…people where coming in from all over the country.

But for gods sakes…these people would be a great network for “Generic Domain Asset Holders”.

Bottom line….they should be going to domain conferences and we should be going to PPC/SEO/SEM/Content conferences.

Not just holding domain auctions.

Peace,
Dan

Nice to see some solid cash for good generic combo’s. financialaid.com for $800,000, WOW!!!
And yes Dan, your bang on. Generic holders and the ppc/ad industry should combine conferences and create an advertising wallyworld.

Best Regards.

FinancialAid.com $800,000 good work Monte – I thought the auction was a good result. The move to generics will grow as the financial sector struggles. The demand for generics as an advertising medium will soar as business see the potential and power of generic directory domain names.

Hi,

“Generic holders and the ppc/ad industry should combine conferences and create an advertising wallyworld.”

I LIKE IT! Well said!

Peace,
Dan

BTW: Then the “real” domain sales can start…more sales & bigger prices as a whole.

We need to get too the point…that “domain auctions”… become almost a thing of the past…Domainers/PPC Advertisers/Madison Ave/Search engines have to ALL get on the same page….24/7/365….not just ‘here and there’….like firing of WIPO’s now and then or offering $275,000 for domain and then recanting because they feel its too much money…LOL. A domain… worth much more to someone else (Over $300,000) and millions to the Dallas Cowboys.

This “disconnect” has to end….and its never going to end with the way most of the domain industry is now.

Just my: IMHO

Peace,
Dan

I hope buyers and sellers got what they wanted and expected from this Auction.

I thought that today was a pretty good showing. Great work Monte & moniker team!

Maybe all generic domaineers could pool their domains together in individual service/category directories. The companies wanting to utilize these domains would pay so much for the ad program. All participating domaineers in that category/service would split the ad cash based on verified traffic to the customer/enduser. If boots.com brings in more traffic than boots.cc then .com would get that portion of the ad cash and .cc the rest. 50% of the traffic = 50% of the cash(minus the ad site 5%.)
A small percentage 5% maybe would go the the system to promote and expand it. Domaineers and the customers that want to utilize these amazing advertising vehicles (domain names) could deal directly with a co-op organization focused on giving domain name owners and advertisers excellent value for the money and be able to track and verify the traffic.
Cut out google/yahoo/blah/blah/ from the equation.
Start a new advertising/media network that google/yahoo etc will pay to be a part of. Let’s reverse the tables and form a co-op based on quality generic single and combo words in all languages. once the idn domain market breaks open the advertising opportunities will be even more unbelievable than they are today for everyone involved.
just a thought.

Best.

Its been so “backwords” for the last 6+ years…it just blows my mind. Internet marketing,SEO,SEM,Search,domaining…and on an on.

genericinvestor….your post is much more than “just a thought”. It will prove true in the coming months and years.

I feel like the Internet world….is/has turned to a “gridlock” Congress type BS Government.

Nice…post…thanks for doing some “forward thinking”!!

Peace,

.net to be in high demand ? enter caryards in the browser bar hit shift and enter on your key board at the same time, and it will go to caryards.net – I must point out that I have it as a pointer at this stage, .net works on the key board like a .com – e.g. caryards hit control and enter at the same time and it will only go to caryards.com

Dan Sias,

The auctioning of domain names focuses on generic/structured domain names (i.e. FinancialAid.com, PanamaCityBeach.com, NewYorkCity.com., Insurance.com, AidsResearch.com) not loosely put together domains, (CarMotorsToday.com, CatBreeder4u.com, etc) and with that, search engine placement isn’t important, resulting from the FACT that the consumer has been trained to type WhatDoYouWant.com (Yes, .com!)… For that matter BILLIONS of dollars has been spent to train the consumer… every time you watch the weather channel, guess what… Weather.com or fox news… FoxNews.com. So placement in the search engine is less important then the generic of the domain name. And further to this, today you might be on the top of the search engine but you can not guarantee that tomorrow, can you? No one can for that matter, so search engine placement is great and everything but means little in the larger picture of a Domainer.

Sorry if this comes across rough… I hear this all of the time with people with loss domain names.

Regards,
CMason

Note that the domain FinancialAidZone.com is currently in auction at SEDO. The domain receives in excess of 100 visitors monthly and per SEO Book the phrase “financial aid” is searched for hundreds of times daily. If interested in this domain…

Domaineering Domain Advertising

December 28, 2008 @ 12:15 pm EDT

Domaineering is the web-based marketing business of acquiring and monetizing Internet domain names for their use specifically as an advertising medium rather than primarily speculating on domains as intellectual property investments for resale as in domaining where generating advertising revenue is considered more of a bonus while awaiting a sale. In essence, the domain names function as virtual Internet billboards with generic domain names being highly valued for their revenue generating potential derived from attracting Internet traffic hits. Revenue is earned as potential customers view pay per click ( PPC ) ads or the Internet traffic attracted may be redirected to another website. Hence, the domain name itself is the revenue generating asset conveying information beyond just functioning as a typical web address. As the value here is intrinsically in the domain name and not in a website’s products or services, these domains are “parked” and not intended to be developed into conventional websites. As with traditional advertising, domaineering is part art and part science. Often to be the most effective as an advertising tool, the domain names and their corresponding landing pages must be engineered or optimized to produce maximum revenue which may require considerable skill and keen knowledge of search engine optimization ( SEO ) practices, marketing psychology and an understanding of the target market audience. Domaineering generally utilizes a firm offering domain parking services to provide the sponsored “feed” of a word or phrase searched for thus creating a mini-directory populated largely by advertisers paying to promote their products and services under a relevant generic keyword domain. Occasionally content is added to develop a functional mini-website. Domaineers and some of those who advertise online using keywords believe domaineering provides a useful, legal and legitimate Internet marketing service while opponents of domaineering decry the practice as increasing the ubiquitous commercialization of the world wide web. Domaineering aka “domain advertising” is practiced by both large organizations which may have registered hundreds or even thousands of domains to individual entrepreneurial minded domaineers who may only own one or a few. The earliest known verifiable identification and defining of domaineering as a distinct Internet advertising practice is attributed to Canadian Professor William Lorenz.
