You’ve got to be kidding! SEDO, best performing landing site???? Get real!

I had 600+ domains at SEDO for 4 months and earned just over $2 with 15,000 hits/mo cumulatively. Now, those same domains at my own site with my own Google Adsense generate over $400/mo. and growing.

Someone’s clearly getting paid off, and it’s not the domain owners.

How exactly are these awards judged / voted on?

I can understand the net gain, as it’s based purely on stats which the registries have to supply to ICANN anyway, but some of the others are quite subjective.
