Sahar Sarid of Bido.com announced the new release of Bido on his conceptualist blog, pointing out many exciting improvements to the industry’s only social auction platform.

The bigger, better Bido platform now allows you to:

  • Comment on expert commentaries – enabling new opportunities for discussion.
  • Submit up to 100 domain names for consideration, compared to only 10 from before.
  • Submit adult domains.
  • Vote on submitted domains, allowing you to have a say as to which domains will be auctioned on Bido and which ones won’t.
  • Use either “item chat” or “channel chat”, giving you new opportunities for live conversations.
  • Add a reserve to your submitted domains.
  • And much more…

And the team at Bido aren’t settling there. They will soon be running multiple auctions per day with a wide range of possibilites as to how this will occur. In the end, the changes will only help Bido become a more relevant player in the domain aftermarket. So head on over to Bido and check it out!

Bido Wants to Fix Domain Parking

by Adam Strong in Categories: Up to the Minute

Tags: , , , , ,

Bido.com, a website launched earlier this year by Sahar Sarid focused on selling 1 domain per day, has announced the creation of a new service called Portfolio Help. Details of the service are fairly vague and emails to company officials by Domain Name News have gone unanswered. However, based on the loose information on Sahar’s blog and Bido.com, the service seems to focus on the “strength in numbers” concept.

By rallying together multiple domain portfolio owners, the company can use that leverage to make greater demands of parking companies. The company aims to fill a need that parking companies may have by aggregating these portfolios. Parking companies that need to ramp up, meet quotas or raise their quality scores will gravitate toward a solution where they might quickly gain traffic. This co-op sort of concept was a focus of Klickerz.com when they first started. Owner Fin Lemonde was very vocal about the need for domainers to rally together to be able to make more money together rather than separately. Klickerz relied heavily on a Skenzo provided feed and had from time to time faced complaints. Other endeavors in aggregating traffic include Moniker’s Traffic Club. Traffic Club was shut down when Oversee bought Moniker.
