Product Videos
In keeping with my approach of using videos to promote the products I’m now involved, I’d like to share this latest addition. Video is the most engaging type of content for human visitors and this is borne out by the people who’ve been contacting me since I began putting them on the Asbestoseal web site. […]

Real Business
A lot has changed in the past twelve months, with the addition of a new business called Asbestoseal, which produces and sells an asbestos roof coating. What’s that got to do with domains? Well, one of my better performing domains is focused on providing companies with help and advice on asbestos roofing issues. The problem [...

One Landing Page For All
Faced with the question of what to do with all of those domain names sat in my portfolio, I’ve now completed my redirection exercise and have pointed every one of them to the same landing page. Some time ago, I built individual landers for certain pages and I parked others at places like SEDO. Nothing […]

Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First minister is pushing for an independent Scotland and a referendum on independence will take place September 18 2014. The Scottish Nationalist Party want to see a totally independent Scotland, which could have big ramifications in lots of areas, like taxation, currency, EU membership and more. But f...

Google Search Results
Have you noticed the Google search results pages today? They have changed the way they are displaying Adsense advertisements in their organic search results. Instead of blending them into the search results with a barely noticeable different background colour, they are now placing a very prominent “Ad” notice to the left ...

.uk – the good, the bad and the ugly
Well, it’s not really any surprise that Nominet decided to push ahead with the introduction of the .uk extension, but what does this really mean for businesses and domainers. My own concerns as somebody who owns a large number of names was that suddenly, I’d be faced with a whole load of competition from […]

Niche Names For Niche Markets
As a long time advocate of using domains to produce mini-sites for the promotion of specialist products or services, today, I have set up a new site specifically to promote a single product for a very niche vertical market. In March this year, along with a couple of partners, I set up a new company […]

The domain game is getting interesting with the introduction of new TLDs, but for me and for now at least, I’m sticking with what I know – that there is still a demand for generic, targeted domain names in the .com space. That’s really where my efforts have been mainly concentrated for the past couple […]

It takes a lot these days to motivate to me to blog about anything domain related, but Rick Schwartz’s new Hall of is one of them. Rick has been a friend and mentor over the years and if you’ve not visited “Hall of” yet, please take a moment to do so now, because here’s a […]

Domain Renewals This Month
After letting so many domain names expire or having sold so many off cheaply, today I was faced with deciding which to prune and which to keep. Given the fact that most are no longer suitable for my core business, I let 75% of the renewal list go and kept those listed below – yes, […]

Delete. Almost
Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to delete everything you’ve ever done online? This morning, I logged in to this blog with one intention, to delete it. The reason was simply that there’s little to comment on these days and those who might have needed some guidance in certain […]

Not Another Survey?
The ease of email and the Internet means that just about every retailer you visit now asks for a brief customer satisfaction survey from you, sometimes even after just a visit to their premises. It’s driving me mad and has done for a while now. After getting my car serviced, I was called by the […]

Decluttering The Internet
It’s been a couple of years since I made a conscious decision to move away from domain names and more importantly, to stop making the impulse purchases. Since then, I must have let a few hundred go – either selling them or in many cases, simply letting them expire. Now to some in the domain […]
David Carter - Sunday, April 21, 2013 - 7:1 The Saga Continues
A name I caught in a drop last year was transferred to NamesBeyond as I described in an earlier post. It was frustrating that because of this (which I had no control over), I was unable to move the name in question to my preferred registrar for a period of 6 weeks. I duly waited and […]
