Is .net and .org really any good? After .com, the next best thing is either .net and .org usually. It really depends on the topic though. Sometimes a dot org will beat dot net and the other way around. I like these gTLD’s a lot and they have quite a bit of value if the domain has the right keywords. I usually

Sniping expiring domain auctions Sniping domain auctions will save you lots of money and help you avoid unnecessary headaches. Period! It’s not that difficult to snipe under the right circumstances… Unfortunately not everybody knows how to snipe, why or when.

Keepin it short and simple Recently BuyDomains.com rolled out a newly re-designed website, as did Frank Schilling’s DomainNameSales.com. Both new websites have been stripped down quite a bit and have a nice modern look and feel to them. Overall, I’d say they both look great and in-line with the times we live in today. They have one thing in common

99.5% +/- of all domains are just lottery tickets Domaining is very similar to playing the lottery but ultimately the end-result depends on your ability to shop around the domain during a set time frame and hopefully get it sold one way or another. How much? Whatever you can get… The market will set the price. You always hear all this talk about end-users

SnapNames & NameJet inventory sucking… Yep… It’s really sucking a lot as of lately which I am sure you have already noticed, and this explains the sharp traffic/activity declines on both sites. If you go back to just a year or year and a half ago and examine the traffic levels (thanks to Alexa.com) you will see a huge decline
