The Results of the Vegas Slot Pull Giveaway

By - January 31, 2010 - 0 Comments
The results are in from the accounting firm of Cultra,Wells, Correa, and Thompson on the first annual Vegas Slot pull.  Chad at AdInfinite was announced as the winner back on January 15th and he has been holding his breath in excitement since.  I took our accounting team to the Hard Rock slots and inserted the $20 winnings. According to the rules we played only the $20 and no more.   No pressing or "letting in ride".  As per our own rules we made the pull between 1 am and 6am Vegas time.  The results were not exactly as we had planned with the total after all pulls being $5.  Since $5 won't ev...

The Problem With Moving TRAFFIC Auction to the Next Morning Summed Up in One Photo

By - January 30, 2010 - 3 Comments
I think this photo pretty much summed up the problem of the TRAFFIC auction moving to early the next morning.  A morning after the last night of going out for most conference attendees in Vegas.  To the rest of the world 10 o'clock is not that early but in Vegas it's like having it at 5am anywhere else.  I was digging through my photos this weekend and thought this photo pretty much summed up the crowd the next morning.  It's a bit exaggerated (there were many more people sitting behind me) but still a great pic. ...

A Few Nice Domains Dropping Over The Weekend

By - January 30, 2010 - 2 Comments
Not a lot of great names this weekend but it IS the weekend and there hardly ever is.  Here are a few I saw that were OK.  If you have a few and want to share what you found, feel free to chime in. For more names go to DomainStryker.com, who supplies me with the tools to find the names. NoseJob.org It's a bit of a stretch but tons of searches and nice CPC make up for this .org Tike.net Tike or Kid.   Gets 2300 searches and has a valuate of $2100.  No bidders at this point.

10 Tips To Help You Survive A Domaining Conference

By - January 29, 2010 - 3 Comments
People who aren't in the know about domaining conferences think it's a bunch of web geeks that get together and trade domains and then go back to the hotel room at 8 and call their mother. It's not quite like that, although I may have called my Mom but I think it was for bail money. It's actually a combination of socializing, learning, and a whole bunch of partying thrown in. As a matter of fact, it took this 40 year old man to detox and catch up on his sleep because I slept a grand total of 12 hours in three days, 8 more hours than Rick Latona after the computer crash. Here are 10 helpful hints to g... Read More »

And the First iPad Domain Name Sells for………..

By - January 29, 2010 - 2 Comments
The first iPad domain iPad.de is about to go off at auction over at Sedo and so far the price is a little over $7000  with about 20 hrs to go. The owners , DomainFactory of Germany are pretty experienced domain owners with 314,000 names in their portfolio so they knew the time is right to get top dollar for the name. I think it's a good move getting rid of the domain. It's one of those cases where you are going to get mad traffic but if you try and monetize it with anything Apple you will soon find yourself in a lawsuit. That essentially means no parking. This also leads to the problem that you... Read More »
