Wow That Was Fast

By - August 31, 2010 - 14 Comments
First of all let me point out this is not a paid post.  If you read my blog you'll know I shoot straight from the hip and say it just as I see it. Good and Bad.  I'm the first to criticize and the first to praise.  Today I have praise for Rob Monster and Epik. Rob has gotten used to my constant emails getting on him about things I'd like to see with my domains.  To make it worse on Rob, I only had two with him.  Yet despite my rants and raves, Rob always answers and does his best to make it right or at least give me an answer as to why.  Would I like to see improvement?  Sure,  so would he, ...

Tuesday’s Daily Dropping Domains And Auctions

By - August 31, 2010 - 0 Comments
Yesterday, DomainShane hit 100K uniques.  I'm sure some of the bigger domain blogs get that in a week or month (I used to get that on a good DAY at my old blog) but for me I'm proud.  I have a lot more fun and domaining in me so I'm going to keep humping it. Now onto the names. Not very much on the board today but that's been more the rule than the exception PR6 and tons of bidders. PR6s don't come around very often and thus the high price Before you click, guess what you think this domain is up to at the auction.  Now look.........WOW!  Loved the name but too rich for my ...

As a website developer there are many things we think of when designing a site.  We want it to be nice looking, user friendly, full of good content, and optimized for revenue generation.  There actually needs to be one thing that moves in front of those two, load time.  All data points to the following.  Users are not patient.  They will not wait for more than four seconds and will simply leave if they deem a site too slow.  In today's era of fast connection speeds, their patience is less and less. Here's what Google found The Effects of Slow Download Times Even small changes in response ti... Read More »

Digg Commits Suicide and A Former Internet PowerHouse Fades Away

By - August 30, 2010 - 6 Comments
Do you hear that sound?  That's the sound of the Venture Capitalists  invested in Digg being hit in the stomach.  That nauseous feeling they all have in their stomach is caused from the recent change of Digg from it's original design of user submitted content to it's new look filled with major publisher content.  A move that has single handedly ended the popularity of the site in one week. It looked like a great move.  Revamp the site, integrate major online publishers with the user submitted ( I use "user" lightly, it was always power users) content, and make a little more money.  The result i...

Let’s Take a Look at the Top 50 Startups and Their Domains

By - August 28, 2010 - 7 Comments
I often feel that domainers put way too much emphasis on a domain name and it's relation to a company's success.   I am a businessman first and a domain investor second.  A domain to me is merely a tool to reach potential customers for my business.  I can really get a feel of the importance of domains by looking at new tech/Internet startups.  Startups meaning newly created companies or companies with limited operating history.  These companies were created in the recent era of the Internet and chose names based availability is today's domain climate.  Like any company, their internet presence is...
