    A big 8100 exacts of Local Monthly Searches, with est. CPC of £1.67.

    This has just gone on to Domainlore, and the potential is massive for either a helpline, or colon cleansing related site, for example.

    Thanks for looking!

    Decent number of exacts makes this an attractive investment for someone.

    It could be you!

    I'm struggling as to why a good single word domain, in what I believe is it's most suitable extension, with 8100 reported local exacts, hasn't had a bid of £50 yet. Surely it's worth that?
    Any feedback or thoughts from anyone please?

    Alternatively bid quick, as the auction closes Monday 24th at 12.45 pm.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I think it's a name that you'll struggle to sell for a number of reasons:

    "Colon" is ambiguous between punctuation and the body part as such the exacts are hard to quantify - if a largish number of the searches are looking for a word definition then it's very low value traffic.
    "Colon" even wrt the body part is non specific, so it's difficult to monetise - 'colonic irrigation' is longer but would sell far better as it has more specific options wrt monetisation.
    If you search G for "colon" there's one advertiser - and they are not advertising for "colon" but "colon problems" according to G.
    I don't think that there are many domains where org.uk is the 'natural extension' and this isn't one of them by a long shot IMO.

    Saying that - there's no reason why it shouldn't sell if someone likes it enough - it's certainly better than some of the names that sell on DL or here for £50+.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Ty for taking the time to post.

    Whilst I appreciate the punctuation v medical useage of the word, I think that the latter does shine through, unless you're some 'full stop freak'!! That said, I accept that the word isn't specific enough to any one particular issue.

    When I meant most suitable extension I was thinking of the .uk's, and that that the non-profit, helpline use of the org.uk was better than the co.uk or me.uk, both of which are registered.

    The .com also appears to be developed, and bearing in mind I'm still a new kid on the block, find it difficult to understand why it's not worth a £50 shout! I guess that it just boils down to the simple 'supply and demand' basics of selling.

    Feedback from anyone with experience is therefore appreciated. Thanks again.

    P.S. It's still there for £50 if anyone fancies it!
