    I just came across ranksyou.com available for sale on eBay

    The site has a Sedo stats counter showing some impressive stats but if you go to site scotprop.com or mypokerhands.com for example, this redirects straight to ranksyou.com so it appears the seller must have multiple domains pointing to the main site which is increasing the traffic stats beyond what it would normally receive. The whois confirms these domains have the same owner details.

    If you have a few hundred domains this could be a way to make one of your names show impressive stats that will disappear as soon as you sell it as you will undoubtedly redirect your domains to another name.

    Just something to watch out for when buying domains, even Sedo traffic stats can be manufactured in this way.
