Interesting, found this on digg: Only 30% Of Top Domains Sold In 2006 Actually In Use
Lyrics.co.uk $80,000.00 PPC - that still makes me chuckle. What were they thinking? :mrgreen:
Is it possible that the fees involved on making some of these sales look genuine, were covered by the publicity generated?
When it was sold it was making 50 euros a day parked if I remember correctly which works out at 4 years rev. paid. Doesn't seem so crazy to me??
@ firestars - yup, maybe though, some of the mentioned domains need more time for development or whatever they intend to do with them?
@FC Domains - Yes, I was thinking that myself, but that is a calculated risk, so how much publicity did (or do) they get for their money?
Agreed - shaun is a bloke who knows what hes doing.
I am not sure why there has the be doubt over big figures, perhaps some names are worth lots?!
I think the best point on there is about it showing that this market is currently (on the whole) domainer to domainer.
Which is most likely to be visited by your target audience (teenage girl)
why is that the target audience?
Lets have a fight about it Google Fight : Make this fight with googleFight lyrics VS song words
whois says a bloke called Martyn owns it in Canada. Is it possible it sold again?
Also traffic is a nice thing but can be unpredicatable. imo a huge amount to spend on this domain, i know parking could recoup in a number of years but traffic can go walkies.
Who would you say the target audience is?
Who would be searching for song words on the tinternet?
Teenage girls and divorced middle-aged women, thats my guess.
