Are org.uk domains still selling ok. What is your experience selling these to end users?
They have never been popular with end users….I 'd doubt though that many end users that would buy them would know about the new .uk So at least short term the ones that bought them will probably still do so
I think a lot of exact match .org.uk were bought purely for their advantage in the search engines but mainly by affiliates/developers rather than actual businesses already in that field. Now that advantage has been removed the market has reduced substantially.
so if i wanted .org.uk domains to run a hotel affilliate site on, would these not rank well??
Your problem is that many of the links you'll build will be exact match text links, which G has declared war on. The downside is even worse when G finds affiliate links.
I think people are struggling with this type of site.
What I'd suggest from experience is building ONE large site, under a brandable name and focussing on user reviews. Only drip feed in affiliate links later - even better a booking engine style like tripadvisor.
But yes I think exact match .org.uk names are very hard to rank now, especially with no unique content and packed with affiliate links.
Thanks for the info!
Decent org.uk's drop all the time - in many cases, if the keywords were followed by .co.uk they would be worth thousands.
Separate names with a comma.
