Lovely sale ! reported on DNjournal.com
wow - don't know how I missed that one!
NB: oh I've just noticed it's a new dnjournal sales page - thursday already - lost track of the time this week with halfterm and the kids here! roll on Monday
That's a nice 300%+ return in 15 months!
nice spot Edwin - did a search too and noticed that you specifically mentioned rugs.co.uk in this thread in the summer. Shows it was listed at a £60k fixed price! Must have been nice for the seller when he received the email from sedo saying 'congratulations your offer has been accepted'. Is the seller an acorn member. Is he one of the usual suspects?
Just gutting giving Sedo 10%!
Rugs.co.uk originally sold at the TRAFFIC Amsterdam show in the live auction. I was chatting in the hallway at the time and missed the action, so I don't know who bought it then, but I know it got quite a bit of attention...
it wasn't a low xxx purchase then Edwin? ...sorry couldn't resist it
We have www.rugs.org.uk, just recently started developing/marketing, ranking page 16 :-D lol
Has this sale increased it value?
Seems to be a lot more interest on .org.uk's as good product .co.uk's are becoming rarer to acquire.
Yes I would say it has increased its value, mainly because a big sale like this will alert the army of smaller affiliates out there about the potential for selling rugs online and so demand for a good domain in the sector should increase.
you've just got to google 'rugs' to see how many sites sell them in the PPC and natural results, huge market for them!
Great price still!
