Discussion in '.UK Domain Name Consultations' started by Stephen, Nov 17, 2014.
in 10 years of operating legal services online the .org.uk does work and has kudos & perhaps the equal for .co.uk for some other sectors - especially anything charity, club and legal services based. Destination is good for serp/adsense .org.uk based site but try getting a hotel to directly advertise on placename.org.uk is more tricky - .co.uk still has miles more credibility - I've seen the look of deflation many a time on their faces when you say " do you want to advertise on my placename website"
".. whats the url?"
"placename.org.uk..." "I'll think about it"
So the problem is that only the legal sector has any real serious money making potential, so within that niche .org.uk is ok.
I just sold divorce.org.uk a cracker for the legal niche. I've also sold quite a few other legal .org.uk in the past up to ££,£££ but I cannot post them here so you'll have to take my word for it. Can't be any old .org.uk, it's got to be really good one word service people need.
Trouble is commercial terms like cheap-loans.org.uk are sort of like a rapist in a nun's outfit.
This is exactly where you're only fooling yourself. If you dealt with actual and current sale prices (ones you are realistically able to achieve) you should be able to calculate the extra investment you'll need to finance the acquisition costs of all matching .uk domain names. Multiply the number of .co.uk domain names you currently manage by £6. How're you going to finance for that when you're probably not making significant sales to meet whatever other expenses you have, in addition to financing the .co.uk renewals?
Secondly the "everyones business model is different" statement - I presume your model is simple; to register what you think will sell and hope it does. Nothing more to it than that? Your domain names don't earn you an income? What if the sales don't happen, or happen so infrequently and for such lowly prices? Are many worthwhile sales happening now?
This thread is very similar to the drop catching thread,
Domainers struggling to profit from the new .uk changes... a few domainers making good money
Catchers struggling to beat the big boys... there all cheating...
That's why I said it's subjective.
A lot depends on the quality of the name the skill of the seller the desire of the buyer and the original price expectation.
Websaway - knows what he is talking about
SF is so full of crap. Just reading his posts and purchases is comedic. Another to block list I think, only so much gibberish one can take
Why not ask for him to be banned?
Do as you must!
I will leave you guys to carry on the ins- and outs of how to sell domains. Ive got a que of buyers here must dash!
Lol you do make me laugh banned for what exactly trying to help out struggling domainers who cannot see passed there own noses?
Because Alan would take no notice of Skinner as many others dont
Anyway dont want to get into slagging I really do have work to do, have a great day all
I presume he operates within the forum rules and guidelines, so its not my right to request. However using the block/ignore tool is there for this very reason, so that right I exercised.
No idea. The blocking feature is fairly useless because it doesn't prevent you reading anything someone else quotes and it doesn't prevent threads being disrupted. I think there are genuine reasons for asking admin to have SF's posts moderated before they appear. They are disruptive to the threads, rarely add anything and are often purile garbage. It's like dealing with a 13 year old, yet we know he's well over 30.
I will be shocked if he's over very early 20's.
(from LG G3)
Should I ask why you have those or will I be unnerved by the reply
I think they've been shared around. I don't have Facebook friends.
He looks a bit dangerous.
So has the average domainer here been affected in a negative way with the extra outgoings?.
This thread has got pathetic. Shame, it was quite interesting to start with.
Separate names with a comma.
