    Got a circular from Sedo earlier about a co.uk auction they are running w/c May 6th

    Must admit I have never paid the blindest bit of attention to Sedo auctions, have sold a few names on there but all with BINs

    Am considering whether to submit some names but just interested in opinions as to whether it's worth bothering about or a complete waste of time?

    From reading other threads it seems a bit of a lottery as to which submitted names get included but, that aside, do these auctions generally result in a high proportion of sales?

    If you look here https://domainlore.co.uk/#tabs-5 - sadly you will see that recent Sedo auctions have been pretty pathetic.

    Any auction is only as good as the buyers in attendance. Sedo provide the platform, but it's down to you to drum up interest and to make sure potential buyers are present.

    Thanks! In all the zillion times I've looked at Domainlore I've never noticed that tab

    I see what you mean anyway, seems like a waste of time then.

    True, thanks.

    I'd love to know what is going to appear on the 'soon' tab which has been on domainlore for about 9 months I think.

    I've just put a name into the great domains auction for the first time, and might put some into the .co.uk auction, i guess if you've got some names you want to shift then there's no reason no to put them in, it will be interesting if nothing else.

    If there are some reserve/BIN options I'll chuck a few in. No harm done.

    Personally I think it will represent a good opportunity, as most people that follow .co.uks will be watching. & if some good sales are made, it's good for everyone.
