    Think of it as just a days interest spent on a good keyword domain ;)

    10 year return on that? You seem to be getting the results so i guess its a good formula for you.long may it continue.

    We own and run www.redbrain.com that does a huge amount of traffic per day in shopping globally so very simple for us to reposition some of our traffic to this url. Great for internal branding making the staff realise what they are part of and great for external branding so the major UK suppliers who we currently do not work with realise how serious we are. So some direct value and lots of indirect value.

    The reality is probably this is much more about branding to us. I mentioned it to the CEO of Redbrain and he just went ok great, then ordered coffee:)

    He has bigger things to do than worry about some domain name I buy. The child in me still gets excited by such stuff...he is sad but brilliant:)

    I have the perfect domain for you on the shopping theme, tell the CEO to get in touch, or I suppose I can just deal with you :cool:
