Rick Schwartz Has Made $30 MILLION via PPC Parking

36

If you don’t follow Rick Schwartz (Domain King) on Twitter, you should. I don’t agree with everything he says nor do I always agree with his approach to the business of domain investing, but there is no doubt that he is one of the most successful domain investors of all time. The way he operated his business over the years has put him in a position today that allows him to do whatever he wants. He maintains an exceptional domain name portfolio, and it continues to pay dividends for him.

Late last week, Rick replied to someone in a tweet and revealed that he has made $30 million in revenue via PPC parking. See the tweet for yourself:

Rick Schwartz Reveals Purchase Prices on Group of Domain Names

28

Rick Schwartz is back on Twitter. The “Domain King” rejoined Twitter within the last several weeks, and he picked up pretty much where he left off – dishing opinions and insights about domain names.

About an hour ago, Rick shared the purchase prices for a group of adult related domain names he owns. He did not share the dates of purchase, but you can bet it was many years ago.

Here’s the tweet where he shared what he paid to buy some of his domain names:

Daily Poll: Will Rick Schwartz Return to Twitter in 2018?

16

Rick Schwartz seems to have shut down his @domainking Twitter account last week. Rick had a popular (and verified) Twitter account that shared insight and generated a great deal of discussion about domain names. I believe Rick also announced that he owns (or owned, whatever the case currently may be) seven figures worth of Twitter stock.

Rick announced his departure from blogging a few years ago, and he pretty much stayed true to that with only a handful of blog posts since that point. Today’s poll question is will Rick Schwartz Return to Twitter in 2018?

Rick Schwartz Signs Off of Twitter

In the wake of Mike Berkens’ @TheDomains Twitter account being hacked / hijacked and the lack of support from Twitter in helping to expediently recover the account, it looks like Rick Schwartz is no longer going to post on Twitter. He wrote what appears to be a goodbye tweet earlier today:

Rick stopped regularly publishing articles on his popular blog (RicksBlog.com) in 2014. Within the last several months, Rick began using Twitter to share domain industry thoughts and insights. It was an opportunity for people to chat with Rick and read his

Rick Schwartz Sells Property.com

In a deal announced via his Twitter feed, Rick Schwartz shared that he sold the Property.com domain name:

Although Rick did not announce the value of the deal, he did reveal that he will retain a 10% interest in the new company. Rick mentioned that he will “hold the paper,” and I believe that means the deal is

Did Mike Mann Dethrone the “Domain King?”

Mike Mann is not one to shy away from controversy, and his Facebook post this morning shows this:

Mike seems to be implying that he is the “Domain King” rather than Rick Schwartz (who owns the Domain King trademark and has been referred to as the “Domain King” for a long time). I think Mike and Rick go back many years, so it will be interesting to see how this discussion goes.

At the end of the day, I don’t really think it is important who is called the “King” of the industry. The bottom line is the bottom line, and nicknames don’t really matter. Rick and Mike are both successful, and I think they both get the respect they deserve based on how the industry views their achievements.
