Rick Schwartz hosted a domain investor meetup in late Summer in Asheville, North Carolina. I heard it was well attended for a relatively small gathering, and I also heard from several attendees who went and had an enjoyable time talking about domain names. I was riding in the PMC on that weekend, so I was unable to attend this year.
A couple of weeks ago, Rick “Domain King” Schwartz posted a poll on Twitter asking people to help him select a domain name to post the video content he has been sharing on Twitter. My opinion was that Rick should continue to use the RicksBlog.com domain name he has been using for years, and the people who voted gave this name a slight edge over the alternative, Rick.TV domain name.
Over the weekend, Rick announced that he made a decision and will be using the .TV ccTLD domain name which is commonly used for television and video programming:
For the last several months, Rick “Domain King” Schwartz has been posting short videos to offer advice and to share stories about domain name investing. Rick has sold tens of millions of dollars worth of domain names and he still has an enviable portfolio. Rick often shares a different perspective than my own, and I think it has been helpful to listen to his thoughts and ideas as I operate my own business.
Last week on Twitter, Rick Schwartz shared a video discussing the hardest question for a domain investor to answer: What Are Your 3 Best Domain Names?
Rick’s domainer quiz.
The single question that over 90% of #domainers cannot answer. It’s the first question I ask and it’s the hardest question for a #domain investor to answer, and answer quickly and with authority.#Domains #Marketing #Sales #Advertising #startups #Branding pic.twitter.com/xLpicUr0SV

It is a difficult question to answer, and for me at least, this can change multiple times a year depending on acquisitions and sales.
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 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:
