Hardest Question: What Are Your 3 Best Domain Names?

101

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?

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

Rick Schwartz Has Made $30 MILLION via PPC Parking

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 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?

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
