Use Sedo Search? Fill Out the Survey

0

This morning when I visited Sedo to search for new listings, I noticed a new banner under the header asking users to fill out a survey: “We need your Feedback! Help us to improve the search and thus your experience with answering a few questions.

The survey is being hosted via Google Forms, and it is reportedly anonymous. I do not know if Sedo will be able to track participants who may be logged in to their Google account when they do a survey though.

Results from Sedo’s Keyword Domain Auction

Sedo hosted a keyword domain name auction that ended earlier today, and the full list of sales are below. There were 82 domain names that sold in the auction, and the gross revenue was just north of $30,000 USD.

The largest sale in auction was VirusCleaner.com, which sold for 8100 EUR. Rafting.org sold for 2788 EUR, and PilsBeer.com sold for $2,051.

The full list of sales is below. As usual, the report was sent the same day the auction closed, so these results are not yet confirmed. Once the buyers submit payment and the domain names are transferred to the new registrants, Sedo will report the closed sales to DNJournal and NameBio.

(Update – this was a “Great Domains” monthly auction)
