Why It’s Wise to Check Stats Regularly

3

I don’t make a ton of money from PPC. It’s in the three figures a month so it doesn’t move the needle but it pays for a handful of renewals. I probably check my earnings a few times a week just to see where things stand. Sometimes I see a nice little bump and other times it’s status quo.

Yesterday I noticed a big jump in traffic across one of my portfolios. I didn’t think much of it because these blips tend to happen every once in a while. Perhaps a company sent a newsletter with my url instead of theirs, or maybe an old news story that links to one of my parked domain names because of its prior usage got some social media traction. More often than not, this is a brief occurrence.

When I checked a parking account today, I noticed that traffic doubled across the board from yesterday. Today’s traffic figures (meaning the numbers from yesterday) are approximately 4x what I typically see on a daily basis. I am not talking about massive traffic but it is a substantial difference.

Even with the jump in traffic, the revenue

Twice Sold for $22k, Undergraduate.com in “On Hold” Status

At the top of NameJet’s “The Drop” list of domain names that are pending delete is the Undergraduate.com domain name. It has been registered at Uniregistry, and it is currently in “On Hold” status until it deletes, at which point drop catching services will compete to grab it and re-register the domain name.

Undergraduate.com is quite valuable, and the domain name has been sold publicly at least twice before. NameBio shows two public sales records:

  • $22,000 via Sedo in May of 2011
  • $22,301 via NameJet in March of 2014

Once the domain name drops and is caught by a third party, the domain name creation date will reflect its 2018 registration.

At the present time, I can see that there

Uniregistry Introduces Pay to Inquire Domain Buy Service

18

I noticed something interesting on a Uniregistry landing page today that I had not noticed before. I was checking out Cool.com, a domain name owned by Future Media Architects that is listed for sale via Uniregistry Market. Instead of a standard inquiry form I am accustomed to seeing on Uniregistry Market-listed domain names, there is a pay to inquire form:

In order to submit an offer to buy Cool.com, the prospective buyer must pay $39 in addition to a commission. I do not recall seeing Uniregistry with this pay to inquire offering before.

This Domain Buy Service appears to be

Uniregistry to Launch “Greatest Product” on November 27

19

Uniregistry is gearing up to launch the “greatest product” the company has ever built, according to a tweet from Uniregistry Founder and CEO Frank Schilling:

The company is set to launch this product on November 27, which is about three weeks away. Frank did not offer any clues about what the product is or who will benefit from the product.

It’s interesting to see Frank make such a big statement about a launch. I thought the Uniregistry market and its Domain Name Sales platform was pretty helpful. I have been using it less because I manage my own leads now, but when I was using it I thought it was quite good.

If you have any guesses about what type of product will be launching or the market it will serve, be my guest. My two (obvious) guesses would be that the product is either related to selling domain names or something to do with the new gTLD domain names.

We shall see in a few weeks.

More Links on Uniregistry Landing Pages (Updated)

19

I noticed something interesting on a parked Uniregistry landing page that I want to share with readers. From what I can tell, it looks like there are many more pay per click (PPC) links on parked Uniregistry pages than there have been in the past. I visited several of my parked domain names to see if this was isolated or widespread, and almost all of them showed the extended PPC link pages.

Here’s a look at Travels.com, which I have parked at Uniregistry so you can see how the landing page looks right now:

Uniregistry Has 2 Job Openings

I want to share two Uniregistry job openings I learned about that might be of interest to someone with domain industry experience. Domain industry experience is not a requirement for either job opening, but it is listed as a “nice to have.”

The two positions will be based out of the company’s Grand Cayman headquarters. Here are the two job opportunities with links to apply for the positions:
