Daily Poll: Do You Participate in Domain Forum Discussions?

I have not been all that active on forums during the past few years. It’s probably because I spend more time writing articles here, and I might as well publish insight and information via DomainInvesting.com to be more fair to the companies advertising. I am a regular visitor of Domain Boardroom and NamePros, and I value the sharing and discussions that take place on those two domain name forums.

Today’s poll question is Do You Participate in Domain Forum Discussions? You are invited to vote in the poll below and are welcome to share additional thoughts in the comment section.

  1. Hello Elliot,
    We participate in some Forum discussions, that are worth our precious time. Most all Forums/Blogs are loaded with SEM Advocates that are in place because of the Google/Godaddy Duopoly . Hence the Blogs/Forum followers are drinking the wrong Kool-Aid, causing them to invest in their Garbage Domains which are not ( .COM Equimodity Platform Asset ) friendly.
    Its becoming more and more evident that Code Manipulation and expert Online Marketing of a Strategic nature differ immensely. Online Google /SEM Centric Marketing is counterproductive and Counter Expansionary in nature. There is a coming reckoning for so-called professional On-line Marketing Companies, who push SEM online Marketing Tactics. SEM = (Very Bad Deal for aspiring Online start-ups + .COM owners and operators ) The fallout will crush reputations and Corporations. Google/Alphabet will have lots of Mud on their faces, because the truth always eventually comes out. Many Many whistleblowers will come out of hiding. JAS

    • Hello Elliot,
      Is the Go-Daddy Logo secretly sending a subliminal message? You know the Silly Logo that has a Web Masters Hair on Fire. In actuality The Cash Burn that all SEM Platform Webmasters feel from the lack of Traffic supplied to them through the highly dysfunctional SEM Platform is painfully real.
      We use to think Go-Daddy’s purchasing (.COM Equimoditty Platform Assets) , would be leveraged to their decided advantage, instead Go-Daddy plugs the Strategic Advantaged ( .COM Equimoditty Platform Assets ) into the Destructive Google/Alphabet inspired SEM Platform that automatically turns them into a Strategic Disadvantage Disaster. Don’t they read our Marketing Intelligence reports? We happen to know they are reading our Strategic Articles. So whats their focus ? Burying New Online Businesses hopes of survival so they can play their Carpetbagging revenue Streams. JAS 12/26/17

  2. There was a brief period at the end of last year when NamePros stopped aggressively blocking IP addresses from VPNs. Now they have resumed, joining Afternic and Uniregistry, which practice aggressive blocking for domain landing pages.

  3. Hello Elliot,

    Not everybody is aware of the current state of the Institutional Private Placement Non-Disclosure side of the business. The way the markets are progressing they are getting more interesting. With all the disruption going on with some of some of the largest Tech. cos. and International Interests , there is a developing awareness and appetite for Franchise quality ( .COM Equimoditty Platform Assets = emerging Asset Class ) Intellectual properties. In our observations the top 10 Sales are still to come. Time frame Window = 5 years. Hint : The top Sales will not be Direct Navigation Type names, which are currently coveted.
    As you know, ( .COM Equimoditty Platform Assets ) are strategically Superior (TAX SHELTERS ) whose multiples compound Internally without Cash infusions. They are the purest TAX SHELTERS to ever come on the scene. GoDADDY squanders these invaluable Assets by adding them to their partners Google/Alphabet Platform. This Strategic Blunder, will expose both Google/Alphabet and GoDaddy as Clueless Obstructors of Online Business Expansion along with Ruthless disregard for Newbie Online Businesses. They are under Int’l Probes to be revealed Soon. AVOID BOTH or suffer the Consequences.

    It is absolutely crucial to understand that these are out in the open, the ones to be revealed will inflict lots more Damage. Blogs supporting these companies, Will become Collateral Damage.

  4. Hello Elliot,
