I am finding myself adding more saved searches on NameJet than ever before. I don’t know if it’s because the new website layout makes it easier to use this feature or if the search functionality has made it more useful, but I’ve set up a number of daily search result emails to help find domain names.
Here’s how to set up a daily search email:
1) Visit NameJet, click on My Account, and log in
2) Scroll to the bottom of the left column and click on Saved Searches
3) Click on Create a New Saved Search and enter your information
There are a number of keywords I search for, primarily with my keyword at the end + .com. You may also want to add variations, like s for plural or ing. I like to make sure I only receive the name once, so it sends me new domains only.
If there was one thing I could change, it would be to create a way to have all of these searches sent to me in one daily email. I get enough emails over night, and additional saved searched generates more emails. If you have 10, 20, 50+ saved searches, that’s a lot of emails to go through when one would suffice. I would probably add more keyword searches if I could have them all sent in one email instead of multiple emails.
If you haven’t tried the save search functionality on NameJet, I recommend trying it out.
I’ve never liked the NameJet interface and the new design is even worse, IMO.
But it’s not so easy to watch the drops without placing an actual bid. I have to give GoDaddy credit on this one, their systems lets me just click one button to watch an auction or expiring domain. With NameJet and Snap there is no easy way to watch a domain.
Just one of my wish-list items.
I use gmail and all the Namejet emails are “nested” into one long email. Not sure if it is a setting in my gmail but has always been that way.
What I would like to see from namejet and snap is a follow up email of SALES of domains that come through in my watch list.
They should also let me opt in to receive an email when the domains in my watch lists drop and give me an enom coupon code to register the dropped domain.
Have to agree with Mike. Although this might be a good feature, I really don’t like the way Namejet domains are presented. I personally feel they should have a more comprehensive filtering system similar to that found at GoDaddy’s auction platform.
I HATE having to scroll through countless pages of worthless alpha-numeric domains before I get to the decent keyword domains. If anyone can tell me what I’m doing wrong I’d be very grateful.
Nice feature – I didn’t know about the saved searches function. There are some great names at NameJet. Overall, I like the new design, but it’s a really slow site. It takes nearly 10 seconds to load listings of PreRelease domains there.
I just signed up to NameJet to give these saved searches a try, and can’t help but feel there’s gotta be a better way.
For example, I’ve open-sourced a script (http://bit.ly/GD4UIU) that lets you search expiring domains based on the usual criteria (length, extension, inclusion of specific words, etc).
It also speaks English, meaning that it can return results consisting of 2 dictionary words or less, etc.
I’ve found some fun gems like dealreel.com, namevine.com, producteer.com, shoponin.com, etc. using this script, but would gladly take email notifications any day over running my script. Are there better options out there than NameJet saved searches?
Are NameJet saved searches the best way out there to monitor expiring domains (using a web service)?
