As the final hours of 2011 were ticking away, I was busy finalizing a deal I had been working on for around 6 months. I was able to acquire the domain name, Sayings.com, just as the year concluded. In fact, Escrow.com cleared my payment 15 minutes later than the company said it was closing (I appreciate that).
I really like Sayings.com. It has a pretty large exact match search volume (135,000) and the broad match is huge (over 9 million monthly searches). I think this would make a great venue for people to post famous and popular sayings, which can be enhanced by comments and historical information about the sayings.
I don’t plan on developing the domain name, but I do plan on seeking out a buyer sometime soon. That said, it’s one of those types of domain names that can be pretty easily built and visitors can help add the content.
What was your final purchase in 2011?
