Today is the Kentucky Derby, the annual horse race watched by millions. I am going to be attending my first Kentucky Derby party in a few hours, with none other than David Castello and apparently a few other geodomainers. I’m not a horse racing fan, so I may have to stop off at the OTB (off track betting) place down the street and put some money on a horse.
Anyhow, here are a few updates:
- Uncle Mo, the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, is not running today due to an injury. Want to learn more about Uncle Mo or buy some Uncle Mo gear? He has a website – UncleMo.com.
- I’ve been asked a few times about the conferences I am attending this year. I am probably going to the Geo Publishers Expo in Chicago in October. I am definitely going to the TRAFFIC conference in Ft. Lauderdale in mid-October. Aside from that, I don’t think I am attending other domain related conferences in 2011.
- Someone asked “What registrar do you trust for your high value domain names?” What are your thoughts on that right now?
- Here’s one tip to help with your SEO. Try to get one back link to your website a day, and try to add one new article every day or two. If writing is tough for you, use a site like Textbroker. Backlinks may not be easy to get, but it’s easier if you have compelling content on your site, and fresh articles can help with that.
- Great post by Shane Cultra today about turning $69 into $80,000. Check it out when you have a few minutes.
- I don’t know about you, but every time I think about the Monte / Oversee situation, it really upsets me. I use to think that any time I had any issue at Moniker, I could send Monte an instant message, email, or make a call, and the issue would be resolved. Bari is great, but things aren’t the same.
- You know what I find strange? When someone offers $1,500 for a 3 letter .com domain name via Sedo. Does someone really think a person would list their name at Sedo and not have a clue about domain valuations. Sure, the rare cheap 3 letter .com sale happens, but it’s usually made when a buyer approaches an uninformed seller and gets a great deal, but it doesn’t happen on a domain aftermarket platform. Those types of offers are just irritating and get canceled immediately. No point in negotiating with a lowballer.
