I received an email from Sedo broker Dave Evanson this afternoon announcing that Quotes.com has been placed under an exclusive brokerage agreement with Sedo. Although a purchase price is not being publicized (if one has even been set), the owner is asking for seven figure offers.
Quotes.com is a great name, and although it could possibly be used by someone wanting to post famous quotes, I think the more obvious usage would be for stock quotes. According to the Google Adwords Keyword Tool, there are 83 million broad match monthly searches for the term “quotes,” and there are 2.24 million exact match global searches a month for the term.
Quotes.com had been previously listed as sold in the DomainFest New York auction for $1,100,000, according to DNN. Apparently the sale never materialized as there did not seem to be a change in registrant before and after the auction.
Congrats to Sedo on locking up this great domain name, and I wish them luck selling it.
