Update from the Geo Domain Expo

I have to run to the Trafficz cocktail party, but the Geo Domain Expo has been fantastic so far. While the past year or so has been a bit “bumpy” for the domain industry, the prevailing feeling in this sector of the industry is genuine optimism and excitement. Dan Pulcrano just released some very good news about his company, and I’ve heard other stories about tremendous growth for geographic domain owners.
The pioneering geodomainers continue to see growth in their websites (both in terms of traffic and advertising revenue), and new geodomainers like myself are more excited about the opportunities in this niche than anything I can recall. I haven’t been to a conference where people have been so willing to share advice and knowledge. As I’ve been told by several people, we aren’t really competitors, so it doesn’t hurt us to help someone else.
Instead of focusing on how the changing economic times are hurting revenues, lower PPC payouts, and the struggling economy, people at this conference are enthusiastic and excited about changes that are going on today. While I may be pessimistic about the health of the domain industry at times, I am very optimistic about my geodomain holdings.
