Ordinarily, I don’t solicit public opinion on the value of a domain name, but I am also not one to reveal the price I paid for a domain name either. I am planning to do both of these things in a couple of days.
On Saturday, I wrote a blog post about the launch of SlipperyElm.com, a pseudo mini-site. On Wednesday, I plan to write an article sharing some insight into why I built the website on this domain name instead of simply flipping it. I hope this will help you when you’re thinking about spending the time and money building out a website.
You can help me a bit if you give some feedback on the value of the domain name. Here’s some info to use when you anonymously appraise in the poll below:
SlipperyElm.com was originally registered/created in 1999. The .net is owned by Thayers (company that sells slippery elm lozenges), and the .org and .info are also registered. The exact match search volume for “slippery elm” is 4,400, but the broad match, which includes longer tail terms like “slippery elm lozenges” is considerably higher.
