    I really like Creole.com and feel it would sell right now and VideoYearbook.com is so cool, it probably will sell better in about 2 years, who knows? Creole may do you good to just develop and keep, it has huge, huge potential! Are You at Liberty to say how much you paid for these Domains Elliot?

    Runs.com is interesting though that “s” does hurt the value somewhat. Regardless, it is short and brandable.

    Creole.com, Runs.com and Ulster.com are the same domains you listed last time around.

    Not much search value in the photography domains. You would have to sell to some schmuck at a high price. They would have to spend a lot to market their business site because it is an uncommon service.

    June 25th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

      Elliot Silver

      Did someone take a shit in your Cheerios the other morning, or are you always this negative?

      I’ve had luck selling photography names two times. One name was sold to a photographer who does birth photos and one to a publicly traded company that has a portrait studio in its portfolio. Both sales were profitable.

      Without knowing what I paid, you have no idea if I’d have to sell it at a high price, and of course a high price is relative.

      Nope… I didn’t ask for opinions. Did you read the post or just skip to the comments.

      June 28th, 2013 at 6:18 am

      J

      You always seem bent out of shape, especially when people don’t like your domain acquisitions. I’m sure you own several domains with little market value. Of course, the best possible domain (no matter its worth) can sell to the only buyer available.

      Your photography domains are not that good. Just because you sold ExecutiveHeadshots does not mean that it’s a good domain.

      It doesn’t matter what you paid for the photography domains. The fact is neither of the photography domains are worth that much. I’m sure you will find a gullible buyer to pay high prices.

      If you find a buyer to paid you high prices, then that is good for you. At the end of the day, what you acquire and sell doesn’t benefit any person hanging out on your website.

      Until people start thanking you for making sales because of your domain listings, you are basically writing posts that just entertain your visitors. Results move discussions.

      June 28th, 2013 at 12:14 pm

      Elliot Silver

      If I wanted your opinion (or anyone else’s opinion for that matter), I would have asked. If I wanted any feedback, I would have asked. I didn’t ask. People love sharing their purchases, and it’s the traffic and commentary that drives revenue to this blog.

      >>>> “At the end of the day, what you acquire and sell doesn’t benefit any person hanging out on your website.”

      You don’t get it. When I was starting to make good money in this business, I was analyzing what the biggest players were buying and selling week in and week out, and I did my best to learn from that. Every week, I looked at Ron’s sales report and kept tabs on other people’s sales and acquisitions via other channels. People always ask how I value domain names, and it’s primarily a gut feel, which is something I’ve grown by making observations of the market.

      If you don’t learn from what I post, stop wasting your time here.

      >>>> “Until people start thanking you for making sales because of your domain listings, you are basically writing posts that just entertain your visitors. Results move discussions.”

      I get plenty of thank yous and positive feedback, but I don’t need to pat myself on the back by sharing it publicly.

      June 28th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

      I learned long ago. Domains are not a tough game. I know which niches produce results.

      However, I read this blog to see what is going on in the domain space. I don’t depend on your blog to make decisions.

      We have different goals. Domains are just a stepping stone. I have bigger ideas in motion. I can maintain a good portfolio and not loose sleep if nothing goes my way.

      I don’t have a fortune tied up in domains like you. Learning is knowing what you are doing. I know what I am doing. My domain venture have led me to better opportunities.

      Apparently, you know how to sell some unappealing domains. You overpaid for some, which is probably why you conceal the buying price on several domains. In contrast, you have sold many good domains and acquired even better sites.

      Your problem is that you know get all bent up when you receive feedback. It’s confusing how you lasted this long running a domain blog with that type of behavior.

      If someone makes a comment that you dislike, you immediately jump on the defensive side. FYI, not every domain you sell or purchase is of quality.

      Elliot Silver

      I conceal the purchase price because I don’t want to get deep into negotiations with someone who uses my purchase price as a reason why my asking price should be lower.

      Would you pay $10,000 for a domain name that you know the owner paid $1,000 for a week prior? I would have a difficult time justifying that, and I have no interest in giving a buyer any ammo in a negotiation.

      I don’t announce my sale prices for a multitude of reasons I already covered:

      The executive studio you sold ExecutiveHeadshot to is not even the company’s main website. People are not actively typing-in this keyword. It is a service that is uncommon. BusinessHeadshots or CorporatePortraits are the domains this company needed to promote their service.

      In my opinion, this domain was more so an entrance blocker rather than a marketing tool to promote executive headshots. Your NYC affiliation may have worked in your favor to sell this domain in 2010 to this NYC business.

      It was a quick flip from hand reg to end-user. There is nothing wrong with making a profit, but feeding us crap that these photography names are extremely valuable is a load of s**t.

      June 29th, 2013 at 5:33 am

      Elliot Silver

      I never said the photography names are “extremely valuable.” In fact, I don’t think they are extremely valuable. At some point, in a month or maybe a year, I will sell these names, hopefully for a nice profit.

      I am not going to spend any more time replying to your comments. I feel like I could sit here all day, and you’ll always come back with an answer to whatever I write. You don’t think my blog is helpful, so perhaps you should spend your time elsewhere.

      It does neither of us any good to argue back and forth.

      I just assumed in sharing you were open to comments when in fact you’re just after the traffic that drives revenue to your blog.

      I hope I don’t get in trouble for offering a positive opinion without it being requested.

      Elliot Silver

      I’m not paid per click so no worries on spending your valuable time doing that.

      People enjoy sharing their purchases and I’m happy to provide a venue for it. I actively sell my domain names and the market tells me how valuable my domain names are, not random blog commenters.

    Yo “Patricia”

    Why does it matter if I share my name? You know I’m right; this is the best domain blog to see mediocre listed with exception of several quality sites the blog owner of this website holds in his portfolio.

    It’s like domain comedy at its best. Any experienced domain investor would tell you what is good and what is bad.

    You think people would learn something after reading content here. However, all you see is the same type of domains listed and same questions asked. To top top it off, people ask a bundle for sites not worth peanuts.

      “It’s like domain comedy at its best. Any experienced domain investor would tell you what is good and what is bad.”

      It is pretty funny
      domain investing is about buying domains and selling them for a profit or making money from their traffic either through ppc or build out, right? I’m pretty sure Elliot has done this at the very least a couple times. HILARIOUS!! :)

      June 29th, 2013 at 1:31 am

      J

      Many other have made money buying and selling domains. They also have made money doing PPC. It is not hard to do.

      It doesn’t take a genius to do. Of course, domain bloggers write content that with SEO in mind. Secondly, these domain bloggers utilize tactics to generate traffic:

      1) Asking people to share their recent acquisitions (giving people their 15 minutes to share mediocre domains and a few premium sites with high price tags)

      2) Requesting people to list domains for sale (this is the most popular aspect of domain investing, as this is what the domain world advance – everyone wants to have their 15 minutes to list their mediocre domains and maybe a few premium sites with high prices). Moreover, this gives the blogger an opportunity to list their domains for sale, too.

      3) What another domain blogger previously mentioned (regurgitating content – lacking originality)

      4) Disrespecting people because of a disagreement or unfavorable feedback.

      5) Telling people their domains are bad and not giving a reason. When the blogger is told their acquisitions lack quality, they go off the rocker).

      6) Informing people this is their blog and the person can leave (this response has been overused and it gets old).

      7) and many more.

      If you follow the steps above, you can drive thousands of hits per day, as many wannabe domain investors need to be a part of the discussion to feel important. Furthermore, these domain investors never learn the domain game because they focus too much on successful people rather than accomplish their personal domain goals.

      Ask yourself; what are your domain goals? If you just want to sit around watching others succeed, then you are wasting your time.

    3) What another domain blogger previously mentioned (regurgitating content – lacking originality)

    4) Disrespecting people because of a disagreement or unfavorable feedback. Unwilling to accept constructive criticism. i.e. saying something such as you having shit in your corn flakes. Good response for defending two mediocre photography domains.

    5) Telling people their domains are bad and not giving a reason. When the blogger is told their acquisitions lack quality, they go off the rocker).

      @J,

      It was my style to argue with Elliot the way you are employing here, until I realized that it is much better to debate ideas. It is counter-productive to continue this argument.

      First of all, Elliot is very liked by many big shots in the domain industry. The character that captures Elliot best could be found in Homer’s Iliad. Odysseus was praised in The Iliad for being one of the Greek’s best warriors, not because of his physical strength but because of his intelligence. Like with Elliot, “intelligence” is the wrong word. Instead we might call Odysseus crafty, conniving, or tricky. If you read his blog carefully, you will notice that Elliot courts the good graces of top executives of giant entrepreneurs, and company heads, of the domain industry. He kisses up, and kicks down. Might is right here. But Elliot also does a lot of good charity work to earn even more currency in good will. Elliot can simply invite people to do a meet-up in Boston, just to kick it, and NameJet, SnapNames, big shots will fly in from all over the world to do so. If he lists domain names for sale, a lot of these big shots will simply buy his names, regardless of asking price, just to support him, and keep him going.

      Clearly, J, I think you are outmatched by Elliot in this type of argument. I, therefore ask you to stop.

      Finally, in the experiment I am conducting, I have two types of developed domain names: one is developed for information, there I do broadcasting, and provide information on Restaurants, Tickets, Shopping, City Attractions, Trading, Software, Real Estate, Insurance, Loans, Attorney, Donate, Treatment, Credit, Degree, Moving, Sports, and Hotels; all these are updated twice a day! That website is AcrossUnitedStates.com, not your typical name, but a very informative site, and on the other type of experiment, I have a product related website, which is LinkBox8000.com, which has nothing to do with Google or ad sense. Now tell me, which one do you think is raking in money? How much traffic does each require? My point is that website owners have to remove the emphasis on anything that has to do with SEO nonsense. 100 to 400 quality visitors a day can make you thousands a week. I have a lot of websites launching as we speak that are deploying this thinking. I am in Beta on almost 60 stations doing live broadcasting as we speak!

      You are welcome to your opinion about me, but frankly, I think using the word “conniving” as a descriptor of me is insulting. I work as hard as anyone in this business, and I am constantly learning nuances that help me buy well and sell well.

      Regarding my lists for sale… My top three sales (maybe even top 5 – don’t recall off hand) last year were to end users who I didn’t know prior to contacting them with the domain names they ended up purchasing. In fact, I used versions of the email template which I’ve shared on my blog to start the conversation.

      @Elliot,

      That is exactly what I mean, you know very well that I wasn’t implying, or using “conniving” in the nefarious sense that is usually associated with that word. I carefully weaved my post in a way that came as close to “intelligence” as possible; it’s a subtle but clear and positive amalgam of the adjectives used. But you often find a way to out-smart me in these debates, where you come off as the good guy, and me the unreasonable one. It will only take an independent, fair thinker to understand what’s going on. I listed a lot of your positives, and perhaps one or two areas that could be improved. You are human, you are not perfect, so relax. We all have flaws. Don’t expect 100% song and dance from your readers all the time.

      I am only familiar with one meaning for that term. I will take it at your word that you did not mean to insult me, and I appreciate your feedback.

      @Elliot,

      Please read that post again. It is mordant; you will notice that I used the “conniving” word for Odysseus, not you.

      In fact here is the exact quote: “Instead we might call Odysseus crafty, conniving, or tricky”. He is a historical Protagonist, so he is not a bad character. Yet, I was poignant in use of the word with him alone, whereas you are not him. He is not a bad person to be. I listed what you do that he doesn’t do, and what he does that you don’t. For instance, he never hosted domainers in Boston. The exact adjective used in describing him is “Polytropos”, not intelligence.

      Yet, if you are offended, I apologize, and you have my permission to edit it out, or remove the post entirely.

      Elliot Silver

      Yes, but you did say “The character that captures Elliot best could be found in Homer’s Iliad. Odysseus” and then used terms to describe his character, which was interpreted as your comparing those to my character.

      In any case, I appreciate your clarification.

      I don’t censor comments on my blog for the most part.

      What I see is that you either don’t know how to use a custom domain on your blog or you have no idea that you can use one.

      It’s easy to use a custom domain. It creates value in the domain rather than your blog. I don’t see people engaging in business with another individual running their business on a blog subdomain.

      I recommend using the custom domain to run your blog. All previous blog links will refer traffic to your custom domain.

      I noticed that you enjoy putting your foot in your mouth a lot. I saw the “conniving” reference, as well.

      It is wise to not be a follower forever. People must go out into the wild to become independent.

      Would you react to another person responding with insults that have nothing to do with the discussion? It seems your support is clouding your judgement.

      Hopefully you are making plenty of domain sales and are acquiring the very best domains to enjoy yourself on this domain blog.

      Results matter most.

    @Elliot,

    I have a more constructive topic to discuss with you, if you don’t mind.

    I often see you post that you have been doing well in buying and selling domain names, in spite of the recession.

    My question to you, and I do realize that one can’t bottle success for others to grab, but as best as you can, please tell me how, and why, you are able to sell your names more than, for instance CAX.com, who has many more quality names than yourself, and much more traffic I presume, even if they are redundant. I will list the top 20 or so names in his site below, but answer my question succinctly, as much as you can. It will help many people.

      These domain names are high profile sites. We all know acquiring a super generic comes with a lot of responsibility.

      Lets not forget that exact match search value on those domains vary when you use different tools.

      Many end-users may not see these exclusive domains. Domainers will not pay these prices, as they are usually searching for a great deal at a percentage of the end-user price.

      End-user price changes when there are super valuable domains that command a high price. If a rare domain is listed that any end-user and or domainer see as a huge investment, we may see them paying higher prices to acquire them.

      The data you list next to the domains is not as accurate.Keep in mind that these domains are featured on the platform where many end-users may not find accessible. Many domains may appraise at higher or lower than their worth.

    The selling prices and the multiples (left side) of their worth are good indicators to determine which domains are the best deals. You can usually find several quality deals on CAX.

    Traffic is not instant. Unless people are typing in a popular word such as Jobs, Resume, Movies, SEO, phones, homes, credit score, credit report, and other popular generics, then a high search domain may not always produce traffic.

    You have to check each domain to see if they generate traffic. Which of these generics are in high demand.

    Anaplastology.com is a quality name. This area of study will become more popular with cancer cases. However, It’s still in its infancy stage. I would retain the domain for a big future sale.

    There are more professionals entering this discipline. I read that one came from Hollywood because this individual has excellent visual experience designing prosthetics for movies.

    Good acquisition.
