Sedo Using “Facebook-esque” Landing Pages
A friend sent me the link to a Sedo parked landing page, and I think it’s interesting to see. I haven’t come across a similar Sedo lander, so I assume it’s either a test or something the company recently launched for parking clients.
I don’t want to link to the parked page because of TOS issues, but as you can see in the screenshot, the landing page for FairCredit.com has the look and feel of a Facebook page. I would imagine it could pose some additional risk for trademark and/or typo domain names since that can appear a bit misleading. For instance, if you owned Facebok.com and used a lander like this, it would be confusing to visitors.
From my perspective, this is probably a high performing landing page because people who are accustomed to visiting Facebook pages will likely instinctively recognize the layout and navigation. It’s reminiscent of the survey landing pages that look similar to big brands like Facebook and Google, but it’s obviously not collecting personal information from visitors like those surveys.
Has anyone else seen similar Sedo landing pages? What are your thoughts on them?
Thanks to NameBio for the tip.
