Two Recent Domain Acquisitions


Subscribe to Elliot's BlogI am very happy to announce two new domain acquisitions on behalf of my company. The first and more important acquisition is This is going to be developed into a leading Judaism and Torah-studies website in the coming weeks and months. is a very important (and expensive) domain name, and I am going to ensure that the site becomes one of the most respected Jewish-related websites. was also just purchased, and I plan to build a mini-site on it. Those of you who weren’t recently married may be scratching their heads, but anyone who has planned a wedding or is planning a wedding knows about save the dates. Whether you send save the date post cards, save the date magnets or save the date…. whatevers, you probably searched on Google for “save the dates.” I know I searched for “save the dates” when my wife and I were deciding how to let people know the date of our wedding, and I know others who do the same.

    Hi Elliot:

    Nice name with!

    I’m a daily reader of your blog and noticed you moved away from a full text feed. I know you probably did it to increase traffic to the site, but a lot of times I just read the partial feed and move on. You may want to reconsider; is traffic to the site more important or is being an authority in the domain industry. I think you’ve developed yourself into a great personal brand and the partial feeds will detract from that to build traffic to Either way I’ll still read your posts, but sometimes I’ll miss the meat because I don’t click through to the site. Good luck. Alan


    I appreciate the compliment about the acquisition.

    With my blog, I am not striving to be an authority in the domain industry. I am happy to give advice based on things I am doing and have done. If people don’t want to take the time to click a link in their feed to read things I write, then it’s probably not even worth it to them to read it anyway.

    I just realized that I could change the way the feed is presented, and I think it’s more fair to my advertisers that I do it this way.

    Your content is worth reading.. If TechCrunch can have full feeds, so can you.

    With you got a TOP premium domain that I guess you should never let’s go!
    It’s the kind of names one is very proud to own and much more when one is jewish. I understand you may feel very enthousiast of this acquisition and I share your satisfaction my friend.

    Congrats Elliot!

    I’m in agreement with WhyParkInsider – it’s your readers who attract your advertisers, not the other way around. For myself, I’m often reading dozens of blogs everyday and its a great convenience to be able to do this within my blog reader. Despite that I still frequently come to your site anyway for a good post because I’m interested in reading/participating in the comment stream. But for that quick scan in the morning its a pain to have to leave my reader. You could place advertising in your RSS stream as a compromise and still provide the full posts. Out of curiosity, are you seeing a big jump in traffic to your blog after implementing the partial posts?


    If people are reading in their feed readers, the advertisers aren’t benefiting anyway. I am not that technically proficient to add the advertisements (top, sides and bottom) to the RSS stream on my own,

    I haven’t analyzed my traffic in a long time, so I don’t know about the impact. Just after a quick look, traffic is up.

    Very Nice. “Save the Date” (singular) is a term I’m more familiar with, however the plural is also suitable.

    I have used to ad ads to feeds. Pretty easy.

    Awesome Domain:

    Totally worth it. Now I see why you were selling some of your other names recently. Good move.

    Those are two GREAT names! Wow! I believe they will do well for you. As soon as I saw you purchased I showed two of my Jewish friends/colleagues. We’re looking forward to seeing what develops! Congrats!

    full feed in RSS with ads is the way to go, I really would appreciate it. i unsubscribe to all partial feed blogs, but yours is the only one i havent because i got hooked on it when it was full feed :-)

    Wow nice buy with I looked into it a few months ago but the seller would not deal with me. Would you mind sharing your price? You can email me at or on facebook if you rather keep it private.

    P.S. You now have an important job with I hope it goes well for you, if you need any help with it give me a shout.

    It looks like you already have a site up on, or has your sale not gone through yet. You mentioned you were planning to put up a mini site, but what’s there now is more than a mini site I would say! If it’s yours, you work quickly!
