Before You Buy a Domain: How to Do Your SEO Due Diligence

Before I get into the specifics of how to do SEO due diligence on a domain name, let’s look at recent real-world example of a great domain name–but how the domain’s past eventually hurt a business.

Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk Hacked, Hosting Malware on Site

It looks like Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk, the search engine for domain names, has been hacked, and apparently is hosting malware on their web site. These messages started appearing to visitors of both Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk within the past 24 hours, and I have verified that users are still getting these messages.

The Frager Factor: Seller Schilling, Meet Buyer Whiteley: Ta

“I hadn’t dealt with Frank before and didn’t know who I was dealing with. The prices were high – but they are good domain names and I should get good returns by using them. I think the fascinating thing at the moment is that there still isn’t really a fixed way of valuing a domain yet.”

Most Popular Baby Names of 2011 Domain Names Available

BabyCenter has revealed the most popular baby names of 2011. I am not surprised by the names–and even had a relative with a new baby this year name her baby Chloe, which made the list this year. Here is the list of the most popular baby names of 2011:

Google Acquires Illegal Google Plus .com IDN Domain Name

In an effort to protect their Google Plus social network, Google recently acquired .com. The problem is that .com, aka xn--dra.com is not allowed. It s an illegal domain name. IDN characters are not allowed or available in the .com TLD. Google, what were you thinking when you purchased this IDN .com domain name? I hope you did not pay too much f

Conde Nast Purchases 285 Reddit Domain Names

When large groups of domain names are purchased such as the one I came across today, most of the time it indicates that the company purchasing them has major plans in the works. That happened today, when I was alerted to the fact that Conde Nast Digital, the folks behind the popular Reddit website, purchased a few hundred domain names. These are no

Microsoft Moves Synsup Labs Domain Names

In April 2011 I first reported that Microsoft had acquired 47 domain names related to something (a brand or a company) named Synsup Labs. Those domain names had previously been pointed to the Bing.com search results. Now, the total number of domain names related to Synsup Labs that Microsoft owns is an even 50 domain names, and a name server has be

Microsoft Acquires 47 SynsupLabs Domain Names

In an interesting acquisition today by Microsoft, the company acquired 47 domain names and has pointed them to the Bing.com search engine. I usually watch the list of Microsoft domain names and have not seen such a large acquisition of new domain names in a long time. Perhaps this is the indication of a new product, a new service, or upcoming proje

Consider Alternate Spellings of a Domain

One thing I think about when evaluating domain names to purchase is the possibility that there are alternative spellings to the domain names - both accepted spellings and common typos.

Google second search box raises issues

When I heard about Google ss offering of a second search box in major retail sites that allow users to search within the domain itself, I immediately thought it was another way for Google to display ads, earn even more revenue and kick the competition to the sidelines. I was right - but not all are too happy about it.

Great Domain Name Strategy: Vacations To Go

Travel planning company Vacations To Go employs one of the finest domain strategies I have seen. The company owns some fantastic niche travel domain names, allowing them to avoid paying high pay per click costs.

Domain Name Acquisition is Tricky Business

Personally I don’t see Network Solutions behavior as offensive as some others playing in the space, because they are merely attaching themselves to a domain that was initially checked through their interface, and offering it at their regular (inflated) price. They could say they are assisting the customer by reserving it temporarily on behalf of the Network Solutions customer who has expressed interest. If they allow it to drop in 4 days or so, the behavior is more of a shame than criminal.
