Local Domain Names… Still An Opportunity?

Checking out a domain auction recently, I noticed anyonebuthillary.com is on the block. Asking price? $25,000. So, far no takers, but it got me thinking about local domains. Have these started to take off in price too? You bet… check it out:


Local Domain Auction For New York Keyphases

If you click on the link above it will take you to the auction (new window). Then you can enter a town or city in the box next to ‘begins with’ to check out the prices of local domains near you. With newyorkrealtors.com going for a cool $10grand, who knows?, maybe you’ll get lucky.

Some other interesting domain names I found on the auctioneer’s block:

  • bergencountypsychologists.com – $1,850
  • westchesterflorist.com – $4,088
  • nyfurniture.com – $48,000

I went in and snagged a couple hotties, despite seeing no actual bids beside any of the above terms.

Other Local Notes


  • I corrected the local internet advertising matrix. Local.com gets their first 3 ads from the Yahoo content match… not Google, as I had written. I apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused.

  • Both of the local sites I wrote about last week have returned to their original position on Yahoo!. From #1 to gone… back to #1… strange, but I’m happy they’re back.

      Okay, now someone has to explain to me what New York Amateur Invitational Bowling is and why it would be worth $50,000.00.

      I don’t get out enough. I know that’s the answer.

      Cool to hear the Yahoo oddity was only a little blip.

    3. Miriam, your comment really made me laugh. I can’t understand it either… though I don’t get out much either :) . They seem to be outrageously priced and thus no bidders. I’m sure there is a reason but I don’t know it either.

    4. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different web
      address and thought I might check things out. I like what I
      see so now i’m following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page again.

    5. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t
      mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
      before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    6. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog. You have some really good articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to
      write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back
      to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Thank
      you!

    7. I enjoy what you guys are usually up too. Such clever work
      and exposure! Keep up the amazing works guys I’ve included you guys to our blogroll.
