Your question was: Do http://www.godaddy.com/ put adverts on your site if you gea domain off them?.
That was my inclination as well. But it will amount to a few hundred dollars in new regs so I thought it smart to double check first...
Any thoughts about pointing them all at one site?..
I think regging them, developing a mini-site and pointing them all there is a good idea..
Make sure you search correctly, i.e., the correct ordering, and no space between words...
If those stats seem correct to you as well as the word order, I would register those names..
Thanks for the replies. I've picked what I think are the best 23 of them. Here are the stats ~ slightly less than what I stated above: WT scores between 47 and 89 (avg 71), KD between 115 and 557 (avg 272), and OVT between 898 and 3086 (avg 1459).
If I draw the cutoff at 1300 OVT minimum - which I originally intended - I would be down to 17 domains.
As for the word order thing, it is a phrase that can be and is used in two ways, one the reverse of the other. Kind of like "used cars chicago" and "chicago used cars" (except it's informational not commercial). One form is about 3 or 4 times more common than the other. All of those are gone. I think I got the last one. But the second, less common version has the same and sometimes better search volume.
Most of these are gone as well but I seem to have found some decent ones.
For some reason, WordTracker only provides search volume for the second form of the phrase, the one I'm now after. So it may be lumping both forms together, which would cut those figures roughly in half. Does anyone know if WT does this? KeywordDiscovery lists both forms, the second form is about 45% of the total search volume for both forms combined. So the OVT I've listed is 45% of the total OVT given for the phrase (yes, from January) since Overture definitely includes both versions in it's results.
So... all that considered, does it still seem like a good find? Would you get them all or limit it to just the best ones? Where would you draw the line?..
If you are talking about city + keyword....
I am surprised you managed to find them this late.
I have 300+ such domains..
Current enduser price average about $500 from my experience..
However, I only sold them to company who already owns web site for their business..
In other words, they pay $500 for secondary HostGator just for extra traffics.
If enduser do not have web site, I think you can sell them for $1K easily.
I've been offered low xxx per HostGator for all of them and I turned it down because I think value will double in a year or two as more and more smaller local businesses are starting web site.
By all means, get them all if you can...
