Your question was: Webhosting with Godaddy question?.
Stats werent accurate at tdnam drom the beginning,.
For the last month I ll say that they are completely wrong..
Be carefull for domains with high stats but poor history..
My experiment is that if tdnam says if it is low traffic, it never got high traffic after I bought it.
What kind of revenue can you generate from your names with 1000 uniques?..
Cache I m generating from $2 per click to $.30.
That HostGator gets 100 uniques per day and fetchs me from $1 to $4.
Another HostGator fetched me almost $2000 in 3 months while I bought it for $400.
Both of those HostGator had more traffic that tdnam stated.
And the list goes on.....
I am generally not losing money on any TDNAM investments, in fact I am doing quite well with a system I developed where I only purchase when a HostGator meets certain critieria. I am doing my due diligence before purchasing. I agree with this totally. They were never accurate, but in the last couple three months the numbers seem to be totally skewed.
I like domains with absolutely no history, which means then the numbers are less skewed, or not skewed at all, historically speaking, but now...... it's hard to tell anymore. I don't know what GD did, but they are counting numbers differently now. Maybe they have a bug and don't know it. Cache, that all depends on the domain, doesn't it? Usually at TDNAM, when you get that high it's b/c of outside influences or it's a foreign domain, maybe a city name or something, but truthfully, the good domains are getting harder to find there or elsewhere.
I bought 10 domains that one person let go at TDNAM and no one really recognized the value and I snagged them all. They get about 30 uniques daily, collectively, and have to do with colleges, are generic, and I make about $40 to $50 every day on them, so it's not always about the high traffic, but quality. I generally find the higher the traffic the lower the click amount per click.
I recently bought a torrent HostGator there with about 800 monthly uniques, but so far I have not been able to make too much off the traffic. So, it all depends.
You do have to be careful. Betting big on big traffic at TDNAM can be very rewarding or truly disasterous. I have a few disaster domains that I spent thousands on but are duds, but I have many others I am making bank on. It's a learning experience. Once you make a few mistakes, it gets easier to spot deals. Also, big traffic does not act like small traffic so each is a different animal and recognizing the good from a bad is a talent...
