My Domain Research
Sure, it's a hard job, long hours, tedious and boring beyond what ever the limits of things which are intrinsically dull can be. Yet if it's done correctly you can buy domains, that those who do not do the research will end up spending thousands of dollars, for something that you can buy for between $7 to $27 for.
A pursuit into the fairly conventional and mundane world of being a "Domain Trader" is clearly not going to land you the Nobel Peace Prize, yet who knows maybe you'll end up on the cover of Forbes Magazine!
Throughout the pages that follow you find some of my early statistics, excel spread sheets, of some of the actual domain research I have conducted mainly over the last year.
If I had to say what the major concepts behind being a skilled buyer of domains would have to be I would say, it's going after the thing you really want, and being able to pass up other things that clearly do not fit the bill.
Maybe some inexpensive domain is available and is almost as good at the one you really wanted. Maybe you want to try building some experimental social network from scratch like this little website that lets any new user put up about seven links to their own websites for example:
When you acquire a domain, it's like taking on a dependent, or perhaps more aptly a little puppy dog, that needs your attention, no maybe like fish in an aquarium. They require to be maintained, if you just leave them alone and do nothing, they will kind of decay, and not be so viable.
Finally no matter what the experts might say when your brainstorming and you come up with soem great little phrase like; Ohitseasy.com or TodaysClouds.com or even something silly sounding like BusyBee.biz, dont get caught up in thinking too too hard, just buy the domain, and you can always think about what you might do with it later.
On the other hand when your hunting down you dream domain, you really do not have to listen to people like me. Or businessmen with three piece suits, are three piece suits still the wall streeters uniform?
It's kind of a fun hobby if you don't go overboard. If you start losing sleep because you did not maximize your website's SEO, or you forgot to park a few domains, or you missed the deadline on the auction to end all auctions, then maybe the domain game is not for you.
Yet if you are the type who likes to grab up a treasure right beneath everyone's nose, and you still manage to: take a walk, play a game of chess, and get your kids to school on time; read a book, take out the garbage, wash the dishes (sometimes) then maybe you too can play the enjoy a profitable little hobby.
Also if nobody else believes the domains, that you thought were so great, are really that great, as shown by no one bidding on your greatest domain find ever, then you can aways build a few little websites, and have some fun along the way.

Just don't forget to have a little fun along the way! Happy domain hunting!
