KindActs.com

I launched a new site today at KindActs.com, to help motivate people to do random acts of kindness. I was inspired when I saw the “Kindness Boomerang” video by the charity Life Vest Inside on James Altucher’s blog, and remembered around 5 years ago that I had bought the domain KindActs.com (I think for $1250)… Read More »

Big Domain Purchases – Part 2

Earlier this year I bought some big domain names (such as Physical.com – see my blog posting about it) to develop into websites, even though I already have 5,000 other domains I have not developed yet. As with many of the things I do online, this was an experiment to see if I could make… Read More »

What Domain Should I Use For My TV Site?

One of the goals of my blog is to give people an inside look at how an Internet business is run. So, here’s a business decision I am currently facing: I’m planning to build a site similar to SocialGuide.com, which is a site where people discuss TV shows (chatter.usanetwork.com is another example of a site… Read More »

What To Do With My 9000 Domain Names?

I own several hundred domains that have real websites on them, such as Dumb.com, Adoptme.com, and CheapFlowers.com, but for over 10 years I have also had around 9000 domain names that are basically just sitting there doing nothing. I have no plans to create sites on them, I just hold them in the hopes of… Read More »

Big Domain Development – Part 2 (WatchMovies.com)

In one of my earlier postings I talked about how I had not had much success developing my domain names to get traffic from the search engines (to increase income). I still am not making any significant revenue from those sites, but I recently tried adding content to one of my domains that already gets… Read More »

Sometimes Little Things Can Make A Big Difference

For many years I have had most of my 10,000 domain names “parked”, which means they basically just have ads and search engine type links on them. I would always get a few offers a month on these domains from people who looked up that I was the owner and then contacted me to make… Read More »

Domain Flipping

I rarely buy domain names anymore, but recently I bought GameTheory.com for $6901 at a Sedo.com auction. I bought it because I thought it was cheap and would do well in Google if I built a mini-site on it (Game Theory is the mathematical study of the strategies used to win games, as featured in… Read More »

How A Domain Sale Works

You might be wondering how I sell a domain name. Most of the time, the buyer looks me up as the owner of the domain (using a service like betterwhois.com) and then emails me an offer. At least 1/2 the time they ask me to call them or they ask for my phone number, and… Read More »

Big Domain Name Development

I have heard that some domain owners make a lot of money by taking one big domain, putting lots of content on it, and optimizing it to get listed well in the search engines. A few years ago I decided to try this with 3 domains: Ailments.com, WaterTowers.com, and iAnimals.com . For ailments.com, I paid… Read More »

Domain Name Development

I own over 9500 domains (see my list at NameShopping.com), and only around 500 of them are developed. The rest are parked, where I make money from ads/links on them. But, the problem is that these type of domains don’t get listed well in the search engines, so they get very little traffic. I would… Read More »
