Despite tracking a zillion (approx.) names in that time over at GoDrops.com, only 10 new names have been added to my domain collection (dare I call it a portfolio?). I’ve been keeping busy developing a real-estate WordPress-based site and, of course, keeping up with what’s dropping and the bargains at auction.
Here’s a run-down of my latest 10 domains and why I pulled the trigger on them:
GenericOutlet.com (reg fee) - Think “generic drugs” or “generic medications”. Great Google searches and “outlet” makes a strong e-commerce brandable.
AbandonedWarehouses.com – This is where all the bad guys set up shop and, in the end, where Detective Caine rolls in surrounding the place eventually taking the crime boss and his cronies down. Also, this domain could serve a property-search site…
HomeLoams.com (reg fee) - typo of “Home Loans”
ShowbizShop.com (reg fee) – strong e-commerce suffix making a great celebrity/entertainment shopping site
EmeraldMart.com (reg fee) – Can 5 million searches on emerald keywords all targeted to jewelry be wrong? I am a little cool on the “Mart” suffix paired with luxury items, but it’s still a very consumer-friendly domain.
MoneyCompanion.com (reg fee) – A total brandable. “Money” is a great keyword and with “companion” makes a great domain that could host a how-to money-management site.
SUVOutlet.com (reg fee) – Are people still buying SUV’s? I hope so! There are some obvious end-users that come up if you Google this. Again, a nice consumer-friendly “outlet” paired with a big money item.
AltoonaApartments.com (reg fee) – I mentioned that I’ve been working on coding a real-estate site. These kinds of names would be perfect to lay down on top of that code and seek end-users: brokers, realtors, or maybe a self-listing type of site. (I grew up not far from Altoona, PA)
CreteApartments.com ($40 at Snapnames private seller auction) – Ouch! This one hurt the wallet! Great tourist destination (I’ve been there, it’s awesome) and super Google search frequency. “apartments” works in europe and serves a different customer than “hotels”, so there may be some differentiation to work with there…
OrnamentOutlet.com (reg fee) – Another simple product e-commerce site. Christmas ornaments come inexpensive to mildly expensive and, more importantly, they’re easily shippable. A good consumer-friendly domain.
That’s it! My last 10 names. I think I did alright… =)
