While “domaining” (usually buying up domains, putting up CPC ads then selling them from what I understand) isn’t a business model I would want to get into, Ahmed at TechSoapBox thinks this is one way Digg traffic can be immediately monetized
- Domain registered on Feburary 14, 2007 to Kavi Siegel (cvxdes)
- Website and content put up that very same day.
- Domain gets dugg that same day also.
- Three days later, domain/site gets sold for $500
The really interesting thing about this is because of domain tasting (ie you can get a full refund minus 25 cents on any domain within 5 days) our friend Kavi would have been out only 25 cents (plus some of his time).
For me the value is artificially inflated. Yes, there will be inbound links generated, but the hit report will look a lot healthier than it in fact is and only a very honest broker will own up to the fact. Another reason to buy based on actual income or very carefully determined income potential.
