SEO.com Sold for $5,000,000

Overpriced, in my humble opinion.

    Half the battle is already won with them making news with the domain buy. It is a PHAT name but like you say John I don’t know about 5 mill.

    I entirely agree, John. Domain names are highly overrated. What counts is whether you can “own” the word on the Web so that you come up #1 for a Google search of the word.

    If Ask.com can’t really do anything very surprising with the very best domain there is, IMHO, then I doubt the owner of SEO.com can do any better

    They should also invest some money in the website. The design does not look like a $5,000,000 website.

    I never push my customers to buy keyword rich domains, don’t get me wrong, It can help in a highly competitive niche. My web site is goatsmilktavern.com and I show up on the first page for Louisiana SEO, and every combination of SEO related terms + New Orleans.

    No, I don’t even show up at all for goat’s milk.

  5. WOW. That is incredible, I never knew that. Incredible
