Dialing It In: Getting A New Domain in Search Engine Results Pages

May 15, 2009

For several years I have been experimenting with domains and search engine results pages.

This particular domain SearchMarketingCommunications.com has been in both passive and active trials for several years.

Recently, I purchased the domain redirection option from WordPress for the blog address this domain publishes from cohn:wordpress.com.

Although it hasn’t yet been re-indexed by Google, the new domain is getting published by and distributed within both Yahoo and MSN search engine results pages (SERPs).

MarketingAgency.com Domain For Sale

September 26, 2008

There seems to be more activity in the domain aftermarket market for marketing related terms recently.

In a previous post, I wrote about owning marketingconsultants.org and being approached by a domain investor to buy his premium domain marketingconsultants.com.

I didn’t bid on his domain, but it reportedly sold for $9,200.00 according to the domain auctioneer Sedo.

An even more desirable premium domain: MarketingAgency.com is now at auction.

I received the following domain auction alert via email:

“Dear Marketing Executive,

We’re auctioning off the premium Internet Domain MarketingAgency.com in Moniker’s New York Traffic Conference Extended Online Auction.

For info to consider and/or instructions on bidding please visit the domain.

The Auction has started and ends on October 2nd. Why bid? Keyword based domains, especially ones that reflect terms with high PPC Ad rates fetch top dollar. There are so many different ways to monetize this domain. Check out a site that tracks aftermarket domain sales data, dnjournal.com

Please pass this auction info on to a decision maker or someone familiar with the value of Domains within your company, if this person is not you. I assure you it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a virtual asset that could pay dividends indefinitely.

Thanks in advance,
XXX “

I visited the site as suggested and found the following placeholder:

MarketingAgency.com Site

MarketingAgency.com Sit

Next, I clicked through to the site as suggested to find the present top bid.

I was surprised to see one buyer has already offered $88,240.00 for MarketingAgency.com

MarketingAgency.com Auction

MarketingAgency.com Auction

The auction for MarketingAgency.com is certain to bring “five figures” to its owner.

Time will tell whether MarketingAgency.com is worth “six figures” or not.
