IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Saturday, October 27th

IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Saturday, October 27th

Shane’s post yesterday highlighted for me the evolution in domaining that we often talk about generically but don’t often expound upon the concept other than “this is what companies want”. The idea is that brandable domains, be they keyword or made up, are more sought after than keywords. Well, to the degree that the keyword can’t be made into a good brand, but let’s not get lost in the weeds.

This concept affects our domain investing strategies in many ways, but most notable to me (in light of the context of Shane’s post) are the lack of metrics or normal valuation markers used to value or find, traditional keyword type domains.   

Using the examples from Shane’s post, Quazz, Comto, and SharkJuice there’s no discernable metric, that I can see anyway, other than length. Pronounceability is subjective and can’t easily be built into search filters, SharkJuice is only 2 syllables, but other than that I don’t think people are currently searching for it.

There’s still age to search by, but we all know or should know, that age only means that the domain has survived by living at a registrar that has an expired auction process, allowing the age to remain intact and therefore easier to find. Without the expired auction process, all of these names at expired auction would die and be reborn like their brethren who were “unfortunate” enough to live somewhere that allowed them to go through the complete domain lifecycle.

The point here and I think the main thing to take away, is that there are no objective data points that make these names valuable. Even length or number of syllables while not subjective, are limited in their ability to assign value to a domain. They’re like a bonus, and maybe an end user requirement, but they are not in themselves a qualifier.

Now if you’re still following along, we ask ourselves what does this mean? What are the implications of buying and selling domains that have no obvious metrics showing their value?

To me it means picking domains that someone might buy for their brand is more an art form than science.  The “science” that is involved is more abstract, like cultural trends, a broad knowledge base, linguistics, along with all kinds of other things like “brand modifier keyword” mindshare development.  

I just made that term up, but it has to do with something Drew R referred to in the last sherpa show. He highlighted a brandable with “Hero” in the name, citing that the term Hero is being made popular by other brands that use the term, therefore it could add value to other potential brands using that word. That’s what I’m calling “brand modifier keyword, mindshare development”.  I think he used DeliveryHero.com as the example, but there are many others.

This can get confusing but remember I’m talking about keyword brandables not keyword domains. Quick review, Delivery.com would be the keyword domain (also a great “brand” but stay with me 🙂 ), DeliveryHero.com is the keyword brandable, with the keyword Delivery being branded by the addition of the “brand modifier keyword”, Hero.

Another thing it means to me, is that there will be names that are mineable, that have to be found or even created that can have value. This style has a lot more risk and takes a lot more time, it also needs a more developed domain finding skillset and intuition.  If you don’t have the time or the ability, there’s nothing wrong with buying and selling the more obvious choices through auctions. You’ll pay more money per domain, but you’ll save money and time by not wasting it chasing BS domains.

Simply going by domain age let’s you quickly identify good names that will sell. It’s easier to find value not because of the age itself but because there is a higher density of older names that have value compared to names with a newer registration date. For example there are over 42K expired .com’s at auction ending Today at Godaddy. Of those 42K names only 3K of them were registered before 2011, with over 22K registered in 2017.

Pick your strategy, learn, grow and be able to pivot. If you find yourself peddling your hand caught or registered domains on Facebook or spend all of your time trying to sell them on namepros or even namejet and never sell them to end users, you’re doing it wrong.
