The Daily Sales Recap will be retiring and a daily post Inside the Numbers will take its place.
I had been having some thoughts about the daily sales recap, I then discussed those thoughts with a couple people I talk to regularly. Along with my thoughts I had an email from someone who said what I had been thinking for a little while. They said they didn’t care about $109 sales or a nonsensical .org like 2012hmp-global closing at $275 for some backlink bs. Talk more about the names that people care about, big sales and liquid names.
A recent article from Theo at Acro.net added more incentive to make the change, Theo talked about how a lot of sales in Go Daddy in particular are bogus. I have made the distinction on the Daily Sales Recap between sold and closed, because there are just so many auctions that don’t get paid for. A name is reported to be closed or sold depending on the website, and then the owner transfers to another registrar, the auction result still has some value, but it can’t stand as a given that it closed. I think there now will be a second step added for someone interested in a particular name, check the closing price and then check the whois history to see if the name changed hands around the time the auction closed.
So we are still going to report things but with the explicit disclaimer that if it does not say sold, you may have to check the whois history to make sure. People are not going to need this on every name, it matters most when you have a comparable name and want to use that data in the hopes to influence a decision.
Another thing just from the writer’s standpoint is that it really is mental masturbation to track a bunch of sales at the lower levels and they are actually bogus.
People care about 2,3,4 and even 5 letter .coms so those will always be included. The big sales/closes of course, and certain trends or patterns that take place for that day.
Another thing I want to look at is what doesn’t sell, tracking names especially on NameJet and Go Daddy that didn’t meet reserve, looking at how high auctions ran, compare them to similar names closing that day, etc…
I will also include the Go Daddy public auctions of which we have been the only one to track, along with the numerical and mixed LLnnnnn Go Daddy auctions.
Going to list auctions in the cheap, bargain basement category where I think the buyer made an good buy.
There were 16 sales that closed in the four figure range with no five figure closes.
Note: The following data is for closed auctions, none of these are closed sales, these auctions may not get paid for, the seller may not push the name or the names may be renewed.
