Domain Mining- Follow the Money

Good article from DomainNews.com. Not quite as easy without bid tools for many languages, but probably can draw some parallels from ascii.

Re: Domain Mining- Follow the Money

Like registering what people are subscribing to Adwords for is something new, as opposed to just registering high Overture Search terms.

I have been arguing this and applying it for the last couple of years.

If there is high search volume relative to Ad subscribers, you get paid peanuts, and probably get a ropey set of Ads displayed anyway so your Click Through is also way down. It is simple supply and demand.

If on the other hand you can supply traffic for which Google has no search traffic, the advertisers have to pay the Earth for those leads. Of course in some cases you might wait years for a single click.

If on the other hand you can do both you have one of Edwin's Footprint Elephants.

Going for Overture Bid terms over Overture Search terms (or their equivalents) is a no brainer in my book.

It's a no-brainer to go after high PPC terms - the problem for many asian markets is (a) there is no data available to suggest the high bid terms and (b) no search terms get such high bids as the American terms. And to be honest, I never hope I see the day when Bangkok lawyers can afford to pay $50 per click. That would mean I couldn't afford one ;-)

I don't normally look up actual bids. If I see loads of Ads at the prices domains are fetching at the moment that is enough to give me the Green Light.
