I'm done... anyone else?

I regged another 280 Japanese IDNs in the last 48 hours, but that's now IT... Apart from opportunistic buys/regs if any happen to come along, I'm now officially in WAIT mode until traffic/clicks start to rise measurably.

Has anyone else drawn a line under their research process?

"I'm done", you have said this a few times already :-).

I thought I was out, but they (IDNs) pulled me back in.

No sorry, I have some really fertile avenues to explore. We are rapidly heading for 4K domains!

Re: I'm done... anyone else?

Edwin,

If its ok, can I ask how many IDNs you have actually registered ???
Surely you are on your way into the Guiness Book of Records.

Good luck with all your domains


Alex

Re: I'm done... anyone else?

Although if I was regging Japanese IDNs I probably would have stopped a long time ago.

Other languages are much more 'open' and difficult to resist.

Re: I'm done... anyone else?

Wow, 280 in 48 hrs! I take 3 mths to register that many domains.

I've just sped up recently, found a new method to generate popular names with traffic - up from 1-2 domains a day to 3-4!!

Re: I'm done... anyone else?

IT'S A DRUG:

I had decided to stop at 100, after 500, I decided also to stop.
When I reached 1300 (including bills), I noticed that I was gambling like with roulette.

Meanwhile, revenues are ok, and the 2500 names mark is over

BUT: I put a bottomline for revenues, below €2/Month names are now consequently deleted; exception is only made for excellent generics like vidéothèque.com


Also, diversify your portfolio, for example, www.turbo-dating.eu has I think much more value than 'something' like crédits.com (60 IDN names has been deleted recently and replaced by good eu.names such as societa.eu, movel.eu or cyberpoker.eu.

The best tip i can give is to go out and leave this hell/office for somewhile.

There is a life after domains....

Ciao

DABSI

It wouldn't be difficult if domainsite.com was actually working!

Re: I'm done... anyone else?

I'm quite fussy with names. So far, with my 400 names, my PPC premium is 30%.

I'll probably be adding names slowly until i reach 800 names, and hopefully increase my PPC premium in the process.

I've also been selling quite a lot, i think i've sold about 15% of my portfolio so far.

Recently, I have ran into you on almost every corner of the globe. One thing for sure, you are diversifying your portfolio!

There are still good names in most languages except German and Japanese.

Actually, I have been booking large amounts of Japanese in recent days. Several hundred. I am going on whether there are Google Adwords and Sponsored links. If there are, I am going for it!
