Re: Are you registering typos?

Not at all.

i.e if one owns ebay.com in "fake" russian

the way i see it u have 2 options

1. redirect to an ebay like site - untill ebay is knocking (not sure they can but i do not underestimate that they can) (if they cant do nothing great...the value grows)

2. redirect to completly diffrent site and then users leave immediately unless its VERY eye catching as they are looking for ebay/brand and not for i.e loans or another generic

The only other advantage can be considered a "low" branding tactic...so u redirect to one of your sites and people get to know u "by accident" (i dont know how much users will appriciate that you "made" them come and see your site)

As for i.e Generic.com , where it's worth will only grow and u can build on it, not have it knowing u might only have it for a few more days/weeks/months etc...and all other advantages obviously that come with a regular domain

P.S Eyeballs=$ online...thats true...but still..all above applies
