how do you find things on the internet?
I’m sure a lot of you thought of Google or Yahoo.
‘lets google it or yahoo it! you’d say’
there is however a new trend these days, and this is
someone looking for chocolates simply types in the address bar,
chocolates.com and gets directed to a website which sells great chocolates.
what are the chances of you typing www.wispaschocolateshop.com
to go to Wispa’s Chocolate shop if you have never heard of it?
Although they too make great chocolate.
the internet is HUGE, search engines bring back
TOO many results.TOO many websites.
I’ve just googled CAR and I got…
Results 1 – 10 of about 1,610,000,000 for car
more than 1 billion results.It’ll take years to
go through all of them. Search engines users rarely go to the
3rd or 4th page of the search results.
That is why generic domains (car.com, toothbrush.com, sofa.com) are so valuable.
they are EASY to remember. All forward thinking companies are striving to
secure the ones that relate to their business.
generic names are very popular (most of them,if not all! have
already been registered) and these are selling for
a sample of last week’s sales (Mon. Feb. 25, 2008 – Sun. March 2, 2008)
1. DataRecovery.com $1,659,000
2. Auditors.com $125,000
3. Skyport.com $101,000
Ben Carmitchel, President of ESS Data Recovery did a great move last week
by acquiring datarecovery.com. Anybody typing in datarecovery.com in their
address bar will be directed to ESS website.
I personally have never used a data recovery service before, but if it happens
that I might need this service in the future, I would definitely
type in “datarecovery.com”.
I may/may not hire their services but I would learn about them!
