Have we been here before? Tell me why this time things are gonna be different?
.Mobi -> The future is mobile! Bust.
.Info -> Will be GREAT for INFORMATION websites! Do endless $.99 reg specials = .Iffy!
.Biz -> Errrr . . what was the buzz about biz? .Bizt!
.EU -> Sunrise! Get 'em while you can! .Eeuuuuw!
.Asia -> Huh? I dunno . . Any signs of life? .Aint!
.Me -> Hey! It's gonna be hot because it's all about ME! .Meh!
I say the money to be made is made by a) the registry during the tulip-mania period; and, b) anyone wise enough to flip a domain during the mania.
Sure, tell me that Overstock paid for O.co and that that proves something.
Didn't someone pay $$,$$$+ for Flowers.mobi? And that proved what?
Oh, I know! You can get a great keyword domain and that is where it's at! You are gonna rank! rank! rank! because you've got the keyword!
Of course, those who have been around for awhile have noticed how the weighting of keywords in domains is always a heavily rated factor. :P
Oh, but you have the keyword domain . . so everyone is just going to have to link to you . . because . . You've got great content and . . and . . no one else does?
So, my money is what is now happening is just another in a long line of domain tulip crazes. My money is on profits being made by those who flip their domains ASAP for a reasonable profit. (Don't be the last man/woman holding the bag . . err . . .Co)
So, tell me again, why .Co is the future and is great! great! great!
Please, tell me! I want to believe!
Wanna bet? :P ;)
