Domain names rapidly gained value between 2006 and 2007, with prices peaking in November 2007 (an increase of 76% compared to January 2006) before falling by 34% in the subsequent five quarters. Domains have steadily regained their strength since then, climbing to an all-time high in May 2011.


Not sure if its true or just trying to promote investing in domains!?

Interesting graph especially "Revenues from online ads (US)", mine have gone precisely the opposite way!

FWIW I recently bought a widget trade keyword .co.uk for USD 500, that's 10% of what they were asking for it just a couple of years ago.

I can see a lot of really good names for sale at relatively-speaking, low prices, yet no one buying. Maybe a combination of many people/companies having what they need and the Panda effect has depressed prices rather than increased them?

I have difficulty in trusting such things from Sedo. Its business is the domain trade.
