Today’s Snapnames top sales and 14 available related domains

July 21, 2009

I thought it would be interesting to review three of the top keyword domain sales from today’s Snapnames Stimulus Auction and highlight some available related domains.

One word of caution:  It’s a common newbie mistake to register worthless domain variations after a major domain sale is published.  For example, if Treats.com sells for a million, don’t register SuperTastyTreats.com, ReallyGoodTreats.com, etc. and expect to cash in on the buzz.  That said – finding related niche keyword domains can be a useful way to use recent sales to brainstorm new potential domains.  I like to look for exact match keyword variations with good CPC and demand (as measured by Google’s keyword tool).

1. DegreePrograms.com  (sold for $31,555)

$10.74 Cost per click (CPC) with 9,900 monthly Google searches.  This was an exciting auction to watch as it had 12 bidders and went into ‘multiple overtime’ as bids placed in the last few minutes kept extending the auction 5 minutes at a time.   I started watching it in the high 20s and saw it get bid up to $31,555 bit by bit.

2. CameraBags.com  (sold for $10,500)

$1.34 CPC with 49,500 Google monthly searches.   Nice category domain name with 13,138 products listed in Google Shopping.

3. WirelessModem.com  (sold for $3,000)

$2.46 CPC with 14,800 Google monthly searches.   Over 1,300,000 exact match Google results and 7,236 products listed in Google Shopping.
