Want Liquidity? Sell Me Your Best .COM For $1,200

Okay, here’s an idea I’ve wanted to try for a while and I decided that today is the day! This year I’ve made some incredible sales as well as purchased some fantastic domains and I’m continuing to buy more names that meet the profile I’ve found the most liquidity with. I get a ton of emails from readers looking to sell their names and get some quick liquidity, so I thought I would provide this opportunity but make it available for everyone to submit their names, and publicly.

Don’t get confused by the title of this post. I’m not asking for the best .COM in your portfolio marked-down to $1,200. What I am asking for is the best .COM you have that you’d be willing to sell for $1,500 not the very best .COM in your portfolio for $1,200 (unless of course that’s what you’d be willing to sell it for!). Here is the criteria of what I’m looking for:

  • Over 1,000 exact-match local searches
  • CPC over $1
  • One and two-word .COMs only
  • No existing website on the domain

Please use search and CPC data from the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. To submit your domain please enter it in the comment field below along with the exact-match local search volume and CPC. In order to make this fair I’m only allowing one domain per person so please don’t submit a huge endless list of domains in the comment field. Any domains listed without search volume and CPC will be ignored so please make sure to include this data.

For this first round I’ll be buying one domain but if this goes well I might open it up to buying more like this in the future. The final purchase will be made through Escrow.com, and I will be happy to split fees with the seller. And with that, let’s get started!

Important Note: Please make sure you are looking at exact-match local searches. I have had a number of submissions now where the search volume given is a broad-match. So just to re-iterate, please make sure that match-type is set to exact as shown below:

    This is a great idea, but what the hell… still no domains? It looks like people think their domains with the required specs are worth more than $1200.

    Hi Morgan, the one you looked up must have been the mistake with an accidental plural, please scratch that one. My revised entry above, ApplianceRemote(.)com has the exact search numbers you’re looking for. Just checked it before submission.
    In the past, there was a remote for your tv and entertainment systems, but the future of home automation is in an appliance remote that controls all the systems and products from one source. This domain will be a category leader as the product becomes more mainstream.

    @Morgan, re: Gailygal – as one word, bathhook gets 0 local search (not really a word) – but as two words “bath hook”, actually her locals are spot on, (cpc slightly overstated). Just for clarification, are you looking the local data with spaces between the keywords, or run together?

    @Gailygal – Yes, and I think the difference in CPC numbers between what you claim and what I saw might be geographically influenced. I’m on the east coast usa. These statistics from the keyword tool seem to have some fluidity.

    Hi Morgan,

    Wondering if you’re comment system is still on the fritz. i left one this morning but its not here, and also earlier i only had the choice of signing in w/ some social media account, but now I have just the option of using my name and email. I also many of the comments seem out of order compared to the order I read them this morning.

    In any case, my submission was

    PaleoBlog dot com
    1300 local
    $2.38 cpc

    • Morgan May 1, 2012, 12:37 pm

      Hi @Michael, comment system is working, just can’t approve comments fast enough! They’re coming-in like crazy!

  • Mauro May 1, 2012, 12:34 pm

    Hi Morgan.

    I can not understand tthe difference between your Adwords and my Adwords tool .

    But anyway… good luk on your search 😉

  • Michael May 1, 2012, 12:47 pm

    @Morgan no worries, just want to reiterate what I said in my original comment that never showed up, if you are uncertain about the term paleo, look up ‘paleo diet’ on google. i’ve been on it for about a year, never felt better and have gained almost 20 lbs. for a skinny guy like me, that was no small feat. 🙂

    (yes people, i am trying to gain weight, eat your hearts out 😉 )

  • Morgan May 1, 2012, 12:49 pm

    @Maura – there is only one keyword tool – it is the Google Adword Keyword Tool. Since most of the search traffic in the world goes to Google, this is the gold standard. You could use the Bing keyword tool…but that would only account for about 25% of the traffic.

    Any other tool you are using is just pulling old cached versions of the Google Adword Keyword Tool data so isn’t too meaningful.

  • 4093057 May 1, 2012, 1:06 pm

    I agree with Michael. Yesterday I posted my comment using disqus; however, it gave me several other options for me to login. Today, I just entered my name and email. Yesterday I was also able to sort the comments, not today. Something is out of whack.

    • Morgan May 1, 2012, 1:34 pm

      @4093057 – yes, had a lot of problems with Disqus yesterday so I actually removed it from my blog and went back to normal comments. Back to good old regular Wordpress comments!

    Hi Morgan,

    Maybe I missed it but I didn’t see any submit by date. Anyways, if still open, I have the following:

    occlusal guard com – 1,300 – $1.75

    (even though its a three word but meets your other criteria)

    Hi Morgan,

    I’d like to update the CPC on my domain, EventsSearch.com. I got the original figure from validate.com (d’oh!). I only just figured out how to set the CPC in Google’s keyword search (click the ‘Apply’ button dummy!). Sorry, I’m relatively new at this.
    I set the keyword search for Everywhere, and English, resulting in:
    Local monthly searches: 14,800
    CPC: $1.23

    When set for the United States, and English, I get the following:
    Local monthly searches: 6,600
    CPC: $1.33

    For the life of me I can’t find an Exact Match dropdown menu on the page, as you show in your introduction. Googling didn’t give me an answer, either. I did read elsewhere, however, that you can get an exact match if you put the phrase within square brackets. I hope this fits your criteria.

    Hello, I live in Mongolia ( in Asia). I’m sorry, I’m a newbie. Are you buying a domain (Over 1,000 exact-match local searches, CPC over $1, one or two word)?

    Thank you
