Do you know where the bulk of your domain inquiries arrive from? Landing pages can convert into sales if there is clear contact information available, whether it's custom landers or via domain aftermarket marketplaces but the latter are usually anonymous. Then there's some wishful thinking about using the contact information in the WHOIS. Find out what other domain investors experience.

Expired domains of financial institutions
Domain names expire all the time; while they were in use by companies such as financial institutions, the residual domain traffic could have been significant. Excluding obvious cases involving trademarks, is it risky to capture or register such domain names for their traffic? Domain investors discuss this potential approach to PPC earnings.

Thanks for mention, and another great rundown of topics, @Acroplex.
I must search more for the domains at the World Cup – I was concentrating on the football :ROFL:
I think how buyers seek and find names is a really important topic – lots of great discussion already.
