WifeLover.com - 100,000 + - Why?


Alright... after reviewing the sales from TRAFFIC, (thanks to DNJournal) I came across this domain, and couldnt quite grasp my mind around it. I did some investigating into this name...

The only thing that could have pushed its value up, was due to a large adult site on WifeLovers.com - its alexa ranking is about 15,000 which means it gets excellent traffic, but a "typo" of that site going for 100k+

Can someone else shed some light on this one?

"wife" and "lover' are two words much more apt to be used universally than words like "spam" and "o-rings" for example, plus the typo traffic you mentioned, fwiw...

Which Traffic did that sell at? Looking at the live and silent lists, doesn't appear to be this one.


Like exact match .com/.net/.org domains? We have many for sale - contact me for a list.

I may have made an assumption. This was a Moniker sale that was listed today - My Appologies.

Perhaps, but the combination of "Wife Lover" in google search results only yielded 200,000 or so....

T.r.a.f.f.i.c - probably because the OVT with extension for wifelover.com is 1545

(wifelovers.com is 103673 - it must be good !)

So you believe this was due solely because of typo traffic for an Adult site? Anyone else think that still seems excessive?

I dont think that any typo traffic worth $100,000 only if we talking about typo for Yahoo or Google ( While this will never happen too ) , but may be some end-users were very interesting in wifelover.com that made the price skyrocket.

No alexa rank .. so that mean 1 - 50 maximum daily visitors for wifelover.com !

Am I the only ones having a problem understanding where this sale came from?

So... Potential for this sale are as follows (as suggest by NPers)

1) EndUser Magic
2) Adult Typo Traffic

Any other reason for the big dollars?

Agree Justin. Perhaps it was bought by the owner of wifelovers.com? They'd probably have the money.

I was thinking maybe WifeLovers.com picked it up, but the whois has two different people.

1.) I say it's due to the traffic.
2.) or wifelovers.com picked it up.

So.... now were throwing the WifeLovers.com into the mix. I had considered that, but would it make sense (considering the site) to purchase a 100,000 + dollar domain name? Couldnt that capital be used to clean up the site a bit?

So.... the 3 possible sales reasons:

1) EndUser Magic
2) Adult Typo Traffic
3) Purchase by WifeLovers.com

If someone has a plan to develop it, this domain will make the money back.
So it is possible a end user.

We could just wait a few month to see what site will be displayed.

I wondered about this domain as well. It would not make sense to me to put a similar site to wifelovers<.>com on the domain - both domains would leak traffic like crazy. There isn't an affiliate program (although tarcash<.>com is registered by the same person as wifelovers<.>com
wifelover<.>com must make money from that parked page - it's all sponsor links.

So guys - how does the domain name MomLover.com compare to WifeLover.com? Ironically, it was a TDNAM capture that was just moved into my account this morning. Which is my main reason for being so curious as to why WifeLover.com sold for so much.

MILF would have been better in a perfect world.
but it's a great capture.
when i see wife - i think of swingers - and cheating.
when i see mom - i think of (my eyes my eyes) - just a woman of a certain age, who has kids - but of course is still sexy (ha ha)

Agreed on the "MILF" vs "Mom" keyword - however using "Mom" gives the domain functionality to be either Adult or Mainstream.... but I am curious who purchased WifeLover.com and why.... I suppose the parking may be an indicator, however unsure of the domain has technically changed hands yet....
