MLA is a UK-registered business consultancy with over 40 years of experience, based in London.

Over the years, we have been researching domain flows for clients and have recently released some domain information to share with you.

https://anynetname.com/research-domains

You will find a curated selection of domains displaying the ongoing hits to each domain, acquired as part of an extensive domain sourcing project for a product launch, initially involving a total of 40 domains (Over 15 yrs ago).

We offer an interesting insight into these random niche and word differences.

The domains were reset and removed some of the project elements for public sharing.

Maybe I’m missing something but I just see a page with a list of names and a hit counter next to each one.

Is there something else?

You make me feel like a real domain geek!

When we set this up, we didn’t market any of the pages.

All the traffic "hits" demonstrate how naturally some domains attract visitors, while others don’t. Interestingly, some domains get more traffic simply based on spelling variations of the same word.

We’re in the process of adding the seasonal version, which intriguingly shows the swell of traffic throughout the year.

Overall, these domains and others have been used for various research projects.

Very few actually had a website; others were purchased for licking, to gauge search engine and backlink implications. Honestly, we thought this would be interesting to other domain enthusiasts.

On average, these domains get healthy traffic.

For the next release, I’ll take your thoughts into account and present the next set differently.

Back in the day, we watched the domains climb up "AltaVista" remember that? and other regional search engines.

We tried HotDog products from Oz and other paid search engine tools that have since vanished.

We watched and wondered why some domains entered the "Wayback Machine" while others didn’t.

Some domains appeared further afield than others, highlighting differences in spellings and extensions.

We’re not selling any services. I’m way too busy with kids, dogs, cats, my wife, and our 16-year-old T5 California.

This is just some domain fun we thought would be interesting to share.

Have a fab day

Without deeper info the hits data isn’t all that interesting as there is so much bot traffic and variation due to use and geography etc.

From a sales perspective I’ve not noticed much correlation between traffic and likelihood or price of a sale.

I was building websites in the mid-late 90s and it was such a different game back then that any data or insights are fun but purely for geeks indeed!

Those were the days - truly the wild west on so many levels.

I bought my first domain in 1996 and love Joomla

On a sad sack basis, I know it's not breath taking info, however it's not often there are different keyword domain and collections of domains with all the extensions (.com .co.uk. .net. org).

I find even the basic details interesting, including the bot's, and other variations. (sad sack i know but.........)

Over the coming weeks i wanted to try and add more data the next seasonal section, it is just for fun.

The full research included many more variations and datasets from different perspectives.

RE: "From a sales perspective I’ve not noticed much correlation between traffic and likelihood or price of a sale."

Yup i agree, this is basic info and suggest nobody considers handing over a pile of cash on any domains, until they have a plan, a buyer or an eye on the profit.


Have a great day

I went on your website and gone through some of the domain names and the hits it has received but is that it?

Please provide more information, e.g. hits per year/month, geography, etc.

Presenting a consolidated view would be better.
