    Hello fellow domainers. Just need to clear my conscience off some things. I do sell geo+service/product domains and I do outbound marketing to end-users. In my letter I tell my end users that the domain can help improve their SEO ranking. I sometimes get a reply that that concept is outdated that it's no more like that with SEO. Now I'm kinda worried about the value of what I'm selling to my end users. It now looks as if I'm lying about my domain. Does my domain still worth what I'm preaching?

    Can someone here help clear my worries and concern? SEO experts, domain experts

    There used to be a time when if you wanted to rank for 'Red Bicycles For Sale in Nigeria', all you had to do was register the domain redbicyclesforsaleinnigeria.com and stuff your content with that phrase.

    Google doesn't work that way anymore. Someone with the domain name, wheels.com or redbikes.com or uloko.com can rank for 'Red Bicycles For Sale in Nigeria' if they work on having quality content on their site.

    Someone might have sportswear.com and nike.com will still outrank them for the keyword, 'Sportswear.'

    It's deceptive telling prospective buyers of geo domains about non-existent traffic data or that they will rank on Google if they buy those names. Just leave that out when you pitch those kind of names.

    Best of luck

    PS: It's also no wonder that some of the geo domains that sell, drop after a year or two when the new owners realize there's no magical domain that will do their SEO for them.

    Hi

    i totally agree.

    let the domain name "speak for itself"

    imo...

    Fair play to you for having a conscious, listening to potential clients and questioning your business practices....

    A lot of people spam/outbound these types of domains on a regular basis quoting what you just said and it is absolute BS.......

    Have a read though the below as it comes straight from Google themselves

    Thanks. I'll have a change to my sales letter. Don't really like outbound marketing but I've not been lucky with inbound sales.
