    by Elliot Silver
    Sedo hit the proverbial jackpot this week with the $150,000 sale of BettingTips.com. The sale was reported to me this afternoon in Sedo's weekly public domain name sales report, and NameBio tweeted about the sale when it hit the Sedo RSS feed earlier this morning: Top sale of the day goes to @Sedo - bettingtips(.)com […]

    Great post by Mark Thorpe in article comments

    “But most domain pros say that plural domains and names that have “ing” in them don’t sell...

    Nursing.com $950k
    RazorBlades.com $500k
    BettingOdds.com $487k

    Gambling domains are just crazy priced - I suppose it’s inline with the pay per click costs.

    Interested to watch where it all lands as I have some great gambling domains never sure whether to target or to wait on them. To be honest I dropped betting gambling keyword domains years back and kept bet and casino only.

    Samer,
    Your comment is valid.
    The pluralisation of domains is somewhat an anomaly in terms of its expression,but singularly may not stand up without the ‘s
    For example take the word tree.com in terms of value ($350K) against trees.com ($450K) there would be in my opinion be a market variation of around $100K for the plural domain being trees.com
    Then if you compare a domain I just happen to own called Pinup.com and Pinups.com
    Whilst Pinup.com would realistically get appraisals for around $300K it’s plural Pinups.com would only be 50% say $150K of the singular domain.
    The real meaning of more than one does vary, but the equation in math really doesn’t for those who carry out due diligence that includes not only ‘traffic’ but grammatical factors of common speech with a bottom line of public use will give the edge in value.
    Anyway, sorry to go on for so long but hope you were able to pickup some info that had taken myself 20 years to learn.

    your article covered too much too many, and many on that list overvalued; mrringo $10k?
    modena $34k? businesssydney.com $9880?

    Sedo the last doing reports... Give them credit, but is it fair to question the authenticity reliability of the data? Wow i’m amazed

    DomainInvesting just focused on biggest one.
    A lot of “overpriced” names on list distracts...

    Nothing much has changed in Domain Sales News over the past 20 years.
    With respect to the prices paid always sends a small tsunami to domain holders interest of lining up their own stocks for a possible rise in the value.

    I will keep this short as have to go out shortly but if you go through everyone of the top 20 domains that we’re sold in the Sedo auction/sales that included bettingtips.com and you will not find another single domain listed with anywhere near the same generic factors or value in the common English language.
    I remember so well in my first 5 years of domain acquisition that I fell into the biggest trap (that still happens today with more so less experienced) I must have registered at least 500 domains that only made sense to myself.
    Then a few years later just like a garage sale I like others would have a ‘fire sale’ and be lucky to get our registration price it just go into the Drop Bin.
    There is no better valued domain on the global market today than an aged generic .com short word describing word that is commonly used in the English speaking countries around the globe.

    Interesting sale @ 150k , the only reason i say that is because "Tips" , Tips pointing to advice or opinion, these types of domains don't usually fetch 6 figure sales , it will be interesting to see what the buyer does with the name.

    As @Samer posted, the "ing" endings aren't fast sale names, it seems end users usually view them as their 3rd choice of the exact name they are interested in.

    That is a very sale for the seller. I am thinking 35K to 50K max value for it IMO

    Agree with your thoughts of bettingtips.com being an interesting sale and possibly a higher price than most investors would have considered.
    It comes across high because it is 2 words that generally lessens the value because if commonality and popularity of speech.

    if I was a betting man ( excuse the pun) I would bet my right armpit on the new owners having already started a website development,they are putting together for a unique business around gambling that economically becomes a small cost of ‘branding’ their business identity.

    Nice sale if true, but there is no info of this name selling for that on NameBio or Google.

    Also Files/Coins/Plants/Tokens/Leads/Taxes/Crystals/Links (all .com) and Casinos.org have all sold for 6 and 7 figures in the past 12 months.

    Well, sure, the buyers of big-ticket gambling names always have a plan, just as buyers of common dictionary words would. A 2- or even 3-word gambling phrase can sell for a good price if it's precisely targeted. In fact we sold FootballBettingTips/com not long before this.
    The Ribacka brothers, the purchasers of bettingtips, have worked in the gambling development sector for a long time. The volume of inquiries we received on this name and others showed that “betting” is often stronger than “bet,” probably because it’s more naturally used by the sports-wagering public.

    Last year, the trend in gambling names was to get domains including “US” or “USA” in it — as an extension, too. And that trend is continuing; investors all over the world are interested in the fact that U.S. states are gradually permitting domestic gambling. Casinos.us went for $XXX,XXX. I think both betting.us and gambling.us also changed hands last year or perhaps late 2018.

    Thank you

    I own Pinup..com and receiving quality inquiry for an acquisition may not be all that far away.
    The buyer of this lot is going to get the best deal for a long time because the hard work had been done and now the member income is starting to roll in.

    cheers

    I would be disappointed with only $150k for that name.

    Some people are making small fortunes knowing that sports are rigged/scripted through Gematria.

    Does anyone really think that Patriots/Falcons Super Bowl was anything else but a script akin to WWE Wrestling?

    For those who seek deep layers of truth previoiusly hidden from the masses.....
