    I haven't had any sales through Sedo for about 2 years. I list my domains there and don't have any offers as well.

    It's incredible Sedo does such a poor job where you don't even see your domains in their own search! Surprising anyone would stay with Sedo or start using Sedo in view of that and other negatives I heard about here for a long time?

    The only reason we (domainers) are willing to pay 10-20% comission to sedo is because we believed sedo will bring more leads to our domains and generate more sales.

    Nonono, this not the case if your have some premium keywords domain with a extension of .ws .cc .tv .asia.

    Do you knew that the keyword .ws is no longer appeared on sedo search since 2011.

    Want a proof?

    Let's take a look what happened when .ws domains is affected by Sedo search result' manipulation back in 2011. Look at the stats, they completely destroyed the sales. They 'murdered' a domain extension.:dead:


    .cc .tv and .asia are another victims affected by Sedo search result' manipulation in the last two years.


    Sedo had a External Domain Transfer service and it only charge 3% fee. But it required the domains are not listed in sedo marketplace.

    I started to remove all of the affected domain from sedo and using landing page to direct communicate with potential buyers. I will use Sedo's External Domain Transfer service or escrow.com to close the deal when a deal is confirmed.

    What do you think it is? Has something changed about their search function? Trends?

    The main problem is Sedo's traffic! It is very low.

    LOL
    But these TLDs are already dead or struggling, it's not because of Sedo. Sedo have lots of shortcomings, but you can't blame them for the lack of consumer demand.

    I don't know how they are turning their search engine, but they somehow have to come up with a way to return search results that are relevant. Don't think there are many users who want to see .asia or .ws suggestions.

    I mean, would you still use Google if they returned low-quality websites all the time.

    My experience is that occasionally, the search results can vary considerably. For instance, on several occasions in searching for a popular product keyword I have listed, I could not easily find the domain in the results. Normally (for many yrs.), that domain has been very close to the top of the results (as it should be, imo). The search term is an exact match for the domain and I had the correct tld chosen. As for search criteria, you can't get any more relevant than that. However, the results were far from relevant.

    For what it's worth the results are back to "normal" for the last few months.

    sedo feels so good about their business and they think that they have full control of what they Do, but really their traffic is too low, and have nothing new to show in this business
