    Seller's data is moved to the right bottom on this new BIN page...
     
    The views expressed on this page by users and staff are their own, not those of NamePros.

    Yes true but as op stated, you can't go in and see details like description, traffic, offer views, portfolio link ect. It's just this is the domain name and this is how much it costs. If someone was interested in that domain, then they would surely like some details about it first

    Only "Traffic" field is important for pricing - if we are talking about traffic domains (minimum 100 visits monthly).
    It has no any sense in other cases.

    Because this is the only activity Sedo does and can...
    No any real changes/moves to get more sellers/buyers... Just redesign every 2-3 years and that's all.

    I noticed this myself when I found it strange that the domain names in searches no longer linked to the detail page. I figured they were maybe A/B testing something. I don't mind the quick prompt popup but allow users to click on the domain to view the name's details if they so choose, please.

    Not sure if tagging him was a great idea because if he sees @equity78 's hack he may close that loophole.

    If Dave does not show up maybe we should not tag another sedo representative just as a precaution so that the hack stays viable.

    I can't edit my post any longer. Maybe @Eric Lyon or another moderator can remove it.

    Agree. don't want this info displayed, wondered if GDPR really allows them to show it without getting your consent.

    Regarding Sedo searches...
    This is just for domainers/resellers... and for some hunters for traffic domains...
    Endusers are absent there... they visit your domain directly... and if it is NOT parked on Sedo - no any reasons to use Sedo at all.

    And I see the same for my parked BIN domains - OLD/LEGACY page for direct visitors.

    So you get another (NEW) page only when searching on Sedo...

    And, probably, authorized user or guest - also matters here... in terms what page will be shown.

    Hi everyone, thanks for the thread and the valuable feedback!

    Here's a quick overview of what's happening:

    • We're constantly a/b testing features and improvements to our platform, so what you see here is a result of a test as well.
    • Skipping the "Domain Details" page for BuyNow Domains has led to an increased conversion to sales for domain sellers. This feature is now live.
    • Currently we're testing if the conversion increases for domains with other listing types as well.
    • The "Domain Details" page for each listed domain will still exist and won't be deactivated. So no worries about the "loophole", it won't be closed ;)

    The link posted earlier is an example of how to directly link to a specific domain name, e.g. https://sedo.com/search/details/?domain=basketballshoes.com. Just replace the domain name with any on our marketplace and it'll get you to the Domain Details Page. We will keep this functionality, so we're be able to link to your domains we're promoting on the homepage, on parking pages, or in our newsletters, or other media.

    Your domain description and details will still be important, because we will be making further tests, for which we'd like to show you a sneak peek below. Instead of forwarding to the Domain Details page we will display a layer (or modal screen) that includes important information about the domain and the seller, but more compact and without having to leave the search (details still subject to change).

    (Excuse the bi-lingual screenshot, this is a mock-up, and once live it'll be displayed in one language only)

    Again, thanks for the lively discussion, and we're looking forward to presenting you new features and optimizations soon.

    Best,
    Your Sedo Team

    Thanks for the update. Interesting to know that sales have increased for the Buy Now listings after this change.
