    I'm no expert and this is probably info that is "understood" but I just thought it could help.

    when people try to sell 2L, 3L, and 4L .com's they usually let the domain sell itself and don't even bother providing a list of keywords that each letter could stand for.

    But I thought about this.

    in this example below let's find comps for whatever keyword the last letter could represent.

    T in the above domain can stand for. Technology, Times, Travel, Trip.

    Most sellers just leave it at that and just hope for the best.

    Why not go the extra mile as far as data?

    For example, if you are going to say that T can stand for Technology?
    Then why not provide all domain sales that END with Technology since the T is at the END of 16,208 USD 2007-07-31 SnapNames 15,000 USD 2015-04-19 DIS Inc. 15,000 USD 2014-02-09 Afternic 10,000 USD 2014-03-26 Sedo 10,000 USD 2009-04-07 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. 8,500 USD 2015-12-21 Uniregistry 8,500 USD 2014-03-02 Afternic 7,400 USD 2009-02-04 NameJet 6,342 USD 2015-04-19 Voove 5,600 USD 2008-03-24 NameJet

    Why provide this info? because ultimately whoever buys your short abbreviation domain probably wants to shorten their longer domain which just so happens to have a keyword at thee end whose first letter begins with the last letter of your domain.

    Makes sense? This is a more logical explanation about how valuable your domain is.

    Let's take it up a notch? how about the H in
    H can stand for Home(s), House, Hospital, Health,Hotels

    So now let's find all domain sales beginning with House 135,800 USD 2011-08-01 NameJet 75,000 USD 2007-07-10 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. 40,000 USD 2012-09-30 Afternic 30,000 USD 2006-11-25 Moniker 15,000 USD 2016-01-28 Rightside 15,000 USD 2013-05-08 Uniregistry / DomainHoldings 14,688 USD 2011-01-24 Sedo 14,000 USD 2008-02-19 Private 13,000 USD 2016-01-11 NamesCon 12,823 USD 2015-02-10

    And now you have provided an "orgy" of data that is so overwhelming that it makes sense to buy your domain and keep bidding on it at auction.

    Give it a try. What would it hurt?

    note. I think all the above would only work with very short abbreviation domains like 2L and's maybe's but that's a stretch.

    If this is stupid then just ignore and apologies for wasting your time. Thanks.

    Good luck!

    So if I'm the CEO of a billion dollar company called Bad Example Technology, and I contact you because I want to buy, you're going to explain to me that T stands for Technology? LOL!!!
