    I was looking at Christmas domain name sales when I struck upon this sale of TheNightBeforeChristmas.com at $2,600 in 2007 just 12 days before Christmas.

    I mean who would buy such a long name for $2,600. There are so many better names that could be bought for that price.

    Was domaining in 2006 totally different and focused on long keywords or this person is insane to have bought it at that price?

    Someone who has been in the industry for a long time, share your experience perhaps?

    Keyword domains did hold more weight in the search engines back then. It is a widely commercialized term. I dont think the price is that outrageous, there were definitely better buys for 2,600 though.

    Is it?
    Keyword is okay but then there would have been so many good and better options even with the keyword. This is so so long and descriptive.
    also, I see a website there.

    It's pretty well known - https://www.google.com/search?clien...i9MnaAhUBvFMKHZSgAe0QBQgmKAA&biw=1536&bih=700

    It was available and they're an end user, so I'm sure they're happy with it, don't think it's too much for a name you really want.
