What is the best way to Monetize a Domain Name blog?

To answer this we need to go back to the basic question of Why are visitors coming to the Domain Name blog. They are coming to see if they can find some useful information.

The Power of a Domain Name blog or any blog for that matter is in the posts you are writing. I feel this is the best part of the domain name blog that can be monetized. It can be paid posts, product reviews, posts for link building etc as long as it adds value to the visitors in the form of information.

For the same reason i have so far resisted to monetize using Adsense, Affiliate ads in the side bar etc. Again i might be on the wrong foot on this one as i didn’t seriously try to monetize the blog till now.

This is my perspective. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.

I have made by first domain name sale at Bido pending payment. Overall i am impressed with Bido. Few of the unique interesting features that stood out were

1. Auto Domain Name Owner Verification

Bido asks you to add a randomly generated tag in the whois details of the flag. Once you do this, bido automatically checks for this tag in the whois details of the domain name thereby confirming you have the control over the domain name when you click on “verify”.

2. Bido’s social voting system

I have already written about this in my earlier post.

One important link missing was that, once the domain name is sold, Bido didn’t give a follow up mail after the domain name sale. I was a bit surprised as Bido mailed even when the domain name which i voted for came to auction. Honestly i was expecting a mail saying the domain name has been sold and pending payment. I only got a mail after the buyer made the payment, asking me to push the domain name.

Overall i love Bido as it gives me an easy alternative option to sell my domain names.

Staff on August 24th, 2009 has been recovered. The owner Mazen Ghani has updated the info on Namepros.

Since the domain was still with Moniker, there was hope for the owner to recover the name. Moniker does rock for sure.

Looks like the hacker got hold of the name and sold it right away. The Buyer has bought the domain for $14,000 through wire transfer.

Not sure about the exact way the deal was reached, but high priced domain deal by wire transfer is a big red flag especially when the Seller has no big reputation imho.
