Man buys .net domain name for $62,500 with big plans.
Some people like to talk big. Patrick Gavin is putting his money where his mouth is.
The founder of Text-Link-Ads.com just plunked down $62,500 for SearchEngineOptimization.net at BuyDomains. It’s a steep price for a domain who’s .org version sold for just $750 back in 2006. But Gavin has a plan, and he’s going to let the world watch him succeed or fail.
Gavin plans to turn the web site into a learning resource for search engine optimization. He’s going to chronicle all of his SEO work for the domain as he attempts to get it ranked number one for the ultra-competitive term “search engine optimization” within one year.
Just goes to show what SEO experts and domainers already know: exact match domain names are a good foundation for search engine optimization.
