New software provides Overture data from January, February, and March 2007.
Updated Overture traffic data is a thing of the past, but a new software application makes it easy to find expiring domains with traffic thanks to its archive of Overture data.
OVT Matcher is a simple application, but don’t confuse simplicity with value. Basically, you download lists of expiring domains from SnapNames, NameJet, and other services. Import then into OVT Matcher, click “Go”, and see a list of the domains that have traffic data in under a second. The download and import process takes about 30 seconds.
The underlying Overture data is a goldmine in itself. I know people who have paid $10,000 for this data. February and March data is difficult to find because Overture defaulted its tool back to January. Therefore, this software can help you find traffic domains that didn’t register a score in January 2007…that most other domainers miss during the drop.
My only concern with software like this is dilution. If 100 people use it, there might be competition for these “hidden” traffic domain names. The application costs $200, which seems like a great deal to me. A lot cheaper than paying $10,000 for a data dump — and it’s functional, too.
