Owner Posts ‘Domain Buying Lesson’ On The Domain For Sale

tlds

A domain name owner got offended by a low ball offer and posted a ‘domain buying lesson’ on the domain for sale.

The domain was registered in 2003 while the “buyer” ended up buying the .org instead as his budget was apparently just $51 and at the end he said he hoped that the domain name owner would starve.

Here is what the domain name owner posted on his domain for sale burchlaw.com:

Domain buying lesson #1

If you contact someone about buying a domain name and they don’t want to sell it for a fraction of the cost associated with owning it don’t be rude, remember you contacted them.

Here is a good artical on buying a domain name

  1. What an asshole! Hope his business fail.

  2. Just a classic case of an interested buyer knowing absolutely zero about the value of domain names or the differences between domain extensions

  3. I’ve tried to visit BurchLaw.com and my antivirus just warned me “potential phishing attempt” … lol 😀
    I would have never registered such a domain, too specific, but that’s another story …
    That said, the potential “buyer” was unnecessarily rude … if you can’t afford it, buy something else …

    P.S. Those automatic messages from DNS system are really ridiculous … 🙂

  4. It always brightens my day when I read about funny negotiations and contact attempts. I think disclaimers like the one that domain owner put up might be a necessary trend to start in order to self regulate the industry.

  5. Hello Konstantinos,

    Most Google Ad-sense advertisers are drinking Google Kool-Aid and going with the mentality that other extensions than the Strategic .COM Profit Centers are just as good, as long as they use Google Ad-sense Marketing.

    You will find that 99% of all Google Ad Marketing Agencies are Clueless about the superior Marketing Strategies that All .COM Profit Centers embody. They got it wrong thirty years ago and continue their flawed Marketing Strategies to this day.

    They still don’t get that they lose their clients valuable Rustled Traffic within the Google Traffic Rustling Maze. Actually losing as much Traffic as they gain in the Google Ad System. Utterly Amazing to us that this is still being used by most Uneducated Online Advertising Agencies.

    If their Online website owners knew the truth of the matter, they would be Furious.

    There are two recipes for Online Business Failures:
    1. NOT owning a .COM Profit Center
    2. Using Google Adsense Marketing

  6. Most all Domain Pricing Systems are based on Google-Centric Analytics. As we have discussed many times this Archaic Pricing system is obsolete. There are Economic .COM Profit Center Valuations that are based on pure traffic potential Compounding, that .COM site holders ONLY can enjoy. This can only be accomplished with Marketing Strategies that DO NOT INCLUDE Google Ad Support. Actually most All Good Domains chances of Gaining back ALL the traffic meant for their site, are increased OUTSIDE THE GOOGLE Traffic Rustling Maze.

    So if your analytics are Google-Centric, you may want to reconsider Valuations Outside The Google System as more representative of the true Economic Valuations, some savvy .COM End-Users are aware of.

  7. Google has been on the prowl since their Market Inception, to undermine or replace domains as a tool for navigation. Their massive Advertising campaigns dissing .COM Profit Centers Assets as having low valuations, permeates the Valuation Psyche of many in the domaining Industry.

    This concerted Google-Centric characterization, needs to be realized by all domainers as a frauduleht Valuation Model. Yes maybe we should consider the .COM Asset Class as being much more valuable Outside of the Google SEM Model. The Google Garden Maze, devalues any and all participants sites within its Traffic Stealing shell game, that in effect exposes all Google Ad participants to massive loss of Traffic to the participants most dreaded Competitors

    Long story short Domain valuations are reduced for all Google participants. There are Domain Valuations within the Google Traffic Trap that are much lower than the true Economic Valuations being experienced by Site Owners that bypass Google.

    • Jeff, why are you advocating .com but your domain says to use .biz??

      • haha good question. and a very bad website at . biz

      • Hello Mike Mikkelson,

        Either you are not perceptive or your thoughts are illusionary. There is no .biz anywhere in UseBiz.com

        Are you drinking GOOGLES Kool-Aid ? If you are employing Google Ad-Sense Marketing you are damaging your Corporations Brand Differentiation. This is Lethal for New website start-ups Bottom Line. We know you don’t get this but there are many clever Domainers that do. You may want to start following the Really Smart Money. Good Luck !

  8. More crap about google adsense from you know who

    • Hello MrVg,

      Here is some more useful information for The Really Smart Money, that you call crap.

      The Google Garden Maze, devalues any and all participants sites within its Traffic Stealing shell game, that in effect exposes all Google Ad participants to massive loss of Traffic to the participants most dreaded Competitors. This Co-Mingling of .COM Brands within the Google Matrix (Adsense), creates a floating pool of Shanghaied Traffic, which Google then distributes network wide, at the expense of Google Ad supporters.
      Long story short Domain valuations are reduced for all Google participants in this ingeniously deceptive Traffic Rustling Corridor. There are Domain Valuations within the Google Traffic Trap that are much lower than the true Economic Valuations being experienced by Site Owners that bypass Google.

  9. Every 5 minutes a would-be buyer somewhere in the world spits in the eye of the domain owner whose property he covets. Merely because the domain owner isn’t eager to sell at a price point that (if generalized) would cause him to lose money.

    • Hello Joseph Peterson,

      Many of the would be buyers are New TLD owners looking for a quality .COM Profit Center and are angry and are feeling betrayed by All the New TLD PROMOS meant to decieve Domainers and Web Site Owners. You would be angry too !

      The new Google financed and inspired TLDs introductions, that Google heavily promoted ICANN accepting, were never meant to be extensions that would be used predominately for Stand Alone Business Destinations. Their Highest and Best use would be for proliferating Digital Junk Mail infused into Googles SEO Maze.They would be Googles tools to expand their Search Engine Marketing Base. This Marketing strategy has succeeded extremely well.

      Domainers not aware of this big picture started speculating in new TLDs as being capable of being stand alone Business destination addresses. This was due to the new TLD promoters concerted effort to employ Bait and Switch advertising by assigning the .COM assets values and strengths to the new TLDs in other words Bait and Switch deceptive Marketing.

      This questionable strategy is now becoming more evident and Domainers are waking up after the fact of purchasing new TLDs only to find them to be Debt lease obligations and NOT resembling anything close to .COM Assets.

      Domainers are being Fleeced.

  10. Hello Konstantinos,

    The Secret Rick Schwartz Knows

    Rick Schwartz is the ONLY DOMAIN KING and he knows :

    The Google Ad Platform is its own Algorithm Controlled Traffic Monopoly. If you are lucky enough to own and control your own .COM Profit Center (OPERATING OUTSIDE THE GOOGLE TRAFFIC MONOPOLY) you in effect own and control your own Traffic Monopoly.

      • Google SEM Obsolesced Marketing Strategy, Fatal for start-ups :

        Due to Googles New GTLDS marketing ploy to expand their Ad Base Subscribers, 100s of unsuspecting New online Businesses using the Google advertising Network will fail within the Google Garden Maze, that are talked into adopting New TLD Marketing Strategies.

        These uneducated new businesses who swallow the new TLD marketing strategy will fail at an ever increasing rate.

        It is only a matter of time until Googles Strategy is understood by the advertising Industries Google Ad reps. who are unknowingly leading their clients into the Traffic Google corridor, that will ultimately destroy their End Users Traffic Starved fledgling business’s.

        Anyone who pushes Google advertising is ruining their long term reputation as savvy Online Marketing strategists. Is it worth it ?

      • Hello Konstantinos,
        (THE BIG PICTURE)
        The new TLD investors are actually helping GOOGLE cement more companies into their already vast and unmanageable network. This terribly flawed strategy feeds their vast armies of SEO advocates jobs by locking their Google Ads base into their Garden Maze of numerous businesses who are lost in their digital coding system. this Google inspired TRAP funnels or steers traffic away from them and channels this traffic to their ads customers most feared competitors. This Shell Game Google Wins and you the (End-User) investor in new TLDS lose.
        So if you want to help Google destabilize the DNSs Stability buy new TLDs. If you want to control all traffic that comes to your .COM site ,keeping your traffic safe from the Google traffic stealing Matrix you need to create .COM sub-domains with the new TLDs generic equivalent without the risks of new TLDs. This is what the really smart money is buying .COMs. NOT NEW TLDs
        Big winners in new TLD adoption are Google Ads, GOOGLE AD Salesmen , Advertising Companies,SEO suppliers ICANN, Registrars, Registrys, and the ( BIG losers are Domainers and End-Users ). Getting the picture?

  11. Hello Konstantinos,

    For those who follow early adopters in all assets, its important to realize how very very similar the .Com addresses are to stock equities as asset classes. Yet the Hybrid .COM Profit Center Assets are also very similar to Commodities. HENCE We Introduce ( .COM Profit Center (Equimoddities) ). Yet the .COM Profit Center (Equimoddities) Super Asset Class Produces just One Unique Commodity per Destination. PRICELESS

    • Hello Konstantinos,

      GOOGLES SEM Model Trillion $ Shakedown

      Here is a question for Strategic Thinkers.

      How much has ICANNS introduction of ALL NEW TLDS likely to cost The Worlds Economies in Lost GDP ?

      Our Answer : Year over Year GDP Cash Burn do to their effects on Online Business Failures = A minimum of 2% Nationally and Globally.

      (THE BIG PICTURE)

      The new TLD investors are actually helping GOOGLE and all SEM Model companies, cement more companies into their already vast and unmanageable SEM network. This terribly flawed strategy feeds their vast armies of SEO advocates jobs by locking their SEM Ads base into their Garden Maze of numerous businesses who are lost in their digital coding systems. This SEM inspired TRAP funnels or steers traffic away from them and channels this traffic to their ads customers most feared competitors. This Shell Game All SEM Marketing Platforms Win, and you the (End-User) investor in new TLDS lose.

      So if you want to help SEM Platforms destabilize the DNSs Stability buy new TLDs.

      Big winners in new TLD adoption are All SEM Platform Companies. Such as Google Ads, GOOGLE AD Salesmen , Advertising Companies,SEO suppliers ICANN, Registrars, Registrys, and the BIG losers are Domainers and Online End-Users (Businesses) , suffering Massive Economic Loss in GDP Growth.
