A little over five years ago, I accidentally stumbled upon something that forever altered my domain development experience: geo service domains.

Sometimes categorized as exact-match or partial-match domains, I encountered a geo service domain via GoDaddy’s expired domain buy-it-now/closeout auctions for a suburb of the greater Austin, Texas metro.

Although Google had issued an exact-match domain update that devalued and slightly lessen the ranking of exact-match domains, I decided to take a chance on developing my newly discovered geo service domain.

Little did I realize my development and SEO prowess would produce a page one ranking geo service domain website.

However, this specific domain request arrived a few weeks ago and intrigued me because of the following reasons: Continue reading

A few days ago, I shared with you about GoDaddy Domain Auctions disappearing before time expired as experienced by now retired, longtime domain investor Rick Schwartz.

Schwartz was figuratively robbed in broad daylight by GoDaddy’s Aftermarket platform as he actively bid on a expired domain that vanished from his viewing with less than 5 minutes this morning.

With no good explanation of what took place, Schwartz took to Twitter, and lit a fire under GoDaddy with endless questions, jabs and everything in between.

And where did this get him and us, the domaining community? Continue reading
