It’s hard to believe a year has passed since MERGE! burst onto the scene in its inaugural debut.
Many attendees have converged to meet in Orlando, Florida this year at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista – Disney Springs Area to pick up where we left off last year discussing an array of digital principles — Domains, Hosting, Digital Search, CMS, Cryptocurrency, IP, Blockchain, eCommerce and Security.

If you’re new to the domain investing (even if you’re not), then you likely encounter a how cumbersome of a task it is to identify undervalued domains.
From NameJet to GoDaddy to Dynadot to SnapNames along with many more domain auction aftermarket platforms, identifying and narrowing in on undervalued domains — whether expired, public, private, or closeout — is a full time job in itself.
Thousands of domains expire in auction daily (as a subset of data is shown via DomainState.com chart below), and an unidentified number of those domains go on to be caught, or deleted and made available for hand registration (small percentage, but still happens).
A few years back I pondered the impact of a newly birthed semantic search strategy pertaining to small business with a hyper-local customer base.
Of course, semantic search has transformed into much more since that time, expanding beyond local SEO.
Most website owners and operators often depend upon the great Google to drive both online and offline business in some way, shape, form or fashion.
And since the birth of SEO, the golden question most folks desire to know in great depth is:
How do I increase my website content’s SEO effectiveness to boost search rankings and results?
I was recently helping a friend establish his web presence when he encountered an interesting situation quite common for WordPress beginners: displaying WordPress Posts on Specific Pages.
When he originally launched his website, Abolitionist.cc, via WordPress, it was to be a simple website consisting of the following pages:
But about 2-3 weeks into launching the website, he discovered an opportunity for engaging and educating his reading audience via a blog section.
At the time, his Home page was listing the latest 10 WordPress posts — quite a common setup when launching a vanilla install of WordPress.
With a goal to make the Home page a bit more unique in time, what my friend currently desires is to list the latest 10 WordPress posts on both a Home and Blog page, having the display of both pages somewhat different.
So, how does one go about displaying WordPress posts on specific pages? Continue reading
A week or so ago, I was scanning my Twitter profile feed in search of another tweet when I saw a slew of posts with the title “Check out this link” followed by a Facebook link.
Each tweet had the same title but different link associations. At first I thought my account had maybe been hacked.
Not wanting to click the link that followed “Check out this link”, I created a controlled virtual environment to view the link from to control it should it be a virus, malware or ransomware.
Even though it was posted on Twitter, one can’t take chances with blindly clicking links.
Nevertheless, I clicked the link only to be taken to one of my daily expired auction pages. Then, I had an aha moment. Continue reading
What a week it’s been in the domain industry!
At the beginning of this week, news broke that MediaOptions purchased DomainSherpa, the leading educational media company dedicated to the domain name industry, after Michael Cyber retired for greener and more relaxing pastures.
Now it’s a Friday afternoon and almost time to call it quits when I stumbled upon what looks to be a valiant effort to be the next DomainSherpa for Emoji Domains. Continue reading
