Expired Domains … LinkTree.org?

Posted on Dec 1, 2005

I found the domain LinkTree.org on a deleted domain list and had to register it. I often browse deleted domains and very rarely find anything interesting. A couple times a week I’ll come across something I’d buy, but by the time it’s in my shopping cart someone else has registered it. Probably by chance I’ve spotted two great names this year that I now own. Tools I use to find expired domains: ExpiredDomains.com – Simple search interface for expiring domains.

Google Analytics

Posted on Nov 18, 2005

For those of you who haven’t already heard Google released a new FREE online analytics application this past week. I setup 2 of my domains the day it was released and waited…and waited. Upon login I read “Awaiting Data” for the past two days. Last night I sent a support email to find out if I had done something wrong and received the following: Hello, Thank you for your email.
