I can see things through the eyes of an end-user because I am an end-user and so are many of you. So when we needed a domain for TRAFFIC it was obvious that Traffic.com was not available nor could I afford it if it were. How many millions is that worth? Traffic as a Keyword is one of the most difficult to get and that was true early on.
So I had TargetedTraffic.com in my portfolio and so it was. Even tho we are known as TRAFFIC.
But this weekend I was offered a domain that of course I could not resist. Traffic.me.
Now I may use it personally at some point and speaking of point it is pointed right here for now.
Did I think about using Traffic.me as our new home? Yes I did. And maybe someday I will. But today I can't. I won't. I would really love to. But as a marketing guy.....just can't allow myself to do it. Just like my Rick.tv and Rick.co. I love them, but it would be hard to use them. The Rick.tv probably has the best shot if I ever go that direction. That is the most ripe one from where I sit.
But here is the point. I always re-evaluate. Each new tidbit requires re-evaluation. But this is an example of a real world dilemma. I wish I could afford Traffic.com but I can't. Rick.com will likely never be on the market in my lifetime. So faced with the same decision many others face I know what I have to do.
