Domain King announces Blog

Good evening folks!!

In 1999 I started a blog. It wasn't called a blog then. It was/is called a "Chatboard" and I started posting about domain names in 1999 on my own chatboard.  As early as 1996 on other chatboards. Then one day blogs came along and what I had been doing for 9 or 10 years became all the rage. So I think I will enjoy this updated format and my wish is for me to say something that changes your life. Changes your life in a profound way.


In a few days I will start a blog. It won't be updated everyday. Only when I have something I think is useful to say. So stay tuned and in the next few days I'll see what I can build and how I can present it to you in an exciting manner! Plus I'll ruffle a few feathers and mix it up a little bit. We'll expose the cons and let you know the real skinny on payouts. Pissing folks off is my specialty. It's easy to do when you stick to the numbers and the numbers don't jive with what they say or what they promise.

I am a "Numbers guy." One quote I am famous for is "Numbers I trust, people I don't." A 9 is a 9 forever. There is nothing we can do to change a 9. It is not my 9 or your 9, it is just 9. So we pay attention to the numbers and eliminate the bullshit.

So stay tuned . This blog will launch on Monday April 9th and maybe even sooner! I will share what little I know. It may be what you already know, but you also may find one little tidbit that can change your life. I am out to have life changing things happen here for those that take the time to THINK, READ and STOP.

    I heard on Frank Schilling and the Sahar Sharid’s blogs that you were starting this.
    They think very highly of you and that’s enough for me.
    Already, by your description of yourself, I know I’m going to enjoy this.
    Looking forward to reading what you have to share.

    Damn, that was quick!
    I’m pretty confident that people will get some good education, if they can keep an open mind.

    Congrats on this. Tia has a great idea. You can monetize it by selling Tommy Bahama shirts. You can buy them wholesale from the dry cleaners at 28th and Fed (behind me) and they will drop ship.

    I thought when you were interviewed years ago you claimed your initial investment was $10,000. Why the $1-million angel today ? Have domain names decreased in value ? Are generics with steady targetted traffic easier to obtain then 7 years ago ? If you actually were successful shouldn’t your initial $10,000 investment be worth $100 million today ? O is it now easier to do so vs. 7 years ago ? Seems like the two statements dont jive. Nancy

    Congratulations on your new blog venture Rick!
    Over the past 5 years that I’ve gotten to know you personally, I’ve learned a great deal about successful domain investing from you and you’re one of the few domain pioneers and entrepreneurs that I know truly enjoys sharing your valuable industry knowledge and overall business wisdom with others, even with new guys just getting started and investing in their first domains.
    My advice to all is listen and read this man’s words and investing guidance over and over, because you can bank on his foresight. He sees miles ahead of everyone else in the domaining industry and is a true visionary. Rick’s also a marketing and dealmaking genius and you’ll know certain the coming trends just by studying his acquisition moves.
    Thank you my friend for all the great things you’ve done and continue to do to make this business of domaining such an exciting, fun, and profitable industry to be a part of.

    Hi Rick!
    Congrats on the new blog.
    one clue you alluded to is that you tend to speak in”cryptic” phrases. It may be hard for some to comprehend, but I really have enjoyed reading”in between the lines” of your posts!
    I started domaining in late 2001 and I can say it’s still room for newcomers to enter this biz.
    At an average of only $9.00 a year for domain registration, it’s the cheapest and easiest property to manage in the world. Something that you could possibly develop into a multi million dollar enterprise.
    Just look at YouTube for example
    Wishing us all continued success!

    Great Material but aside from all the positives where can a novice seek info on how to get advertisers to a page or get paid for T-R-A-F-F-I-C that is routed to websites that sell products. I am asking about the basics of launching a page from scratch. Time and info appreciated.

  18. Wise

    You have risen to the occasion once again.
    So, it’s (NOT T-R-A-F-F-I-C) but Traffic. I get the picture but where do you purchase such Traffic (Coffee Shop – Street Corners – Local Mall)? You mentioned word of mouth is one of the best forms of advertisement.
    There is no doubt that you have made millions from your foresight but what is to say that there will not be a new way of conducting searches on the web where HOTEL.COM will become less relevant an asset to the Hyatt or Starwood Group. I heard that people will be able to register Chinese characters instead of using a – z (alphabet). How will this play into the world of search in the years to come given that the people which speak Chinese are large in number.

  19. Wise

    You have inspired me to buy my first domain – I feel like I am part of THE CLUB now. MADISON AVENUE HOTELS is the name – Though not yet developed I expect it to make more than the 8 dollars that I invested.
    I look forward towards the invalauble information that you will provide the readers of your blog and many THANKS IN ADVANCE for the time.
