Hype-Ins vs Type-Ins

Morning Folks!!

As you no doubt saw yesterday, the 'Big Hype' is already starting x 1900 coming soon. Here is where it all goes off the rails. The HYPE vs the real Type-ins that are not and will not be there. The foundation for WHY .com is the leader. Without that foundation, then the dynamics change. But even then there are other foundations left to support .com. Like every major company in the world operating and headquartering ALL operations from the .com.

So we are going to have to endure all this HYPE that may or may not be real and will be framed in certain ways. So when you hear the HYPE then ASK the right questions or you will be a victim of a hype-in not a type-in!

So the logical missing part of this equation is how many different companies and different owners actually registered those? How many were domainers less than an arms length and how many were end users that are going to make their mark on .heretodaygonetomorrow. I think 2 or 4 people registering 4000 names is different than 2000-4000 people getting one or two each for example.

I wish Div nothing but good luck as I will with each new .whatever. But when it comes to what I see in each, I will never color it up to please. Reality has to trump Hype or we have lost our minds and souls!

Have a GREAT Day!

    Yesterday I also read about the trouble candy.com is facing with continued exclusion from Google’s search engine for a backlinking penalty. The company sounds like they’re in dire need of some traffic and perhaps the type ins are not a sustainable business strategy for them?
    Someone suggested they spend more time on their social media management which appears they’ve done very little of if any, instead of paying large sums of money to remedy previous blackhat backlinking misgivings by a prior Seo management firm.
    Candy.com is not in the search engine results for the term”candy” and appears on the first page only when candy.com is typed in the browser.
    I’d love to hear your thoughts. Will you be addressing any of this soon?

    .pw for professional web sounds way way way off beam. Directi etc would be better off approaching big players with the potential desire to have a dedicated tld and then providing that service. Like .pwc
