Wall Street Journal takes on Google Search.

5 Comments

Finally some push back on Google and their search engine manipulations. The Wall Street Journal reports on their investigation of Google today.

The upshot. from the article relating to the “image” of google as helping us all with and non-biased independent search of  the internet.

“That message often clashes with what happens behind the scenes. Over time, Google has increasingly re-engineered and interfered with search results, including through blacklisting websites, pushing its preferred results and editing autofill responses, according to a Wall Street Journal investigation.”

Internet Society .Org Money Grab, Any Upside?

2 Comments

EDITORIAL

Surprise, Surprise. ICANN enriches its own.  But, is there any upside? My only hope is a more powerful and well-funded .org can do the things Verisign hasn’t: promote the use of domain names in the face of the takeover of the browser bar by large captive search engines and social networks.

As we detailed before, because Verisign is beholden to shareholders and any marketing expense reduces earnings and could lower their billions in market value; they don’t spend to enforce the benefits of registering and owning domain names.

The .com registry is more a revolving door scheme where … Read the rest

A Buyers Perspective. Buying Your .Com From ‘Squatters’

2 Comments

Although a two year old Medium post, I think this read gives a pretty good take on the buyer’s side of the domain name process

My comments after reading.

  1. Its clear we don’t do a good jump of making the process easy or understandable. The one point that buyers do understand is using an escrow service to complete the transaction.
  2. Buyers still think myopically a world exists where the name they thought of should be available up until the moment they wanted it.  They cant imagine that if I didn’t own their name for resale, someone else could have clearly

Bonus Available Names List – Dictionary 1 word .io

Leave a Comment0

So the .io domain name extension seems to have some popularity, demand and sway among the Silicon Valley and Tech communities. Some domainers have had some success with .io   Some bloggers have hinted they plan to by more in 2020.

On the other hand, the most fearful downside has been expressed that .io may not even be a country at some point. The thought is names “should” still work.

But what to buy?  You can randomly spot .io domains others are bidding on in auctions in the most active postings from godaddy or namejet; or watch the park.io auctionsRead the rest

Why are Domain Names Important?

Why are Domain Names Important?

The only connection for your content that you truly own and control is on your domain name. And, it works for everyone globally.  All your content on search engines, social networks or apps and free email is shared – owned by others – under terms and conditions you may never understand.  Its important to own a domain name to hold your digital content.

So why do I constantly talk about these special assets called domain names?

Because as the most recognized part of a URL, or Universal Resource Locator, your domain name gives you the … Read the rest

CCtld News and Update

On our twice monthly Cctld update I’l look at the recent .US Town Hall meeting. My takeaway was a “reminder” during the call that the perception you have to be a US resident or incorporated business isn’t really true.  I’ll finish at the end with some available for registration prospects in the .US namespace.

For other updates, one of our sponsors, Toweb tracks news and updates and quick comments on their homepage.
