    Does he mean brokered the deal or did he buy it from OMG and then flip it?

    I think dnjournal made a mistake listing cruises.com.au in their charts. Thankfully they haven't lowered the bar by putting this in.

    The fact that there is no actual price stated and that it was sold "as part of package". Sounds to me like there never was an actual price for the name, if there was it wouldn't be hard to say what it was.

    If any think the cruises domain looked like more established site and content.
    The CarLoans site looks more like a parked style site with content pages.

    Agree, which I why I think cruises.com.au should have never been reported as a "domain sale".

    Whichever way you look at it, it has been a HUGE couple of months for OMG!

    A lot of value, not accounted for, is the search engine rankings and previous SEO work. The content, not so much.

    We are getting quite a lot of interest in creditcards.com.au as well on the back of this. I am assuming that this will not be recognised as a Domain sale, either....We generate significant 6 figure revenues from it

    i'm seeing a REALLY fast increase in interest in domain name purchase requests from my clients for reasonable domains at reasonable prices.

    I recently sent out to 20 clients of my top clients a request to give me approval to purchase names on their behalf in the next year , and I had 20 approvals.

    I know others already do this, but its a first for me.

    I think the .com.au domain name space is a good place to be.
