    Hi Guys & Gals,

    Thought I would share this from Domain Sherpa and their interview with Sedo's number one domain broker. This is his list in regards to what to look for in a premium domain:

    The 15 factors for assessing premium domain names include:

    Top level domain
    Generic one word
    Global monthly search
    Generic branding
    Average cost per click (CPC)
    SEO commerical interest
    Paid ads for keyword
    Hard to misspell?
    Monthly parking revenue
    Average monthly uniques
    Marketability
    Industry targets
    Core sales prospects
    Timeframe to sale
    Developed site?

    Bonus: Comparison sales (the “gut check”)

    #1 rule of sales: Start as high as possible in the food chain (or get an inside referral)
    #2 rule of sales: Create a sense of urgency
