    Snoopy is probably right on the money with his estimate.
    My thought was 7 figures, but less than the original $5.1 million sale.

    Yeah, I think you're right. The buyer has to be willing to compete with Amazon and most businesses in the space use brandables. Great name, however, probably too generic in the current market to fetch more than the original 5.1 million dollar sale.

    Agree, I think it is the type of domain that is somewhat out of favour because the exact match won't mean nearly as much as it did in 2009 due to Google changes.

    Still would function well a brand but who is the likely buyer now? Amazon, Walmart? Now sure how much interest there will be from from those really enormous companies. Think it is the type of name that has declined in value.

    do you think that google trashed the EMD to create a level field which has boosted SEO company profits but also........and more importantly.......their own !
    "kkkkangaroooooo.com" can google adword rank for whatever you want it to if you pay google and do it the right way, its just the deepest pockets now.
    the only step aside is taking the "brandable" $$$$$ leap and by passing google all together, but even "youtube" is one of the most SEARCHED terms each day !!!!

    Yes, I think they have a keen interest in making domains less important.

    A good buy for a China investor. $5 million USD is not much for many suitable buyers.

    A word China Consumers also know plus has the .com status they are more than happy to pay for.
