Two word mTLD Premium .mobi with about 40,000,000 monthly searches according to adwords keyword tool. In the right hands the ROI on $8,750 for CheapFlights.mobi could be measured in months not years. (sold by a Mobility member BTW) A look at the whois though suggests this is a speculator purchase, we'll see for sure soon enough.

massive search term and worth this all day long

this was a premium domain originally sold by registry. and bought by 'pureyogi'

congrats on sale

how much was paid in first place though?

also i would be really thrilled if cheapflights.co.uk (big site) had bought, but doesnt look like that

(sold by a Mobility member BTW)Bought (http://whoiz.mobi/cheapflights) by one as well: torreman
(http://mobility.mobi/member.php?u=5749)

how much was paid in first place though?It was originally bought as part of a compensation package from Sedo Auction III: http://mobility.mobi/showthread.php?t=34633

I don't know if the original buyer is allowed to disclose the price they paid for it.



Congrats to both members on this transaction. :thumbsup:

I was so pleased to see a (reasonably) decent .mobi sale on the front page of Sedo, that I rushed straight to the Recent Sales thread part of the forum to post the good news...only to find you lot had been discussing it all day...Lol


Great name....Bloody thing should be worth 5x that, in any decent world...:)

Hello,

I own the domains now indeed. This will become a new project for me.
Anyone got some suggestions about how to exploid it?
Iam a speculator for sure and follow my heart with this.
I cannot believe that a something that is being searched for 23-24 miljoen times a month cannot be something good.
