In my thread I said a domain name had a 9 years life before expiring and in that thread I gave close example and someone figured out the real name and had registered the domain name on the 27th... I guess somethings drifted away my attention to other things.
The name was actually copper-mine.com and my example was gold-mine.com, you see. Silly me.
There are about 45000 local searches for that term... and the average cpc is $1... I missed something here.
I will have to go back and dig into my expired domain name list and see if I could find any better.... Dont make this kind of mistake.
