Is this guy for real? seen this?

9 replies
Ok, I'm gonna have to word this right as I don't want this thread deleted, but I was selling some personal stuff on that well known auction site, and once finnished putting my items up I thought I'd have a bit of a browse! I searched for domains just out of interest and came across one in the listing for michealjoejackson dot com, the guy or girl selling this is asking for $5million for the domain name!!!! I had to read the description and he/she states that anyone who purchases this domain can use it to sell sell sell!!!

Is he/she for real??? I've tried dabbling in domains and get it seriously wrong on many occasions! for example I saw on flippa that a domain bestcouponcodes dot com sold for tens of thousands and the dot net version went for a couple of thousand, so I purchased topcouponcodes dot net expecting $20-$50 at least and never got a bid over $4!! like I said I'm clueless and certainly don't make any money on domains, I'll stick to what I'm good at, but is the michealjoejackson dot com worth anything or is this guy a complete chancer??? personally I'd value it a few dollars but like I said I'm a complete numbnuts on the subject!

anyone care to shed any domain experience on this domain? or is he like I said 'a complete chancer'?

    I'd say he/she is a "chancer" as you put it. But you never know, what if someone did buy it for 5 million? Probably not likely, but it could happen. I think it was business dot com sold for like 8 Million back several years ago.

    Of course he wont get $5million for that domain. Its priced that high so it will show up 1st in sort by price for whatever category hes going for.

    But the 5 million asking price is cheap compared to the $21 million that others are asking for their domains LOL
    Traffic + Conversions = $$$$

    The guy is a dreamer hoping that someone is stupid enough to pay for that domain. I don't know if it's deliberate, but the way you've spelled Michael is a typo so it would be a typo domain and the Joe in the middle is not great. If the domain was, maybe he'd get a good price, but I doubt he would get $5M for it, but then who knows.

    I've tried that also ... buying a domain that is very similar to a domain that made big bucks and it never worked for me either. lol.

    I honestly take those as jokes, but hey I could be wrong maybe there is a guy foolish enough to buy it for 5 million, than maybe I will post a few sites for a few million as well.

      If you pitch in low then you'll get even lower bids. If you pitch in high then some numbskull will come along and no doubt make you a lower offer . . . but on the high side - if you see what I mean

    No intention of selling the domain. All they are doing is using the auction as a incoming traffic link to whatever else they are promoting. This is a well used stratagy 5 years ago, people must still be buying these eBooks with outdated stratagies...

    No intention of selling. He gets a lot of people curious, people generate free traffic for him by posting on forums, lots of people click ads on his parked page.
