I came across an auction for the domain name, AffiliateDirectory.com, and it got me curious. What is a domain like that worth?
According to Pool.com, the current price is $5,100. I don’t see any indication if that’s the starting bid, or if there are other bids on it, but it’s running through approximately 11am EDT, Wed., Oct. 5, 2005.
One thing appears fairly sure – the domain doesn’t come with much built in traffic. While Alexa is a very imperfect measure, they have this domain listed at 476,738 currently. There is no Google PageRank showing in the Google toolbar.
It’s a descriptive, if not long, domain name. So people going there likely know what they are getting. Hmmm… will be interesting to see what the market bears.
