A “Facebook Ads” Platform COULD Save the Parking Industry

Posted on 31 October 2011 by Andrei

In my opinion, an advertising platform powered by Facebook would represent excellent news for our industry.

Say Goodbye to $1 International PayPal Masspay Payments

Posted on 31 October 2011 by Andrei

It seems that as of this month, PayPal no longer offers international masspay payments at $1 each. Instead of $1, you’ll be paying 2% of the amount that is being sent with a maximum which varies depending on the country you are from and the country you are sending to (in most cases, the maximum seems to be $45).

Have a Question? Get Ready to Receive Answers from… Google?!?

Posted on 28 October 2011 by Andrei

It seems that for some queries, Google is giving you answers instead of simply delivering search results. And I’m not talking about stuff like currency conversions (for example if you perform a search for the term “100 USD to EUR”), I’m talking about actual questions. For example, perform a search for the term “who are the founders of google?” and the following message will be displayed above all search results:

If You Bought a Traffic Multiple Domain in 2007…

Posted on 12 October 2011 by Andrei

… how do things stand in 2011? Obviously a rhetorical question and the point I’m trying to get across should be quite obvious: if we’re talking about an industry as volatile as the parking business, domain revenue cannot be considered a reliable stand-alone metric for the simple reason that things can (and will) change in a heartbeat.

Random Sunday Question: On a Scale of One to Ten…

Posted on 09 October 2011 by Andrei

… how would you rate your current involvement in the domaining industry at this point and how would you like things to stand in the future? 1 would mean something like “not even a hobby” whereas 10 would mean something like “full time” in an obsessive compulsive way haha.

Firefox 7 – Good News for Domains

Posted on 01 October 2011 by Andrei

I upgraded to Firefox 7 earlier today and at this point, there are two features which make domains stand out: first of all, the http:// part has been removed and this makes it possible for the domain to receive more “attention” (as you can see if you take a look at the screenshot) and secondly, the actual domain (so domainingtips.com, for example) is displayed using a different and more visible color.
