T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Conference

TRAFFIC Conference

The TRAFFIC domain conference in Miami (actually Hollywood) Florida is October 9-13,2007. Hosted by Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu, TRAFFIC East 2007 is also the annual meeting of the World Association of Domain Name Developers (WADND), which hosts the invitation-only TRAFFIC conference. The conference schedule is here, the Conference hotel is the Westin Diplomat, and Rick Schwartz has a blog here. Moniker is running a domain auction here.

TRAFFIC 2007 and SEO

Rick has included SEO in TRAFFIC 2007, because domainers are developing websites and they need to know more about the various sources of traffic avalable to them. Search engine traffic is part of it, as is social media. I’ve been invited to talk on SEO along with Brett Tabke, Bill Hartzer, and Matt Robson in a session entitled “Current trends in Search Engines and Domain Traffic”. I’ll focus on competing for search referral traffic, which of course means competing for the top spots in the SERps. I am very much looking forward to it.

      […] Adam Strong over at DomainNameNews just published the Moniker silent auction results, covering the domains that were not sold or not brought to the bay at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference in Miami. Of course it includes the BigFamousOnes like cowboys.com for $360k, but SEO/SEM practitioners should take note of the tail of that list. One hundred and eighty nine (189) domains sold for less than $700. That’s less than the consulting fee for chasing and acquiring a domain on behalf of a client. The way Moniker runs things, many of those domains were prepared in advance for easy transfer at Moniker. One hundred and fourteen (114) of them went for less than $400. As I suggested in Paying for Privilege, the rights to a domain represent a unique privilege to publish under a brand on the Internet. […]
