    many things.

    I called godaddy and the guy acted like a complete idiot. I asked how to search with the "Buy Now" filtered out and he could not even help me with that. I wanted to set my search so I only viewed fresh drops. The guy didn't know sh!t from shinola.

    Just looking it over, I think all the $10 domains with one bid are all where someone put it on backorder and they have to wait for it to go through the bidding auction.

    anyone have any filter tips?

    Good deduction on the names with one bid.

    You could try studying the timeline and working with the filters more, but IMHO the best options for you are probably either using scripts to parse their RSS feeds, which is pretty easy if you know scripting, or you could use ScrapeBox's TDNAM scraper. freshdrop used to be cool but is unreasonably expensive now (are they even still in business with that pricing model?).

    I think you could write a script (like in Perl) to find all the domains listed in recent_feed_all.xml from their FTP page, and search for each domain in closeouts.xml. If its not there then its what you looking for.

    I never looked at the recent feed so I rally don't know whats in there.
