    I just got lucky and snagged what I call a dream domain. It's a 33k exact search term, but it's also a perfect domain for an authority site so it'll generate traffic from tons of kw's and long tail kw's when I start building it.

    When I searched all extensions just about everything was taken, even the spam extensions ie mobi, biz, ws, me were all taken but there sit .ORG

    I did a little checking and it just expires yesterday! Wow killer timing for sure..

    Anybody ever snag a true DREAM domain??

    a dot org may be hard to sell though depending on the niche. What niche is it?

    Yes, I used to be a huge domainer. I have come across several "dream" domains back during my domaining days. I keep them all parked for now but i am currently trying to develop one. I do get nice offers once in awhile though for them.

    My best is a .org with 110k monthly searches. My best .com has 18k monthly searches. I have a bunch of decent 1 word domains as well.

    Be careful that it is not a branded domain. Most of the high search domains people pic up are branded and are a liability, not an asset.

    Those are pretty awesome.

    Are there tools to monitor domains/exact searches/expiration and buy them automatically as they become available?

    Yeah, lots.

    I used to dropcatch .uk domains everyday using a script I developed from scratch myself. I once sold one for £4,000 a few days after catching it for £6!

    Those were the days when skill played a big part :) There's that many people doing it nowadays that it's nearly all down to luck!

    How would you guys define a 'profitable' high value domain?
    I found a couple 20k .com domains, but they suck (from my point of view). something like citylibrary.com
    You get the idea

    Regards,
    Castiel.
