    Listening to those stories about Google launching Google Me soon and facing the Facebook threat of overtaking #1 website position, I was thinking about top traffic trends.

    I checked Alexa top list here: www{.}alexa{.}com{/}topsites[/url] and found out the top two sites were getting over 100 million visits per day:
    Google ~165mil
    and Facebook ~135mil unique visits per day.

    Since Facebook was trying to overtake the top position using their latest Facebook Graph Api, I guess Google is working their asses off to make that less possible.

    Having this in mind, I suppose Google Me would have to enter top 5 list according to the traffic, to be able to win the battle.

    I was thinking of those large traffic numbers and I guess it would have been interesting to get some GoogleMe typos, so I registered some domains, including one very nice GoogleMe typo. Its name was made according to one particular Facebook domain typo, using the very same analogy, and this domain is getting 50k-100k visitors daily.

    So, at this point, what is your opinion: are Google Me domain typos any worth?

    grab 'em while you can, even if they are worthless, you will be able to sell them to dumb speculators the day the site launches, if you can get them for the usual $10 and don't have to go to auction, it is worth it.

    load this full of ad-sense ads in the mean time and get some cash out of it, with that many visitors, you won't make a fortune but you'll still get somethin

    If they will be worth something be sure that Google will call for them.

    Google will just send you C&D letters and inform you to transfer the domains, if you use Google in the domain, or a render to their trademarks like Gogle or Googlee they will still sue you.

    But how do you even know they are going to use Googleme.com for example they may just alter the current Google.com domain to incorporate the ME product into it.

    They can't sue you if you are using the domain for different purposes..

    for example:
    http://iowngoogle.com/

    The story behind that domain is, the guy owns a dog, and the dog's name is Google, nothing wrong with that domain, and he can have it all he wants. He received many copyright emails, but Google can't do shit.
