In this video, we’re going to break down how we like to use a tool called ZFbot.
We’ve talked about this tool before in our other post. I really don’t know what else to say about it besides it’s pretty amazing…I’m surprised it’s free (please, don’t start charging for it though).
Why is it important?
Everyone has their own style when it comes to purchasing domain names. Whether it’s looking at search volume, cpc, advertising competition etc. There is always SOMETHING a “domainer” likes to see before they purchase a domain name for potential resale. This is where the ZFbot tool helps us….wonderfully.
We may be wrong but what makes sense to us is to make sure we focus on domain names that OTHER PEOPLE are already USING that are HIGHLY similar to the domain we want to purchase.
Ok…let me break this down for you (just watch our video though, we break it down better).
Let’s say you want to buy a domain name such as RadioSounds.com. What the ZFbot tool does (if you set up the search functions correctly) will go through the search engines and gather up up to 10,000 websites (for free) that have the term “Radio Sounds” in it. So basically you could get see results come back such as
The point is, you probably have the “best” version of the domain name since you have RadioSounds.com. When you see several websites with similar versions of the domain name you acquired and may want to sell this should tell you a few things:
- Your a domain picking ninja
- There could be several “end users” who could potentially want to upgrade to the domain you have
- If you have the .COM version, it puts you are a better position for an “end user” to come knocking on your door
We break it down a in our video here. Just remember, you are looking to see that other ESTABLISHED, REAL are using domains similiar to yours. We don’t like to see websites parked because more than likely it isn’t a potential end user using the domain. It’s probably someone who buys and sells domains as well.
Finding established businesses with longer, funkier, uglier versions of your domain name is sweeeet.
If you have questions about this tool, feel free to let us know below. A big THANK YOU to the creator of the tool as well.
