Taking a pause from the serious matters of the day, we all know that campaigning for Governor requires a boatload of cash on hand. But once the votes are tallied and the post-election parties over, what’s left to sell on the open market? Very little except for your campaign website URL (if anyone wanted it). The good folks over at DNScoop.com have a nifty service where they estimate the potential value of a URL based on links to the website, traffic, age of the domain, verbiage in the URL, site category, domain keyword popularity and overall occurrences of the domain name on the web. Who chose their campaign website name best?
[UPDATE] Evidently massive shifts on the internets occurred between when I originally penned this post on Tuesday and finally got around to putting it up on Saturday. Indeed, several sites now have value (allegedly). Below are the revised numbers/values. Thanks to those who did the verification.
