The 2072 Olympics and the domaining business


Did you know that the domain 2072olympics.com is not yet taken? Yep, it’s not yet taken as of today. I just checked from 2016 to 2068 because I’m that curious. The olympics committee and some domain squatters registered a lot of domains from 2012Olympics.com to 2068Olympics.com. The 2068 Olympics domain is not registered by an official committee of the Olympics. I wonder why domainers want to spend a lot of money for it and registered it 56 years early! I don’t know if they can sell it in the future or just use the domain.

Yes boys and girls! Another major PR update occurred yesterday and my PageRank is still the same. I know some domain owners who gained PR from PR6 to 7 and some domains declined its PR. Some PR0 sites increase to PR4, some remained, just like my domain, and some or not lucky enough to have a PR increase.

PageRank Rollback: Twitter is back to PR9 & Google is now PR10


Yep, another PR update occurred a few days ago. Majority of the domains that gained PR, rolled back to their original PR. Some maintained their PageRank, and some gained a +1 PageRank after the last PR update. A few sites gained PageRank twice, but those are new sites from PR0 who gained PR2 last June 27, and promoted to PR3 last July 18.

Google wipes out all .CO.CC domains, including www.co.cc itself


Too bad for .CO.CC owners, specially those who are using it as their main domain. Google recently wiped out all .CO.CC domains from its search index. Why? Because users of .CO.CC abused it. A lot of .CO.CC blogs and websites contain nothing but 100% spam, re-posted content, aggregated articles, and nothing but a bunch of gibberish data.
