I’ve set a date. TopDrops Beta is going to launch on Monday, January 9th. TopDrops.com is only focusing on domains with at least some exact search volume. See some of my today’s domain picks.
It’s been a great experience working on TopDrops. It’s not just my passion with domaining and especially with the dropping process and finding great domains, but I also changed my development focus upside down. Not only I chose the best framework and tools available to build TopDrops but also, my greater focus was to build a pleasant, user friendly site. I have to admit, in my previous projects, the Web UI or user friendliness has never been my focus. I wanted to change that with TopDrops. And this is the start, in 2012, my plan is to do the same for most of the projects, the exceptions would be the mini projects. But again, I don’t have a whole lot of those, my mini sites have at least 100 pages. So I’m not sure if I can call them mini sites.
TopDrops is turning out to be the tool I love. In fact, I myself have made it my daily habit to go and see what domains I can find/get. But I must say, I hate the auctioning process. Somehow, I’m never able to participate at the auctions because of my schedule or I just forget or maybe because of time zone. I lost several domains recently because of this. One of them was GuitarGame.com, I found it via TopDrops. I don’t really have passion for Guitars but it would have been a great flip. The guy got it for like $70 because I forgot and it was scheduled at like 8 am on new year’s day or something like that. I wasn’t really going to be able to wake up at 8 am after such a night, lol. But anyway, what should I build next? Domain Auction Sniper? lol.
Here is a list of my picks for today:
