What do you think about .CO domain names with nice keywords....?

    I have .CO domains that are key words people frequently search on Google and nice for many businesses. Was a lot of work on anaysis on Google before buying them.

    You can see attached file with statistics about popularity of each domain name (keyword) on Google. View attachment 50586

    What do you think? I will appreciate any suggestions where to sell them?

    However .co was a generic global domain but it didnt turned out to be a great extension to register your domains just like .biz etc. However good domains will still be valuable.

    its too early for anyone to forecast the future of CO domains, but i feel that any good one word keyword domain will sell and be worth money.

    Personally, I dont see any value in the hyphenated domains you have.

    I hate to be harsh especially considering the fact that you do have some nice key words within your domains, but I'm Not a big fan of .co's.

    They're being marketed in the United States as TLD's through GoDaddy among others, but they are not. They're Colombia domain extensions and will not hold very much value here in the US. Plus, they are going for almost $30.00 per year. That's crazy! In addition, all the short .co's were held by the Colombian government and auctioned off at much higher prices.

    You're going to be better off getting what you can for them before the renewal fees and getting .us domains. if you're not going with a TLD, at least go with a TLD here in the United States such as .us. Plus, there are plenty of good ones left and currently on sale at GoDaddy.

    With all the domains she has, in two to three years she would have already handed over very hefty sum for renewal fees to keep them. Plus, there are a ton of new extensions being released at more reasonable rates. Furthermore, there are already a ton of country specific domain extensions available. .co is no different. The only difference is they are charging three times as much for these domains.

    I think .CO domains are not that good.
    Even if they are unique domains, .COM and kind of .NET are the best domains.

    Best regards.

    .CO is easy to recognize, simple to remember and flexible to use. It offers international recognition in a fresh landscape where you can still choose the name you want, not just settle for what’s available.

    I respectfully disagree. It is only one letter shorter than .com and there are plenty of easy to remember domain extensions that are much less expensive. It does not by any means what so ever offer international recognition. It is a Colombian domain extension. The Colombian government owns and runs the extension, just like the US government owns and runs the .us extension. If you're in the us, register the .us extension. There are also plenty of good ones available. If you're in Colombia get the .co. If you want international recognition, get a .com, .net ect, but not a domain that represents a specific country.

    I think only .com domains have an intrinsic value of more than a few dollars except in rare cases

    I think the dashes in some of the names is a second strike against those, what are the chances you will get type-in traffic expecting the person to remember the .co and then also remember to insert a dash? tough hurdle

    developed and relying on search traffic, maybe the keywords will work, incredible sites get ranked regardless

    good luck

    report if you have any sales

    .CO domains with good keywords have a very high value in the market and .CO domains companies specially like to buy as .CO relates to company :)

    They don't relate to companies. The CO stands for Colombia! Just like .br stands for Brazil and .uk stands for United Kingdom. There have been a few companies using the .co as a marking ploy because it sounds catchy in certain instances. In other instances other domain extensions might sound catchy. But those companies, for instance Overstock kept their original .com domain for all intensive purposes other than a catchy commercial. With all the new domain extension applications out there and rumors that many will be approved, an overpriced country specific domain like .co will not keep any value.

    On top of that factor in the bad economy and the very high renewal fees of .co ... it just doesn't make sense to get this domain extension unless you live in Colombia.

    That's true. There are a lot of domainers who dream and think that .co will take the place of .com :p
