This was too funny not to share

Post by Forest-Fairy on Mon Apr 13, 2015 1:19 am

Ok so I recently purchased the domain name VancouverFacePainting.ca

Plan is to transfer my website to that address and have my old web address LookingGlassPainting.com forward visitors to the new site over the course of a year or so, and phase old the old web domain (might still keep it, haven't decided).

Choosing this domain will help with google search results, and having the .ca instead of .com will help with local searches from Canadians, AND help me show up higher in search results. Win Win all around, I was actually surprised it wasn't taken!

So here's the funny part.....

Out of curiosity i went to VancouverFacePainting.com just to see if that was taken, and if so by whom. Turns out it was taken by a domain resale company. Basically they buy popular search term domains really cheap, then try to sell them to companies for a higher price.

So, today I get an email (no idea how they got my email).

How is business coming along? Are you still interested in the vancouverfacepainting.com domain name?
 
The asking price will be in the thousands of dollars.

Seriously though, that response doesn't even sound like they're trying to sell it... "The asking price will be in the thousands of dollars."  Why not just give an exact number... am I going to write you a cheque for a random number of thousands of dollars?  Oh, hellz no...
