Greater New York Media Online Investments

Long Island, NY– Rarity means value out on Long Island and that is an understatement. How many high quality domain names are there for Greater New York Media? How many for Long Island? How many great domains are there for your niche industry?

Frank Schilling, a domain investor maverick, has a way with words in his assessment on the scarcity of meaningful, descriptive domain names that rarely hit the market in the many different verticals in business. The cream of the crop names are long gone Schilling says, and he elaborates by saying “Even if you back-up and cast as wide a net as possible, our decade of research and experience reveals perhaps 5–7 million words, numbers and phrases which ultimately have practical utility as a domain name. As you dig deeper, you begin to discover that perhaps 100 domain names or less make a meaningful website or descriptive-name for any given niche topic, with perhaps 5 or 10 being of very-good or excellent quality. When you consider the hundreds of millions of companies and individuals which want to control their own destiny and enhance the location of their website, there simply are not enough “good” names to go around.” (NAMedia)

Long Island and Greater New York media has how many category defining domain names? LongIsland.com (Website Since 1996) comes to mind first intuitively for Long Island. Amazingly, LongIsland.com is on auction Saturday January 23, 2010 at 1pm EST at the TRAFFIC Domain Conference in a competitive live domain auction held in Las Vegas: RickLatona.com. Rarely does a category geo-domain of this caliber trade in the open market. And how about the scarcity of a name for Long Island TV? LI.tv is your answer.

How many 2-letter combinations are there for any domain extension? Less than 1,400 based on a 26 letter alphabet and this clearly is evidence of the extreme rarity of a 2-letter domain. It is no wonder short 2 and 3-letter domain names have been such high selling domain assets. Growing up on the Long Island Sound we listened to LIR (Long Island Radio) while driving down the LIE (Long Island Expressway) or boating on the LI Sound so “LI” is ingrained in the minds of Long Islanders and the Tri-State Greater New York area’s population in the area of 14,000,000 (14 million). LI.tv is memorable. LI.tv is ideal for branding, co-branding or as an online video extension. LI.tv is a golden opportunity to stand above the crowd.
  
LI.tv is available for purchase or joint venture.

  • NHL.TV

The fast growth of online video is an emerging trend for brandable dotTV domain name development. The big time pros like ESPN and MLB are branding dotTV as online extensions to their dot-com Websites which puts the universal, intuitive, descriptive and meaningful dotTV on the International map. Media networks and sites offering online video using, muti-channeling and/or co-branding a dotTV online extension is a no-brainer. dotTV for Web video sites creates a branding strategy by using multimedia leverage as a smart, innovative and meaningful multi-channeling option.

Time Warner Embraces dotTV Domain Name ‘TNT.Tv’

TNT – home
New York, NY– Cable TV Channel TNT.Tv, owned by Turner Broadcasting (Time Warner), strategically uses the extremely rare three-letter dotTV domain name ‘TNT.Tv’ for TNT’s official Internet TV Website. New York-based Time Warner Inc., the world’s largest entertainment media giant, takes advantage of the intuitive dotTV domain name to internationally brand their big time Internet TV property- TNT.Tv.

Time Warner recognizes the power of cleverly naming and branding TNT with dotTV versus dot-com for Internet TV. TNT.Tv’s branding strategy is an ingenious, global marketing move. The term ‘TV’ is universal language spoken and understood by all or most of the world’s population.

TGIF Domain: LiveWebcast.TV

We skipped this week’s 2-For-Tuesday domains; however, here’s the TGIF domain name of the week- LiveWebcast.TV which is somewhat comparable to LiveStream.com though a dotTV domain name. LiveWebcast.TV has a more popular, intuitive ring to it, as evident by the more popular keywords- “Live Webcast” vs. “Live Stream”. Moreover, LiveWebcast.TV has a strategic, universal, classic dotTV extension for an online video Website. Point blank “Live Webcast” features a more relevant keyword combo than “Live Stream”. “Live Webcast” clearly has the better keyword search marketing stats (see below stats). Nonetheless, as you know, LiveStream.com recently sold for $100,000.

By the way, here’s “proof in the pudding”- check out the online video search term keyword stats: Goog search results for “Live Stream”= 3.63 million search results & don’t foreget LiveStream.com is the $100k name. What do you here? What do you SAY? The bottom line is the better & more effective keyword combo- “Live Webcast” is worthy and a force to be reckoned with- 5.03 million search results. But you don’t need me to point out the obvious. dotTV is a specialized niche for sites that operate solely as Internet TV/ Webcast site destinations.

Google Executive, N.Y. Times Compete for Local Ads in New Jersey- Bloomberg.com

Google Executive, N.Y. Times Wrestle in New Jersey for Local Ads – Bloomberg.com

New York, NY/ Maplewood, New Jersey– The New York Times joined the fray this month with a Maplewood blog. Their prize: online ads from local companies — the fastest- growing source of revenue for the news business. – Bloomberg.com

The New York Times does not own NewYork.com (Domain Investor Leland Hardy does), NewJersey.com or Maplewood.com as strategic online extensions to their NYTimes.com online property. If the New York Times used a premium geo-domain name strategy to attract local advertisers, they would gain a competitive advantage by multi-channeling their media company to compete in the tri-state (NY, NJ & CT) area’s regional online ad market.

Moreover, the Maplewood rivals described in the linked Bloomberg article clearly shows how some traditional and new media companies, as well as Madison Avenue, do not understand the power behind high-profile geo-domain names as online extensions to a media company’s brand. In this instance (read linked Bloomberg article by clicking this blogpost’s headline), the New York Times has created a blog geo-targeting Maplewood, New Jersey to compete for local advertisers by using a sub-domain (Maplewood.blogs/NYTimes.com). The competing Google executive is using the domain name Patch.com to geo-target the Maplewood local online advertising market.

More importantly, in order to geo-target the tri-state regional and local Internet ad market, media company’s would benefit greatly by using a geo-domain strategy of premium geo-domain names. Listed below are some of the Top premium dot-com & dot-tv geo-domain names that make perfect sense (if the extremely rare geo- domains were attainable) as an aggressive, strategic play for a major online media player competing for market penetration in the Greater New York tri-state new social media arena:

Top Tri-state Geo-Domain Names for NY, NJ & CT :

In sum, premium geo-domain names are the answer to the future of new social media and local search marketing.

Masters of Domain Names are Golden

The above major players in the domain industry control some of the world’s biggest domain name portfolios. Imagine the break up value of these companies? The value of extremely rare, high quality domain names are beyond price… a high-end domain name gem is priceless.

Geo-Video Domain Name- ‘Maui.Tv’ Trades for $1,000

Inside Domaining Breaking New:

Cambridge, MA– Sedo recently reported a recent LLLL.Tv (4L.Tv) domain trade, a video-related geo-domain name suitable for a local Internet Tv Travel Channel – Maui.Tv. Amazing domain value & a fantastic domain name acquisition when you think of the potential that this geo-domain name has developed into a Travel Vidcast, Surf Videocast and/or local Web Tv site. Maui, Hawaii, a famous tourist paradise, attracts a tourist population of well over 2 million travelers per year. The total tourist expenditures are estimated in the area of $3.9 billion (2005… Source Wikipedia.com). Imagine if you will for a moment, a domain investment for a mere $1,000 (this is NOT a type-o) that can be leveraged into a surfing, travel site &/or local Tv station in a dream vacation spot, perhaps this will be looked at years down the road as… “why didn’t I think of that?”.
