Marchex Making The Most Of Its Parked Domain RoyalWedding.com
With the one of the biggest event just day away, Marchex is making the most of one of its domain names, RoyalWedding.com
The domain which is parked, has a countdown clock at the top to the start of the wedding, and has a picture of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in the middle of the page.
The site even has a picture of Princess Diana’s ring which The Prince gave to Ms. Middleton.
The parked page is returning results for all things related to the royal wedding and to weddings in general and should covert quite well.
RoyalWedding.com should be getting some HUGE traffic this week as tens of millions will be watching the royal wedding from all over the world.
The domain according to Complete got 1,500 visitors a month but that was last month and Alexa is showing the domain name as being in the top 4M in terms of traffic.
Most networks in the US are hyping up their coverage the wedding which generally starts at 4AM EST on Friday.
If you want to see all the coverage the Royal Wedding is going to receive, the LA Times has a blog post dedicated to the subject.
Congrats to Marchex on making the most of a great and timely domain name.
Last week on Namejet a typo of Royal Family royallfamily.com sold for $1,877.
The other domain which should get some nice traffic this week is TheRoyalWedding.com which is going to a plain parked page at Sedo.com.
The whois is showing the domain to be under privacy.
TheRoyalWedding.com also maybe for sale for as little as $995.
Sedo.com is showing 2,265 visitors in the previous 31 days
