So a couple of days ago it was FlyMe.com closing at $14,283 on DropCatch, and Wednesday we had ReviewMe.com close at $61,500 on GoDaddy.
This name was purchased in 2006 for $10,000. It became a live website that paid bloggers to review websites.
Lynn Terry from ClickNewz.com published an article years ago on how the site worked at the time.
From the article:
How It Works
Once your blog is approved at ReviewMe, a value is assigned to your reviews. You are actually paid 50% of this rate – so with a value of $100, I will earn $50 for each review that I select and post on my blog.
I took the first (and most obvious) Review Opportunity that was available, which was to review the ReviewMe site itself. This, of course, being my review (that you are reading now). Quite honestly, I would have shared all of these same details with you once I signed up and tested the system anyway… which is what I love most about these blogging opps.
So for the record, I’ll earn $50 for this review – though you can rest assured that I am sharing my honest opinion with you. If they werent worth working with, I wouldnt waste my time 😉 .
Taking this first Review Opp gave me the opportunity to test out the system and see how they operate. I have to admit… it’s very smooth. Once I accepted the ‘opp’, I was given 48 hours to complete the review and post it to my blog – and then log in to the system to confirm completion.
There are live sites on ReviewMe.com.au and ReviewMe.us. The two word phrase is registered in 36 extensions.
Now just like the names in the article I wrote last week that actually never closed on GoDaddy. This name is registered at enom, so the registrant can still renew the domain name.
