The expired auction for Examiner.com is already flying, closing in on $70,000 with over a week to go.
Examiner.com was an American news website based in Denver, Colorado, that operated using a network of “pro–am contributors”‘ for content. It had various local editions with contributors posting city-based items tailored to 238 markets throughout the United States and parts of Canada in two putative national editions, one for each country.
As of early 2014, Examiner.com was a property of Philip Anschutz-owned AEG, and announced it would be partnering closely with ticket merchant AXS. Subsequently, Examiner operations were announced to be shutting down on July 10, 2016.
The site has a strong link profile and this time matches up with being a one word generic.com. When we look at YMCDN.com or Recipe4Living.com those are expired websites that went for great prices due to their backlink profile. No one would really want to brand around those names starting a new. But with examiner.com you have a one word .com and a better, trust and citation flow according to Majestic.com. A lot of valuable links
