When we see big prices on GoDaddy auctions where the name seems to not hold much value, it’s a backlinks play. So I saw X8Bet.com close today for $67,666. I immediately went to Ahrefs.com to see how many backlinks the domain had and it turned out to be 3. A Domain Rating of 0.
A Google search revealed that if we switch the X and the 8 to 8Xbet.com and we have an international sportsbook based in Asia. They are an official betting partner for Premier League defending champions Manchester City.
The number seems high for this domain name and it will be interesting to see if it gets paid, or rolled back.
