The Domain King aka Rick Schwartz isn’t a man to mince his words… He tells you exactly what is on his mind and in a recent tweet and subsequent tweet where Rick has stated that he may retweet every day about the automated appraisals that EstiBot.com & GoDaddy.com currently offer to the market, that they need to be removed.
Rick feels that these automated appraisals are hurting our domain name industry, and gives a great example of where GoBet.com which recently sold for $850,000 USD by Rick, has an estibot automated appraisal of $7,100 USD, and GoDaddy values it over $25,000 USD.
I myself use Estibot appraisals in our Dynadot Domain Name Auction Lists and GoDaddy GoValue Estimates too when I publish our daily posts, some might say am I being hypercritical posting this here when using both, but please note these aren’t my words this is what Rick has said and I would love to hear what you think? The thread at NamePros already has 23 comments, so will you give yours?
Have your say? I have started a thread over at NamePros retweet by Rick over on twitter.
