    Though, it is good to attend the conference but due to some circumstances beyond my capacity for now. I hope we can have the review about the traffic on on your arrival. From my end here, it can be very expensive going there for two reasons i.e. VIsa and the expenses behind it.
    So, I as a person waiting to read from you. Cheers and Thanks.

  2. NEIL says:!!!

    Good Luck!

    Looking forward to seeing The Greatest News!


  3. .CLUB is looking forward to attending Traffic. I never had a chance to make it to Fort Lauderdale, but can’t wait to make it to Vegas.

    If you are interested in talking to us about investing in .CLUB names….traffic would be a great place to talk about it.

    I attended my first TRAFFIC conference back in October and for all the people watching the video and are on the fence on whether to go or not to go ….. GO. This is a wonderful conference that you will learn and earn a lot from. Obviously the last conference was only my first one so I was really enjoyed getting to meet with everyone and spend time with the people. Rick is also totally right on where to stay. You really need to stay at the conference hotel. I did and it made everything so wonderful and easy. If I needed to run back to my room to get something, it was only a minute away. It is well worth the money and on top of that, its a great experience and fun. I highly recommend it. Thanks Rick and Howard.

    good luck with traffic show…

    few las vegas tips:

    if u are planning to gamble, sign up for players card and u will get free rooms, free food, free show passes, etc.

    ALL casino hotels give u FREE rooms if u gamble.

    i have NEVER paid for hotel rooms in vegas.

    never pay for taxi to stripclubs…ask any limo driver and they will take u to the stripclub for FREE.

    Good Luck

    The decreasing views on youtube could be because viewers are switching to the website.

    Another very likely reason could be that the domain initially didn’t rank very high so the same videos on youtube were ranking higher in the search engine.

    A third reason could be that Michael did some marketing or a press release or some other advertising that pointed to that first episode or maybe other blogs linked to it because it’s the first show.

    The steady decrease that Rick describes doesn’t really sound like people are losing interest in domains. I would expect some fluctuation if that were the case. It sounds more like people shifting to the main website.

    I doubt Michael will release his stats, but one way to spy on him is to watch the stats for his Facebook Likes.

    Interesting observation, Rick. The numbers of Domain Sherpa show viewers on Youtube are really low, indicating lack of interest from the general public. I just attended a .club webinar few days ago and only a handful of folks attended.
