Don't know what is happening lately but between godaddy and dan I am getting so many low ball inquiries that I made a change to a $1000 minimum offer on both platforms.

I have long had a $1000 minimum on my private contact form but I figured gauging interest even with low ball offers would tell me which ones are my more popular domains.

Being constantly prompted top respond to these offers has caused me to put in the minimum $1000 offer today.



Another reason I did it is because Dan has an amazing tool (if you know about it) that shows you exactly how often people are hitting your domains. So now I have a much better tool and no longer need to track the low ball offers.

What is the tool?


Go to this address...

See this yellow views link

Select recently viewed

Now you can see the most recent domains that have been viewed but there is one more trick.....


Pin the TAB and let it sit static in your browser, then refresh the screen every couple of hours and you will see every domain that has been viewed.

I did an experiment on this and mentioned a couple of domains on forums and I instantly (takes about a minute) could see how many times the domain was hit after writing about it.

Nice feature on dan.com
 
thanks, didn't see that feature before.

when it says 'recent', do you know how much time that represents? Views in the last day, 2 days, week...?

It sorts the list by most recent visits. So the top domain in the list was most recent, etc, but you don’t exactly know how much time had lapsed.

If you keep the tab pinned then the time that has passed was since your last refresh.

So you can go in every hour and see which domain was viewed.
 
Oh I see, so the number of views to the right doesn't matter for this, it's just a list. So the top domain was visited the most recently, but you don't know if it was 1 hit, or 10 necessarily, if it has 70 total views on the right.

Yes the views are per month

I assume the views are a rolling month (last 30 days) as I never see the counters reset.

Exactly

Yes it is a rolling total, I have been eyeing this a long time.

I like to look every few hours as I am sitting at my desk, interesting when I see an obsucre domain come up that does not usually get views.

One that is coming up for me quite a few times this month is Ripplex.ca and its getting more attention in the past two weeks than over it's life lifetime.

Trying to figure that one out.

check .io

nevermind, its down now.

Looks like it shut down a year ago.
 
Could have to do with the Ripple (XRP) crypto. X is obviously a good way to abbreviate exchange. Plus, adding an X onto a keyword has been trendy, like SpaceX.

I have quite a few crypto/bit/bitcoin related .ca's, but have to say I don't think the crypto trend has pushed too far into .ca use yet.
 
I haven't don't it in a long time, but I would occasionally watch the apache log file on my server and watch the hits roll in. Always interesting. The craziest thing is seeing that a huge percentage of all traffic is hackers looking for ways to exploit you, as well as so many bots. So the Dan "recent views" are a similar thing, but I'm sure they're filtering out (to the best they can) all the bots and hacker traffic.

Anyone want to play a game? Look at your Dan stats and post the domain of your most recent visit.

Mine is: Ficus
 
I was just thinking that when I check my traffic on my own stats page, a lot of hits to domains seem to be bots. Wonder how good Dan does at filtering those out.


most recent Dan visit: tina .ca

You guys don't use Google Analytics (GA) with Dan to analyze your traffic?

GA really gives you a lot more info, including letting you know what's most certainly bot traffic or not. Most bot traffic seems to always come from the same cities in the US (like Ashburn, Virginia and Boardman, Oregon, for example).

I barely check out the views tab at Dan now that I use GA, although i just compared the most recent views between both GA and Dan's interface and it doesn't quite check out. I can only assume Dan is a little delayed because GA can show you visitors in real time and the exact time of day a person visited.

Edit: Oddly enough, I also see a recent visit on Dan's interface that doesn't show at all on my GA.
