SE POPULARITY 


We believe that if you already own a DOMAIN NAME or are thinking about buying one from someone else, ALEXA is a good place to start doing some research. You can also check out how whoisBID.com is doing right now by simply typing in our url in the search box.


 As this page is being written we still don't appear in Alexa because this site is not popular enough yet. Over time that should change as ALEXA is able detect from its network relative website activity. You can get a subjective idea (according to ALEXA) of the kind of traffic your site is receiving. There is an option on alexa to RATE a WEBSITE with stars. Believe it or not, some people find this useful and there are individuals who are offering services to highly rate your domain/website with 5 stars for a few bucks. We did actually have a framed link to make it easy for people to search ALEXA but they did not seem to like it and so you will have go to ALEXA by typing their name into the URL bar and putting a DOT COM at the end.


                      DOMAIN NAME RESEARCH & APPRAISAL

 WHOIS BID has used Alexa to do research on old domains that are being offered in domain auctions. We have never paid anyone for a domain name appraisal because we believe it is more fun to do this yourself . If you are simply buying a domain name for your ego or to protect your company's name, trademark or intellectual property that is worth millions or billions of dollars to you, then the recommendations on this page will be invalid and it is part of a whole new discussion. The fact is , that most people coming to this page don't own these  extremely high valued domain names. It has been common on the internet for people to use a broker to sell & buy domain names over a certain value. This is not necessarily just because people aren't able to sell their domain names but probably because the broker is able to offer some sort of protection e.g they act as a middle man between buyer and seller. It is a horrible thing to send someone money for a domain name they promised to sell you only to find that they ran away with the money and you ended up with nothing. This is one of the reasons that domain name brokers will always be around no matter what! Who are the good domain name brokers? Well, we don't want to answer that question now. We think that trust is something that is gained over time. Check out the brokerage services yourself and see what kind of service is offered to buyer and seller. What we can say is that there are still plenty of WORTHLESS DOMAIN NAMES being offered for high amounts of money in the hope that some sucker will buy them. This is really a part of the domain name selling business we believe should be more carefully monitored. 



               GETTING STARTED

                            WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT ALEXA?


 ALEXA give an estimated "Traffic Rank" reports and "Sites Linking in"  There is also a free graph to show historical ranking trends but it will only show websites that get over several thousand unique visits per day so if you are looking at a domain or a website that is not highly visible you won't see it on their graph. 


Have some fun with Alexa by typing in things like Google.com and Facebook.com or websites that you idolize . Today I was looking for example at Malaysia and discovered that the number #1 website in that country is- (SEE FOR YOURSELF ) which is no surprise.

 


                           ALEXA REPORTING SITES LINKING IN


WHOIS BID originally had a framed link to Alexa.com but it seems that they don't like it and gave a HIGH SECURITY WARNING , so it has been removed. Why ALEXA don't want this is probably because people have found a way to abuse it.
