Interesting analysis on selling premium domain names - Domain Name Wire: "Matt Mazur of Lean Domain Search has posted an analysis of his results showing premium domain names for sale next to available-to-register domain name results. It’s an interesting read. After several months showing domains from Sedo’s inventory he has sent hundreds of targeted buyers but hasn’t made a sale.

One of the challenges is that Lean Domain Search finds some pretty good unregistered domains, which makes it hard to push a premium domain . . . ."
