I currently have three domains listed on the godaddy auction page. I can't seem to see them on there unless i specifically search for them. There are no bids on them as of now, does godaddy just not show the domains that have no bids as a way to get you to buy the extra exposure? This is my first time using the GD auction page on recommendation from a domainer.

Hi

I think maybe those with no bids, are names that people don't want to bid on.

but that too, may depend on how long the auction will last.
as some bidders like to wait, before tipping their hand.

and yes, the option to buy ads is always an incentive for the sponsor to offer.

imo...

There's still quite a bit of time on the auction left, so that's very possible that its a factor. I just wonder if no one is bidding because they cant see them. When i organize the list from least amt of bid to most, it starts with domains that have two bids, so where are the ones have none or one.

I had the same problem recently and I even contacted their support about it - they say that it may take a while for the domain to appear in the auctions, while they process all the data. It's not uncommon at all, but if the problem persists after more than 24 hours, you should definitely talk to them to see what's going on.
