Originally posted by safesys can't see any value either. maybe you were offered $500 by someone who doesn't understand how overture stats work re singular/plural. the domainnameauction thing was just a staring bid snoop, it didn't get any takers - which makes the turning down of $500 even more head scratching.
At first I agreed with you Safesys thinking that must be the case, as confusion does happen (especially with newbies) due to Suggestion Tool combining plural with non-plural.
I wanted to see the number of returns so entered purchasings with the s on end and there were surprisingly no returns! I am not sure if this means they are now stopping the combining of words, or if it was an anomaly, or another reason for it.
It's also possible the plural being combined with the singular is not applicable on made-up words like this but only regarding real words. Any thoughts on this from others?
The real dictionary word Purchasing had 9,000 returns, with zero for Purchasings, a non-dictionary made-up word.
Here is the easy-to-remember website with the Overture Suggestion Tool Link for more research on this - www.SuggestionTool.com
P.S. Agree 100%, he should have taken $500 without hesitation, more than the made-up name is really worth.
