  • Need a jobs related domain? Click here
    By on May 10, 2016 | No Comments  Comments

    QUICK TIP: Sometimes the domain you want for your new job board is taken. In that case it may be better to see if its for sale on sites like SEDO.

    SEDO is a domain marketplace that has over 69k job related domains for sale right now. Most are available for a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. I’ve bought a few domains here over the years so its worth a look if you are looking for a short domain with your keyword of choice.


  • I was wondering if you could offer some advice?
    By on September 21, 2015 | No Comments  Comments

    Dear Chris, I own the following domains:

    conveyncingjobs.com has a website. The rest do not.

    In most Commonwealth countries, a conveyancer is a specialist lawyer who specialises in the legal aspects of buying and selling real property, or conveyancing. I am not sure how best to monetize them all.

    Is it something I could partner with someone with? I know your time is valuable but I would appreciate a any opinions or thoughts.


    Well Grant, if I owned these domains, here’s what I would do. First I would choose Indeed.com to backfill each site. Indeed has enough jobs in each of those countries to pre-populate them with jobs right away. Then I’d build the job sites to power them. You have 3 options here;

    1) use JobBoard.io and launch right away since they make it easy to get out of the box quickly with a job board. You can literally launch your site in one day.

    2) use an off the shelf WordPress job board solution. Keep in mind that these are a bit more techie to configure and launch than something like Jobboard.io.

    3) hire a freelance developer to build  a custom job board solution (using the Indeed API) that you can leverage and use on ALL the domains. Create a “network” of Conveyancer sites for those countries and start to grow your brand & niche.

    You’ll monetize mainly by Indeed affiliate earnings, adsense and job postings. I’d use the Indeed affiliate money to buy as many ads as possible on facebook and google to drive more traffic to the sites. By having multiple sites around the same niche for several countries you can maximize your affiliate earnings from Indeed.

    Launch them all at once. Start to get backlinks by blogging, guestblogging and leveraging social media. Use your first 3-6 months to target job seekers and start to build your candidate base before you start to actively court employers.

    Your “niche” is very narrow. I say this because it will affect your earning potential. So think of this as a second income for the forseeable future.

    After 1 year you’ll probably generate between $250 to $1,000 per month depending on how much you hustle with your SEO strategy and how many hours per week you can work on them.

    Good luck!

  • Got an old domain? put a job board on it
    By on July 20, 2015 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Back in 2007 I launched a bunch of regional web directories such as Long Island Web Search with the idea of selling backlinks to local businesses. I launched several sites and pulled in some sales but the idea never really took off and all the Google SEO changes pretty much killed off the traffic. I then abandoned them but never took the sites offline. They still brought in some minor adsense earnings.

    This year I decided to turn them into job boards for the regions they serve. I just relaunched four of them for Connecticut jobs, Western Mass jobs, Vermont jobs and New Hampshire jobs. I put them all on the SimplyHired partner platform which is totally free. Zero hosting costs. And it only took a few hours to get them all up and running.


    I wanted to max out my SH account with 5 sites insead of just one. My other site on SH is UAV Job Bank which is bringing in about $100 a month. The rep at SimplyHired says their platform should be mobile friendly by end of summer so I’m hopeful some of the SEO advantages of their platform will return once that happens.

    By promoting these new sites on places like facebook groups, friends and other social media (for free) the new local sites shoulds bring in $5-$10 a day for very little effort. Thats a car payment! The domains are already aged in google’s eyes so I expect them to be slightly better at SEO anyway.

    If you have any old websites just languishing online consider swapping them out with a free job board like this. They cost nothing to run/manage so whatever you make in clicks or job posts is gravy.

  • Premium domain for sale: MobileJobs.com
    By on March 23, 2015 | No Comments  Comments

    The domain name www.mobilejobs.com has been put up for sale by one of my readers. The domain name was registered in September 1999, only 12 months after Google was officially launched!

    mobilejobsWith the dramatic growth in mobile over the last few years, and the clear desire for job seekers to search and apply for jobs using mobile devices, the www.mobilejobs.com domain name has great potential for both new or existing job board owners.

    Alternatively it can be just as attractive as a website address for companies looking to develop any new mobile job related products or services.

    If you are interested contact me and I’ll put you in touch with the owner.

  • Monster gets the dot Monster domain extension
    By on December 14, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    I’m not sure why they need this but job search company Monster has beat out the Monster cable company for exclusive access to the .Monster domain extension.


    I guess it could useful for branding content like articles/ job content but its a curious move by the new Monster after rebranding themselves and launching new products. According to the press release;

    The proposed gTLD will be a restricted, exclusively-controlled gTLD where only Applicant, affiliated entities and authorized business partners will be permitted to register second-level domains for Applicant business purposes only for a term of one to ten years.

  • Sell your domains on Freemarket
    By on September 4, 2014 | No Comments  Comments

    The folks behind Freelancer.com have launched a competitor to Flippa and Godaddy auctions. Its called Freemarket.com. The best part is that its free and only charges 5% if a successful deal is made. Might be a better alternative to paying those pesky fees from the other sites I mentioned. So if you have some extra domains or used sites you want to sell check it out.

    Freemarket will let people post websites or domains for sale, either at auction basis or with a fixed-price eBay-style ‘But-It-Now’ option. A search on the keyword ‘job’ shows 23 sites related to job boards for sale.


  • Get ready for .career domains
    By on October 28, 2013 | No Comments  Comments

    Dot career is coming to a website near you in 2014. The same company (Employ Media) that runs .jobs will be selling them. In addition to job board uses they say it will be good for business, staffing firms, even personal use;

    Businesses and staffing agencies around the world will find .CAREER a natural extension for outward communications and marketing of their products and services, such as www.salary.career and www.NewYorkjobs.career. Individuals will be able to register their own name in .CAREER such as www.bobsmith.career for self-promotion to recruiters.

    Read more about it on TLNT. I may pick up a domain or two, particularly the short ones.
