    Question What would you do with mob.com?

    I'd appreciate an opinion or some general advice. One of the domains I own is MOB.com. It gets about 500 unique visitors a day and is completely non-monetised. I've started building a site to aggregate daily deals but also want to include some content around mobile gaming [as 50% of my users are on mobile devices]. I'm working on the basis that mobile gaming is a growth market and that it's probably one of the more lucrative ways to monetise a generic and growing audience. I know plenty about affiliate marketing but almost nothing about mobile gaming. Building and marketing a site is not a problem. I have plenty of resources and 15 years online marketing/web development experience. If anyone would care to recommend a good starting point or to tell me what you would do with a premium domain like mob.com, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I should probably have stated that I am not interested in selling it.

    Great domain! Mobile gaming is certainly massive at the moment, just read an article on the OMGPOP sale... Amazing and definitely a market I would build a presence in focusing on apps but also with major attention on social gaming which crosses boundaries in iGaming and is certain to grow over the next few years in a big way.....

    On the mobile gambling side some of these resources of ours may help

    Hi mob dot com. Please be careful when deciding what to do. That is a valuable domain. Lots of folks would love to have it and scam you for it.

    If you are not sure, do nothing for now.

    There are a ton of options. You could do a royalty fee in Hollywood. Or anything.

    Please seek professional advice.

    I AGREE with Mojo ,many options for this domain.3 character domains have always been valued high but this is a real 3 character word ,I bet domain only at least $25,000 .Of course if you listen to rumors many mobsters in online gaming so maybe one of them will want it

    I'm a bit MEH about the domain frankly ... Isn't the .mobi suffix specifically designed for mobile websites ?
    I'm not thinking immediately mob.com as a destination for me mobile phone or tablet use ...
    It's OK - it's short - but since when did letters become tough to type?

    Still I don't play in the buying and selling of domains and domain names ...
    So I'm clearly a novice in this area - and you should follow more experienced advice.

    I did like the suggestion of selling it to the mafia though!
