There was a flurry of late bidding over at Domain Lore where Oxfordshire.co.uk eventually attracted a sale price of £6,402 – well below the BIN of £28k.
The domain previously hosted a website with many thousands of pages cached in the Google index.
Many of the site’s incoming links come from local Oxfordshire websites
so it will be interesting to see how quickly the new owner can set up a replacement site that will preserve the link equity and good PR enjoyed by the domain.
Disclosure – I considered bidding for this domain but didn’t do so in the end, primarily because of the risk involved in losing PR and goodwill while building out a large replacement site.
But for a motivated buyer, able to act quickly, this looks a pretty good price to me.
