A few years ago, before we bought the domain franksandbeansonline.com, Larry and I looked into buying the more obvious name of franksandbeans.com. It probably doesn’t take too much thought to figure out why we didn’t buy that particular name: it was expensive. REALLY expensive. Like $18,000 a year expensive. And so franksandbeansonline.com was brought into existence, and franksandbeans.com sat unused for years and years.
But then someone bought it and turned it into a site with pictures of girls on it. That’s fine, of course, but I have to at least say that it’s a strange use of the domain. Is it a desirable domain name? Do people wander over there and click on the ads? I have no idea.
Interestingly enough, franksandbeans.com isn’t even porn. It’s good looking girls, often in skimpy outfits, but that’s about it. Porn, I could get. Heck, that goes without saying (…ladies). I suppose we’ll see if this experiment lasts, as that 18 grand (if that’s indeed what the name went for) is real money. But hey, maybe we’ll have some cross promotions in our future. Reach out, franksandbeans.com, and send us a line. Heck, look at all of this free promotion that you’re already getting!
