Best of 2010: Domaining Articles and Tutorials

By on December 29, 2010

It may come as a surprise to you that DotSauce Magazine published just 90 articles in 2010. That averages out to a healthy 7.5 per month or ~2 per week and yet the website continues to be one of the most visited publications in the domain space alongside DNJournal and Domain Name Wire.

Gone Social

I have taken advantage of a growing network of domain investors, web developers and entrepreneurs through popular social networking outlets. Thank you so much to all the dedicated fans and followers who keep updated and share your favorite articles.

Each post on DotSauce Magazine has a purpose and the goal is to impart knowledge to the best of my ability or share valuable resources and news. I used to blog nearly everyday, but since making the switch to this style of publication I have not looked back.

Search Dominance

Google has looked favorably on my search engine optimization efforts and the content that comes with a well-rounded article featuring external resources, images and keyword savvy phrasing.

Hundreds of daily unique visitors stumble upon DotSauce Magazine looking for insight into the mysterious world of domain names, web development, marketing and online business. I’ve got love for my regular readers, but these are the people I want to reach the most. Many industry veterans like Rick Schwartz, Ron Jackson, Frank Schilling and Rob Sequin have preached over the years that we will not get anywhere without educating the public. It is something I am just as passionate about as buying and selling domain names.
