I got a call today, guy selling traffic

This guy calls wanting me to buy his traffic.

His site

http://www.irrigationandsprinklerrep...asftworth.net/

I see some phrases from my older sites.

I might offer 30 for the domain. Not interested. Opinion?

My opinion? I hope you don't lowball like that in your day to day operations. That's only 73¢ per letter of the domain name. Going rate is $2.57, sometimes as high as $4.6m...

I am basically not interested in the site.

I am under the impression that less letters = more value.

You're correct, Duekster. I was being sarcastic. I can't remember the last time I saw that long of a keyword-stuffed domain name.

"Need more info? Just hit our site. Got a pen? It's www.[41letters].com."

It does not seem to be key work rich and I do not seem to recall seeing this site while optimizing and checking my stuff.

I sent you a pm of my assumption on this one.

It is keyword rich in that, in a variety of forms, there are 51 instances of "sprinkler" on the home page, so there's that. lol
