You are bidding on pc.cm, an exclusive two letter domain name. This domain is extremely rare, it's brandable and is excellent for url shorteners as you can't get any shorter than 4 characters including the extension unless you work for the government and have access to reserved domains.

There aren't many of these left in the world and even fewer will ever be sold. pc.cm can be an excellent investment as all you need to do is sit on it and sell it in a few years time or wait for the right offer to come along. A right company in PC niche will easily fork out a million for this puppy. The only reason why I'm selling is because I need the money this month.

Domain is registered with namecheap and an instant free push can be given.

Bidding starts at 20 BTC

Starts at 20 BTC? Did you see what the last 2 letter domain went for that was better?

In a report published in December 2009 by McAfee, "Mapping the Mal Web - The world's riskiest domain", .cm was reportedly the riskiest domain in the world, with 36.7% of the sites posing a security risk to PCs.[5] It is widely assumed that malicious domain programmers rely on inadvertent misspellings of well-trafficked websites ending in ".com" to lure unsuspecting users to their domains.

They are risky because people misspell .com and end up on a phishing website. The misspelling only makes them more valuable because you will see more traffic. If you build a reputable site your domain extension is not relevant.

I think 20 BTC is a great starting bid. If you disagree, don't bid. You are entitled to your opinion.

For references, pc.com is owned by intel.
It just redirects to their Tech tips portion of their site.
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/tech-tips-and-tricks/tech-chef-tidbits.html

How actively it's used as a short link, I'm not sure.

I'm not particular fond of domain selling for profit, but have to admit a 4 letter (total) domain for url shortening is a good thing if you can get it.
Is it worth that much? I don't know, I'm not sure how valuable the business of url shortening really is.

Maybe you should.

This site is worth about 15 BTC less than what you're asking.

Even at 5 BTC, I personally don't think it is worth it.

I also feel compelled to add that the moment you put a domain name up for sale, it loses 90% of its value.

Making this site worth maybe.... 0.5 BTC.
Big sales of domain names are when a holder gets offers from companies that desire their product.

sv.gd sounds better and sold for $110: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=171182.0

pc.cm looks strange to me. I don't expect it ever selling for more than $200.

I actually rejected a $5000 offer before for it. sv is just 2 random letters. PC is an actually keyword that generates 185,000,000 searches per month and has a CPC of $1.71

I recently found an issue that this domain will have also, it will be considered a ccTLD (for Cameroon) by search engines, and will be severely demoted when searched from non-Cameroon/Africa web users. Just like the .in you see in my sig (which is immediately recognizable to Indians as their country's domain), you should not expect worldwide traffic except if you are promoting it for utility use yourself, such as a domain shortener. Even typing "pc.cm" into a search engine might not show your site in the top results.

Actually,  Google is no longer using ccTLD or gTLDs as a ranking factor. Simply put ccTLD and gTLD will perform the same.

i own http://n-j.in and google associates it with india by default

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Yes ccTLD has geotargeting but does NOT play a role in ranking.

I provided a link to Google's information page so that you can read for yourself.
Click here now: https://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=62399

Quote from: from the page you didn't read
If your site has a generic top-level domain, such as .com or .org, and targets users in a particular geographic location, you can provide us with information that will help us determine how your site appears in our search results. This will also improve Google's search results for geographic queries. This data supplements our existing information, and setting a geographic target won't impact your appearance in search results unless a user limits the scope of the search to a certain country. See a full list of domains Google treats as generic.

Sites with country-coded top-level domains (such as .ie) are already associated with a geographic region, in this case Ireland. In this case, you won't be able to specify a geographic location.

In case you can't parse even the above:

1. The geographic setting helps determine how your site appears in search results, and
2. You cannot change your site's geographic setting for ccTLD's in webmaster tools unless they are on Google's treated-as-generic list.
