LinkedIn IPO Domain Gets Its Day in the Spotlight

May 19, 2011Domaining, Domainnamewire, linkedin ipo, UncategorizedComments Off on LinkedIn IPO Domain Gets Its Day in the Spotlight

LinkedIn stock pops on open and related domain is surely getting a lot of traffic.

The number one trending search on Google right now? “LinkedIn IPO”.

And it’s no wonder, with the LNKD stock price doubling on its first day. The sign of a new tech bubble? Pent up demand for tech IPOs? I don’t know, but I’m not buying it.

Curious about this hot search term, I noticed that is registered. It’s currently a parked page that seems to be forwarding to an affiliate site. (Don’t go there. It’s one of those sites that gets you trapped and takes several clicks to close out of.) The domain name was registered back in 2009. It’s also listed for sale on Sedo for 500 EUR.

Now I know that investors are more sophisticated that average web users, but how much do you want to bet is getting a ton of traffic today?
