Just a flash update on Ultimate SEO LLC. In July we were awarded a grant for redesigning our site and using local contractors by the Metro Louisville Covid Relief Grant administered by Louisville Forward. Another 800+ businesses were awarded these grants that were meant to serve as a lifeline to local businesses. The grant though is yet to be useful now 6 months later as only a third of it was ever funded, despite the grant period requiring all funds to be spent by Dec. 30 2020. Ultimate SEO is unlikely the only organization left hanging by the Louisville Forward grant. The reporting requirements seem to be impossible for the city to actually review. I submitted an initial report on Sept 5 2020 and only the last week of December did they request about 60 additional pages to the already 30 page report. If we consider the average report being 90 pages and 800 businesses must report twice that amounts to 144,000 pages of documents.

Buying a domain that is already registered is a complex process, but that centers around a simple fact. A domain's value is equal to the amount someone is willing to pay for it. Its not what a seller is willing to sell it at, cause I can tell you I'll sell "ultimateseo.org" for a billion dollars but it isn't worth that until someone will pay that. Determining A Domains Value There are a lot of factors that come into play. Here are some: The length The TLD ( is it a .com or a .wtf ) The Traffic It Gets The SEO Value It Hold How many sites link to it? How many keywords does it rank for? The perceived authority of the domain...
