The new Brandable Domain Names section on Lean Domain Search achieved a small milestone this weekend when it passed 50 registered domain names.
At the time of this writing there have been 510 domain names released, 54 of which have been registered (10.5%).
One interesting result of releasing one domain name per hour is that the farther back you go, the more likely it is that a domain name will have been registered. This makes sense when you think about it: a domain name that has been listed on this page for a week will have been viewed by a lot more people than a domain name that was only listed an hour ago. You can see how this plays out on the brandable domain names list which has relatively few registered domain names at the top of the list (the ones most recently released), but a lot towards the bottom (the ones that have been listed for a while):
It's a small milestone for what is still a small part of Lean Domain Search, but one that validates the idea and encourages me to press forward with it.
Here's to the next 50 and beyond :)
