My Name Is My Domain List

Time for another Evil Blog Promotion Idea. This one comes from my friend Gary Lee. Gary was inspired by the Tech List and came up with a “My Name Is My Domain” list. To be included in the list, your name and your domain name must be the same. Having your name as the domain is one of the requirement for Dot Com Mogul status.

Like the Tech List, you reproduce the original list and then add up to three other blogs with domain names that are the same as the owners. Then let those added blogs know and tell them to do the same thing. Eventually, the list will spread all over the Internet and drive Technorati crazy. let’s see how many people we can get banned!

***Start Copying Here***

1) Write a short introduction paragraph about what how you found the list and include a link to the blog that referred you to the list.

2) COPY the ENTIRE List below and add it to your blog. To avoid duplicate content and increase the amount of keywords your site can accessible for, go ahead and change the titles of the blog. Just don’t change the links of the blog.

3) Take “My Adds” and move them into the “My Originals” list.

4) Add 3 Brand New Narcissistic Bloggers that you know of

My Adds:

Bob Buskirk
Jon Waraas
David Lithman

The Originals:

Gary Lee
Ed Lau
John Chow dot Com
Nate Whitehill
Stephen Fung
Michael Kwan
Jeff Kee
Stuart Hannig
Hannes Johnson
Nomar
Nathan Drach
Saman Sadeghi

***Stop Copying Here***

The original list had Kumiko Suzuki in it but I removed her. While Kumiko has her name in the URL, the domain belongs to Blogger. Sorry Kumiko. Get KumikoSuzuki.com and then you can join the fun. 😈

  1. Ed Lau says:

    Man, we’re so getting banned from Technorati…

    1. Stephen says:

      Your blog doesn’t qualify! You’re an EdEdition.com, not an EdLau.com or an EdwinLau.com 😆

      1. Gdog says:

        I thought Ed’s last name was “[ED]ition”? :mrgreen:

      2. broc says:

        haha
        one can only hope to get enough backlinks to get banned from technorati
        then we can just be evil and pretend like we dont know what happened and technorati will give us our rankings back
        right john?
        lol

        1. Leftblank says:

          I doubt they’ll be that ignorant :roll:, let’s hope they will give tons of more backlinks, I want to enter the top 20k :p

  2. Gary Lee says:

    i just wanted to see what other narcissistic bloggers there were in the blosophere . . really!

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      Ha, that’d be pretty neat. Too bad Kwan.com is already taken 😕

    2. John Chow says:

      I would love to buy chow.com but it’s own by CNet and they refuse to sell.

      1. Jez says:

        I could have got my name (uk domain) a few years back and never bothered, I really regret it now.

    3. too bad wong.com is taken too. The domain hoggers sure know the worthiness of surnames, and they just won’t give them up!

  3. danielle says:

    again with the ego blogs. dang it, shoulda had mine up sooner.

  4. Erik says:

    Pretty soon as this spreads around the web there are going to be quite a few duplicates.

    1. Jez says:

      People have been registering their names and hosting sites under them for around 15 years, its an old idea ….

    2. It is nothing new really. Just that the combination of your first name and last have to be pretty unique to grab yours.

  5. Tyler Ingram says:

    Oh I’m going to have to add my name to that list huh?

  6. Michael Kwan says:

    Uh oh, it seems I’ve been banned by Technorati. My blog doesn’t show up in the search results, but the Technorati page still exists.

    1. Gary Lee says:

      I see you on technorati . . it seems your btr is claimed, but www isn’t . .

  7. Erik says:

    Already?! wow lol.

    1. jez says:

      Yup, the WWW was launched in 1990, you didnt miss much it was rubbish for the first few years… didnt stop people registering domains, wish I had my surname now…

  8. Jon says:

    Don’t forget about me!
    http://www.jonlee.ca

    1. Stephen says:

      Do .ca’s count? 😈

  9. Rehuel says:

    Imagine what my url would look like. My name is Rehuel Lobato de Mesquita -> rehuellobatodemesquita.com. Any

  10. Rehuel says:

    benefits to having your name as domain name?

    (Clicked before I was done)

    1. It is akin to holding a piece of virtual property in your hands. You may not know it, but there may be others who have the same name as you do. So.. Why not grab it fast?

      1. Gary Lee says:

        yes . . i totally agree . . the person who has my name as their domain is currently a evangelist in the hispanic community . . .

        1. And the person who has my real name in life is a Senior Manager (Product Marketing) over at Yahoo! Now, think of that..

      2. jez says:

        Fast, fast would have been many years ago, now is too late, for surnames at least, unless you have a really wierd name, or stick numbers on the end.

        I registered the surname of a friend a couple of years ago and gave it to him. He never used it and its now up for grabs again, gutted I have a more common surname, I would love to have my surname for my mail address.

  11. Gregg says:

    I guess I qualify to be on that list!! 😀

  12. I’d qualify for that list too. My links will be different, though 😉 They’ll be a bit more cryptic.

  13. Rehuel says:

    Now I qualify too 😀 just need to install a blog at rehuellobatodemesquita.com

  14. HAHA nice one. I wanted to get mitchellharper.com, mitchharper.com or even mytch.com – all of which are taken until at least 2010. Damn those domain hoarders!!! 😡

    1. Rehuel says:

      Look at my nickname in my blog and you could do nice things if the pronunciation only could do.

    2. Well, it is irritating if they aren’t making use of the name at all isn’t it? If they are hoarding, is it the name of someone famous?

      1. jez says:

        A lot of “name” domains are used for E-mail only, they are using them, just not hosting sites with them.

  15. Stuart says:

    Hey John, thank you for the mention, but you spalled my name and site wrong.

    my name is StuartHannig not StuartHanning, If you could fix that I would really appreciate it!

    1. John Chow says:

      I just copied and pasted the list from Mr. Gary Lee, so blame him. :mrgreen:

    2. Gary Lee says:

      Hi Stuart . . . sorry about that . . michael kwan got me on that too . . i’m going to change you on my list right now too

  16. Gareth says:

    I qualify for that list, but I don’t know 3 more people with their own domains. So I’ll pass, unless someone wants to use me, and force me to go hunting!

    1. John Chow says:

      You don’t have to list three. Just list up to three. You can just list yourself. 🙂

  17. Kyle says:

    My domain is the same as my online identity, does that count for anything? Not even half a mention?

    haha 😉

  18. Kumiko says:

    Actually, the original Gary Lee list was ‘My Name Is *IN* My Domain’ – so I do qualify under his list. But if you want to change the list, that’s cool. A free link from JC is worth more to me! 😀

    Kumiko
    xo 😛

  19. Nomar says:

    Great Great , I will post this one to

  20. Kumiko says:

    Haha! This is hilarious! It seems some people picked up the list before JC got to it and now their commentators are debating on whether I should be included or not! Haha!!! You’ve done an evil thing John!!! But i do love a little controversy surrounding me! 😈

    Kumiko

  21. Hey John… I started a similar thing a few days ago now called

    ‘The AGLOCO List’ – on my blog a few posts down by now..
    but you have to have less than 50 directreferrals to take part so Sorry!

    Matt

    1. That’s a pretty clever idea.

  22. Nathan Drach says:

    Was wondering where all the backlinks and traffic came from the last few days. Thanks for the support.

  23. Pat Doyle says:

    Are hyphens allowed? I own pat-doyle.com (patdoyle.com was taken). I have owned it for a while already. (There is nothing there right now, but I could post the list, if I am allowed in this group.)

    1. That’s gotta count.

  24. Jimi says:

    hehe…you crazy bastards. Where’s all the links to my site since you he was “inspired” by the Tech List?

    Keep it real people :lol:.

  25. snuz says:

    Credit due here men…

  26. Zieak says:

    …what about a well established nickname? (Mine even shows up on my credit reports.)

  27. Pingback: Mr. Gary Lee
  28. so where is this now? any spottings so far?

  29. Did this whole – my name is my domain thing ever take off? Seems kind of dead.

    1. Nathan Drach says:

      Really depends on how many pick it up from your site. I know it has brought me to your site…

  30. Hey John,

    I have added you to my My Name is My Domain List please add me to yours.

    Thanks,
    Calvin
