I spend a lot of time looking for and buying great domain names. We wanted to do a blog about poker so I started thinking of names and I thought, hmmm “PokerPlayer” would be great, but there was no way to get that domain. So, I checked to see if pplayer.com was available and it was so I grabbed it. I thought, this is a great domain name I’m so smart!
Half the people who heard the name, including the readers of the site and the folks at the poker tournaments that we cover were like “Is that some porn fetish site??!”
Ouch. I’m an idiot.
So, we are rebranding pplayer.com as http://www.CardSquad.com at some point today. Sorry for making the team over there suffer. I’ll try harder next time guys! 🙂
