I had to sneak off for a few moments to make a quick post. Hopefully, my wife doesn’t notice I’m gone – crap she just caught me. Yes, today is the favorite holiday of married men across the nation – St. Valentines Day. And today I am looking for Valentines Day domain names – maybe I could give one as a gift to my little Valetine. She would love that!:P
Valentines Day Domain Names
Let’s take a look at some of the best .com Valentines Day domains out there and who owns them. My list of the most popular Valentines Day domain names include:
- Valentine.com – Owned by Blucora, Inc. (formerly InfoSpace) since 1999 – Redirected to Excite.com Valentine search query
- Valentines.com – Private owner since 1995 – Website does not resolve

My Takeaways About .COM Valentines Day Domain Names
Not one of the Valentines Day domain names above were developed. A quick Google search of Valentines Day brings up the Wikipedia, History Channel, Walmart, Target, NY Times and USA Today pages as the first few results. Surprisingly, Canadian soapmaker LUSH made the first page. Florists FTD and TeleFlora made the second page – as did Hallmark and 123 Greetings. Also, there were no Google ads at the top of the SERPs.
I figured one of the Valentines Day EMDs on the list would have been developed, but I was wrong. If I owned one of them – any of them, actually – I would build out a ten page mini-site with posts of original content about various long tail search terms like Valentines Day chocolates, Valentines Day candy, Valentines Day gifts, etc. Optimize a few pictures and monetize it with Adsense.
On the other hand, would it really be worth my time for something that comes around once a year. Maybe not.
