Ya Right Go Daddy


Go Daddy says their decision to stop offering .cn domains in China was not a PR stunt.  Huh, wow.  Weird they announced it ONE DAY after Google and China butt heads in a global headline getting duke out.

I am a Go Daddy loyalist, but this is too easy a story to not take hostage.  The competition is likely heavy for Go Daddy in China and margins are probably smaller.  And they can easily reverse this decision next week when the Google storm settles.

Being the PR cherry pickers they are, it just seems too ripe an opportunity to not just milk the hype.

However I encourage any and every company to jump into a big story trend if you can. It works wonders when pulled off right!
