    domain.com / yourdomain.com - Lucky B@s#^r*s

    I wonder how many thousands of backlinks will sites like domain.com, yourdomain.com, xyz.com, etc.. be receiving.
    Lol, i just checked
    Code:
    http://domain.com
    which has 60k+ backlinks and a PR7. Wonder how many may be free co-incidental ones.

    Code:
    http://yourdomain.com
    loads to a blank page, has 5k backlinks and PR7.

    So also
    Code:
    http://example.com
    seems to be reserved and unavailable for registration, they have a PR8 and 202k backlinks.

    What do you guys say?

    They aren't lucky bastards, Porn.Com is a lucky bastard. Alright these domains get tons of free backlinks and a high pagerank. But most of these domains aren't using it as an advantage. If I had the domain, domain.com I would develop it as a domaining blog. As it's a loss if you wouldn't But some just don't do anything with their awesome domains

    I understand your point, but please understand my point of view too

    I understand your point too. But domain.com is making use of this advantage, unsure about the others though

    I would build a time machine and go back to when domain registration was first available and register every domain I can think of before these guys!

    Well example.com, example.net, and example.org are being used as nothing more than examples.

    Example.com is reserved by RFC 2606 to be used just for that. (The Request for Comments (abrv. RFC) dates back 40 years ago with the invention of the internet) Example.com is an official example domain to be used for documentation. But ( "yourdomain.com" isn't.)
    If people followed the recommended guidelines, "yourdomain.com" wouldn't have any backlinks. Your supposed to use example.com, example.net, or example.org in documentation where your using urls.

    Yup, example.com is reserved so no one could register it. I think it's the same with any domain extension. I'm surprised domain.com wasn't reserved too, but that company is definitely using it to their advantage, which is to sell domains.

    How about yourcompany.com ? I think it will get some traffic too.
