I often get people saying to me "theres no good domain names left".
I'm talking about exact match domains here just to be clear.
So let's look at how I always find more great domain names than I can even afford to buy.
First go to Google Keyword Tool.
Type in a "seed" keyword for your niche. If you don't have a niche yet just go to clickbank or amazon and pick a category or sub category, be a bit broad... you can always narrow down later.
For example... I'm going to pick the sub category..... Eating Disorders (from the main category - Self Help)
This is my seed keyword. I go into Google Keyword Tool and type that in, and put the match on EXACT.
Now you'll see a list of keywords, pretty normal. I know for a fact most of these big terms like 'eating disorders' itself will be taken in .com or .net ... and I also know it will be way too competitive for a affiliate mini site.
So lets narrow it down. I only want local searches over 1000 exact match a month.
SO I put it in the filter options.
Next i sort the keywords so they are least searches coming up first. I click the local monthly searches column and then click again to achieve this. The first time you click it sorts from highest to lowest, we want lowest to highest.
So then I get this.
Now I open up my favourite domain checker, AJAX WHO IS
Ajax Whois 2.0 - fast domain name search and whois
And I look for a keyword domain from the ideas google is giving me. I miss out crappy ones that I know aren't buyer or desperate keywords.
Here's what I got. These are all terms with over 1000 exact match searches/month
That is just the first page, there are loads more... and you'll get completely different results with different seed keywords. Trying Bulimia as a seed keyword will bring many more. It's a case of playing and toying with GKWT
, but here is a solid emthod to finding hidden gem exact match domains.
Note that these domains will probably be a doddle to get ranked also, but comptetitive research is best saved for another post...
