I need to know ASAP.
When I search in "Google's Keyword Tool" for a keyword like Weight Loss Tips
Should I choose by Broad or "Phrase" results in the "Match Types" section on the left side of the page?

I see some keywords that are broad matches with over 10,000 searches a month, but when I use the "Phrase" option, then I will get results that are under 1,000 searches per month for the same keyword.

I am looking for keywords that are good for Domain Names.



Thank you!

    Broad match searches are the default setting in the keyword tool.
    This number is usually pretty high for obvious reasons.

    IMHO, the Broad Match may not be a very good option to choose if your looking
    for a specific niche domain name.

    The Phrase Match is a little bit better becuz it will return the number of searches that include ALL the words in your search, but they may vary a little.

    If your looking for keywords that are good for a domain name
    then I would suggest both the Phrase Match and the Exact Match.

    The Exact match is by far the most useful becuz the tool will return
    searches for your exact keyword (example: "my keyword")

    Hope this helps.

      What you want for your domain name is a longtail keyword that has
      low competition, but high search numbers.

      There are various methods used together to find your perfect longtail keyphrase with decent searches numbers... and low competition.

    I always use exact match cause I am always looking for ways to rank as quickly and easily as possible. Broad match if often too competitive for me. I usually just look for exact matches of 1000 or more. Not sure if that is ideal though.

    Tallon,

    I'd always go for exact matches and anything from 5000 upwards is well worth going for.

    If you are in the weight loss niche than you'll fond it quite difficult to get your desired domain name has there are so many weight loss sites out there and also it's one of the biggest niches on the net today.

    One last thing if you are selling something specific then traffic of 1000 upwards can still bring you some good income. By this i mean if you are selling say **** berry tablets then you would get a better response for the keyword buy **** berry tablets rather than **** berry tablets etc....

    I hope this makes sense to you.

      Hi Tallon,

      When I'm searching for keywords that are good for domain names, there's two things I look for:

      1. A keyword that gets a lot of views per month. This is where the Google Keyword Tool comes in. Use broad match to find out exactly how many searches the keywords are getting. I'd like to see at least 3,000 searches per month.

      2. The next step is to see how many competiting sites there are for that keyword phrase. To do this, go to Google.com and type in the keyword phrase with quotation marks around it (i.e. phrase match). The reason for this is to filter out all the sites that happen to have those keywords on it, but not necessarily targeting our keyword phrase. If the keyword phrase has less than 20,000 competiting sites then it's good to go

      In other words, going back to your original question, I would use just the Google Keyword Tool to determine if a keyword phrase would be a good one to register a domain for.

    I agree with everyone that has posted already. Phrase or exact are the way to go for domain name research. Once you have that you can use broad to try and find other keywords within that niche as this is how the majority of people use Google.
