Cick Here to Launch - Term Suggestion Tool
It can be useful in finding word suggestions or comparing the popularity of similar words when trying to choose a domain name. For example: If you were creating
a website pertaining to open water kayaking, you would find that
"sea kayak" received 36,866 searches and "ocean kayak" received 8,880
searches. If you were trying to decide between getting OceanKayakStore.com
and SeaKayakStore.com then the latter may be the wiser choice.
If you were interested in other suggestions then by entering "kayak" you find the results for the top searches with that term.
"kayak equipment" received 14,892 and "kayak gear" 6,044 for example.
A smart domain name might be kayakequipment.com and/or seakayakequipment.com.
It can be beneficial to purchase multiple domain names related to your product or service.
Domain names with popular keywords will; help you get listed higher in search engines for those terms, be memorable, secure those names from your competitors, and may get you free type-in traffic (ie. someone decides to type-in kayakequipment.com to see what's there).
Note: It can be tempting to purchase domains that contain brand names. In the kayaking example, you would
find that the keywords "perception kayak" received a large volume of searches. Perception Kayaks
is a trademarked brand name and purchasing perception-kayaks.com would
subject you to a trademark dispute if the company felt you were infringing upon their trademark
rights. In such a case, you would most likely be forced to transfer a domain name to the company.
Any domains containing trademarks are registered at your own risk.
