These Afternic keywords might be helpful for domain investors


These words showed up greater than others in domains that recently sold at Afternic.

Last week, Afternic tweeted a graphic showing the highest keywords in domains sold on its platform in February. The keywords so as are:

  1. the
  2. my
  3. for
  4. home
  5. i
  6. your
  7. of
  8. best
  9. latest
  10. in
  11. ai
  12. get
  13. law
  14. and
  15. services
  16. tech
  17. real
  18. group
  19. life

This list may very well be very helpful to domain investors. Most of the words in listed below are “throwaway” words that you simply won’t wish to goal in domains (e.g. ‘and’ and ‘of’), but others are useful. For instance, .ai jumped high on the list. (I sold three domains with ‘ai’ in them at Afternic in February.)

I feel this data is more useful than Sedo’s search data because these are actual purchases quite than searches. One other keyword resource is Squadhelp, which provides data including sell-through rates for keywords to members.

Kudos to Afternic for sharing this information.
