    Welcome to Behind The Keyword, I will be taking a look at the most popular keywords that sell, get listed and get developed. Whether it be on big marketplaces like Sedo and Afternic or specialty sites like BrandBucket.

    [​IMG]

    Today we are looking at the keyword - Cube

    Some Cube related statistics:
    • 286,000,000 results for the keyword in Google using "Cube"
    • 450,000 exact monthly searches according to Google Keyword Planner
    • 33,100 exact monthly searches for Cube Games according to Google Keyword Planner
    • "Cube" is the 674h most popular topic on the internet by domain count.(LeanDomainSearch)
    Sales

    The top sale for the keyword cube is a tie between TheCube.co.uk and TheCube.co, both purchased in May of 2006 for $40,919. TheCube.co.uk was sold again in 2011 for a big loss. The 2011 sale only brought in $22,000. The domain is now developed by the Birmingham Development Company Limited. TheCube.co redirects to Cunjo.com and that domain does not resolve.

    The next biggest sale is MicroCube.com for $40,000, this name was purchased in March of 2016.

    I wanted to take a look in this report at a name that is not one of the top 20 keywords but has had some decent sales. You may be able to find some names that don't go as high in auction as cloud or tech.Some Cube related domains have even sold for four figures in .biz and .info.

    Michael Krell sold a nice cube related name in May on BrandBucket. CourseCube.com was sold for $2,495 and Michael told me he backordered the name back in December of 2015.

    Usage:

    Brad Mugford owns one of my favorite cube names as it partners with another favorite, data. DataCube.com is an excellent brand name in my opinion and that's what Brad uses for his domain sales website.

    MCube.com is developed and owned by VMC Technologies.

    GameCube.com was a product from Nintendo that has been retired, the domain forwards to Nintendo.com.

    The top reported Cube sales of all time:

    funny!

    because of this article started just snooping around. found a couple. most had drops some had 3-4 drops. so leave those along

    then thought what could "Cube" we used for.

    Storage facilities
    and cubicles for offices.

    since Cubicles.com is long gone tried some hacks

    Qbicle.com Taken
    Cubikle.com Taken
    then tried
    Cubikal.com (strange but NOT TAKEN)
    but Cubikal is trademarked but neither Cubikal.com nor Cubikals.com are taken.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=cub...=AEjTV5bGCYjX-QHIoLyIAQ#imgrc=r2DFtMv6auDKzM:


    Strange! but TM sure is scary! runaway!!
