    Love it. Thanks for this series @equity78 - it is so very helpful. I actually really like lab names. I have TrekLabs on BB; I'm waiting for the right StarTrek Junkie or recovery guru to come along.

    This kind of exercise is very useful because some keywords are trendy in URLs, business-like and can shape strong brands. If you follow reported sales carefully you will notice that some niches/keywords result in repeat sales.
    Many years ago, I used to catch dropping names with popular prefixes like mini, easy, net etc. And also more specific keywords like host or other Internet-oriented stuff.
    Made some good sales.
    To me what is essential is branding.
    The bottom line is that keywords are of course important in domain names and you don't choose them at random.

    Do most of the companies with the word in their name use plural or singular?

    I.e. Labs or Lab?
