    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 ever popular - Shop

    Some Shop related statistics:
    • 5,430,000,000 results for the keyword in Google using "Shop"
    • 550,0000 exact monthy searches according to Google Keyword Planner
    • 74,000 exact monthly searches for Shop Online according to Google Keyword Planner
    • "Shop" is the 6th most popular topic on the internet by domain count.(LeanDomainSearch)
    Sales

    The top sale is the actual keyword itself. Shop.com sold for $3.5 million in November of 2003. Complex.com wrote: Looking to create an online destination where people could easily browse through a number of catalogs, Lee Lorenzen founded a site called Catalog City. From there the vision grew to include products from web-only shops, popular department stores, and speciality stores. Backed by a great purchasing technology called OneCart, all CatalogCity was missing was a new name: It came in the form of Shop.com which was picked up for a little over $3 million.

    The number two sale is Shop.cn, the domain sold for $160,320 in February of 2014. The sale was part of the eName/.CN Registry Auction. Currently the site has a 501 not implemented message showing.

    ProShop.com was the number three sale at an even $100,000. The domain sold back in 2005 and was a private sale. The domain registered in 1999 is owned by industry powerhouse Anything.com. The domain is currently parked.

    Shop has also done well in the alt extensions:
    • proshop.de 25,025 USD
    • shop.be 23,402 USD
    • sexshop.org 22,050 USD
    • shop.co 22,000 USD
    • videoshop.tv 18,760 USD
    Shop is also a popular search term on BrandBucket.

    Some BrandBucket sales include:
    • Shopeer.com
    • Shopkin.com
    • Shopodo.com
    • Shopomo.com
    • Shoponix.com
    Usage:

    NFLshop.com is a very popular website for fans of American Football. The website is advertised heavily during the football season.

    Shop.com is a developed online shopping destination.

    The Body Shop is a very popular brand that was launched in the U.K. with several geo centric websites.

    New gTLD

    The .shop extension is launching in September, On 28 January 2016, GMO Registry won rights to own the .shop gTLD for $41.5 million in an ICANN auction, outbidding all other applicants. At the time of the auction, this was the most expensive reported auction in the history of the New gTLD Program.[1]

    "ShopOnline.com" a no brainer. Emarketer just forecast 4 trillion doing it by 2020

    Shoppen is Dutch (and maybe German) for Shopping.
