    In this new series 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]

    Tech seemed obvious to me as the first choice for this new series on keywords.

    Some Tech related statistics:
    • 1,640,000,000 results for the keyword in Google using "Tech"
    • 135,000 exact monthy searches according to Google Keyword Planner
    • 201,000 exact monthly searches for Tech News according to Google Keyword Planner
    • "tech" is the 4th most popular topic on the internet by domain count.(LeanDomainSearch)
    Sales:

    The top reported sale for the keyword tech is iDTech.com at $75,000. According to Namebio the name was sold in July of 2013. The seller was Frank Schilling's Name Administration, Inc. The domain was registered in 2003.

    Interesting fact about id tech, the .net was registered five years earlier than the .com in 1998, and dropped two times before that. The .org was registered two years before the .com.

    iD Tech looks to have been a rebrand for Internal Drive, the domain is developed, World’s #1 Summer Computer Camps for Kids & Teens.

    The number 2 sale involving the keyword tech was ComTech.com at $60,000 in 2011. The sale took place on Sedo. The seller was a German registrant who sold it to another German registrant. The site is developed an online store. The domain was registered in 1997, two months before the .org got registered.

    Mr. Schilling was back at it again with the third highest sale, NeTech.com. This domain sold for $45,000 back in 2012. This was a coincidental sale, not based on tech really. The domain was purchased by an existing French dating site, NetEchangisme.com. The domain was registered in 2004 with one previous drop.

    Tech has been a popular keyword for alt extensions as well:
    • Tech.pro $25,500
    • Tech.de $20,250
    • Tech.io $15,105
    Tech has been a popular keyword on BrandBucket. In the latest newsletter Michael Krell wrote that Tech was the most searched for term in June.

    Some BrandBucket sales include:
    • Techfully.com
    • Technish.com
    • TechRabbit.com
    • Techsilo.com
    • Techtrics.com
    A few months back Michael Krell sold a tech related name, TechBetter.com for $2,395. The buyer turned out to be Walmart.

    There's a website up now on the domain, and it looks like a blog that was created to let people know about Walmart's technology.

    From the site:

    About Tech Better

    Tech Better is an inside look at Walmart Technology – who we are, what we’re building and what we’re watching. We’ll give you an inside look at our tech teams, as well as existing and new technology that power seamless shopping experiences.

    Usage

    There are many developed popular websites using the keyword Tech. TechCrunch.com is certainly one of the most popular and comes up as the top search on Google.

    TheTech.org is a pretty cool site if you are interested in innovation.

    TechTimes.com covers a wide array of tech related news.

    TechMeme.com is an aggregator of tech news.

    Great summary, thanks.

    About a year ago I registered technik.top (german for technic) and technologie.top (german for technology) - I am sure those domains will complement the list some day.

    I have a few 'tech' domains, but in this area it's not necessary to include 'tech' keyword to be a great name, I think that just the 'geeks' who live and eat 'tech' could say exactly which one is good or not. These are a few of my lately acquired 'tech': techcod, techbagel, techtrout, techtonus, techadaptor, techbouquet, heytechnology and a 3 word domain TechAndTechnology.

    love the keyword... Tech.
    its kickass.

    as related ones... highTech .. sometimes abbreviated also as hiTech ... I like also!

    defininition: High technology, often abbreviated to high tech (adjective forms high-technology, high-tech or hi-tech) is technology that is at the cutting edge: the most advanced technology available. As of the onset of the 21st century, products considered high tech are often those that incorporate advanced computer electronics.

    good stuff. tnx for ideas.
