    If an EMD has loads of broad searches with high CPC as $3.6 and exact searches are zero but loads of ads on google, would it be a good domain?

    I have never bothered looking at cpc, search volume etc. End-users dont care when buying a name. If you plan on developing it, then thats a different story.

    Rather look at things like this.

    Is it registered in many other extensions?
    Are there many end-users for it?
    Have similar names sold before?

    Without exact searches you fail at targeting. Not to say cant experiment. With work any site can get traffic.The fact if there are ads already and nobody will see them and even if they did would have to scroll down to find your top listing. Exact searches matter if you want domains with traffic advantages.

    Good EMD always have a exact searches. Probably is 2 or 3 word domain name with one word which do not suit to other words in domain name, as there is as you say loads of broad searches but zero exact searches.

    The EMD is the thing and service those people does. There are loads of ads from the first page. There are 181 million search results and 68k search results in quotations.

    Yeah but have you got a bunch of potential buyers, have you checked Dotdb.com and seen how many other extensions are registered, remember you need to know who you will sell it to. I can find phrases that have over 200k ("the phrase") in Google, but that is not companies or people that want to buy or can use the name.

    Forget about cpc and search results for now, focus on seeing if you have buyers, that is here you will make your money.

    These are the 2 sites you need to worry about

    This is a 2-3 word EMD. Many companies are advertising for the keyword. Loads of ads. The 2-3 word EMD is their main work so as there are multiple ads by companies, they are my buyers right? No .org, .net., .com extension of the EMD has been registered yet.

    But the companies are spending huge money on ads on this.

    You can try. Other extension owners or at least very similar are often your best bet. Good luck

    So there aren't exact searches but the term is mentioned on thousands of pages and people have paid for advertising likely for a shorter keyword version with the advertising still comes up with more keywords. Not all data ever made sense but i would guess that extra word will still have ads displayed.

    Hi

    a good domain for what?


    for parking
    for reselling
    for development

    do the words in the domain make sense?
    if no exact match volume, then most likely, no traffic

    but as always, one has to know the actual domain name in question.

    imo...

    For reselling.

    Yeah it makes sense. Keyword is the service that they do.

    Exact match is no value without search volume and if search volume above 20k and CPC >$2, sure it a good domain and it have huge potential to sell to end user. example runningshoes.com or outdoorfurniture.com etc, but be clear some time google shows search volume of similar keyword for the keyword you typed, like shoesrunning may show the search volume of runningshoes keyword. shoesrunning not worth a dollar.
