    Came across a hardly used adjective descriptive keyword similar to awesome or great et etc that could be used in combo with high traffic keywords or more like highly searched keywords
    . If you could choose one set up either the adjective keyword in front or after at thee end which combo set up would you choose?

    The natural adjective + noun?

    But what if the noun or object or service gets the most searches per month should that noun or word instead be put in the front of the domain even if it sounds like improper English?

    Like instead of greatvideo.com?
    Videogreat.com?

    GreatVideo makes sense.
    VideoGreat is dumb.

    Waste of money to buy the dumb one, because that is not how people speak. A Pig-Latin domain, is not a sell-able domain. (unless, I guess, one know and sells to Pig-Latin speakers.)

    I figured that.

    even if say the word "great" for argument sake got only 49,500 searches per month? it's still just smart to go with the natural

    Adjective + Noun or service scenario?

    The amount of searches per individual word in a phrase is irrelevant. It's the phrase itself with the words joined together that makes up the search keyword as a whole.
    I don't see anyone searching for "video great" except within a longtail like "what makes a video great" etc. While longtail searches are more targeted and therefore easier to rank for, they are also far and few between....

    Furthermore, the content on the site itself is what gives the serp traffic. You're just not going to get much, if any at all type ins on a domain name that doesn't make sense. Plus, if it did ever rank in serps, the site name will deter clicks because it sounds like a bad translation from a foreign language speaker...

    ok here's an adjective WOW.

    couldn't WOW work as

    WOW + keyword?
    or
    Keyword +WOW?

    like nailsWOW.com!

    hahaha. nice one! bad translation from a foreign language speaker.
    eehhh back to the drawing board! lol

    but what if despite ALL THAT. it sounds like a great kickass brandable?

    Don't complicate things.. It's all about the sound. BlueApron sounds good while ApronBlue doesn't...
    We get too technical and calculate everything.. we take away the power of our imagination and branding acumen and leave it to google stats... Google is generally a good reference but not in every case.

    It doesn't matter what comes first.. as long as it sounds good and makes sense..Trust in yourself..
    Contrary to popular opinion.. the your brain may be way more advanced than google...

    Two word brandables are my speciality... I believe so.

    Google is a great compliment

    when it comes to keyword phrases if it just dont sound right stay away. The keyword planner may even trick you on this one.

    You know what's annoying in the past is when I show some experts my reg 9 times out of ten they always say no value even though to me I cant see why there wouldn't be then the experts pull out the numbers book to prove their point like the Namebio book and the keyword planner blah blah.

    But now that I'm using these "books" I'm being told (by people outside this thread)I'm still wrong. ( No offense to the people who replied here)

    I brought up this question because Mike Mann said that in the future 2 keyword domains will be the next big thing. After single word domains.

    I understand you. But the "experts" don't know everything and shouldn't control your personal gift of choosing brands. You have to develop it over time. I used the appraisal section on namepros, but don't do as much, anymore.. except for certain names. Because names that were not given much worth sold for four figures more than once, even names that were considered worth dropping.

    I realized that people can't really appraise 2 word brandables, beyond maybe an obvious name like goodfood.com. 2 word brandables are not like llll.com chips where you can say the market value is this or that. It takes vision, to get a ball park price. How brandable is the name is to be used for a certain niche... Can it be easily replaced or is it just plain unique.

    I have names like HappyEscape.com.. that I've gotten 4 figure offers for and even weird names like sticktag.com i've gotten 4 figure offers for. i sold yestag.com, classtag.com, cheapons.com(see feedbackI got: https://www.namepros.com/threads/closed.830264/#post-4680451 )

    I love namepros and the advice here makes you better, but my point is you have to believe in yourself, in your personal gift to choose a brand. What if i let those names expire because someone said reg fee or google search is low etc.. ????

    I own over 500 two word domains almost all hand regs... I believe every one will sell. I have always loved two word brandables...and never lost focus. I don't know if it suits everybody,but that's my niche..

    That is called your gut feeling. Trust it from time to time. Mine has steered me into very nice profits where others would frown.
