    Based on your experience, what is the correlation between google search volume and type-in traffic of a domain name, if any? How reliable a predictor is google search volume of organic type-ins? What is the general ratio?

    The more results the worse off you are and the higher your actual exact searches the better off you are. There is no ratio eg 100,000,000 results and 25 exact searches meaning a lot of work for no result or 10,000,000 results and 500k of exact searches also meaning decent share to be had. I often get people trying to sell names with millions results and little to no searches thinking they have something.

    Thanks for your insight. I'm more interested in the search volume of the keyphrase rather than the search results. Assuming I have a domain that has a keyword search volume (not search results volume) of 20k/month, is that a helpful gauge of how much type-in traffic to expect?

    You still have to get it placed on front page to get any results really. I have loads of tools over a few sites to assist.

    The actual type ins you will get will be low but the fact a site has any clicks without content is a miracle. The more work you do content and marketing the more it will move forward with forward potential. I could embarrass my self confirming much higher searches with trickles of traffic without content.

    I decided to address my conundrum by running a little experiment. I purchased 10 domains with moderate google searches (approx. 3k/month) and did 301 redirects to different landing pages on a site with referrer tracking. So far, it looks like an average of 2 type-ins per day, which is better than I expected. That works out to be 7,300 targeted visitors a year for a reasonable price of less than $90 per year.

    My consensus is that finding domains with higher search volumes will improve those numbers in my favor and proportionately reduce my marketing cost.

    Can you be sure of its accuracy?
    I mean,
    how do you know whether a visitor is organic and is really interested in your targeted keywords or you just got a crawler/bot or maybe random traffic from people that test domains/keywords etc.?

    If I was doing your test, I would setup landers with clickable keyword terms (or some short text) and check who clicks them

    Very valid questions.
    1. Each domain is redirected to a specific landing page on the tracking website.
    2. The site has a 'coming soon' page with no menu (navigation).
    3. None of the domains have any backlinks yet, so it's highly unlikely any bots will crawl them.
    4. The referrer will always be the respective domain name when it's type-in traffic.
    5. The domains are created from proper nouns...like johndoe.com. It is safe to assume the visitors are the bearers of these names. Now even it's domainers doing keyword checks, it's still a good sign...I think.
    I will have more data to work with once I officially launch.

    Hi

    unless there is measurable volume, with extension included in query, then no ratio.

    the old overture tool was the best for gauging whether a word/phrase would have type-in traffic.
    still have some acquired using it, and they continue to get some traffic.

    imo...
