I always wanted to know this and i would be grateful if you can help. Thanks
That depends upon a lot of factors like whether it is brandable or not if there are zero searches. Might be a new technology or just something smart that nobody else thought about.
Some buyers want new brandable names. Just sold a brandable for 5K that was dropped before and it's not a real word (no traffic as yet) so they are going to have to get their marketing guys to work.
Are you talking about a domain that you want to sell or develop?
For selling a name, search volume means nothing to me, the amount of end-users and potential buyers is what counts to me.
I was talking about a domain i want to sell. So does it means search volume is important if i want to develop it? Also how do i know about the amount of end-users and potential buyers? Is there a ressource to find it out?
Really? So not at all important?
I did not say that.
You asked for minimum. So, the minimum would be zero. There are names that I like and I would never go and check search volume. Don't care if there are zero.
I am sure there were zero searches for "exxon", when that company chose that made-up word as its brand.
Search volume is just one of the parameters. I never even bother checking for it, but I am sure some investors use it as supplemental factor and do fine.
If you are going to do outbound on Geo's (NewYorkFlorist.com etc etc) it would be nice to have a decent monthly search volume to share with potential clients - for this I would personally look for 500+ monthly searches. Other people might have a different figure in mind for this niche........
Depends on industry for example if you have 1000 hits a day in adult you probably would make cents a day. Have that in casino traffic and your probably making dollars.
any numbers ?
Sir are you talking about EXACT MATCH SEARCH. Thanks for the answer.
Imho only when targeting a keyword does search volume matter. Brandables it's not a factor. I would not buy anything with less than a 1000 monthly searches if targeting a keyword.
Thank you, and are there some estimates if the sector is worth around 2B and there are 12k exact searches per month for a 2kw .com ?
another question for a 1 kw in .xyz with 200k exact searches / month in a saturated market. what will be the value of such name.
PS: estibot valuate both around the same price
edit : exact match, non geo domains.
Search volume only really matters for GEOs and exact match domains.
For brandables it doesn't matter at all.
beside volume (I would look for 30k+) CPC, mainstream alternatives, product prospects, margins and so much more comes into play than just gross traffic when evaluating.
I did some research, I think the number Estibot is giving out is probably what your midlevel result in a sale would be. A energy or utility business would not be surprised to to see you get 50k.
Curious to learn more: (1) What's your sense of what made them spend $5k for no traffic when they could hand-reg it another with their creativity? What swung the deal? (2) Also what is your definition of a great brandable name? If you looked at a name and said "that's a great brandable name" what elements would it have for you to say Great? Your thoughts?
re: NewYorkFlorist.com: Where does one find what the monthly searches are for it? Do you google an exact search quoting: "NewYorkFlorist.com" OR "NewYorkFlorist" OR "New York Florist" OR something else? Hoping to get unconfused... I'd like clarity. thank you...
1. Nothing swung the deal. It was bought at the price I set by an unknown buyer. Automated purchase. No website yet.
2. This name had to do with vitality so a generic sounding positive word that suited the new owner's requirements. I guess they wanted a fresh sounding name. It appealed to me because of the wise range of uses within beauty, cosmetics, canna, healthcare etc which meant a wider market to sell it.
I have many domain names that have millions of monthly searches. I am developing most of them right now.
Thanks sharing, may I pm you ?
For me that number is 45,000
some of this is over my head as a new domainer... HOW (where) can I put in a domain name and see monthly searches? Please explain in elementary terms.
Heres a picture
An exact match .xyz domain wt 300k search/month & .05 cpc
I get about 800k-1M visits/ month but i can hardly make money with ads(if i put up some)
Search vol is important when u want to develope a site , and u really need a good content to rank
Selling an emd domain based on its its search vol is kinda ... ??? Idk what to call it
If u have an emd, thats not a guarantee you'll get massive traffic , u might screw it up
Too many factors to look up
