    You guys make fun of misspelled or one-letter changed noun domains :D, we all did. But, look! COMPANIES USE THEM:

    Are you talking about Kabbage? Yes, there is one...Kabbage.com, have a look how many more there are? You have 1 in a million chance of selling a name like that

    Why is it 1 in a million chance?

    Look at the ridiculousness. It's a loan company using a misspelled vegetable name. Completely unrelated :D

    I think there is merit in typo's and misspelled domains but I think they work better when it's common spelling errors, like for example.... pshycology / psychology / pschology etc...

    Cabbage is a slang term for paper money. They altered it with the K because it's easier to protect their brand. So it all makes sense.

    I regged Qabbage earlier this year. Listed it on bb, and sold it to a NP member in a portfolio sale.

    Swapping a letter seems to only work with certain words. Khristmas is certainly not one of them. Kostume is, Kracker is, Kabbage is.

    Kabbage helped me a lot when I first started domaining, helped me fund many quality purchases (but took a long time to pay them back)

    I own a couple... I don't follow stats; I just believe in myself... I think these kind of names will do very well.. Soon IMO

    Ex.. Kubans, Qleaning,.....
    I even Regged Rhomantic, but keeping it for someone.

    It does work well for every word though

    Lots of ads, billboards for takl, but they mean tackle. At the end of the day it's all about money and advertising...

    I think the trick is not to be too clever, you are assuming everyone else is and that may not be the case with these types of names

    In the last year or so I had offers for Treasry.com, Couturl.com and Tellurl.com

    At the time none of them were listed anywhere. So there is a market for 'branded keywords'.

    You must be a millennial that doesn't watch too many old black and white movies. "Cabbage" has been used in the US since at least the early 1900's. In the movies it is usually used by gangsters and those that haven't had much "cabbage" in their life.

    Outside of the movies, about the only time I hear it used these days is by some wannabe hipster...
