  1. There is life below #1 🙂 but I would also suggest the following keyword phrases…

    Premium Domains
    Premium Domain Names
    Generic Domains
    Generic Domain Names
    Buy Domain
    Buy Domains

    Comprar Dominios
    Dominios Genericos
    Dominios en Español

  2. domain appraisal:

    premium domains:

    cheap domains:

    bargain domains:

    escrow / domain escrow:

    register domain:

    numeric domains:

    domain parking: Wikipedia

  3. It shouldn’t be to anyone’s surprise to see 5/19 of Elliots and 4/8 of Francois’s lists included exact match domains. Also 6/18 of Elliot’s were dominated by big brands (Goaddy & Wikipedia).

    While an exact match domain doesn’t guarantee a #1 ranking, it can sure add a boost that requires non-EMD domains to work a little harder on their linkbuilding.

  4. I’m not surprised by the top two but am surprised that if you search for “domain registrars” that wikipedia comes up, I would have thought that some of the major registrars like HG, Bluehost or GD would come up for this search term!.
