I am looking at developing rates.cd The per click amount is well above $1 in the financial industry. I just have to figure out how to go upon finding someone who could design something like this.
I do not have a lot of time to devote to it, probably a directory and RSS feeds.
Yet again, ranking #1 for a search term that doesn't get searched, is like owning a car with no wheels and engine. Sure you'll have a pretty shell, but you aren't going to go any place.
According to keyword trackers around the world, all your 'search phrases' aren't even worth their computing power to track stats on
lol Sundance I do not think that you see the value. If I can rank #1 for "rates.cd" with no content then with the slightest bit of content SEO and back links I could be well on my way to PR1 for "cd rates"
Sure right now the car has no weels but whose to say the car is worth $40,000 and the wheels only cost $200 each?
Again unless you find a complete and utter moron, you've done nothing special. You're simply ranking for the exact match of your domain which no one searches for, and never will search for. When you're ranking for "cd rates" or "rates cd" then you'll have something special.
Either way, there is a sucker born every minute, so it shouldn't be to hard for you to find one.
Sundance, I would of thought you would of been a little smart in terms of SEO. My domain has an exact match for "cd rates"
Look at any search term you put into Google and if there is a domain that matches in "WITHOUT THE PERIOD" I would bet that it is PR1.
I will have to develope it and show you ;)
You have kind of motivated me.
I should have said that so long as you are indexed with Google your domain should, not always, come up first in a search for the domain itself, regardless of any content or ranking.

Put some content on the page using the keywords "cd" and "rates" and get some inbound links to it, and you could well rank well for the domain.
