    When you find a really good domain keyword

    When you find a really good keyword, should you go ahead and register all possible/good domains?

    e.g. running(keyword).com, webmaster(keyword).com, internet(keyword).com, dog(keyword).com.

    I am not going to give away this keyword (might a bit later) but I will tell you that it is an abbreviated word that I have seen many other sites use (and they are pretty good ones too. and when you type it in to google, it seems to recognize this abbreviation as the actual word.

    Would appreciate some feedback.

    Thanks.

    Depends. What are your intentions with the domain?

    I have 7-10 which I intend to develop into high quality sites(it is in my niche) the rest I would probably develop something ordinary on them and sit on it for a few years and maybe sell some/keep others depending on how they perform.

    I would use the GoDaddy to register at least the .net, .org and .info extensions of that domain which is under $15 most of the time PLUS your cost for .com name. You can get a good package in just $25 - $30 and if your keyword is really GOOD then you can surely expect to recover this investment from one extension itself making total 100% profit on the other extensions

    Yes even I hate GoDaddy for their 'Grandpa' speed domain manager . I use name.com. But unfortunately, only GoDaddy comes up with some amazing offers and discounts that I didn't find with any other registrar! (Or is the Murphy's law? )

    What matters most is whether or not people actually use the keyword when they search. If they do not use the word in searches, it doesn't matter if it's in the domain name. Are users using it with the other words you are targeting for the domain when they do a search?

    Use the AdWords Keyword Tool to find out. That tools also gives you all of the best word combinations.

    Searching for the actual domain would be minimal.

    But if it was turned into a decent website, it would be a kick-ass domain and easy to remember (only 3 characters after main keyword).

    I think of virtual real estate just as I do "real" real estate. Vacant land in the real world does not make you money, it cost you money. The same theory should be applied to the virtual real estate. Can the domain make me money today? Can you flip the domain fast and make money?

    If it is a "kick ass" domain why wait to the future to make money? Develop the site today and make money now. From my experience it not hard to make enough money to pay for hosting fees and have enough change to then put petrol in the car.

    If it is truly "kick-ass" why would you wait. Would Bill Gates wait?

    Your right. I have a large sum on money being transferred to namecheap as we speak. I will register as much as possible and try to make them based around my own interests so I am motivated to work on them

    Might also try to flip a dozen or two to get back some of my money
