Benefits of Keyword Domains

Drives Traffic

Better positioning in search results. All things being equal, a keyword domain can help your website rank higher since your domain name matches the desired keyword or phrase that was searched. Higher search rankings result in more leads coming to your website!

Limited Supply

Direct Navigation

Direct Navigation happens when a person types a keyword or phrase into the address bar of their web browser and appends a .com. This type-in traffic ranges from tens to tens of thousands of unique visitors per month, depending on the keyword or phrase.

Domain Authority

The most important benefit of a keyword domain name. They have immediate recognition by users as being authoritative. That instinctual preference to select the exact match domain name in search results builds your reputation with users.
