Verisign launched a new monthly blog series: Top 10 Keywords Registered in .COM and .NET.
These are not actually the top 10 keywords but actually the keywords with the most growth in the previous month. This method is used to eliminate commonly registered keywords such as “online” and “shop”.
“With more than 220 million domain names registered globally, there are numerous examples of trends reflected by domain name registrations. In an effort to better illustrate .COM and .NET domain registration trends, Verisign is launching a new monthly blog post series that will identify the top 10 trending .COM and .NET keywords registered in English; our own zeitgeist of trending domain topics. The keywords from the preceding month will be published on the second Tuesday of each month on Between the Dots.
Each list will be developed by examining keyword registration growth for the preceding month, such that those keywords with the highest percentage of registration growth will be reported on. This method is used to eliminate commonly registered keywords such as “online” and “shop” so we can provide a true look at monthly trends.
To kick off this series, below are the top 10 trending keywords in English for .COM and .NET during the month of January 2015. Any surprises?”
