Trending domain name keywords: crypto, bit coin, ethereum, mining

The top 10 trending keywords registered in .COM and .NET domain names during the month of November 2017 were published by Verisign, the .com and .net registry.

Crypto related keywords dominate the list and have replaced cannabis related keywords from last month.

Keep in mind that this list shows the difference between November and October so I am sure that the “Blockchain” keyword (that was in last month’s lists) is still going strong although it does not appear in the list below.

My experience shows that only 2 or 3 thousand domain registrations are enough to bring a keyword into the top 10.

You can find the list from last month here.

Top 10 Keyword Registration Trends for .COM and .NET in November 2017:

coin coin
crypto bit
 bit  crypto
 bitcoin first
 coins  mail
 ethereum  bitcoin
 currency cash
amazon buy
cryptocurrency  search
 mining  email

*These are not the top 10 keywords overall but rather the keywords that saw the highest increase in terms of domain name registrations in the past month. Each list was developed by examining keyword registration growth relative to the preceding month, such that those keywords with the highest percentage of registration growth are being reported on. This method is used to eliminate commonly registered keywords, such as “online” and “shop,” to provide a true look at monthly trends.

If you’d like to do your own domain name keyword research, check out Verisign Domain View, a tool that allows you to enter keywords to see registration trends in .COM and .NET.
