    Hi,

    I was wondering when I type food city or foodcity into google and use both "pages from Australia" and "the web" the domain foodcity.com.au appears?
    I am intending to build a site for it but have not yet done anything with it.
    This doesn't happen with any of my other domains on sedo?



    Regards,
    Rus

    Hey Tim,

    My question wasn't very explained very well.

    I was more questioning about when I type in food city why my domain even shows up on the first page of google?
    Because none of my other domains which I have parked on sedo can even be found when I type them into google.
    But foodcity.com.au shows up on the top of the list when I click pages from Australia?

    Is it because it's not really a common search phrase and the domain is stronger in search results?

    i'd think its because its not a common search term, check your analytics for volume


    especailly considering there are no other .com.au's on the results page for me

    Few reasons.
    Site is indexed. Has (dodgy) internal links that are manipulating the result. Low/no search volume. MOstly the last one though.
