    Im just trying to learn whats good and whats bad. Funny....A week ago i thought i knew something (LOL) but now i know i dont :)

    So can i ask:

    A one word domain - its a .net.au
    Globals 6,120,000 Local 165,000 CPC AU$0.62 Adwords tool showing very little competition on that exact word.

    Its a poor CPC but would you think its a "workable" domain, taking into account its very easy to remember??

    The .com. .com.au and the .net are all parked domains.

    Im hoping this info will allow for a "rough opinion" or two :)

    Thanks guys :)

    It's very difficult to say without knowing more information, particularly what niche the keyword is in.

    I only go net.au when it's a strong keyword that I plan to develop, and only when I'm building a website intended to gain traffic from search engines rather than branding.

    If you're only registering for resale rather than development, I wouldn't bother unless it was a super strong keyword, all of which would be taken anyway.

    That's alot of search volume if the match type was set to exact. Is there a clear way to monetise the domain?

    If the search volume is so high, yet the competition is low than it sounds like a very broad keyword.. and as such may be hard to build a site for and make good money from.

    PM me the name if you want.

    That is exactly what i thought may be the issue. Im asking more a a learning curve rather than getting this exact name and the fact i cant see clearly what the site would do, well that probably confirms your thoughts.

    I will send you a pm anyway :)

    Go for it.
    I have .net.au domains with Lousy Search results and Low CPC that still pay for themselves.

    Maybe this is just me but it's worth the risk if you believe at the very least you can pay off the investment

    If you quantify your time and add that into the investment cost...then maybe.

    Are your results in Exact Match, Phrase Match or Broad Match?

    Like said if it is in a good niche it is worth it, I purchased some random insurance .net.au's around 10 month ago, now I see decent results from them, yet I have invested time into them.
