One of the thing you see all the time at auctions are single word verbs but in all forms of tense. Instead of the highly desired name, (ex. Practice), you are seeing present tense with “ing”, (ex. practicing). Or past tense with “ed” (ex. practiced). You are seeing these one offs of good keywords because people still see them as one word dot coms. True in word count but not the same quality as the “regular” version of the word. They sell all the time but I hardly ever see them sold to an end user. I’m sure someone can show me some examples but for every one I can show you 10 that sold at auction but are just be passed around to the lesser fool that buys them.
To make matters worse, new domain investors buy them thinking they have a killer one word dot com because its so close to an actual killer domain name. They get upset when you tell them that they own a low quality name even though its a tense away from a five six figure name. To explain why one is good and one isn’t becomes difficult. Especially because they really don’t want you to explain why. It’s also word by word. There are no general rules to help them make a better choice in the future. Other than try and stay away from ing and ed names.
