I wanted to make the title of this post to be “Are there any domain names left?” I didn’t because there are obviously still countless names left for you to choose, but the exact domain name you want is probably not available. It is already registered to somebody. Don’t you hate it when a name that you want is not there? It is like every simple word in the dictionary is a domain name that has been registered to somebody. The only ones left are two + words names. But you have to be creative about that because someone else has probably thought about that domain name you came up with and has already registered it.
What is annoying about all this is that you have a project in mind you want to do and the domain is already registered and parked. To me, basically the domain is wasting there. It is just idle. Then if you are lucky, you would see a page saying that you can own this domain or something similar. If you click on the link, it would take you to Sedo (a buy and sell domain website). Then the owner would expect you to place a bid or you might see the domain at a ridiculous price.
This has made people to form all type of names for their blogs. If you are looking for a domain name, you can buy an existing name from somebody. If you buy from Sedo, you have to pay the owner and the owner has to give Sedo its commission for listing the domain, thereby making the domain expensive. If you want to buy a domain, you can go to any webmaster forum such as digitalpoint forum or flippa market. You can make a new thread requesting to buy a domain or send private messages to someone selling domain names. Once you have have your domain go start making money.
Another thing you can do is use a generic domain and then use a page on your site with the proper keyword URL to target the keyword. For example this person wanted the keyword “make money with affiliate programs” but that wasn’t available so they just used a page on their site.
