Your question was: How is it to work for GoDaddy.com in Arizona?.

Thakns for your comment.

But anyone can justify with some reasoning?..

Comment #1

It depends....

If you are planning on having just one game, then game.com.

If you are planning on having more than one game, then games.com..

Comment #2

It really depends on usage. Sometimes I go for singular, sometimes plural. If you are going for a particular game, then something like crazygame.xyz might be preferred, branding your particular game. With something like crazygames.xyz you might be looking more at a directory or review type of usage.

I monetize a lot of the domains I own, and frequently the plural monetizes better since it is frequently more consistent with a review, consistent with a ppc page.

Assuming you have some concrete things in mind, I would suggest getting a free account at adwords.google.com. Then type the versions you are considering into the keyword search box. List one keyword string per line in the search box. The results will return a page of ratings for your keyword options.

The results page will list "average search volume" and "advertiser competition". The search volume and competition are relative values (0 to 1), unlike the old overture listings which gave absolute numbers of searches. There is also information on search trends. So pick those terms which have the highest adword competition and search volume. This will give you a real basis for choosing a phrase, based in google statistics.

Good luck,.

I own GAME.pro, and would not trade it for the plural...

Comment #4

As would I. However, if you can only take one, googleduel.com can show you which one is searched for more...

The plural works better here because it's got a describing word in front of it. On it's own the singular would be preferable because it would make it more brandable.

You can back this up by putting in the word Game into dnsaleprice.com. The top 3 sales are plurals but have words before games but the top single word domains are singular.

I think there are exceptions to this rule. For example, Games.info would be worth more than Game.info for my money because information is a plural concept, the plural is more commonly used than the singular, and people would be expecting information on more than one game.

For keywords where the singular is used more frequently than the plural, I would stick with the singular. For example, I prefer Hotel.info to Hotels.info.

To gauge whether the singular or plural is used more regularly I put the word into a Google search. Game has 603m Google uniques versus 956m for Games but Hotel has 518m to 322m for Hotels.

This test doesn't always work because a word might have multiple meanings and one of those meanings might be driving the keyword value but another might be pushing up the Google uniques.

For example, Rates is one of my favourite keywords because it's flexible and commercial. I would rather have the plural in every extension but the Google uniques for Rate is higher than the plural because of the "How would you rate that?" additional meaning which isn't where the keyword value is coming from.

If I have a singular versus plural dilemma I often ask people who aren't into domaining what they think sounds better...

In this case, it's a matter of what you want out of the domain. Do you want branding? Or do you want a category killer generic name?.

Game.com is much more brandable than Games.com. We've all heard advertising lines such as "Bring on The Game", "The Game" or "Game On" etc.

Somehow, "Bring on The Games", "The Games" or "Games On" don't have the same ring to it.

If you're trying to create not a brand name that you can put up on t-shirts, then Games.com is much better. Its a category sweeping name that is much more generic in nature...

Comment #7

If for a number of games I would say games.com, but as others have mentioned, maybe worth going for both, depending on your plans...

Comment #8

This was discussed before, it depends largely on the term.

I would go with Games.com rather than Game.com.

But again, it depends on term, and not a certain formula....

Comment #9

I had the same dilemma too, and I went for the plurar one,.

But it may different in some cases,.

So I would use both...
