    What's everyones preference on Geo domains?

    Personally I think the Geo+Service sounds better.

    Do people base there registrations based on search volumes? For example I own LondonCarpetCleaning.com. Google Keyword Planner gives me the below results:

    carpet cleaning london - 4,400
    london carpet cleaning - 210

    Can anyone explain the huge gap?

    I think it's more natural to write the service first then the location?

    How is it natural though, that's what confuses me too.

    Imagine a business card for example, would you really print "Carpet Cleaning London" as opposed to "London Carpet Cleaning"? Or have I lost the plot more than originally thought. :p

    It's nothing to do with what's on a business card or what's advertised. It's just the natural way people search for things. They put in what they want and bolt their location on the end sometimes.

    Or, they search for carpet cleaning, realise it's too generic and then bolt London on the end.

    I agree with Dave, they are much more suited for a business.

    I just tried it with 2 other geo domains I own:

    LanzaroteApartments.com:
    lanzarote apartments 1,600
    apartments lanzarote 720

    PortWashingtonRealEstate.com:
    port washington real estate 590
    real estate port washington 20

    I get a different result this time, the above 2 seem to be a benefit based on the searches.

    Services are different though. People search for place hotels, place apartments etc but services tend to be service location etc

    To add to this. I was purely commenting on the search. Nothing to do with domain names or company names.

    You hit the nail on the head.

    If I want a plumber in London this is how it usually works out when searching:

    First you type plumber since that's your main priority at that moment.

    Then you realise that a location is necessary to get the results you want so you throw in London after it.

    You'd think London plumber would be what you'd search for but in fact it's the opposite.

    Emd bonus is over and search engines are smarter geo wise type in the service they’ll automatically show ones near you without the geo word being added(at present little hit and miss) as there grip tightens so will accuracy of results?
    Search results can be misleading just because its typed doesn’t mean its clients wanting the service? you have a plethora of others who are not looking for the service but looking to sell you something lol

    Btw in a city your more likerly to type the borough e.g. Hammersmith service or vice versa not London
