    scotlandbreak.com
    scotlandbreak.co.uk
    irelandbreak.com
    irelandbreak.co.uk

    The plural of all the keywords would have a higher value, but worth sitting on for a while...i've certainly registered worse :smile:

    thanks for that i normally avoid the 's'
    break is part of breaks and i'm not sure if google puts any weight in the plurals? they mean the same thing.
    harder still is to say

    "scotishbreak" or scotlandbreak = scotish break sounds better and more "right" but the overture results would suggest that more people who search for "scotland break" - hence the strange sounding selection.

    still not sure if it was a good move or not - the fact that no one esle has regged any is .....er.....bad :D

    But to get clicks through the search engines (Google et al) they're going to have to be developed.

    Parking pages don't usually do very well.

    .co.uk perform better than .com in the UK now.

    :wink:

    not been a "drop catcher" in the sense of automated systems. All my domains are ear-marked for development (i reckon i need the next 300 years). if i ever get around to doing them i'd be a rich man.

    if the rare parked clicks cover the reg fee for 2 years then its still on the list

    Yeah, I like your sites, expecially the bikini one ;-)

    real nice design etc.

    One suggestion if I may thought, we found new .com sites performed really badly after Google went "Local". We moved some clients onto their .co.uk extension and saw massive improvements almost immediately. Don't know if that helps or not!!
