    Yesterday I was doing a bit of research on keywords strings relating to a successful European travel related website I own and its associated niches.

    Using estibot I found a longtail (3 words) that was great for adsense with many searches and high paying words. When I checked, I never thought anything would be available, the exact match was there in the .eu extension.

    I registered it because I thought it was worth the punt due to my experience in this niche.

    So do you think .eu domains are any good for this type of project?

    Keyword rich domains can be developed into sites which can generate traffic from Google. If you are prepared to develop then they are probably worth a punt, as you say.

    Just don't expect much (any) type in traffic.

    Target audience

    If your target audience will be internet users who know about the .eu extension that would be helpful. After you work and get some ranking you want people to have some built in trust of your domain.

    If you are looking for a great .eu key word domain that will only go up in value check this out it has huge searches and hi ppc 2 days left on sedo auction reserve met . Auction Detail-Sedo.co.uk

    CheapCarInsurance.eu
    This domain is very brandable for a european car insurance company including the uk and irland and other european countries, a solid investment . If developed the rewards would be very good . Huge searches 246,000 exact searches and 673,000 broad searches with highest ppc around £14 per click around $23 this domain will rise fast in value dont miss this solid investment. Good car insurance domains right now are like gold dust very hard to get because the traffic is the most expensive on the net and the car insurance affiliates are very big pay outs , aloso .eu domains prices are now on the rise do not let this great investment opportunity slip.
