Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Domains Dominate .COM and .NET November Keywords

verisign-com-net-imageWith the skyrocketing interest in, and prices of, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, it’s no surprise there’s an increased interest in related keywords for those registering .com and .net keywords.

For November, Verisign announced this week in their monthly update that Bitcoin- and cryptocurrency-related keywords were 9 of the top 10 trending English keywords registered in .com domain names while for .net the figure was 4.

As Verisign explains, there is often a correlation between domain name registrations and newsworthy and popular events, as well as anticipated trends.

Here are the top 10 trending keywords registered in November 2017:

.COM

.NET

coin coin
crypto bit
 bit  crypto
 bitcoin first
 coins  mail
 ethereum  bitcoin
 currency cash
amazon buy
cryptocurrency  search
 mining  email

The lists are developed by Verisign examining keyword registration growth relative to the preceding month, such that those keywords with the highest percentage of registration growth are being reported on. This method is used to eliminate commonly registered keywords, such as “online” and “shop,” to provide a true look at monthly trends. In order to be included, a keyword must experience a minimum threshold in registration growth month over month. Qualifying keywords with the highest volume of registrations are then ranked and included in the list.
