Brandable Domains Surge in 2014
2014 was the year that saw brandable domains take significant market share in terms of .com domain name sales.
There are several theories on why this trend accelerated in 2014, but the most common two are the scarcity of good “keyword” matching domains and the changes in Google’s search algorithm which has places less and less importance on “exact match domains”. For these two primary reasons, 2015 looks to be a banner year for brandable domains.
