Fake words in names can be like Fake News - they can lead you to something other than the desired result. So-called "brandable" domains - often words that are made up or misspelled - rarely pass the "radio test" and can be costly to build into a memorable SEO friendly brand. On the other hand, a domain comprised of a keyword or keywords can create a powerful brand that is easy to identify and ranks well in organic search. And with marketplaces like Names.club, a strong keyword domain can be had for a low monthly fee, creating opportunities for end-users and investors alike.
