Yup, it’s the second week of the month and you know what time it is, right? That’s right! It’s time for Verisign’s Top Trending Keywords Report.
Moments ago, Verisign published to its blog June’s trending keywords registered for .com and .net domains.
This month’s list of keywords is interesting, to say the least. This month’s keywords — libra, snafu, psychedelic, casino, bet, and currency — do not have a thing in common at first glance.
Right of the bat, I can tell you that many folks were hand registering domains containing “libra” and “currency” due to Facebook’s newly announced cryptocurrency: Libra.
Morgan Linton, fellow domain investor and serial entrepreneur, recently covered why peeps investing in Libra domains is foolish and likely to end in a UDRP.
As for other similar keywords, a number of newly registered domains containing gambling keywords such as “poker”, “bet”, “casino”, and “boat”. This upward tick in gambling domains is likely due to more states legalizing offline/online gambling.
As usual, the remaining keywords in both .com and .net lists are a bit of an enigma as to why they are trending keywords during the month of June.
Well, that’s all for now. Stay tuned for next month’s list!
