Most Common City Names in US - Brainstorm
#1
Lightbulb 
Here's a list of the most common names of cities/towns in the US. For example there are 42 towns in the USA named "Franklin".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_th...lace_names

It seems I'm missing something and can't quite come up with it...maybe local sites using these city names so that you can increase your potential market of buyers? For example buy a domain like "FranklinBikes.com" and you have 42 potential customers interested in the site (assuming every Frankin has a bike shop).

The downside of this is it's a one time sale. You build something and sell it. Then have to build another to be able to sell it.

On the other hand, it being a one time sale is because there can only be one "FrankinBikes.com" creating real scarcity.

How can marketers possibly use this?

MikesBikesFranklin.com
MikesBikesFranklinUS.com
MikesBikesFranklinUSA.com
MikesBikesFranklinTN.com MikesBikesFranklinGA.com etc.

MikesBikesInFranklinUS.com
MikesBikesInFranklinUSA.com
MikesBikesInFranklinTN.com MikesBikesInFranklinGA.com etc.

In my city there are more than one YADA Resturants owned by the same company. Being local resturants we differentiated the domian names by integrating the street name in the domain name:
YadaResturant.com
YadaOnFranklin.com
Frankline street happens to be a popular street  for both tourist and locals. Franklin street also happens to be associated with 1st class store fronts, so locally the domain name is also associated with a 1st class geo.

People wise: There happens to be more than one Franklin street in this state. Header and Footer with full addrees, city, state, zip to include telephone.

SEO wise: There happens to be more than one Franklin street in this state. Meta description with full addrees, city, state, zip to include telephone. Search engine wise it is not really mandatory according to Google. However, other search engines that specialize in relevant data (theater tickets, community transportation, etc.) suggest it, so better to cover all bases.

There are more such as Google Maps, Review sites and so on that also have differnt types of impact on the domain name and visibility.

Lease the domain along with hosting as a package. Monthly or annual recurring income.

How about this:

Make a list of cities/towns that appear in a number of different states.

Make a list of popular businesses. (I posted a link to this somewhere...maybe a private Pheeds forum?).

Combine the lists and search for expired/available domain names like:
FranklinBikes.com
FranklinDentist.com

When one is found send post cards to bike shops or dentists in all the Franklin cities explaining that FranklinBikes.com is now available, but there's only one person that can have it and there's a bunch of other Franklin (and bike shops).

I think it would be tough to rank and rent first because there are so many Franklins and it isn't certain where to get local citations from.

This could be another angle for finding expired domain names with a good potential built-in market. I wonder how many "Main Street Delis" there are? I think the key is finding domain names where at least a dozen businesses would want that domain name and those businesses are easy to contact. And the key to this is finding common patterns/themes.

I once read some advice on creating a domain name when the one you're trying to get is already taken. It's been a number of years back but that advice was to simply add a small case letter to the end of the URL string.

Maybe instead of franklinbikes.com make it franklinbikesa.com or franklinbikes_a.com
