I look at a lot of names, usually around ideas of my own, but often around a trend that’s breaking. Here’s a couple of names I found irresistible today. ‘Collaborative consumption’ is a buzz word around the phenomenon of sharing things rather than owning them outright. It’s estimated, for example, that the average electric drill will see a total of 12 minutes use in its lifetime. “What you really need is the hole, not the drill.” (Rachel Botsman, Collaborative Consumption at TED) People are starting to figure out how to share locally. Cars, for instance, sitting in garages while you’re at work, or in the driveway when you’re home for the weekend have become a target for peer to peer sharing. It’s kind of obvious the minute you think of it. There seems to be quite a lot of activity in the startup community around sharing cars. I was surprised to find that my first choice for a name, P2PCar.com, was available. I hope that, as new companies come into the space, one will be happy to find that a great name is available for a reasonable price.
As for MowFo? I saw that it dropped recently. I put it in my interesting list. And then I tried to forget about it. But I couldn’t. I just kept picturing a gardening truck driving by me with MowFo.com on the side. Or wouldn’t it be a great name for a grass cutting Roomba?
Long story short: I personally would develop the variants and have one site be the “money site” and the other sites be doorway or reference sites that link to the money site. 301 redirect makes sense if there is existing traffic but odds are not much so you are better off creating something that is capable of being indexed and ranked.
I’ve been asking this whenever I’m around people who might know:
Where you own both… The plural so often makes a better sounding storefront, but the singular keyword often scores 10x or more exact match searches per month. Pointing the singular to the plural with a 301 redirect seems to be the general advice. But that would only generate what little type-in traffic the singular domain got.
In my own experiments I’ve been able to score top 10 in Google for exact match plural keyword search, but disappear off the search results for (much more competition) singular (using 301 redirect approach). Wondering if building out the singular keyword domain could make a difference. But also, don’t want to risk duplicate content penalties.
Probably the best answer I’ve received so far comes from a well known domain developer (whose name I won’t mention because it was in an email and I haven’t asked his permission to quote him) . Would still hope to get a definitive answer with some examples and stats at some point.

NFC is coming. This domain registration is around an idea where a store or restaurant owner creates an NFC Here! sticker encoded with the information they want to share via NFC. That simple- log in to NFCHere.com, fill out a short form, and pay for the number of stickers you want. A few days later, the stickers show up at your door.
It’s very likely that there will be many competing NFC payment/deal portals made available to retailers. The idea here is to give the store owner themselves some control over exactly what is shared, in addition to what Google or Mastercard are doing.
