Update 2015: Out of curiosity I checked the search volume for the exact match phrase “memorial day 2011” in he Google AdWords Keyword Planner Tool. Can you believe it averages 1000 searches per month? Never would have thought that. The domain has expired and is available :)
Are you vacationing this spring? Lots of folks take a trip over Memorial Day weekend, which is coming up soon. I’m planning to enjoy some time off for the holiday while I reflect on the sacrifice of fallen U.S. soldiers. But… I can’t remember the exact date. It’s usually on a Monday, I recall. Oh wait, I’ll do a quick Google search for: “memorial day 2011.”
I just thought it was kind of funny that someone reserved the .org domain for the exact keyword phrase I was looking for, down to the very year of 2011. It will be interesting to see how well the exact match domain SEO tactic works next year at this time. Have a great Memorial Day!
