Domain Appraisals - HOW

 6:35 pm on Feb 12, 2010 (gmt 0)

When they appraise your domain one thing they look at is the number of
Google Web Results.

My question is: do they use the quotation and leave a space between the keywords when doing so:

i.e. "keyword1 keyword2 keyword3" or is it simply: keyword1 keyword2 keyword3?

the number of search results for my domain is over half a billion with the space in between the keywords and without the quotations.

Does that count as anything or should I not get too excited?

The standard is "in quotes" or "exact match".

The " " cut down the noise, the spurious stuff, the filler . . and the inflation.

Non-quoted results will often be 5-10Xs+ the "exact match".

There was a time, a long time ago in W3-time, when I set my aftermarket bids based upon X#-dollars per 100K exact match results.

Then PPC came along and crunching the numbers became a bit more complex. ;P

Yes, with "example1 example2" its over 50 Million results. And w/o it its 500 Million so as you said its 10X.

I did however use the space in between the keywords or else it would be a little over 50,000 results.
