    I've noticed a lot of domains popping up in the SERP's with a x at the end of there keywords,

    ie.
    looseweightx.com
    clearacnex.com

    Just wondering what a few of your opinions are on this is?
    Do you think google ignore the x?

    Is it worth registering domains like this?

    In my opinion i think people register such names because it sounds better than using other variations other than x

    Not sure if you were actually thinking of buying looseweightx, but just incase, it's lose not loose. Of course they look at the X in the domain, otherwise how would they handle words like example, latex, etc. I mean, there are actually words that have X in them, you know. I assure you they look at the X.

    some years back before apple launched its ipod, the i was a popular prefix and postfix to product names. corel draw 10i, autocad 10i and so on. so maybe its the age of x now

    Here's one thought - x is less likely to be mis-spelled then y - if someone says "go to loseweighty dot com", some people might hear it as "why" rather than "y". Phonetics can be a bit of a factor in domain names.

    Not only does the X at the end help for SEO, it's a great branding component to increase your CTR

    seems like a great idea... I think google will just ignore the x and treat it as misspelled.

    I heard that once upon a time, Google used to consider domains that ended in "2k" were exactly the same as exact keyword matches. Dunno if that's still the case though... =P

    i am not sure, but if i didn't find the EMD (.com .net .org .co) then i will try to get the domain with EMD+s. e.g. antivirussoftwares.com, linkgenerators.com etc.

    and i think the "x" in domain name is worth to try if you have seen some good results in SERPs. the main thing is you have the keyword in your domain.
