    well the title says it all.. after spending whole night looking for a worthy domain for my business I ended up jumping from one page to another and came across to this domain.

    is there any point in buying an EMD ?

    GKT says it's a low competition keyword... and on first page of google there isn't even one site dedicated exactly to this kw expect wikipedia page and couple of news articles

    note - it has 2.25m EXACT MATCH searches

    Hmm.. good job, what you should do now is definitely tell me by PM what this EMD is.. :p j/k

    is it a keyword that can easily be monetized? This is also important.

    I think he knew what "EMD" meant but was joking about trying to get the EMD from the OP. lol

    well it's a name of a person (historic figure) but I guess if you put up adsense it's gonna monetize anyways
    i'm not sure though if it's legal to own a site with someone's name ? :D e.g. barack-obama.com huh ?

    Remember that ADWORDS competition (which is what you get from Google Keyword Tool) is VERY different to SERP's competition. Adwords competition is a good thing if you want to monetize with Adsense.

    You need to find out the SERP's competition of this KW in order to know how tough it would be to rank for.

    Well you should ask yourself why does it have low competition if there are 2.3 million EXACT monthly searches? It probably means that the keyword in spite of it's search volume is for something that hardly anyone is interested in advertising in. While I find this hard to believe you've found such an EMD.... given that you have and they are exact monthly searches I'd probably still buy it. And yes, there is no longer any added benefit in SERPs for having an EMD but it nonetheless might be worth snatching up.

    I just saw that you said it's the name of a famous person.... careful with this one you could open yourself up to a potential lawsuit depending on how you use the domain.

    What is GKT?
    I googled and I didn't see anything on it.
    P.s. I don't care if "everyone knows" I am learning daily about IM.

    I believe you cannot have copyrights on a dead person unless someone owns their trademark. I'm not kidding... Levi Strauss is a good example.
