    Hi guys,
    I?m feeling good today. So, thought to share something for the community.
    May be some of you are using it already. It?s just using the synonyms in domain name when EMD is not available.
    A month before, I got good keyword but EMD was taken. .com, .net, .org all were taken. So, I thought go for ?key-word.com? (with hyphens). I had some hard time ranking domains with hyphens before, so, I bought domain with synonym. It ranked amazingly well. So, I thought share it with you guys along with some tips.
    Let?s say you want to register a domain for ?iphone 4 unlock?, but all major extensions are not available. So, go for synonym.
    Register the domain ?iphonefourunlock.com?.
    It is not as good as iphone4unlock.com but, better than domain with hyphens (IMHO).
    Search for ?iphone 4? and ?iphone four? . See the images.

    You can see that in second image the search term is ?iphone four? but still ?4? is bolded in the result.
    I don?t know whether its working for text synonyms like (lawyer=attorney). But it works well for number synonyms. So, you can this for windows 8, harrypotter 7, iphone 5 and etc.

    Once again they are not as good as EMD, but they are better than hyphen domains and stop word domains, from my experience.

    It's still an EMD, if people search for 'iphone four unlock'.

    As mentioned it is an EMD for the "iphone four" so I dont see anything new here ? now compare the search volumes for "4" and "four" if its even worth it. You can do that for all searches but most likely the real version using a # will be better off so nothing hot here

    I think i didnt make it clear. No one searches "iphone four". I said register the domain iphonefour.com and build the links for "iphone 4"..

    No! There are people out there who prefer typing number in letters while searching, but I get your point.

    I'm curious as well as it seems Google does take into account synonyms when calculating searches. I'm curious if it is possible to rank a domain that is using a synonym for the targeted search.

    I can't find much info on this but I'm about to test the waters out myself as I have some ideas on the subject.
