Interestingly and surprisingly to me, if you google my username "cybernesco" you will get over 1,250,000 hits.  With google.ca, the odd times it falls back to 160,000 hits, but less so with google.com.

Most of all links seem to be related to my photos and a minority to discussions I had in various forums. In 1999, I did coin the word, cybernesco, for the creation of a small personal website cybernesco.com. After a few months, in 2000, I got bored, deactivated the site and let the name registration expired. 

It is only in 2005, that I started to use that word again not for a site but as my username for all photo sites and forums. Recently, I noticed that by googling "cybernesco" I'll get over a million hits. Upon this discovery, I decided to try and register the domain name again so that maybe its popularity could be used for something.  Godaddy had the name listed as a premium name and wanted $250. Maybe it was registered by other sites before but was not too useful due to its attachment to photography and me.

I though about paying the $250, until I saw a deal with AEIOU.com.  By buying their cheap hosting service for a year for $119., they were giving a premium domain name hosted by Godaddy.. So I went that route and got the name registered. Now, I am trying to figure out what to do with it. I already have my microstock site selling photos at denispepin.com which I already spent money and time to get going.

Maybe, cybernesco.com could be something as simple as some of my thoughts about photography followed by links of independent websites among some of us. Could the popularity of the name be sufficient to get traffic and use the site as a hub for independent websites?

Maybe I am all wrong about this?  Maybe a million hits on a coined word nowadays mean nothing? Tell me what you think?

Add a reroute on the domain to your other website

I though about this, but I don't think Google ranking algorithm would like that.

Search results in Google don't really have any relation to how many people are searching for that term, it is just a show of how many web pages have that term on them.  Not saying it isn't wise to put cybernesco.com to use, just saying that a search result of 10,000 or 1,000,000,000 makes no difference in terms of market interest.  In terms of competition however, a lower search result would be better.

If you do put something on that domain it should rank pretty easily for that search - if there are indeed people searching for that term in the first place.

I agree that search results don't have any relation to how many people are searching for that term and it is a show of how many web pages that have that term, however, in most of those webpages, that term represent me as a microstock photographer. What I mean is, according to google analytics, I know that my site denispepin.com get visitors from people that have specifically search my name denis pepin probably because they have seen my name on microstock sites. Therefore, if they are people searching for denis pepin, could there be people searching for cybernesco as well? I probably will not know that, until I set up a site and check google analytics.

In term of competition, if I get a site named cybernesco.com and someone search cybernesco, cybernesco.com would come first among million results because google puts a priority on the domain name before anything else.  I think it looks better to be first among a million results than first among a few. 

Tyler, thanks for your response, I appreciate your time,

Denis

the name has nothing to do with photography in my mind, so anyone who came across you is unlikely to have arrived there searching for stock.

however, now you've registered it there's really only your time involved to test it out. go for it!

True the name has nothing to do with photography, but so is Getty, dreamstime, alamy, veer, 123rf, pond5, zoonar as well as many smaller sites.

My first photography site was called "UsefulImage.com" and although the name was highly appropriate, I am getting more traffic now with denispepin.com than I was getting with UsefulImage. This is probably due to the fact that for many years my name had already been out there associated with photography which gave a greater chance for someone to search for Denis Pepin, regarding photography,  than someone searching for an unknown coined word such as usefulimage.  I believe that there could be a similar and better association with cybernesco.  Better because it is a unique word combined with a greater association with photography.  And once I figure a theme, I will definitely test it out, Thanks vannphoto, by the way I like your port

why thank you. I have a tiny port compared to the greats here, but I'm trying to not upload junk just to pad it out, so it's slow going to get myself up there with the serious pros who just keep making great stuff. (I get most cross when DT does its "similars" thing at me, cos I already vett my uploads pretty heavily). 

what's the name of the corporation from the Terminator films? why do I think of that when I hear yours? it's def got a coolness to it.

and for the record, I hate the names: 123RF, how lazy is that name?? dreamstime is a bit of tragic jinglish, isn't it? Getty is a surname? (you can only name your business after your name if its cool, IMHO, which is why my disjointed dutch saffer surname doesn't get featured much, but I do use the "van" part). Don't get me started on Fotolia! (I hate that kind of thing, but that's the teacher-in-a-former-life in me peeking through.)

me, opinionated? nahhhhh :D

Thanks Phil..I did not know there was such a tool, I am so used to rely on Google analytics that I forgot about other tools out there. I did check it out and it is an average of 46 searches per month over a period of the last 12 months.Therefore, being an average, the number of searches could be greater now than it was a year ago. This number is just about what I expected. Although this is not mind blowing, to me that number is far more valuable than a 1000 visitors randomly landing on a site. It is something to build on.

Cyber Nesco, I don't get it? Maybe this is part of the reason for so many searches. So you are a Cyber Cooker?  :o

"Nesco" in the US is known as a kitchenware company, in Canada, it is a distributor of electrical conduits. In another country it is a tool manufacturing company. Therefore, "nesco" depending where you are from can have several meanings.

The combination of another word with nesco are many.  In the days that I was looking for a coined name with nesco, I had found companies with the following names: Danesco, Dynesco, Dylanesco, Dinesco, Banesco...and many others.  And they all have different purposes.

The name in question is not "Cyber Nesco" but "Cybernesco", it does make a big difference if you make a google search.  In addition, the best way to make a  google search to make sure that the word does not get separated is by inserting the word between quotes.  As an example, if you search datamatch without quotes you will get search results for datamatch and data match as opposed to if you insert it between quotes you will get results only for datamatch.

The google adwords keyword tool accounted searches for the word cybernesco not cyber nesco. As well interestingly, it gives a list of competitive keywords related to cybernesco, and they are all related to photography.  Thanks for your input RacePhoto

It was mostly in jest, but the explanation was interesting. I never knew there were so many other Nescos.

So what do you cook in a Cyber Nesco?  ;)

Here's the one you missed. The cooker company is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Those electric pans are all over the place. Like Kleenex, people here, throw something the the Nesco to keep it warm, or for serving or before their were slow cookers, it was done in a big old Nesco.

So there's the joke, in case it was too obscure.

The NESCO Roaster first made it's debut in the early 1930's, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, manufactured by the National Enameling and Stamping Company (NESCO). They were a longtime manufacturer of pots and pans, buckets, and other cooking and farm accessories in the growing agricultural state. It was about that time that a couple of their engineers were experimenting with electricity, as it was now available in Milwaukee. They took some wire, wrapped it around one of their double-boilers, plugged it in, and it got hot. An idea was born.

Nice going Denis. First one is IS, next your personal site, down the list is this thread.

May I ask is that you in the investment forum messages that pop up with your name? Is this you, or the place you asked about?  cybernesco.com: The Leading Cyber NESCO Site on the Net it's Cy Bernes Co which oddly spells the same thing when crunched together.

As well, I find the "National Enameling and Stamping Company" story very interesting. Thanks for sharing the story.  And yes I do participate in some of those investment forums.  Regarding cybernesco.com, it seems that for a short period of time, someone else had registered cybernesco.com for their own purpose, but somehow, maybe a year later, never renewed their registration. Although the name "cybernesco" could be a catchy name, Google has it tied up to over a million links leading to photography stuff of mine, therefore, this could be detrimental to anyone wanting to use it for something else. But even in photography, I guess that not too many would want to use a domain name that mostly lead to someone else, therefore, I guess, I am probably the only one that can use it.

Regarding the question of what can I cook in a Cyber Nesco?  How about an image out of this world:

Be friendly with earth

That was a hot one! Nice cookie shot.  ;)

Interesting how the name caught on and yes you do dominate the search for your name.

Web pages that have gone dormant have some strange habits. I remember searching for a new one last year and found all kinds of them parked and for sale. Yeah fine, choke on them you vultures. LOL When someone is asking $5000 for a parked name, I just went and hyphenated it, that works.

Last year I (finally) registered my own name. I guess before someone else gets it, I've been delaying that for what, about 14 years? And another one I mentioned while I was camping that cretin went home to Minnesota and registered it. Then it was dormant, then it was a gun site, then something else - dive shop and finally a country music festival. Fine, my fault for not claiming it.  8)

I don't know why GoDaddy would want to hang onto cybernesco it doesn't make any sense except to your persona and identity.
