  1. Keyword Research, does the domain get a significant number of global monthly demand and have a limited number of search engine results.
  2. Top Level, choose a top level domain (.com preferably), and hosted in the United States.
  3. Used URL’s, check the search engines to see if the domain you are thinking of using has any links indexed and run it through the Wayback Machine to make sure there are no previous associations with pornography, hate or violence, or negative back links attached to it.
  4. Black Listed, make sure the domain you are about to purchase is not black listed at http://www.moensted.dk/spam/
