    reverse spelling worth it?

    Hello to all.

    Say you wanted to have a webmaster forum site, and of course webmasterforums.com was taken.

    Could there be any benefit from trying to buy forumswebmaster.com?

    I am just curious as if a person was to add in those keywords if they would still come up and rank well?

    Thanks

    Chris

    It may be beneficial, but not much.
    Worth a try, though

    Make sure the domain is easy to remember, and easy to spell. And if you're relying on people to find it during searches, identifying key phrases will help.

    I would try to find some sort of abbreviated version or something different. Putting the words in reverse such as, forumswebmaster.com, doesn't make much sense. imo

    no its not worth it if you are looking for huge maount of money...as sombody said it will only fetch you 10-50$ on yearly bases.so dont go for reverse speelings or spellings with numbers.

    i don't think there is any benefit. You probably won't lose traffic to the reverse if your name is logical. search engines are getting smarter about phrasing so there seems to be no need to go with the reverse.

    This is a waste of time and resources. It's just like a place in Newzealand called Erehwon which is the reverse of nowhere.
