I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably can answer it..
Thanks for the reply!.
What I mean is I have been able to find .com-names that.
The names of certain product types or product categories that several and even many manufacturers within industry sectors have. I have known some of these for some time and surprisingly I still find 2-word names that havent been regged. And this for markets that deal with millions.

Estibot shows (at the same time, what you may see on overturekeyword.com and allintitle"" on google), the ratio between the existing number of titles (pages) and number of searches.

But since yahoo more shows results with urls that match the search word, you get a forerun when having HostGator names that exactly match popular search phrases..

I've done my share of regging silly names, but hopefully not so much anymore..
One thing you might want to add to your strategy is using the 4-day grace period to your advantage and keeping the names that have traffic and reconsidering those that do not...
