What is a "brandable" domain name?
The definition for a brand name is sometimes related to non-keyword domain names that have no specific meaning, yet are short and easy to remember. Sometimes keyword related domains also make a stand like 'Startbrand'. Whilst not all names have a direct description to the company or product, instead they influence qualities that are important to your business.
Popular brands like Apple, Google, Facebook etc are recognized by their name. Whilst Mobilephones, Searchengine and Socialmedia have a more broad desscription.
When branding remember a brand starts with a memorable name, but the brand will become popular overtime and with marketing, therefore search engines prefer keywords to brand names. Afterall a brand name is unique and new to you whilst a keyword has been searched for a hundred times over or thousands of times in some cases. Therefore in SEO terms your domain will rank quicker if it is keyword related.
