    Going to be selling a clickbank product in a niche I found


    Home page keyword/name of site based on keyword = 5 words "how to "blank" "blank" "blank") ex "how to create a website"

    Would you name your site (using example):

    "how-to-create-a-website" (full keyphrase, EMD) (i believe exact keywords in domain still help a tiny bit over non keyword domains) (but its 5 words which is long)

    "2createawebsite" (no hyphens but has a number in it then words) (partial keywords in domain) (if you remove the "2" from the url a competitive site exists)

    "create-a-website" (all words, shorter but domain "createawebsite" also exists)

    TBH I am leaning towards "how-to-create-a-website" but I am just fearing it either looks spammy or is too long

    2createawebsite is okay I guess, but I am worried people might forget the "2" and get directed to the competitions site

    Hi,

    Would recommend create a partial match and brandable domain name instead, if you are looking for long term ranking.

    Otherwise, just grab an EMD.

    That's what he ment. So you might want to look into a brandable domain instead of an EMD.
    +1 for a brand instead.

    You can use EMD for short term (churn and burn) but use brandable domain for long term.

    Cheers

    I understand but at the same time I dont. If you are getting short term succes via EMD I dont see why it wouldnt last, if it otherwise would via a brandable? Content and trust is what would bring people back, not brandable names.

    I want the site to "last" but I also dont plan on putting my blood sweat and tears into it. Its more or less a topic that im well versed in with low competition, and sole purpose is for clickbank.

    I have a couple different websites now and honestly the domains with a partial match emd are doing the best seo wise, not to mention easier to remember.

    That could be due to anything though. Your probably putting more effort into the brandables.

    basically im just wondering opinions:

    would you guys rather click: how-to-create-a-website or 2createawebsite and which are you more prone to remember

    I would follow suggestions with the posters above me, go for partial match. You'll be better off in the long run.

    Yes, a domain with four dashes looks super spammy. Go with your instincts.

    Home Page:
    There is already a massive site based upon the 'com' extension.
    I would suggest going to www.char5.com and picking the catchiest 5 character domain name.
