    We are trying to pick a domain for our adult/sex shop. We are wondering the following:

    What are the potential positive and negatives (opinions and facts about SEO, etc) of having the term ?sex shop? added into the domain like this - ********sexshop.com? (* = two 4 letter words)

    What about the length of the domain? is shorter better? This question is also in reference to whether adding ?sexshop? to the name makes it too long?

    Is labeling that we are a sex shop the smarter thing to do? Or is it not needed to let people know what we sell in the domain?

    Does being an adult/sex shop already put you in an adult category with google/filtered out with safe search even if it doesn?t have adult keywords like ?sex? in the domain name? Or does that only happen when adult keywords are put in the domain?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why would you put sexshop in the domain? Google doesn't give huge benefits to EMDs anymore and you're not the first person to think of adding sexshop to the domain, so there are already millions of domains competing for that term.

    Short is better, ********sexshop.com is going to be a bitch to run AdWords campaigns for. get a brandable domain, that's short and memorable. Search expireddomains.net You can get something a women's name or something a bit abstract, they're easy to find and look much nicer.

    Don't even think about getting put into Google's adult category. There is noting you can do about it and all your competition is there.

    To be honest, the domain doesn't mean shit. The things that matter are content, product quality, price, service, how long shipping takes ect...
