    I need a little advice on choosing the correct domain name.

    I'm going for a keyword phrase with 3 words, the first 2 words are normally spelt together. Example keyword, not mine: locksmith lessons

    If I search google with quotes I get:

    Showing results for "locksmith lessons". Search instead for "lock smith lessons".

    Global searches for G keyword tool:

    locksmith lessons: 49,500

    [locksmith lessons] 6,600

    lock smith lessons 60,500

    [lock smith lessons] 880

    All TLDs for locksmithlessons and locksmith-lessons gone, but lock-smith-lessons.com is not.

    What do you think, I should do?

    get lock-smith-lessons.com and try and rank for "lock smith lessons"

    get lock-smith-lessons.com and try and rank for "locksmith lessons"

    get locksmithlessons2k.com and try and rank for "locksmith lessons"

    Any thoughts would be great.

    Also does this look too difficult? I plan on spending some time writing around 60 articles for the site before starting to backlink.

    locksmith-lessons.com is available but I don't like.
    If I were you I would even consider a singular option -->
    com is not available but .net is still there - locksmithlesson.net
    But overall I think lock-smith-lessons.com is the way to go [out of what's available].

    Out of the given choices I would choose
    because of this:
    [locksmith lessons] 6,600

    also, could you tell the average cpc your keyword has? Just out of curiousity because I'd like to know what people here think is a valuable keyword


    lock-smith-lessons,cØm may be available, but the hyphens suggest they are 3 words, which doesn't fit the most exact searches. Also, some people claim google thinks too many hyphens in url equals spam potential. (I wouldn't agree at 2 hyphens yet)
