    If I can't get the (exact keyword).com

    Should I go for a .net .org or should I add to the (exact keyword).com

    if your keyword is "lovely pairs of socks" you can rank just as well with:
    lovelypairofsocks.com
    lovelypairsofsock.com
    lovelypairssocks.com
    somelovelypairsofsocks.com

    also check the recommendations from Godaddy.

    if the exact match domain is one of those bought domains that has nothing on it, most def go for the .net or .org, if it does have content then add to the keyword...just my 2 cents!:peace:

    Just add a word to the exact match term you want in the domain---'best winter lodges' instead of 'winter lodges' or whatever addition that opens up an available .com/net/org. People will get to your site who are looking for the base term.

    .net .org and even .info are acceptable.

    I have been told use a .com then .net is second best and .org third but if you can't find one of them use a x at the end like dentalinsurancex.com

    as long as all of the words are in the domain name, you're golden. After that, what's really important is the link building and proper anchor text. :)
