    I'm looking to build an amazon Affiliates review site and the domain name for my website .com .net and .org have been taken and no sites built on them.

    Here is where I want some advice.

    My keyword is, for example (not actually mine): Best Football Players (2000 searches)
    The keyword (without the S): Best Football Player (10 Searches)

    BestFootballPlayers.com (taken) (with no website)
    BestFootballPlayer.com (available)

    Should I get the domain BestFootballPlayer even though it lacks the "s" at the end of my keyword? Will this damage my positioning, even though I know exact match domains don't have much benefit, it's good to have them?

    You'll be fine without the 's'. You will still rank with keywords that are in relation to your domain. You'll rank for what you're targeting. I would say snag that domain before someone else here does. Also, for future reference, don't list your domains here, even if you haven't bought them yet.

    A few things:

    - Don't post your domains/keywords here. People might steal them, etc.
    - Make the domain memorable, but don't spend too much time on it (you can use agile domain search to find a name easily)
    - Pick low comp, buying keywords when working with Amazon. Someone searching for "best football player" probably isn't interested in buying anything (you could sell them related merch, but it probably wouldn't convert very well), but someone searching "best football gear" is probably interested in buying something and is more likely to convert.

    To learn more about Amazon affiliates, etc. I recommend you check out Tom's guide.

    Way to take action though. Best of luck.

    From my experience its not as good as with the "s" especially when ranking for Bing which still favors EMD a little.


    Its still good tho.
