    Going to start a new site and thinking about how to best position it domain-wise:

    My options are like
    clickxxxx
    linkxxxx
    seoxxxx
    where xxxx= something generic, but catchy, like 'blue'

    while i know the importance of putting a kw in the domain name, i'm wondering if it is better to focus on a brand rather than worrying about getting 'seo' in the name.

    i'm thinking that with something original, it is much easier to get to top 3 than if i'm fighting it out with thousands of other seoxxxx.com's

    i've been able to rank sites that are emd and non-emd for niches like hotels and dating, and i don't see a great deal of difference. i may also try doing more offline promo with the business, and i'm thinking it may evolve into not just seo services, but building sites, etc...so again, wondering if trying to get 'seo' in the name is worthwhile.

    your thoughts?

    Best to 'BUMP' the old thread instead of creating a duplicate

    Why don't you buy a domain without SEO in it? Its better to have your brand name and promote it.
