    Hello everyone. Im doing an amazon project/website and have been doing a lot of keyword research for my niche. I have currently found 7 excellent keywords. Now that I have my keywords I am trying to come up with a good domain name. How relevant should my domain name be to these keywords?

    Out of my 7 keywords (google searches), there is 2 words that appear in 6 of the 7 keywords (searches). My question is, do I use both of these keywords in my domain? Or just use one to keep the domain short?

    For example, lets say word 1 is XXXX and word 2 is YYYY. Should I try something like XXXX-YYYY.com? Or zzzXXXX-YYY.com? Or should I try and avoid dashes and try and make the domain as short as possible?


    Oh and I ask this question for best SEO ranking results.

    -Thanks

    Plus with a short name you can also create a brand profile using the URL name!

    No dashes. Two words is fine, but try to get them in natural order furrycats > catsfurry (there are some exceptions to this).
