    Okay, so I found a niche I would like to base a site on, the domains DOTnet, DOTorg, and even the dashes-com option are all bought.

    DOTcom is bought but parked. I emailed the owner asking for a price and never received a response! I would really would like the DOTcom, but I don't know how to get it. I feel if I make another attempt using a middleman or if I try calling him he's just going to rocket up the price. Which sucks cause I have a feeling he's not going to do anything with the domain.

    DOTco is available, does anyone know if DOTco is given a exact match bonus? Can you even rank a DOTco for a health niche site? I hear hype about them, but I'm pretty sure that's all it is. I could be wrong though.

    So, need a little guidance here. Kinda stuck about what I should do at the moment. Thanks in advance!

    try to add another word like keyword-review com or keyword-something-pics com.. get creative it doesnt matter if your domain is longer than you wanted. i did this a few months ago and ended up with a longer domain than i really wanted but my keyword is in there and im ranking on page one.

    I would agree with the post bove, try different variations of the word you want, adding other words in from or back. I've not had much like getting parked domains because most of the time, they are bought in bulk as expired domains and the email address they have listed as the contact is a gmail or yahoo account thet they only check once every couple of months. It never ceases to amaze me how many great niche keywod domains are bought up and never used then they expire a year later.
