    I have a stupid question here

    Should I go for a domain name like "OnlineInvestments" or "OnlineInvestment" ?

    This is just an example though, just wonderwing what would be best for SEO and in general? Or maybe it doesn't matter? What do you guys think?

    well you should better do a keyword research before you choose a domian
    you might find an available domian that his exact phrase has high exact search volume

    If your keyword is "Online investment" and if the domain onlineinvestment.com or .net is available then get it. If not then try to get onlineinvestments or online-investment

    I think that the plural of the word is not a big concern the "OnlineInvestment" itself is a nice keyword, either plural or singular this will put you on on the top of Google.

    The plural or singular of it, is only a concern if the the service to there you'll be offering is just one, so coherently, this makes more sense being in singular. Otherwise, offering lots of services make more sense in plural.

    OK,

    But WHAT if both domain names OnlineInvestment and OnlineInvestments are occupied

    Do you think it is a good idea to go for BestOnlineInvestment as this one is still available?

    I'm talking for SEO, and I want to rank high on Google for OnlineInvestment(s)

    If you have to add a word to OnlineInvestment then be sure it's an EMD for a decent number of searches per month.

    Have you already bought all these domains?? And are just deciding which one to use? Looks like.

    My problem is that all the names I choose are already taken. :(

    SEO point of view .com also best because it's easy to remember that's reasons traffic always high. You should be check both in .com domain and just take it. Both are giving you best traffic. Online- Investment, Online- Investments both are good because Google also crawl "-".

    Lets say both domain names are occupied,

    What would be a better choice? BestOnlineInvestment ? Although nobody writes "Best Online Investment" in Google they will just write "Online Investment"

    Its hard to find a EMD for these type of niches because all domains are taken

    It doesn't matter really, you can still rank with those extra prefix.

    As noted earlier, keyword research is basic for this. This way, you may end with a good EMD that you wouldn't have thought of any other way.
