    Thanks KayTee

    To make it more niche would I just make sub domains with the key word infront of the domain ?

    Would the search engines like this ?

    Recommend you use the search button since there are a lot of good threads on this topic. That said go with the domain name that matches best to the keywords. There are no penalties for hyphens but you might want to choose a cleaner domain name, no hyphens or numbers, for branding purposes.

    Sub domains are harder to rank , use main 1 domain only

    Not a very good idea as search engines wouldn't give more value to the subdomains. I personally don't like domains that end with 1 so I'd recommend the second choice or another domain with some other prefix or suffix.
