ok i've read a lot on this forum and i have to say thanks! i'm actually making money online not a lot... not enough but it's still something... i now want to create a micro-niche single purpose website but the EMD.com/org/net is already taken. A lot of people say that a .us domain isn't going to rank well enough as a TLD but since my main target is US isn't that good ? Also if my targeted keyword is the plural of a word ... will i still be able to rank as well with a domain that uses the singular of the word ? example: cool shoes - keyword and coolshoe.com domain ? also for the keyword i'm targeting there 90.500 [6.600 exact and for US there are only 720] monthly global searches and for the singular keyword there are only 40.500 [210 exact for US only 22] do you think it's worth trying to rank something like this and when people search for cool shoes will my domain be eligible for that search ?
