    Just looking for your opinion...

    Lets say there is a very competitive keyword you 100% have to rank for however the usual .com,.net,.org domains are all taken. Also the #1 position you are trying to outrank is the "keyword.com" EMD.

    You have 3 choices..

    1)buy the ".co" domain (available)

    2)buy the ".biz" domain (available)

    3)take an another authority domain of yours and just put the keyword in the url


    what would you do or do you have any other ideas?

    Your best bet is to go for the dashed (-) versions. These are quite possibly available and it´s very doable to rank for them.

    Edit: Jokers was one second faster than me.

    or if hyphens / dashes are taken just add the word review to your keyword;) in order to get the .com .net or .org extensions

    You can still rank without the keywords in the title - Just make sure you look at the stats of the competitors in Market Sam.. and do what they are NOT doing or do more of it.

    We are second behind a competitor with keyword.com and we are notthekeywordatall.com just some good on page... and ofcourse depending on size of your niche.
