    Lots of people have recommended #2, but perhaps a better example would be "places to go see", so would #2 as placetogosee.com still be good?

    So I want to create a site search optimized for a 4 word name. Of course, the best domains are taken so I have three options, I will use the example "shops in the store"

    #1. Take a strange extension: shopsinthestore.me,.co

    #2. Take shopinthestore.com, but without the pluralized s at the start. Note* everyone who searches uses the pluralized s as their google type-in.

    #3. Take a wierd combination which would be like shops-inthestore.com

    #4. Take a 5th: shopsinthestore#.

    I'd really like to make an authority site that focuses on long-tail word after the extension, for example targeting shopsinthestoreHere and shopsinthestoreNOW.

    I'm really torn on what to do, I'm leaning towards 1 or 2. I'd like to do #2 simple because the .com with no dashes makes it look the most legit, but almost all the used search terms have the s as part of the first keywords. HELP (does anyone know how important pluralized/singular differences on in terms of search?)

    I'll choose domain #2 as your say it's more legit.. but don't forget use word "SHOPS" in website title, because it's your targeted keyword.

    Search "shops" in google(US).. look at the #1 & #2 position.

    Results:

    #1 shophousingworks (dot) com
    #2 mauidiveshop (dot) com

    So, it's doesn't matter if u take domain #2 even though these domains do not include 's'.

    You go for shopinthestore.com Plurals wont make sense in terms of google.

    All the best.

    Hey, why not do them all? Gives you much more coverage and domains are not that expensive!
