    Hi BHW members. This newbie needs a little help, hope you will help me as you did before :)

    Suppose my niche is How to improve eyesight naturally ok

    Now there are two choices of domains for me

    1-) howtoimproveeyesightnatuallyguide (i think this is quite long)
    2-) improveeyesightguide (Will it catch the traffic from the keyword how to improve eyesight naturally? Will google see my URL as keyword optimized keeping in mind my keyword is how to improve eyesight naturally )

    One thing more. How many keywords should i target? I dont have long tail keywords(because many of the other keywords are having low searches). So i targetted 2 keywords. Keyword A and Keyword B. I want to rank on google on keyword A so should i only use keyword A on my articles and titles or should i also use other keywords?

    Please help :)

    improveeyesightnatuallyguide <-- this looks good when compare to the first one. The first one as you said is very long. It's not mandatory to have the exact keywords in domain for ranking, but it still helps you.

    So you are targeting two keywords here. Are they similar with slight variation or two different keywords? What about the search volume for that two keywords.

    They are same with little variation.
    Keyword A having about 4400 and 390 (very easy to rank on page one)
    Keyword B having 14000 and 4000 (hard to rank on google page one)

    What type of variation it is? The local search volume for keyword A is very low and the search volume for keyword B is good, but you said it is hard to rank.

    If keyword B is just same as like Keyword A with additional words at the end, you can target both in a single article, but think about the competition. Just go for it ONLY if you are confident in ranking the site.

    Its is like this .

    Keyword A :- how to improve eyesight (Hard to Rank There is also Wikihow in the 1st page)
    Keyword B :- how to improve eyesight naturally (easy to rank with 2 PR 0 websites)

    Variation is this much.

    My guess is correct so you can consider what I said, but hey if you are planning to go with keyword A do not spend your money & time, if you are not confident in ranking part. For keyword B, see the local search count( I believe you are targeting US). It is just 390 so not worth to try. What do you say?

    Keyword A is not hard to rank. Rank 1 has optimized for "tips to improve eyesights". Rank 2 has optimized for "how to improve eyesight without surgery".

    Keyword B is actually harder to rank than Keyword A as there are more optimized sites for that term, even if it has a lot less searches.

    In this niche i would have looked at "improve eyesight" (very easy to rank) as secondary and keyword A. (I don't have time to do a deep search though). "Eye test" is also worth a look along with "opthamologist"(rank 4 should be easy, rank 3 possible and the above hard).

    One small thing to think about is the CPC value that are very low in this niche, but maybe you are looking for domains for CPA? (I have a feeling that there is a lot of cpa offers in this niche?)

    choose the second one.
    The short domain is always better.

    Thank you guys. I feel much more comfortable now.

    Guys what do you see as competition analysis ? I mean how you judge the first 10 results?
