    Hi guys, I'm starting on IM and I'm basically following the Google Sniper Manual.

    I did the keyword research and I found a good keyword to promote an ebook...

    The first SEO thing that google sniper tells is about the domain name...
    The best thing is to get the keyword dot com or dot net or dot org... but unfortunatelly the three ones has already gotten...

    So, I have a question for you guys... my idea is to put a "the" before the keyword (like "site"), is it a good idea?? Like thekeyword.com
    How it affects on the SEO? is it better to put another word after the keyword? like keywordsite.com

    Wich one is better?

    Do you have another keyword to add in the main keyword that not affect so much on the SEO??

    The site that I'm going to do is about to promote a clickbank product.

    Thanks in advance.

    having your keyword in your title is not the be all or end all of SEO. It will give you a lil boost with regards a new site, but if you are doing all the other SEO parts correct it will not hold you back in the slightest. Just something to consider.

    If ever a domain name is taken that I am after, I always put the extra word at the end of the keyword for instance reviewkeyword.com or homekeyword.com.

    Is it better to use:
    -review-keyword.com
    -keyword-review.com
    -reviewkeyword.com
    -keywordreview.com

    Which one is better to use, or is it the same?

    Id say keyword-review.com

    as google sees the hyphen as a space, then that's the closet you can get to the search term 'keyword review'. Google does see the difference if even just two words are swaped round

    e.g

    Code:
    http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&source=hp&q=nice+tv&btnG=Google+Search&meta=&aq=f&oq=nice+tv&fp=c3c74e19c723def9
    Code:
    http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&safe=off&q=tv+nice&meta=&aq=f&oq=tv+nice&fp=c3c74e19c723def9
