    How important is an EMD in terms of SEO? What if the EMD is not available with .com, .net, .org or .info? What about an EMD with hyphen?

    Which one would you choose?
    keyword.biz
    key-word.info
    nonemd.com

    Exact local searches: 2400
    Adwords competition: High
    SERPs competition: Relatively easy
    CPC: $3+

    Would be great if all questions can be answered.

    I would have a look at your competition, use the keyword research guide on the white hat section then run through your top 10 competitors and find out how hard it will be to rank, if you think having an EMD is necesarry then go for it if not then there's no need. Remember, you will likely have your keyword in your URL, just maybe not before the TLD e.g. blahblah.com/keyword

    What is the exact local monthly searches, CPC and SERPs competition of your keyword.biz?
