    Hey!

    Let's say I have the long tail keyword: "earn money online no risk to lose" that I want to rank on.

    For this im going to create a mini site. Now I can eighter do a generic domain and create an inner page for the longtail, och choose an EMD.

    My question is, will the EMD be to long?

    Examples:

    Onlinemoneymaking.com/earn-money-online-no-risk-to-lose
    OR
    earnmoneyonlinenorisktolose.com

    What do you think?

    Let's discuss!

    I'm not sure if exact match domain works like before but I won't advice you to use long exact match domain as it's might looks spammy.

    I would go with the first example. I prefer brandable names over KW stuffed.

    Okey, thanks for your replies :) The reason why I'm asking is because I have a few EMD's that rank extremely well, however, they all have shorter domain names. Since this is going to be a mini site only targeting one long tail keyword, would you still use example number 2?

    The second one is an example of a EMD domain, the first one is not. If you are looking for an EMD then go with the first one.

    Yeah of course, the question is not what is and EMD, it's which of the 2 examples would you choose, and why?

    I do prefer with you for the first example. You can make it good while Putting good CTA Images on landing pages target to EMD domain. You will get Good result and use some professional fonts and images tags and testimonial. This will work for you. Rather depend on you about your work :) :driver: Cheers :)
