    Umm.. does it really matter? Just google for different suffixes and see what sounds good/fits. For me, the shorter the better.

    -place -online -now -spot -ster -aholic -dev -lab -matic -space

    You can come up with a lot more.

    I normally use the word "tips" at the end of the domain if the main keyword is already taken. You can also try to use "best" at the beginning of your domain. The reason is because people are looking for good information related to their search.

    info, guide, etc. can be good if it's an information site.

    the, i or e, as a prefix can work as well.

    This dont have a exact answer,some people will say after others before.

    I have personally been told on several occasions it's best to have your KW phrase in the URL first. As far as what goes after... does not matter. I mean if your selling physical products you could always end with "depot". "Express" is another personal favorite.

    All depends on what you like and what obviously makes sense.

    Had some luck with "review" and "u" (as in university) as suffix. I suppose "clone" might not get good reviews.

    I agree. I almost always go with suffixes over prefixes. And like fanthomas said powerful words work really well. Like king, pro, etc.

    shorter the better to keep your URL length short I believe this is one of the many factors for SEO...
