    And someone already registered your perfect 3 word domain name at .com, what would you do?
    My thoughts on choices-
    -try to buy it from them
    -www.word1word2word3.net
    -www.wrd1(remove vowels in word1)word2word3.com

    would shortening the first word damage your seo performance? Like nobody would type the first word in the shortened way into google, but if they read it then they would understand.

    -www.word1word2word3.info

    What would you guys recommend for me? What would you do? thanks for advice!

    EDIT: the domain is registered, but there is no website for it. I don't want to warn the owner of the potential by offering to buy it, any ideas?

    How about something like getword1word2word3.com or buyword1word2word3.com. You would still be able to get the seo benefits from a keyword rich domain and have a .com.

    Interesting, but it can't really apply to the url in mind.
    However that got me thinking about prefixes. I'll look into some potential ones. Thanks!

    Also, what would you guys do with respect to the following-

    the third word can commonly be/ will commonly be searched for
    "word1 word2 word3"
    and
    "word1 word2 word3s"

    However the nice clean .com for both are registered...
    But .net for both are not.

    Do you think it is a good idea for me to get both of those -
    word1word2word3.net
    word1word2word3s.net
    and just put a page saying "You have misstyped our domain!" And link to the main domain, that way someone can't steal my idea later. Also which would you use as the primary url of those 2?

    try adding a prefix or a suffix to your domain. Don't buy it off someone else..

    instead of saying you have mistyped our domain, have a permanent redirect to it?

    who gives a shit if it's attractive. it's the 2nd best thing to word1word2word3.com. It's literally the exact same power, and does everything the exact same. Some people would say they like the dashes more.

    Yea but then that brings up more potential competitors,
    word1-word2-word3
    word1word2-word3
    word1-word2word3
    word1-word2-word3s
    word1word2-word3s
    word1-word2word3s
    Now I'm not saying you are wrong, but won't that mean that all of those will have the same power?

    They would have all been competitors in the first place. What you're saying isn't logical. Why would you pass up the most powerful option because of competitors... There's going to be competitors in any domain name you choose.

    True, I was just kinda arguing with myself without putting bounds on logic...
    aaanyways, one more thing:

    Assuming a user types my keywords into google, and I am first result (I can do good seo, and there are NO relevant results now), and life is good for me.
    Now assume the original owner of name1name2name3.com comes along and tries to compete with me, what would look better for me, to the searcher: ex
    Case1- I choose "nam1-name2-name3.com"
    Person sees in google:
    [first result]name1-name2-name3.com
    Description
    [second result]name1name2name3.com
    Description

    or
    Case2- I choose "name1name2name3.net"
    Person sees in google:
    [first result]name1name2name3.net
    Description
    [second result]name1name2name3.com
    Description

    In which case would the user be more likely to click my url over the competitors? Factors to consider-
    -I have better description, backling age
    -the domain with "dashes" looks(to me) like a copy of the second result, so I would personally click the second result
    -the domain with .net seems (to me) more authentic, so I would click it

    Is this how most people would think? Or is that just how I think because I am overthinking?

    So what do you think would be best for me, Case1 or Case2. I am just trying to think of possible ways my authority could be undermined in the future, and to make the best choice to stay number 1 if the original person tries...

    so what would you do, given this?
    thanks for your replies!!

    EDIT: I am considering a prefix, but that would make it a 4 word domain, isn't that not as optimal as a 3 word one?

    Most people won't differentiate between word1-word2-word3.com and word1word2word3.com. I don't know why you are but really it makes almost no difference.

    I am currently doing great with a word1-word2-word3.com exactly with word1word2word3.com and .net on #2 and #3 positions behind me.

    Just trying to think of all the bases, and nice job btw!
    After all considerations I think I'll just go with the dashes, with the plural extension redirecting to me.

    black hat world -
    ditto
    dashes are not a problem
    you can add prefix or suffix.
    but you can not run away from competition.
    here comes bhw knowledge.. use it ....and win competition.


    but i have one question...

    1) i buy a domain... with some keywords its main domain
    2) i buy another domain with related keywords and i i do 301 redirect.
    what is the use?

    i dont understand sine this second domain is not having any content and is redirected then how come this domain is going to be indexed or ranked in serp?

    do we build backlinks for this second domain.?
    or we create a small blog and then redirect it...?
