    I know that using the keywords "Internet Marketing" in a domain name has a much better SEO effect than using "IM".

    But "IM" is much shorter and it make the domain seem like less spammy.

    Which one is better?
    Guys, i want to hear your opinion.

    If you want more keyword targeted visitors, I think "Internet Marketing" is the way to go.

    "IM" is a well known term among internet marketers. However, when the average joe is looking for a work-at-home opportunity, he/she is more likely to type "Internet Marketing" in Google.

    Exactly. In fact, to most people, "IM" means "Instant Message" or "Instant Messenger". So, it's probably not a good idea to use it. In fact, even internet marketers are more likely to type Internet Marketing in Google, rather than IM.

    My main business domain is FirstStopIM.com

    Plus for some strange reason even though i don't own firststopinternetmarketing.com it seems to redirect to my site (at least on my pc).

    I don't think it really makes a difference but a lot of internet marketing domains are already taken.
