    Months ago, I created an 8-letter memorable domain name (for the sake of my question, let's call it "BearBread" - I know one letter more) and purchased it. As you can see, I totally forgot about how important it is to include the keyword (again, for the sake of the question, let's say it's "natural ingredients") inside the domain. But I really want to keep "BearBread" and use it.

    In terms of SEO and easily ranking for that keyword, what if I add "BearBread" as a prefix to the targeted "natural ingredients" keyword - bearbreadnaturalingredients.com, would that be good or bad? And no, I can't get the "natural ingredients" as the domain by itself because it is already taken.

    Now, eventually folks will just call it BearBread and possibly search for it in the Big G after trying BearBread.com and finding nothing. Would it be a great idea to redirect any traffic from that domain to the bearbreadnaturalingredients.com? Then, once the keyword-focused domain gains a lot of traffic, would it be good or bad to move the site over to bearbread.com? Basically, go the easier route to rank and then swap shoes.
