    hi guys
    I want to register a domain. Imagine its "Medical office supplies"

    medicalofficesupplies .com .net .org .us and .info are taken

    what is the next step? do I add "American" at the beginning, like "american medical office supplies" ?
    or maybe "quality medical office supplies .com"
    or maybe add an X, like medical office suppliesX.com
    since the keyword is already so long, adding anything else to it will make it ridiculously long. what do i do?

    Long domain names can be tricky for direct traffic and difficult even for search engines. Try making the domain simple, catchy and descriptive enough with at least one keyword for which you are ranking for.

    If you care about branding and repeat business at all, forget about keywords in domain. They don't matter enough for ranking to take away from the user experience.

    Try to use topmedicalofficesupplies or bestmedicalofficesupplies
    Just add 3-4 letter word in front of it.
