    Hi,

    I have a dilemma

    Lets say my main keyword is blue box
    sub keywords are blue car, blue computer, blue chair, blue webcam , etc

    in all my posts i want the keyword in the url

    should i register a domainname like www.bluebox.com and have subpages like www.bluebox.com/bluecar OR

    should i register a domainname like www.colouredbox.com and have subpages like www.colouredbox.com/bluecar

    The point is when i use blue in my domainname and in all my post urls im not sure if im overdoing it?

    Second option will be good from brand point of view.

    First option is good from SEO point of view.

    choose yourself. I will go with second.

    Definitely go with the second option.

    You don't want to over optimize and plus "colouredbox.com" would be a more brandable domain.

    For example, my keywords could be wireless headphones, wireless games, wireless hdmi, wireless routers

    Instead of using "wirelessheadphones.com" and then branching off, I could use something like "handsfreedevices.com"

    Probably not the best example, but you should get it.

    Why is the first one better for SEO???? Two times word "blue" in URL of the page... Second option is better and as a brand name and for SEO (because he doesn't be affraid of over optimization)...

    If this is long-term > second option.
    Otherwise, the first option will make it easier for you to rank it quickly (short term)

    I think first option is better both in term of brand and also for SEO. Bluebox sounds better as compared to colouredbox in terms of brand image. i will go for the first option. I will not bother even if I am overdoing with the word blue.

    The first one sounds like a better Brand to me than the second.
    But the second seems like you could go broader.

    I would go for the second option, would look a lot more legit.
