    Alright, I have decided to possibly shoot myself in the foot and dive into a competitive niche.. I plan on ranking for long tail keywords which puts me in a bit of a bind when choosing my domain.

    I purchased a 90k exact search emd - four words long. However, I probably would never rank for this term even with an emd.. But I guess you never know with emd's. This emd is not as relevant as the one below.

    I also purchased an 18k exact search very relevant emd - 3 words long.. Probably would not be able to rank for this term, but again, you never know.

    That being said, both domains kinda suck in terms of being brandable. They are relevant. So, my question is, should I just go with a brandable domain name or go for the emd? If so, which would you go with?

    I hope you mean 90K and 18K exact search and not $.

    Good luck

    You should go with EMDs but you have to be very serious about linkbuilding on the long run if you want to have success with these websites. GL.
