    I'm wanting to snap up a domain name for a new concept product that is being talked about. The domain containing the keyword that I want is already taken (.com and .net), however, the plural .net version is available. Lets say the keyword I want is 'motorbike', how will google react if I register motorbikes.net, will it still see that as being relevant to a 'motorbike' search? I'll still be optimising my site for the 'motorbike' (singular) keyword as very few people search for the plural keyword.

    Thanks!

    The simple as is "yes", you should still get G love. I still like to check the stats on the G keyword tool just to see.

    Well I have checked keyword tool and 'not enough data' comes up when I type in the plural keyword, which is fine cos I'll be SEOing my site for the singular version, the only thing that will be plural is the domain name, and even still the singular should still be 'captured' by virtue, i.e. 'motorbike(s)'. Thats my logic on it anyway. And does google discriminate against .net in comparison with .com?

    How about hyphens? I can get a domain in singular but the two words are hyphenated, how would G see this?
