    Hi friends,

    I have a problem regarding to buy a domain.
    This domain for premium wordpress template site. So i try to buy a domain looks premium name.
    For example think my first target keyword is : wordpress templates
    Then, i can go for domain something like wordpresstemplates1234.com or 1234wordpresstemplates.com (for example).
    But Templates1234.com or 1234templates.com looks like premium or brand name.

    So question is,
    Is it good to go for Templates1234.com or 1234templates.com ? without using wordpress keyword?
    Because i try to get a short and memorable name. I have seen more site which are ranking their top keywords even they don't have in their keyword in domain name.

    What is the better option. Go for long character domain name with keyword or short name with premium look?

    Thanks you...

    Go for short name. Domain name is not important. Keywords help us to rank in any niche.

    Short name. The name isn't that important IMO

    In your example you wouldn't be able to use the WordPress name anyway, they have strict rules. Before I get shouted down, I know this is an example

    In this case, use short name WP instead wordpress is reasonable, and add sth you like, e.g, godamnWPtheme.com or like that, good luck.
