    Is it ok to have my business abbreviation before my keyworded domain? Ex: FSLmynichdomain (FSL is my YouTube and Brand). Will this effect anything, or should I have the keywords and the branding at the end? Thoughts and opinions.

    Thanks in advance!
    Ben

    There used to be a right answer to this back when all the exact match domain jazz was in place. However, now I'd pay more attention to how long you're making that domain than fitting the exact keyword in the domain itself.

    no, just choose the Exact Match Domain against your keyword - dont try to put your company (or brand name) in domain name - otherwise it will hurt your domain name ranking from SEO prespective.

    Has no bearing on overall impact, go with what is most natural looking

    No not an Issue if you choose domain which has your company name, but it will be more beneficial if you choose the domain which include your targeted keyword in your domain. But I suggest you one thing make your domain as short as possible and also make it natural looking domain.

    Domain Factors:




    1. Domain Age:
    Matt Cutts states that: "the difference between a domain that's six months old verses one year ols is really not that big at all". In other words, they do use domain age... but it's not very important.


    2. Keyword Appears in Top Level Domain:
    Doesn't give the boost that is used to but having your keyword in the domain still acts as relevancy signal.


    3. Keyword as First Word in Domain
    SEOMoz's 2011 Search Engine Ranking Factors panelists agreed that a domain that starts with their target keyword has an edge over sites that either don't have the keyword in their domain or have the keyword in the middle or end of their domain.


    4. Domain Registration length:
    A Google patent states: "Valuable domains are often paid for several years in advance, while doorway domains rarely are used for more than a year. Therefore, the date when a domain expires in the future can be used as a factor in predicting the legitimacy of a domain.


    5.Keyword in Subdomain Name:
    SEOMoz'z panel also agreed that a keyword appearing in the subdomain boosts rank.
    You can check keywordABC[dot]com


    6. Domain History
    A site with volatile ownership or several drops may tell Google to "reset" the site's history, negating links pointing to the domain.
