    Ok so Ive found a few nice search terms but with a company name among the kws.

    E.g. adidasrunningshoes.com (not my keyword!)

    Is this much of a risk to take?

    PS - My keyword isnt too well known a company but fairly exclusive (eg theyn sell expensive stuff!)

    Cheers

    it can be taken down by the trademark owner.

    one way to do it totally legit and still have seo benefits

    register- runningshoes.com
    create subdomain adidas.runningshoes.com

    this way you can add other marks within the niche

    puma.runningshoes.com

    etc etc

    I had my site and domain taken off me. The domain was pacific-healthcare.co.uk and some fuckers in the US got their big shot lawyers involved and I was given 6 weeks to come up with a reason why I should have that name and to cut a long story short, it was taken off me (legally by a UK court ruling) and I was given a small fee as a consolation.

    Be very careful
