    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

    Home Page:
    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
