    Length of the domain name should not matter to the search engine rankings, unless if its something crazy long than it might look strange and suspicious to your customers. Its best to have your main target keyword in the domain name for easier rankings, and in the opposite way you may not need to have keyword in the domain name if you are promoting a brand.

    Yeah you wana hit keywords not worry about length. .info can rank with good seo, of course, but it's tougher than the main 3

    Get a .com/.net/.org with your keyword in it.

    .info's are 3x harder to rank.

    It would be better to have a key word in the domain name... Why are you getting a .info? Why not a .com or .net?

    Do you got any sort of test case confirming this at all? I've never ever witnessed anything like that at all.

    This is just my opinion based on my experience it's up to you if you want to believe it or not.

    My personal knowledge IM that domains name with .info .biz are not recommended to be used for long term investment. Try to get .com .net .org are recommended. If not used hyphens between your keyword.

    As long as your product rocks, your domain choice will suffice.

    those very short domains were usually used for spamming so you better research it a little before purchasing
