    Hi guys,

    I have found some great keywords but they have a stop word in them "up" but, i'm having problems understanding whether to go for the domain name or not.

    So say for example my domian was "flyuphigh.com" would google just see "flyhigh.com" and would i rank for "fly up high" or just "fly high"?

    Thx in advance.

    Google awards points for everything so for your domain flyhigh.com you would be ranked higher for exactly "fly high" with more points where you have 100% density.

    But when the keyword is "fly high up" then your density of domain is 66%, so less weightage though you will get fewer points only.

    stop words in url would always hurt, but make your math, if it is a killer phrase, free with the stop word and registered without it, it would be better to have something rather than nothing
