    I am in the process of building a "How to" website and was able to lock down the keyterm URL and the "how to" URL including this keyterm. I am wondering if it is better that my include the "how to" or better to just leave it off. As an example, lets pretend that my niche is "How to Milk Hamsters". Which of the following do you believe is better at delivering results within the search engines?

    MilkHamsters(dot)com

    or

    HowtoMilkHamsters(dot)com

    Either way, I should be covered. However, just for the sake of getting off on the right foot, which URL does everyone think would be best to lead with? Do you think Google gives points for "How to" being included within the URL? Many Thanks!!!

    Many thanks! I will go ahead and take your advice on this. Before getting neck deep in this project, do you think that an exact keyword match w/ zero history on domain has any chance of beating ehow(dot)com? It is my understanding that exact match can help a great deal... err... haha.. I hope =)
