    Hi there

    First post so be gentle. I've read a lot and my eyes are going crossed :)

    I'm going to start a wordpress blog/site on a niche that is a personal quest too. Now - couple of quick questions before I buy my domain..

    *the subject material of the whole website will be across the range of the niche - I'd like people who aren't necessarily interested in just "training" for example to click on it anyway and read about some of the other things going on. But I will heavily optimise for "training" as it gets 1,220,000 global searches (it's a global topic) at a medium competition level and it will be the main thing I will write articles about initially and promote products but long term there will be other areas of interest on there - diet, tips etc..

    *so I didn't want my EMD to contain the word training as didn't want it to put off more casual browsers

    I've noticed when googling the keywords that the main one comes up first obviously but the others with the keywords within the domain still come up on page one. So could I have the domain starting with MY without losing too much? the two keywords still gets 49,500 global searches with a medium competition rate.(sorry this isn't too clear but I couldn't add my keywords to this post as it kept banning me from posting it!)

    I hope this makes some kinda sense - there seems to be a good amount of global searches for my chosen EMD and if the content is heavily optimsed towards training should grab some of those 1m global searches?

    (ps why would something with a million searches only have a medium competition rate?)

    hi there

    I'm not purchasing a premium if that's what you mean by "seller" - only a currently available domain from godaddy or wherever - I can only work with what's available.

    Any further advice on the exact keywords or does the E-M-D vs EMD debate still rage on? does it not matter if one of my important keywords isn't in the main EMD as it's not just about that one keyword (although it's an important factor)

    i'm a bit confused, if your keyword is 'training' and you don't want that in your domain name how the hell is a emd???

    Anyway, personally i would focus on one thing at a time, get a emd with your first keyword in and build up that site, promote it THEN would look at trying the other keywords on other sites with emd's but thats just my 2c worth.

    good luck

    I'm not to sure I understood your question, but an EMD means exact mach domain, so the domain name has to be exactly the keyword you want to write about...any variation is not an EMD. For example keyword.com is an emd but mykeyword.com is not an EMD. If the EMD is available for the keyword that has the more searches then I would take that EMD because it will bring more traffic because it is easier to rank for since your site would be an EMD.

    Hi, your EMD question has already be answered but I'll answer your next.


    The internet is a very big place and it'll be hard to find any traffic for your niche like that. I recommend getting a keyword with 1000 local views and about $1 CPC.

    Yes thanks :) I know it's confusing but I'm not allowed to use some of the words on my post so had to strip a lot out - I know it doesn't make a huge amount of sense.

    Training is only one of the keywords covered by the blog. So you are saying rather than having one blog surrounding the whole niche of mutts for example, make four different websites each covering a different "sub-niche"? eg mutt training on one, doggy diet on another. Or can I have the four different sub niches domains all point to the one blogging site? I would hope that if someone visited for "training" for example but saw a cute new toy from Amazon, they would buy the clickbank training guide and perhaps the toy too...

    okay back to the drawing board it sounds like...I don't want to overcomplicate things and would rather just update the one site and make it awesome than have to host and update 4 every day.

    cheers :)
