    I'd like to switch my website to new place as current domain have trademark issue.

    I have 2 option,

    1. Either go for Subdomain of one of other existing website i have up in same niche.
    Or
    2. go with completely new domain with generic name.

    Can anyone suggest which will better to keep least ranking damage?

    P.S. The current website is ranking well ranked #2 for my main keyword.

    Any specific benefits of using GenericDomain.com over Keyword.website.com (Exact Match SubDomain) ?
