    Consider putting a hyphen at the end. For example - mydomainname-.com

    The extra boost from emd these days is so negligible I wouldn't worry about it. I would definitely not pay a significant premium on a domain just to have an EMD.

    If you must use an EMD, just add an "s" or whatever at the end and you'll be fine. It's not going to make or break your SEO.

    Yes, Agreed.
    But, If dont focus only one the exact keyword, It works best.

    I have an EMD, Have only 2 Articles with the exact keyword, other 5 are related keyword. I am focusing mainly on related keywords.
    Ratio 30:70 & its working good for me.

    THe value of EMD is also that they get clicked more in results than random URLs. Google can never take this away.

    Yes, it may be used... but the letter should be relevant

    He said the domain he wants is selling for 50 grand. Do you think the market he is looking at is going to have no competition or something? I guarantee it is not even going to rank in any acceptable fashion.

    Drop the URL adding a letter BS, it's a waste of time. Figure out a new URL or a different angle for your niche. This thread is ridiculous.
