Hi there,

i want suggestions from you guys!

I'm planning to go on a journey where I will be creating a Sub-niche site in the health niche, so all the articles will be mainly focused on this sub-niche, and want to ask what it best options are when you choose a domain for your business.

would you go for a 2-word really nice BRAND name or a domain name that has your keyword in it (EMD)?

For Example: weightlosscare.com Or a Brand name like DiestBuff.com / nutriable.com

Appreciate the suggestions

A domain having your keyword in it, it doesn't have to be EMD though. Depending on how you build and grow the site/business any name could become a brand name

It is not, it is the main keyword+word, I even I found the exact main keyword as a domain but I found it in .net, not .com

EMD or a catchy branded domain .com preferred will be the best choice here.

I always go for two words. EMD if possible.

Don't make a haste decision and try to aim for a domain name that screams authority.

I've gotten multiple high-end backlinks on my newest site simply because my domain name makes it sound like I'm an authority within the niche, even though the site is only 140 days old.

On another site, I went with an EMD 2 word domain and while EMD's don't work on Google, they do work on Bing. That site started outranking the competition on Bing many months before it did on Google, great for early traffic.

Would you be relying on ads or seo for traffic?
If you are planing to focus on ads, then just go with anything you fancy. Seo, go for 2 words brandable, EMD is not what it used to be so it's not an advantage..

Go with a max of 2 words combination. I use leandomainsearch.com to help me suggest some good domains for the words I want

I already have the domains in hand, just want to see which one better to choose from

It is not exactly an EMD.com I'm choosing from for my micro-niche site, but rather it is a PMD

EMD (Exact match domain) = weightloss.com
PMD (Partial match domain) = weightlosscare.com
Brandable = Nutriable.com
