    Which domain is better?

    One is [one****.org/.net].
    Other is the [1****.com/.org/.net].

    *****signifies my keyword.

    Any help would be highly appreciated :D

    Hard to say without seeing your keyword and which I don't think will be good idea to reveal. Just pick one which is easy to remember...

    For example No1 is easier to remember then noone.... You can also see some cases where alphabets are easier to remember then numbers...

    I don't like numbers in the domain because the visitors will always be confused whatever it is spelled or just a number. Try to choose additional word instead of number.

    I personally think mixing in numbers is never a good idea, in never appears as professional. Maybe go for ****.net, but it depends on your keyword I guess.

    Go for the first one. But not .org Instead go for .net.

    One is [one****.org/.net].

    I agree with others, numbers can be a bad idea.. i suppose it depends on your domain & what your doing with it..

    one**** is what people will type if they remember your site name..

    if it's a micro niche and your main traffic source is google I'd go with keywordsuffix.com (ie no numbers)
    if you think you will get direct visitors and it's important to you to use 1/one before the keyword, you could buy both and redirect one of them to the other.

    I think you should take first domain without using any numbers.
