    Sincerely appreciate any opinions here... =-)


    Trying to rank for a certain keyword (for example: " health supplement") that I will be selling. It would be a single product ecom store.

    Here is where I am confused in terms of trying to rank easier. Every other first page domain ranking for my keyword are 0-3yrs old max.

    Looking for opinions on which domain you would choose in this situation.

    -- I have a "heath/fitness" related blog that has been active for over 6 years but is strictly a blog and the URL is some generic non-brandable name that makes no sense with the product I would be selling.

    so use my 6 yr old domain blog ---
    www. redbluesky .com

    or put the ecom store on the subdomain like: health-supplement.redbluesky . com

    what about a subfolder? redbluesky.com/health-supplement


    Should I even bother with an aged domain or just go with a brand new one and concentrate strictly links and on-page SEO only but a more relevant domain:

    healthpersonsupplement .com


    OR ---


    what about simply trying to rank a blog post/pre-sell page on the original aged domain and putting a large buy button that links to the new website store?



    Ideas, thoughts, questions?

    When thinking about the domain you can think further than "short as possible' name when memory and internet speeds were very limited now a person finding you on a tablet or cell must be a part of the search. There is also the thinking of having multiple domain names point to one site. (mothership + satelitte sites + blogs + your affiliate army which will also promote you. Let alone the health guides and niche recipies you will be publishing...redbluesky recipies/ . . .and more. Some of which will be special offers, discount, holiday to your members. . .

    just trying to outrank the competition....

    used an aged meaningless domain or new domain with the product in the URL?
