    Hey y'all,

    I need some help in deciding a domain name.

    I'm in a niche that helps people select the best cooking school for them.

    At least that's where the $ come from.

    At the same time, I have tons of information on the best cooks, cooking tips, cooking accessories, etc

    I'm about to go all in but I'm stuck on the name . . .

    Shoud I stick with bestcookingschools (Sounds like a cooking school directory. Maybe easier to rank faster as far as cooking schools go) or improveyourcooking (Sounds like something that covers everything. Schools, tips, etc).

    Like which is better for the user? The concept is to learn cooking but from professionals (Main idea).

    Thx!

    Definitely the latter. You could expand into more areas, even ecommerce. Don't limit your reach

    Thx for your answer Jason. Yeah that's what I was thinking. I'm kind of battling between specific targeted niche (People struggling to find professionals to learn from) vs people looking for professionals to learn from and additional stuff (Tips, tutorials,etc). My monetization plan is getting paid for the leads I send to these cooking schools.

    That's the only thing that's kind of causing me to stick with the first choice (bestcookingschools).

    However, I want to make sure it actually solves a problem for the user rather then just some 'money focused' site. Ofcourse I would like this site to be successful in providing value and $$$ but yeah . . . Now leaning toward the latter myself. Just want things to be targeted. Thx!

    Are you going to provide your audience the best cooking schools in your local area? or best cooking schools nationwide? If your intent is targeting local market, you should include your location name in the domain whichever of the two you end up choosing.

    domain name is not a really important ranking factor......if i make a new page i will go for a nice brandable name and not this KW stuff any more .... my opinion
