i am thinking of registering a domain

if keyword1 is the keyword i want most emphasis on, is there much difference between

Keyword1-Keyword2.com
and
Keyword2-Keyword1.com

with the terms im using the one with keyword1 as the second word is easier to remember in my opinion but does it make a huge difference to the search engines

got another question too

term1.org gets over a million results on google
term2.com gets around 450,000 results on google

which do you register - the org or the com (bear in the mind the site wont be an organisation) - the org domain is easier to remember too

thanks

Hello there Fonzerelli_79,

IMO, go with the keyword combination that makes the most sense. An example is, if you had "Flowers" and "Arrangements" (examples) as your keywords, I would go with flower-arrangements.com, instead of arrangments-flowers.com. It seems to me that folks are getting a little too focused on what will do better in the search engines and not what would be easier to remember for their clients/visitors.

There are plenty of other optimizing tactics to rank well in a search engine.

As far as your second question, I would choose a .com over any other extension. Once again, that's just my two cents!

Cheers,

- Chad

Personally I would register all of them and cover your bases. Be careful however, if the keyword1keyword2.com is a competitor of yours, you could potentially drive free traffic to them.

On this part... although the norm would suggest that reaching top placement with 1 million would be more difficult, this is not always the case.

term2 could have many more highly competitive pages than term1.

Less does not always mean easier.
