A domain name question

Hi,

I am going to buy a new domain for my business.

I have two options for domain name:

1.) Either buy a domain that has all targetted keywords in domain name e.g. LowCostBusiness.com

2.) Or buy a shorter domain name that abbreviation for low cost e.g. LCbusiness.com

Which one is better for SEO?

The first one would be more preferable than the second from the SEO perspective.

Domain with all targeted keywords is much better than abbreviation.

First one will be better for seo purposes because it includes keywords that will provide you special benefits during seo activities.

The first one of course. If you are not going to promote a brand, it is best to use the full keyword phrase. A domain with the main keyword phrase in it has much SEO benefit

What's the latest thinking between

www.keyword1-keyword2.com

and

www.kewyword1keyword2.com

and

keyword1.keyword2.com

?

www.kewyword1keyword2.com is far preferable, if you can get it.

I'd even go for www.kewyword1keyword2.net over either of the others.

the phrase 'Low Cost' can be said in many ways, check an online thesaurus for a number of near equivalents.

For my own projects, I've done much thinking about keyword1keyword2.com versus &&&&&.com, where &&&&& is a short series of letters that means nothing. Your LCbusiness.com is somewhat similar to &&&&&.com, because LC doesn't mean anything until it is branded and marketed. That's the key.

Look at Google, swoopo, ebay, etc. With enough marketing, the brand will stand out more than keyword1keyword2.com, because keyword1keyword2.com has generic words that can have meaning and power elsewhere, sucking energy away.

However, if you don't have that much time nor funds, go with keyword1keyword2.com, because you'll benefit from the standard SEO mentioned in previous posts.

Another key question is where your traffic is coming from. If Internet, as with most sites, then keyword1keyword2.com, and keyword1-keyword2.com is also ok. But if some traffic comes from offline sources, such as tv or print, avoid keyword1-keyword2.com and &&&&&.com. Why? Think about how it is said aloud. They will be difficult to understand how to spell and then type in a browser.

domain name containing keyword is better i think,
it helps to affect your rankings on search engines in a positive manner

I had a client whose business name was his wife's initials + a common business term.

His wife is a really nice lady, but it's hard to rank for her initials and it was going to take for-ev-ah to rank for the business term.

My suggestion is to a) drop the initials and go with "greatproduct.com" or similar or b) buy out the store on names and point them to the favored location "greatbandersnoot.com" or whatever

Unless you have a brand, don't mess up with abbreviations. I'd get the one with the keywords, it helps both in SEO and the visitors.
