Getting a general search term domain to rank high

 8:09 am on Nov 9, 2007 (gmt 0)


If I can see that a general search term is taken as .com domain name. Would it be an idea to take a word and put in front, like 'my-searchterm.com', or behind it as 'searchterm-4-u.com'?
Would the search engines like that better you think, and almost as good as if the extra word wasn't there (as in 'searchterm.com')? Would it be a strong tool in the seo process?
Would it matter what the word in front or back is (do it has to make any real sense), that is will the search engines still rank the 'searchterm' part high?

Just a quick idea.

Behind or all words with dashes between them, blue-widgets-for-u.com...KF

The name of the domain can help you rank but the key deciding factor on where you will rank will ultimately be the content on your site and the links pointing to it.

Thanks, both of you. I could really use that.

I think another factor you should consider is the age of the domain. The older the domain the better.

Thanks, I'll consider that as well.

Regards and have a great weekend!
