I'm thinking about a domain to register for a simple personal project (that I hope would become popular.. some day. maybe ').
But I'm not sure what domain to buy. I have two choices, below are examples. I use the word 'erase' to show that this should be used as a verb.
WidgetErase.com (2 words)
EraseYourWidget.com (3 words)
Te 1st choice is: [Noun][Verb], the 2nd is more natural (people use these 3 words together as they are).
So which one would be best for long-term SEO strategy? To me it's easier to remember the natural flow of the 2nd choice, but I'm afraid if a 25-28 character domain would not be penalized by search engines?
PS. Regarding type-ins, these days browsers remember your URL history so it's much easier for an average user to 'type-in' a domain (IF he had visited the site before). So the only dilemma is if the 2nd choice isn't too long and if 3 words won't look spammy to Google.
