I am about to start a new website that I am certain will do well based on the unique content and forum I have in mind for the site. However, I am not able to purchase the best domain names. Even second best ones are taken for the most part.
Suppose my site is about a subject "abcdef".
If I got a domain name such as this:
does google recognize the "abcdef" as distinct from the "forum"? Or should I purchase abcdef-forum.com?
Even if google has stopped giving importance to keywords in the site/domain name, I would still like the keyword in the title.
Also, if I end up having a forum on the site, it might be located at abcdefforum.com/forum. Bit strange to have two "forum" words in there, but at the moment, the forum is the most important part of my idea for the site and since I can't get domain names like abcdef.com, I am thinking of getting abcdefforum.com.
