Hi,

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.

Thanks!

Regards,
Thomas :)

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.

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