I have 2 domain names. A sample would be as follows:

So basically one domain has information spelled out and the other just has info.

I am wondering which one should be developed. info is shorter, but information seems better, but it's longer.

I assume from an SEO perspective that spelling out information is better, but I am not sure. I just don't want to develop sitenameinfo only to find out that it was better to go with sitenameinformation.

Any thoughts or advice on this would certainly be appreciated.

This non-expert says:

The choice between "info" and "information" as sitename elements is so very far down the list of factors that could seriously affect your long-term search-engine ranking that you've already spent more time on the question than it merits ;)

If you're looking at type-ins, shorter is better. But in any case you'll be redirecting from one to the other, right?
