I have done so many google searches tonight trying to find this information that I'm getting the meesage "We're sorry...
... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application."
anyways, I am looking to buy a domain name and need some seo keyword advice (I can't find this info anywhere!!).
Hypothetically, let's say the keyword phrase that I want to use is called:
Hotdeals.com isn't available, neither is hot-deals.com
Would buying "BestHotDeals.com" or "HotDealsNow.com" still give me good SEO benefits for 'hot deals'?
Also, most of the content on my site will be labeled "Hot deals for you", "hot deals for everyone", etc....will any of my two domain ideas be beneficial since 'hot deals is smooshed in the domain name? I don't want to rank for hot deals because that is SO broad, but I would want to combine it with other phrases that I can compete with.
Ok, I really hope that made sense...and again - hot deals is hypothetical.
Yes, it will, albeit not that much as just hotdeals. Better add something at the end though, it is called prominence.
And frankly, who in her right mind would try to rank for "hot deals"?
As I understand it and have been taught, ( not necessarily correctly.) the url is not terribly important, and if it contained your keyword that would suffice.
From there you should consider what Google will scrape as your summary text, then build your keywords logically with keywords at the beginning, middle and end of your text, but just a few times at the beginning, once or twice in the middle and again, a few times toward the end.
Make the keywords highly targeted.
Sorry that is all I can think of. Brain not very good today!
Also, the method I use to find domain names is Godaddy bulk register. You just take all your key phrases, remove spaces, and run them through as a list. It will give you the list of available ones.
I think I've found a great one, I just need to figure out whether to use a descriptive word before or after my two keywords... I like my choice with the descriptive word AFTER my keywords, but I don't want it to adversely affect my rankings. Even still, I'll still check out the bulk name tool.
Alsoooooooo....hyphens (dashes) in the domain name? I've been reading a resounding "no!" on all the sites I've read. They say it's great for the page name (like here at HP) but bad for the domain name because it is beginning to be viewed as spam by SE.
Thanks, guys. Very helpful.
I guess I'm just concerned about using a descriptive word before or after the two words that will be part of my targeted keyword phrases on my site.
For example (i'll use my hypothetical 'hot deals' again LOL):
besthotdeals.com (edit...oops didn't mean for these to be real links hahaha)
or hotdealsnow.com (edit...oops didn't mean for these to be real links hahaha)
Hot deals will be a part of my article titles....so I guess my only concern about using "hot deals now.com" is that I will never use that exact phrase in any of my titles or keywords and I don't want the end word to cut off the seo benefit. I guess in someways, I thought that "best hot deals" would be a better example because (in my mind) that leaves the keyword open to incorporate into my phrases...make sense? Like, I wouldn't use "hot deals now for you", but I could use "hot deals for you" and the "best" for besthotdeals.com would just be irrelevant.
that is probably super confusing....
I thought I answered it. After, positively.
As for the hyphens, you want to get your domain name as short as possible, so if you can do without, better do without. Yet I did not hear about them adversely affecting rankings, and never tested this, so can't comment on that part.
hotdealsorg.com is available? 'hot deals org' is a decent keyword phrase, so hotdealsorg.com would be a good site name.
I would have to doubt any info that claimed hyphens had any adverse effects on serps.
Its just natural that as most short keywords and natural word domains are purchased up the industry is moving towards the use of hyphenated domains.
I would prefer to have the non-hyphenated domain for type in traffic if it is an option, dont forget to search for different country codes, short ones like .cc , .ly are gaining popularity
I have 3 first place results for hyphenated domain names that beat out my non hyphenated competition.
I havent noticed or ever read any distinction made about placement of additional words in a domain keyword string having a measured relevance
