    Domain Names
    Hi All! This has probably been covered here, but I didn't find anything when I searched, so I will ask:

    What is the rule of thumb when it comes to domain names? I know .com is King, but it seems near impossible to get a straight-out .com domain name. You can put an "e" or "my" as a prefix, or add "info" or something similar at the end. Is there some way to come up with a good domain name once you have the keywords you want to use? TIA!

    Why are you bothering with a domain name that has "Keywords"?

    You could be developing a brand...

    The search engines will find the keywords in your content, so they don't have to be blasted out in your URL. So instead of a URL like CheapAutoInsuranceQuotes.com, you could instead use something like FeelSafeInsurance.com, then build the brand for FeelSafe.
