Domain Names and Keywords For Search Engine Marketing
Search engine marketing has many areas that can help your business get rankings and not all of them are easy. One fairly simple technique to help your business web site is to purchase a domain name with a strong keyword phrase related to your business.
 How to Determine the Best Keyword Phrases.
Use a Keyword Research Tool Using Google's Keyword Tool or Wordtracker. These tools will allow you to determine the best keyword phrases to place in a domain name.
 Search For Domain Names.
Goto GoDaddy.com or 1and1.com and search for available domain names that combine not only the best keyword phrase for your business such as BostonTaxi.com, LADogWalkers, ElectricLawnMowers.com, and BuffaloCarpet.com. If the .com is not available be sure to look for appropriate extensions such as .net, .us, and .biz.
 Hyphen or No Hyphen.
It appears at this time that most search engines give good rankings to both hyphen and non-hyphen domain names. If the only name target keyword domain available has a hyphen in it such as Boston-Taxi.com you may want to consider it. Keep in mind it may cause confusion to customers who type in the address wrong. They may leave out the hyphen and land at a competitor site. However, if the domain name is very strong and most customers will come directly from a search engine search, it may be wise to use this domain name.
The best course is to weigh your business name, your domain name and how your customers behave to determine the best approach. Securing a strong keyword phrase domain name can create significant search engine rankings for your business.
