    How to decide a Domain Name ? (Perspective of Google)


    Hello everyone,

    I need to launch a website on flowers. So I have a few queries about domain name:

    1) Does a domain name has any importance in Google ranking ?

    (If the answer is YES then)

    2) Which kind of domain name will better rank in Google ?

    3) How many keywords shall I use in my domain name ?

    4) Should I use hyphon (-) or underscore (_) between the words of my domain name ?

    5) If I use 4-5 keywords and a longer domain name, is is some kind of spamming in the eyes of google ?



    Thanks.

    One thing more, that I am asking this only and only for SEO point of view. I dont care how visitor reacts on and remember a longer domain name.

    Thanks.
    1) Domain name itself has no importance in Google

    2) a domain with your most important keyword (www.mykeyword.com) would normally rank better because the backlinks to your site will always include your main keyword

    3) 1 keyword for a domain IMO

    4) use hyphen between words

    5) I have seen very few sites rank high with 4 - 5 (normally MSN) but I wouldn't do it, IMO if you must do it use no more than 3
