domain name for seo
I want to open a forum site about a certain subject. Of course the site name xxxxxxxxxxxforum.com or xxxxxxxxxxxxforums.com is already taken.
However, is it still good if I buy a domain name with the first word a little abbreviated and then forum.com? does it still help?
lets say the first word is 11 letter long. does it still help for seo if I buy a name first word 8 letter long (last 3 letters thrown out, first 8 letters exactly the same) and then forum.com?
so instead of
i buy the name
is this still good enough for seo?
