I am registering a new domain name which is my main keyword. It is very important for me to use my main keyword as the domain name. The .com version is only available for $1,250 which I can not afford so this brings up 3 questions.
If I use the .US extension (for $3.69) will the SEO and rankings be negatively affected to any
Would it be better to use a hyphenated .com instead? For example:- 12345-XYZ.com
I guess the real question is, after going to the trouble of finding the perfect keyword to create my domain name from, what affect does the extension have on SEO and also what affect would a hyphen have?
I would be very grateful for your advice.
