The first place to go to find a great domain name: Available domain suggestions, expired and expiring domain name search.

Choosing the right domain name could BOOST your search engine rankings and popularity.

Picking a domain name for an authority blog is a much bigger deal than picking a domain name for a typical niche website.

With authority blogs you want to pick something that you can build a brand around.

So don’t get hung up on using exact match domains (EMD).

I am not a big believer in using exact match domains if you have more than three keywords in your primary keyword phrase. It will cause them to lower the trust in your site.

It will decrease click through rates in the search listings.

So, I don’t recommend it in the vast majority of cases.

And those reasons for not using them get stronger every year as people become more and more internet savvy.

If your primary keyword is only three words long, then I guess you could argue for using the exact match. In order for me to use that EMD I would still want that domain to be somewhat brandable.

If I didn’t think I could build a brand name around that domain name, then I would definitely skip it and choose something better.
