Help me choosing between 3 domain names

by 14 comments
Hello,
I am having trouble selecting the right domain name between the list below. I read a lot (too much??) discussions about Branding/SEO and I am now confused!
The new website is a directory of holistic (or health/healing) retreats (or resorts) mostly based on reviews. In 5 languages.

This is the choice:
1- Holistic-Retreats.com : keywords rich domain but not very brandable? Competition and confusion with a lot of other domains I guess. And HyphenÖ
2- GoRetreats.com : short and one keyword, a little bit more brandable but not that great?
3- Tripolistic.com : Very brandable (my opinion?), no keyword (unless I do it under tripholistic.com, but would it loose its attractiveness?). Do you see it too close to tripadvisor so at risk of their lawyers??

Thank you for your time and support.
Ved.

    I like tripholistic and also goretreats. I like holistic-retreats as well, but I can see how it might take longer to get good traffic and build that brand up, still doable though.

    I'm no expert but that's my ideas. Maybe I'll list there soon!

    Tripolistic.com... no question. It's very brandable, as you say, and memorable. You're like me... overthinker.

    Tripolistic.com -- remind me of the city, Tripoli. Not a very good choice in my opinion.

    GoRetreats.com is easy to remember. That could help with branding.

    I will recommend Tripolistic.com reason, use five to six keywords in domain.

    I think that tripolistic says NOTHING. At least add the H - tripholistic - so that people at least start to get a mental image and will recognize enough of what they are seeing to click if it's relative to them. But - if elejeffe77 was telling the truth, it's really beside the point, right.

    I'm stuck here on what software I can use to perform some basic tracking. I'm using Bing PPC and Leadpages. I thought I could use the basic tracking in Bing and the simple analytics in Leadpages. I've done a small test, running a handful of targeted ads and a few landing pages, however leadpages shows I have 0% conversions. I'm not even sure if it is tracking when someone actually clicks thru my landing page or if all 3 pages I have tested suck that bad.

    Hey guys I have a simple question regarding promoting my site on twitter, I want to use my twitter account exclusively for marketing purposes and barely any social activity since I don't expect to receive many messages there. My plan is to target specific hashtags within my niche and tweet once or a few times(not spamming) each day with a catchy headline & a link to my site.

    I read a post today on the WF declaring that article marketing was dead. If youíve been on this forum for a while youíve seen this declaration multiple times before. The Warrior said it used to work years ago, but there is no sense in using this outdated bygone strategy today. Let me ask you Ė do people still read articles online? Of course they do and these articles are the lifeblood of some of the most popular web sites on the planet. All publish articles that have outgoing links to further information or the authorís web site. Here are some examples:
