    Absolutely register both as "Monetize" said. If you don't you're going to lose a large chunk of traffic, period. Why lost the trafic at a cost of $8 for a domain name? Use the "number" domain as your actual site, and have the number domain redirect to the main site.

        Check Google Keyword Tool...

        "7 steps to success" just pips "seven steps to success" with 260 to 210 broad matches.

        Not much in it really
