I was hoping to get some feedback on a domain name, i havent brought it.
I am planning to build a site that allows people to review or rate the lessons, dvd, software, book or instructor they have been learning in. but i cant make up my mind what the middle name should be. any feedback/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's a secret that I've learned the hard way: It doesn't matter. It sounds to me that you're building a brand, not a website. You need to pick the one that rolls off of your lips the easiest, the name that sticks in a person's brain the best.

    Is RateMyScienceClass.com available? That sounds better to me.

    Short, simple, and memorable.

    That is if you're building a brand, like J said.

    An EMD for a keyword is a different story.

        I suggest you to use shorter domain/brand. I know it's hard to find the short one, but it shouldn't necessarily be related to your content. And these 17-20 letters domains looks too complicated

    The point is to keep it short and memorable.
    I also read an article that discussed the idea that Google may
    rank your URL higher if it is shorter.
    I will look for the article and post the link in here.

        thanks everybody. especially JaRyCu. I am building a brand, not a website? ooooh! Never thought of that. I mean, how can you tell the difference?
        your suggestion has helped me narrow it down to two, i have even thought of a mascot for one of them, when you mentioned branding. thanks!
        the other one rolls off the tongue better. i will sleep on it.

    While it rolling off the tongue can be important, it's more important that you use the best keywords. Keyword in the URL is so important for Google rankings.

    I agree with JaRyCu, RateMyScienceClass.com/net/org seems like a good one. It says just about all there is to say about the subject and describes what the site is all about.

      Exact Match Domain. This is a little important (although not as important as it used to be) when you are doing niche marketing.

      Here's the difference in building a brand or a website:

      JaRyCu is a brand. No one else has ever had that name but me. How do I know? It's a combination of the first two letters of my first, middle, and last names (Jason R. Cunningham). I chose to build my brand of Internet Marketing off of it about a year and a half ago because it was unique to me. If you go to Google right now and type in "Jarycu," you'll find 7350 results that are ALL related to just me. When I incorporate later this summer, I'll be incorporating as JaRyCu Inc, and then I'll be using that as a holding company for The Article Pros, Cunning Designs, and my other businesses.

      Building a website, on the other hand, is more of targeting keywords that people are looking for and then trying to divert traffic from Google, FB, YouTube, Bing, Yahoo, et al, to come to your site. You are looking for the words that others are looking for and trying to rank for them.

      I do both, but I'm better at building brands. I once built a simple name, The Phone Guy, into a brand that covered the middle 1/3 of North Carolina. Now I'm doing it again, but this time I'm doing it online.

      See the difference?

    I would agree with Jayrucu. Its better to find find some decent domain that have EMDs. I recommend you search on google keyword tool and find out the best name that gets a good amount of searches. Then buy it.

      It's JaRyCu or Jason. Not sure who Jayrucu is. :confused:

      And that's not what I said at all. I was telling the OP that he needs to decide on his strategy. I use both strategies, but I tailor them to what I am trying to do.

    Thanks for your explanation JaRyCu. I am completely happy with the domain i choose. it has a big keyword in it, but the branding is great. I am putting together a great logo, with a little help from a fiverr artist. I think its very brand-able.
