      I second TaskTornado.com. Hurry and grab one or a couple of these before someone else does on here. Best of luck with the new site!

        I would go for OddJobsSquad. It is directly in line with the concept of your website.

        Good luck.

    Do you intend to get any type in traffic? If that the case then I would search for some other words. Have you already checked the availability of domain names for these words? Out of the list you've given, I would select WorkWizard or TaskMagic.

    Cheers,

      Thanks for your reply. I have done exhaustive research but am overwhelmed by learning curve, which is why I really appreciate this forum. I am a mom with 4 young kids and must get a site up and making $. It seems the search engines/ad sense like domains with high traffic words ... for instance job, work ... but I have wracked my brain for ideas and every good idea is already taken. So ... I tried to get original but is this good? For instance if workwiz.com is taken but no website exists ... and no trademark ... is it a bad idea to buy workwizjobs.com? This has high-traffic key words work and jobs and workwiz seems memorable ... but if people type in workwiz instead of workwizjobs would they get to my site? Also, would it be better to buy an expensive domain like Fasttask.com? Sorry for so many questions.

        Do not buy an expensive domain name, instead save that money for marketing and SEO. Try to find a domain name with keyword that has some related search volume with the low competition. else go for a short brand-able domain name.

        It's good that you have already done sufficient research on keywords & domain availability. I can second what BWHadam said & don't spend too much money on expensive domains at the beginning. All the best!

        No matter the domain name you choose, the manner of driving traffic will be of more affect on your results.

    I just bought them all in .com, .net and .org

    $100 each - let me know which you want please :-)

    I AM kidding of course, but i'd HIGHLY suggest you not post domains you're interested in buying here in the future as that could VERY well hapen

      Jeez, thanks for the anxiety attack. I admit posting those names was naive. Thanks for the good advice. I just bought a domain name. Crossing my fingers for success.

    From the list you gave I like OddJobSquad Now of course if you pick this or any domain name you want to make it your brand. think of that before jumping the gun on a name. Think about a logo, how it would be said and spelled over the radio, how it will look on letterhead etc. All of this should be thought out before getting the name.
