I am building a website in a hard niche (credit cards), but in my native language so the competition is not impossible to beat.
I have some questions about URLs and how to best solve this.
The best URLs are ofcourse taken, so here is my options:
An URL with the main keyword + an extra word like expert, guide, portal etc. The extra word is not an important keyword (the domains with highly relevant keywords are all taken)
The main keyword + 1-3 random letters (like abc, one, ly etc.) This will be a shorter URL than Option 1, but the last letters will not be relevant (like ly is not a word in my language).
Example: www.creditcarda.xx, www.creditcardly.xx
The first half of the keyword + one letter
What option is the best?
The link structure will be made to match long tail keywords, for example "best credit card 2016" will be like this:
Waht do you think is the best? I am in serious doubt, but I am starting to think Option 2 is what I should go for.
