Lets say the keyword I want to target is "broach"

I also obviously want to target the plural "broaches"

How would you register a domain for this scenario?

broachinfo.xxx or broachesinfo.xxx

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Ben

    Google does recognize variations in keywords but I would go with broaches.info because it captures both versions of the word.

      Other search engines will consider both keywords but according to th SEO experts I know, Google will only count one. Choose whichever has the most searches or least competition. You can still target the alternative in your content.

        What do you think would garner more SERP love?

          I don't have a clue when it comes to the emphasis on domains but I've always pretty much stuck to .com, .net and .org because that way I'm covered if it does matter...lol.

        Google does count plurals, I know this from the keywords section in the Webmaster Tools for my own site.

          I know it counts plurals but I've been told by several people with a lot more SEO knowledge than I have, that Google won't normally take the singular version out of the plural and rank you for both the same. That could be wrong - I don't know. But I would go for the term with either the most searches or the least competition out of the two, just to be on the safe side.

          When you search for a singular term, then search for the same term only plural, it doesn't often come up with the same site in the top position for both.

            google.com/search?hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&q=brooches&aq=f& aqi=g10&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

            Don't need to listen to anyone, just go to Google for your answer I had to go to page two to find an example, but Wikipedia is there with the page en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooch. You'll notice Brooch is not in bold, but all instances of Brooches are.

            Now let's go to the singular search.

            google.com/search?hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&q=brooch&aq=f&aq i=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

            You'll notice that all instance of the term "Brooches" on the page have "Brooch" bolded.

            That would tell me, pretty clearly, that using the pluralized version is the best way to go, and you will show as bolded for both plural and non-plural searches, and any benefit of having the keyword in the domain will be there in both instances.

    Personally I;
    definitely agree on the pluralization and making it a .com
    hyphenation may be an option, but I'd suggest selecting a nice second word, as hyphenation can make a site look less authoritative to consumers.

    broaches-everywhere.com
    broaches-abound.com
    broaches-fashion.com

    But really, while domain name helps, it can't be THAT huge a deal- right?
