And if you can't get the dot com domain name you want, and you can't or don't want to fill it with dashes (opinion seems divided on the impact of dashes in domain names), doesn't it make sense - like with taken email addresses - to add a digit at the end?
For example, if internetmarketing.com is taken, register internetmarketing2.com
This isn't talked about much and I've seen some adult industry sites doing it.
I'd love to hear what the black belt SEO gurus here think - I honestly don't know the answer but it seems like a valid workaround.
Your thoughts guys?
