The right way to choose a domain name

After I've a successfully website with a good ranking and have fulfilled my goal, but with one exception that my website is in an Asian country [Thailand] and that is one of the major problem because Adword pays very low for us as a publisher so the CPC for adsense what I'm getting is very low like 0.05$ per click.

I can't really complain about that after I did all the research why it is so low, and I did everything to bring up my CPC and the most I did was just 0.09$ and that doesn't really help much for the future.

So I come up with an idea for myself to actually start doing a post in English [My another website I post in Thai language] which really going to improve all that if I still follow the rule whatever I applied to my current website and maybe put some more efforts about it. Like doing a keyword research [Which I'm not good at it at all.] and all that would help me to get more traffics.

Now come to the point, My current Thai website domain name is so by the domain can right away tell that this website is about Apple and it is locate in a "Siam" country which is a former name of "Thailand"

What is really a trouble for me and I believe for many newbie as well is to choose the right and the best domain name for your website.

So I did a research a bit and found that one website suggested that "12 rules for Choosing the right Domain Name"

Let see

1. Brainstorm 5 Top Keywords
[I'm having a problem with this one really]

2. Make the Domain Unique

3. Only Choose Dot-Com Available Domains

4. Make it Easy to Type

5. Make it Easy to Remember

6. Keep the Name as Short as Possible

7. Create and Fulfill Expectations

8. Avoid Copyright Infringement

9. Set Yourself Apart with a Brand

10. Reject Hyphens and Numbers

11. Don't Follow the Latest Trends

12. Use an Ajax Domain Selection Tool

Now we can see that the rules is simple to follow, but from #1 is really a tough one since I'm not really good at keyword research.

All I know that my website I'm going to write about tech stuff. Like Apple, Google web [Not android though, maybe sometime update the news, but not about their phone], and you know about jailbreak stuff, Windows, but mainly about Apple products and jailbreak.

How can I come up with some good keyword for whatever I'm looking at above info?

What is the technique to look for keyword?

    I don't think Exact Match Domain name is as important for ranking anymore, so I would just pick something you like and that makes sense to you.

    Don't stress over to much.

    Make sure it passes the telephone test.

    People should be able to spell it when they hear it.

    I found the #4,5,6 as strong over other factors while choosing a domain name. Its the links on other sites (aka backlinks) that make the site popular and not just the relevant name. Just look at domain names of Apple, Google, Microsoft and may other that has noting to related with their fields of services etc.

    To choose the keywords for the domain, I am using google keyword tool. Make sure you make your location to Thailand so you can get the data from your country. Look at the demand for your related keywords. Use those that have higher demand and low in competition. This does need some checking and trying as most keywords will be use by others already.

    For me I will also use domain suggestion tool. So I will type in the keywords that I wanted to rank for, then get it suggested with additional words that can be placed on the domain.

    Hope this help.
    Stay consistent and FOCUS!
    This is the best system to succeed in internet marketing.
