Keep it short
Short & sweet. Less is more. As you can’t use any space in between your domain name and extension it is wise to use short words. Something long and unique might seem interesting and close to your heart.
But you have to remember that the audience can’t relate to that name’s emotion as much as you do. For them it’s just a name. The best you can do for them is to give them something totally uncomplicated to identify you.
So use short words to avoid confusion. For instance–

- Loved Life
- Blush and rush
The idea of keywords might be confusing to some. Let me discuss it again using the anchor theory. Suppose you run a shipping service. Now, what do you want? People who are searching for shipments. Align this with your domain name to get the best traffic which is constantly searching for shipments.

It helps to sort you into categories so that you can reach your desired audience. You should never overdo it. As it’ll make you seem a little bit pushy. Align your keywords like–
- Face beauty [for beauty-related domain]
- Life Inspirations [for lifestyle-related domain]
- Macro Photography [ domain related to photography]
Do some research

The unique domain also helps the search engine bots to index your domain separately. So that you can show up when someone hits the search button with your Unique domain name.
