    Other example of use of number in domain is '2', for e.g www.go2abc.com.

    I think this is not a bad idea to get.com domain with short name.
    One of our multinational client is having this kind of domain.

    Just thought of a few examples:

    Google- when they registered the google.com name, were they focusing on having 'Good English' in their domain name? No, they practically made up that word (although it is similar to a googol)

    Veggie Boards- I am a member of this forum too. This is the top forum in this niche and veggie and a shortened version of vegetarian. vegetarianboards.com is much longer and harder to type in than veggie. And there is also a hidden benefit, by abbreviating it to veggie, they are also appealing to vegans at the same time. (thought this one was a great example)

    As for shortenings of words like to = 2, the = da and other crap like that it doesen't really appeal to me that much. Infact, I am not a huge fan of numbers in websites, for example, I believe the domain name of retireat21.com is colding the site back.

    The number in domain may be wrong with the point of view of SEO or any other reaso.
    I think it depend on the personal taste.

    Only in exceptional situations as in this contest. Sulumits-retsambew is better than sulumitsretsambew.

    Only if you want to invest a lot of money in the brand name domain. The market has no value. Try to sell it...
