    Is it OK to have a long domain in this situation?

    If you get an exact match keyword domain, is it OK for it to be really long? Not dramatically long, but just a bit longer than average?

    I think that longer domains have lower resell value. So you want to consider that before investing time and money on the link building.

    But with that said, I don't believe that for seo purposes it will make too much of a difference having the domain name a tad longer.

    The ones I have in mind are about 2-3 words, yes.

    2-3 words isn't very long.

    The longest domain name I have is for my make money online blog:
    RunningOnlineBusiness.com

    I love it because it's easy to remember and gives you an idea of what the site is about before you even visit it! Plus, 'running online business' gets a few hundred hits in Google as well, which is just an added benefit.

    So, if your domain name is easy to remember and it sounds good, then go with it!

  6. i think its alright as long as its easy to remember
    and something that people may search on the web

    If most of your visitors come from searchengines or links they will not care to much about the length of the domain name

    If the keyword it matches is good enough with a high search volume then its worth going for that domain. But the problem being that you 'may' regret later if you don't like the domain name and realise that you could've rather bought a smaller name and by adding folders to match as keywords, targeted them.

    I think it's more important that the domain name is easy to remember, if your domain name is long but easy to remember, then it's worth investing in it.
