    plural or singular domain?

    when you are buying a new domain for a site, and you are faced with picking between plural or singular, do you go with singular because it is one character shorter, or do you go with plural thinking people might be looking for plural, and does google treat both the same?

    ie. if someone searches for "girl with nice boobs" vs. "girls with nice boobs" will google favor a site that has the domain "bigboobsgirls.com" over "bigboobsgirl.com"?

    does it ever drive you crazy trying to decide that you end up registering both variations, and the .nets and .orgs too

    Wordtracker, though you have to sign up now and you are limited to the amount of searches per day. I have found it to be the most accurate.

    Well, i don't work in big boobs niche, but for me it doesn't matter will i use "gay" or "gays" in my domain
    And usually i always try to go only with .com domains. If .com is not available, then i take .net.

    DIAMONDGAYS.com - fresh twinks and best ratio! Highly recommended!

    Unless I'm absolutely targeting the exact on singular, I try to go for the plural. Ranks just about as well and I have two terms I can target.

    I try to decide what sounds right, for instance, bigboobsgirls is good for a site with lots of girls with big boobs, whereas bigboobsgirl to me says its just one girl featured on your site.

    And yes, a lot of the time i end up registering both just to protect my domain brand, esp if its for a paysite.

    I like to go with what ever makes sense grammatically and what matches a meta keyword or two. When in doubt I use adwords keyword tool for what gets that juicy Google traffic. When I use keyword based plural domain names, I just reg the .com or .net, but with unique brand potential names I 'll just buy everything relevant.

    I like this idea, that way you're covered on almost all fronts. And at about $10, you really can't lose
