    Does anyone have an overview of google stopwords in different languages?

    Im trying to find a good Dutch domain but all keyword exacts are already taken.

    Thanks

    1. Stop words don't exist anymore.

    2. If you have a word which will give you no help in your domain, just make sure the 1 or 2 that do are the best they can be.

    3. If as you say all the generic terms have gone in the language, then you need not worry too much about the domain, and more on optimising your overall site.

    4. If your at this point now, is it worth carrying on?

    Ok 4 is cheeky, but step back and look again at what you are really wanting to achieve, when you find this out, get googling and seek out the answers.

    I don't know if it was Spock, Kirk, Checkov or Doodlebug that said 'The answers are out there'

    Best of luck.

    Thanks Caz,

    After doing a lot of research I found out that all domains with relevant keywords were taken, bit what if i would add a random word to the main keyword the domain is about? For an example:

    I want to start a website about beer.

    What would then be the best name? Beerdirect.co.uk or Directbeer.co.uk?

    Or doesnt it matter if the main keyword or the random word comes first?

    BierGids.co.nl for example translates Beer Guide

    Caz, I used that domain name as an example, the question was what would be good from a SEO perspective, using a random in the beginning of a domain name or in the end?

    Interesting subject. I think the names do matter, the following is anecdotal evidence from quite a few sites of mine that - and this is aimed at getting other opinions, not making a statement of fact...


    For "hob nailed boot repairer"

    1/Get the exact ahead of the other keywords, not behind.

    so hobnailedbootrepaireronline does better than onlinehobnailedbootrepairer

    2/Use a neutral extension like "online" or "blog" than a meaningful one like "formen"

    And these do better than prefixes

    3/ Prefixes matter too - even amongstneutral ones.


    Thehobnailedbootrepairer

    Does better than

    ahobnailedbootrepairer

    Does A LOT better than a meaningful like

    mobilehobnailedbootrepairer

    Which is great for exact match to "mobile " but hindes you for "Hobnailed boot repairer"

    All IMHO - I notice in domainsamurai, all they seem to focus on % keywords to whole. I think suffix is better than prefix and neutral extension better than meaningful.

    What do other domainers think?

    Does anyone then have a list of neutral words to be used in domain names?

    Im currently planning to use "direct" but not too sure how neutral it is

    Be careful with direct - many "direct" names are trademarked.

    Thanks :)

    Found a name which contains the word your ( je in Dutch )

    So planning to reg a name which is your (je) + keyword what the site is about.

    This would mean that I am putting the random word in front of the keyword which the website is about but it will give me the advantage of having the exact keyword in the domain name plus a remorable domain name which will help me to get some possible future traffic from type-ins.

    Would this be a good reason to select a domain name?
