    Default Compare these 2 domains

    I'm about to register a new domain and I'm in a dilemma. New tld don't make things easier
    I would like your thoughts on this and this is just an example. For example, let's compare these domains:

    bestcasinoblackjack.com or casinoblackjackstrategy.com [ longer, 3 words, .com ]
    versus
    casinoblackjack.bet [ shorter, 2 words, .bet ]

    Which one would you choose? I'd very much like to read your reasoning.
    Thanks in advance.

    To be honest i would go with option #3: some domain which can be branded, relatively short and .com.
    Using your example: bigmammablackjack.com
    Best casinos to play slot machines online for real money. Reviews of best Real Money Casinos online.
    Check OnlineBlackjackExplorer for ratings of the best casinos to play blackjack online. Which games offer the lowest house edge, as well as free blackjack games, live dealer and mobile blackjack sites.

    The shorter, the better.
    But is not even better (when you decided to go to newgtlds) to pick something like blackjack.fun or blackjack.site or blackjack.blog?

    but .pub or .promo .chat .tools really should be available for 5-23 Eur at mrdomain.com
    maybe .toys .kim .rip .cards .gift .software .school .help suitable for some sites
    still up to 100 E

    just check the renewal prices, they like to screw you after

    I think still better than the relatively long .bet.

    If I had to choose one, it would be the first of the three, not even remotely close. That said I I think I would rather blackjack[noun].com eg blackjackwizard, blackjackguru, blackjacksmack etc

    In my opinion its better to use two words and a TLD instead of newgTLD.

    hmm I prefers short and sweet honestly, easier to remember the URL which itself could act as a traffic boost

    I would go with a 1-2 word .com domain that makes sense, or a one word domain from a new TLD that make sense.

    3+ word domains are not the best for branding, unless it is a popular term that directly relates to your content.

    One word domains from a new TLD works well.. if it's a good fit. Not something like blackjack.fun ..

    Branding IMHO far outweighs a key-worded TLD's, hands down.

    If "blackjack" is your niche, then containing that keyword in your domain is good, but it's not always required.

    EG - An acronym works. GPWA, ThePogg, etc., etc. I think sometime folks get too caught up in trying to gain a key-worded domain, and forget that "Branding" (easy remembered Brand), can really tip the scales in your favour.

    My advice, think outside the box, even if that means using single letters as "i" "u" and such. Anything to create a memorable Brand.

    Then design a catchy logo (or have one professionally designed for you).

    I can't emphasis it enough, site Branding - it's an investment in your longevity and overall success.

    I'm not a fan of "best", and I don't believe Google likes it either. Same goes for those domains with a 1 etc., before the keyword(s).

    For me it has to be number 3. Its short and punchy plus the .bet is in line with the subject. It works.

    I dont like the best ... ones seem a bit dated now.

    Have you tried .guide?

    Thanks in advance.
    Take it from someone immersed in the field since 2001: you will be making a mistake with option #'s 2 and 3.

    Rule #1: As a general rule with only rare exceptions, it must be .com. If you haven't found a good .com yet, move on or buy one.

    Rule #2: "the shorter the better." That is partly a myth. That is only generally, usually, or often so, not always so. There are many many exceptions to that where longer is better, and you are usually far better off with a top quality, top of mind, authoritative three word .com than an alternative.

    Rule #3: except in the rarest of cases where you also already have plenty of money to burn on branding and promotion, or the new TLD domain is so extraordinary as to be one in a million so to speak, use a new gTLD at your peril. In this case, that example is far too weak to even think of using instead of .com.

    Your best option there is #1. Under the circumstances, it's not bad and has decent use potential. Do not use either of the other two before that one and find another instead. #2 is also not bad if you are really going to publish or in some way provide valuable info on how to play blackjack while including affiliate links, however, but you wouldn't want to use it for a site if not.

    You misunderstood me, my fault, I wrote it wrong. The shorter is better, but under the same TLD. If the OP loves for some reason gTLD then the shortest is the best, so why not to take EMD.

    I still do not like gTLDs, but it is true that some sites out of gambling are getting natural links = people can remember them. E.g. http://segwit.party, https://outputs.today/ or https://fork.lol/

    There are also plenty of exceptions where longer is better even within .com or the same TLD, even though one may prefer to get the best possible short version of something.

    If the OP loves the new gTLD he will still be proceeding at great risk and his own peril if it's not a truly great example of rare quality. The one he showed is definitely not. Even then there is still currently a huge uphill battle and expense regardless, as people still think and trust ".com" and new gTLDs are still mostly alien to people. A new TLD domain like "Car.Loans" may be a rare exception of great quality, but there would still be a big expense and uphill battle branding, marketing and familiarizing people with it while they normally just think "carloans.com" and will even literally be searching for "carloans.com" and "car loans.com" and "car loans .com" and "carloans .com," etc.

    Those new TLD examples you gave may have gained some traction, but that is just a few compared to the vast multitude. People were "gambling" using them to begin with, and for every rare exception that may gain some traction there would be a vast pile of bullet casings on the floor after playing Russian roulette with other new gTLD domains and losing. There are always rare exceptions, and some are also rarer than others.
