    Hi Name Pros,

    I am curious which domain I should use for my company website.

    Lets use "Baseball Bat" and "Baseball Bats" as an example.

    According to a Keyword Tool: Keyword + Baseball Bats gets searched for more than Keyword + Baseball Bat

    Naturally, BaseballBats.extension (plural version) describes the products / services perfectly. However, would using the singular version BaseballBat.extension (singular version) somehow rank better with search engines?

    Whichever ranks best is where the other version will 301 to.

    That said, should I go with ...

    A) BaseballBats.extension >> 301 >> BaseballBat.extension

    OR

    B) BaseballBat.extension >> 301 >> BaseballBats.extension

    Please assist and explain why what's best etc -- thank you!

    Go with what the target audience finds natural and easy to use.

    Ranking will be based on your site content and how popular your site is with users, as they will link to it at fb,twitter,etc.

    According to seo rule you can go with bats version because in search term bat include in bats so it is great for search result or seo purpose.

    Good advice.

    I wouldn't worry to much about SEO though. Focus instead on what and how the audience searches for it.
