Been thinking of starting up a new website for a specific element of what we do.
Just wondering in terms of domain names it seems logical to have a name that people also search for, so gardenmaintenancetunbridgewells.com for (a bad) example!
But is it better to go local, so include your town in the title or go wider and include the county?
Welcome any thoughts.
Aparently google frown upon websites that use keywords and I read an article on a link from twitter the other day (sorry can't find it) but the google alogorithm for placing pages on google could possibly even penalise a website name for having just key words in it. Doesn't mean this is true though!
Today I saw an advert for cleaning windows and other bits and I scoured the advert trying to find the name of the business because everywhere it just said domestic and commercial cleaning crawley. Customers like to see business names and this could go for website names too?
Any reason why you want to set up another website for a specific part of what you do- isn't it better to concentrate on your current website and make it better with more pages etc?
Anyways...this is just my thoughts, other's may think differently.

Thanks for the comments, interesting and useful stuff.
I'm just looking to focus a new website on a different service which has a different target audience. Will have to think on!
If i remember right to get top off google or recognised is to have good meta tags.i belive google picks up on these.
