I need your opinion... Plural or not?

    Hi all,

    I need your opinion on which of my domain names to use for my new website.

    WidgetBargain.com

    or

    WidgetBargains.com
    SEMrush
    I've decided to get both the singular and plural to prevent someone else from snatching it... but now I'm not sure which one to use.

    Thanks again for the suggestions.

    Plural ... it indicates more than one bargain ... simply redirect the singular to the plural.

    Ive had the same problem in the past, purchased to domains one being the plural.

    Plurals sound better!

    Plural, but I like to buy both so some ad company doesn't get it later.

    Plural... but be sure to do a 301 redirect for the singular to the plural. That way you don't lose type-in traffic of folks who forget the "s".

    Good luck!

    But what about widgethome.com or widgetshome.com ?
    The plural is behind another word. What would you choose? I also bought both :) and I'm thinking of using the plural too. The logo "Widgets Home" sound better, even if in the domain it's a bit confusing...
