    Ok, I have a domain: Generalie.com , the problem with this domain is it's close to another similar aged and indexed domain: generali.com, so when i search google about: Generalie, it says do you mean Generali, and give me results about Generali
    In your opinion, should i build a USA general news website on my domain and try to index it or register a new domain?

    Let's see... Your domain is Generali

    1) Google considers it misspelled. Probably because it's not an english word and looks misspelled.. It's horrible.
    2) There's another web site that has a similar sounding domain that has a strong presence and maturity.
    3) The domain sucks for a US News site...

    A better question is WHY would you go with it?????

    Now before you waste more time answering that question WHY are you creating a US news web site? There are hundreds of US news web sites, papers, media broadcast companies that rule that sector. There are even MORE smaller news sites that dominate the little piece of the pie that is left over. Then there are thousands of news sites that scrape from other news sites. There are even news sites that scrape from web sites that scrape other news sites that rewrite news they get from scraped news sites publishing news written by major reporting companies. What the hell are you doing differently that needs to be done? What the hell is your plan?

    In my opinion this is a terrible idea. A terrible idea + terrible domain = ?

    Thank you very much for your opinion, that's exactly what i looking for, it sucks for a US News site
    I think in it in this way: Generalie.com = General Lie = News :D :D Smart, Right?!!!

    Actually, it could be an interesting site based on the "General Lie" theme. There is so much fake news out there, you could try to become an arbiter of the fake news by posting the most silly and egregious examples of such. Of course, as @NetStar says, this is an extremely saturated market, so it will be very difficult to stand out from the noise.

    I've bought rillnews.com several years ago, had some plans with it, but now is working on another project. If you could describe me your project about news website in brief with some distinguish interesting features, I would consider your proposal to sell it or to become your partner in this initiative. Thank you.[​IMG]

    Yeah, there would certainly be a lot of competition. On the other hand, there are still some decent .com domain names available for registration like BiggestHeadlines, WeeklyUSNews or TruthfulHeadlines.

    I saw newswebsite.com was on auction on flippa. Maybe try bidding that. And if I may ask, how are you planning to source your news? You have writers or you also play to scrape from other news websites?

    think of a creative keyword that can be easy for your visitors to remember and depict its role online.

    Your General Lie theme is very good.
    Do a bust of fake news on your website.

    I registred my first .COM domain back in 1997 and at that time it was very easy to find a good domain name which wasnt occupied. Now more than 20 years later it is not so easy do find a "good looking" .COM domain name.

    I agree, finding a .COM domain is not easy these days. Very few good names with acceptable length exist.
    However, domain registries have launched so many new extensions, niche specific.
    You can get .NEWS, .HOST, .JOB, .LIMITED etc etc.
    So no need to get "USA Company News .COM", you can get "USA Company. NEWS" easily.

    I recently picked this: "MNC.NEWS"
    Haven't put up my website yet...
