Did I make the correct choice?

I have a retail store client who had an established website (@ 5 years old).  This site was hosted on caraudiobainbridgegeorgia dot com ..  Client also owns precisionga dot com which is simply pointed to the other website.  We built a new website and replaced the old one on caraudiobainbridgegeorgia dot com .  I chose to keep the long url because of the longevity of the site and the keywords contained in it.  Obviously Precision.com would have been more user friendly.  Did I make the correct choice??

  • Richard Hearne: If it were me I'd consider branding over keywords in domain every day of the week.  ;With such a long (and knarly) domain I'd heavily reconsider moving, but I'm not convinced PrecisionGa.com is so great.  ;Probablky better than the longer name, but also has some downsides.  ;Now if they owned Precision.com... that would be a different story altogether ;-)
  • Ricardo Vidallon: A domain name should pass three tests. 1. Easy to say. 2. Easy to spell. AND 3. Easy to remember.
