Bravo on paying attention to SEO for your domain name! Aside from having a quality website, getting noticed in search engines such as Google is perhaps the second most important issue for your website.
At present, four of the most important factors for getting a web site highly placed in the organic section on a Google search results page for a given keyword(s) are:
- URL (domain name) matching
- Page Title matching
- H1 Tag (heading) matching
- The number of times the searched upon keyword(s) appear throughout the text of the subject page
Prior to settling on your domain name, I would encourage you to consult with a web professional. A serious web professional will have access to software that enables them to research sites similar to the one you intend to construct in order to ascertain the keyword(s) that prospects are using to find those sites. As Charley pointed out, visitors are likely to use words or phrases that differ from those you might favor.
If you are looking to offer your services nationally, you will want to avoid keywords and phrases that limit you to a specific city or geographical region. By paying attention to SEO both now and in the future, it is possible to enjoy page 1 placement of your website on search engine results pages on a national basis.
Keep in mind that the above are but four of the many factors that Google considers when ranking a website. Other important factors include:
- The number of inbound links and the relevance of the referring website
- Whether a website has video content
- How frequently site content changes
