    Hey guys. I'm looking to start up an online textbook company and I am having a hard time coming up with a catchy name that will also work well as a domain name. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    yes the exact same

    target market is college students and the main benefit will be the fact that buying their books will be local but still cheaper then the bookstore

    Have you given the google keyword tool a spin? It will give some pretty good suggestions. If that doesn't work try using Googles wonder wheel tool.

    Actually, I think Fergal and David have got it backwards. Fergal has listed some possible keywords you can get the site ranked for once you have a name, and David's idea will give you more of the same. However, using a keyword phrase as a name may help to get you ranked for that phrase, but getting a website ranked for phrases people actually search is not that easy.
    To get back to your original question, how about these:

    TextbookSource.com
    MyTextbookSource.com
    TheTextbookSource.com

    You can then use a phrase like "Cheap College Textbooks|Local College Textbooks" as your Title Tag, and perhaps use Fergal's suggestions in your "Keywords" and/or "Description" meta tags.

    I apologize for getting off-subject, but I thought that Fergal's and David's suggestions were good ones, but for a different purpose.

    Business name is considered the most important as with passage of time the goodwill will associate with the name of the business.So when you start your business you have to take some time to name your business in the best way possible.
