So if your business is a bike shop, it would be good practice to have "bikeshop" in the domain name. Also, the city name if possible. That way, when people are searching for a bike shop by area, your chances of moving to the top of the listing will increase.
Example: If a person does a search for "Seattle bike shop", if your domain is www.mikesseattlebikeshop.com, this would increase your chances of being found.
If creating a brand, there are other ways to move to the top of the listing. One way is to get a second domain with the key words that you would like to be found for (seattlebikeshop) and have a mini-site. some recommend using a Wordpress site. You can link this mini-site to your main site and vice-versa. That way, you can still have a domain with your brand but still reap the benenfits of having a key word rich domain as well.
