    I am trying to come up with a domain name for a website. I am in Alabama. Everything I can come up with using Alabama is taken or very expensive. I was thinking of using "bama" in the names instead of Alabama. In the state, "bama" is widely known and used instead of Alabama.

    My question is that if I were to use something like that would search engines pick up on that when someone types in Alabama?? I know I probably need a blog and other work done for the search engines to index the site, but besides that would a search for alabama health insurance pick up a website named bama health insurance??

    Thanks for any info.

    So is alabamahsaquotes.com. I suggest you grab a few of these on GoDaddy. Search google for a godaddy code so you can register them for cheaper.

    I would also grab alabamamedicareplans.com.

    You're welcome. Sorry I won't be able to make it to the party in Vegas. Maybe for the anniversary party.
