spiel / spiele / spielen usage

request for comments--


grading of 2 word domains ascii or IDN


xxxxxxxxx-spiel
xxxxxxxxxspiel
xxxxxxxxx-spiele
xxxxxxxxxspiele
xxxxxxxxx-spielen
xxxxxxxxxspielen


Could fluent German speakers comment on these 6 formats for domains ?

Are all 6 acceptable for branding purposes ?


Are there tips for when spiel/spiele/ spielen should be the first word of a two word expression ?

thanks.

Steve

All used in one way or another. Which one is best? Depends online the context. I can't tell you anything more useful without knowing your names. PM me your list and you'll get an appraisal.

I wouldn't recommend that. This is used on rare occasions when an adjective follows i.g. "Spiele gratis" but then again it should always be better the other way round.

The hyphen is mainly used as a word seperator so check SERPS and GAKT. Whenever the separate way of spelling is prefered (it's not always easy to determine) the hyphen is fine. Avoid it for compound words which are not usually spelt separately.

BTW: What do you mean by "branding purposes"? Brandables as opposed to search keywords? Close to impossible for a foreigner to judge what is a good German brandable imo.
