I realise that domain names are not particularly important in SEO. Nevertheless, there is a very desirable domain in my niche that I really want. I’d appreciate the views of this community please.

Basically it is a single keyword, short domain that was used by a company but no longer is, and hasn’t been for a year or two. Basically it is coming up to expire in a few months and I really want it.

Here are my options I’ve considered:

– Try to setup a domain backorder in the hope I catch it (risky?)

– Contact the current owners with my interest (likely to be expensive?)

– Use a broker to get it for me? (never done that before)

Each of the options has a few pros and cons, but in my shoes, what would you do please?

All advice welcome!

Many thanks.
