What's the best URL for a book landing page?

Paolo Amoroso @PaoloAmoroso

Suppose you own the domain mydomain.com and build a landing page for a book titled The Full Book Title.

What's the best URL for the landing page? By best I mean most convenient, shareable, and memorable.

You're welcome to elaborate on your choice in the comments.

    I'd make sure it's pronounceable on a podcast, so thefullbooktitle.com is my pick.

      Thanks. I wonder whether the hyphens may make the URL less shareable.

        You know what? You're right. I instinctively responded in terms of SEO, because that's what I prioritize. But that's not what you asked. You asked for most memorable and shareable.

        For share-ability, a really simple (yet memorable) domain name is what I would go with. People always forget anything outside of "domain.com". And for this purpose, it really should be a ".com".

        But for SEO I prefer more descriptive URLs.

          Thanks. Yes, I read mydomain.com/thefullbooktitle is better for SEO.
