English/american spelling

I am wanting a website name with the word neighbour/neighbor in it. Because of the different spellings i dont know which one to choose.

The website wont be regional, but i am english so i spell it neighbour. The only reason i am swayed towards neighbour is so when i tell people i know they will be able to remember it.

Will this choice have much effect in the long run for popularity in SE's

Which would be the better choice?

Cheers
Andy

Get the American spelling. Chances are it will get more searches.

Depends. The whole of Europe, Asia, Australia and UK might spell it the English way. It depends on how you will market it, eg are you going to market the site locally?

It depends on who your target audience is.... are there other choices instead of neighbour that wouldn't have the spelling conflicts?

Have you thought of getting both? Not that large of an investment and may get more traffic having one redirect to the other.

Just so's ya know... Canada most often uses the "proper English" spellings. Although most young whipper-snappers use the American spellings.

Yeah get both, so people can use the proper spelling, and others can use the american spelling. They will still be brought to your site. It will only work out around $12 a year (thats about £6 in money)
