While selecting a domain name for your website, if you care for the SE ranking, you should try and choose a domain which is SEO friendly or which contains your core business keywords.

Hope this Helps !!!

I think URL structures make a very significant impact and I have noticed that short & sweet urls tend to do best in search results that very long keyword stuffed urls.

The process of changing your existing programmatic urls into a crawler friendly url is called as url structuring, search engines especially google will not consider your url if its not seo friendly.

URL Structure

Quote:
URLs, or Uniform Resource Locators, are the method by which documents or data are addressed in the World Wide Web. The URL contains the following information:

the internet name of the site containing the resource (document or data)
the type of service the resource is served by (eg, HTTP, Gopher, WAIS)
the Internet port number of the service. If this is omitted the browser assumes a commonly accepted default value.
the location of the resource in the directory structure of the server....
Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) - there's a diagram under this paragraph explaining Structure of an URL

Quote:
A site's URL structure should be as simple as possible. Consider organizing your content so that URLs are constructed logically and in a manner that is most intelligible to humans (when possible, readable words rather than long ID numbers). For example, if you're searching for information about aviation, a URL like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation will help you decide whether to click that link. A URL like http://www.example.com/index.php?id_...daa6f849f730f1, is much less appealing to users....
URL structure - Google
Notice in the above quote the topic of the article and the file name match the article topic.
Quote:
information about aviation, a URL like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation will help you decide whether to click that link.
To build on this example, your domain name, folder name (if using them) and file name all need to match the topic of the site and the topic of the page by using keywords/phrases for the topic.

URL structures are basically the web page names of the website. Please proper take care while designing the naming conventions or URL structures of the site. Used hyphens in the URL structure instead of underscore.

URL must be Search engine and user friendly.
Its better to use static URLs. with the targeted keywords separated by hyphens (or dashes) rather than underscores.
For eg: www. xyz. com/software-company is SEO friendly
than others like www. xyz. com/blog/id/=234 or www. xyz. com/software_company

Hi,
URL must be Search engine and user friendly. Use Static URLs.
Placing a keywords in url is important, web page wont rank well without keywords in the url.
