    Help. Google suggests the plural form of my domain name.

    If someone searches my domain, Domain.com, then google says, "Did you mean Domains.com?". This is a bummer as many people are really trying to go to my site and don't know they should be typing the URL in the browser. What can I do about this?

    Aside from changing your name to plural nothing.

    Is domains.com a real site, and a popular one? That might affect your strategy.

    Give your website few links by using domain name in anchor text by adding "s".
    Build trust and wait for Google to show its magic as it will automatically pick your website even with or without "s".

    Thanks guys. Yes, he is more popular doing lots of Google ads over the years. I haven't done as much for my site until now. Hopefully, it won't be long before Google knows I am a site that people intend to go.

    Thanks Brian. Can you give me more information about what you're talking about. I'm not sure what you mean by creating links with "s". Thanks.
