A great domain name is short, spelled correctly, catchy and easy to remember. It should be relevant to the target niche as well, but that's not a necessity. Avoid domain names with numbers, special characters and long words. People will not remember them easily.

You have basically two types of great domains.
1. A domain name that is brandable. Think Nike, Google, CNN etc.
2. A domain name that is something lot's of people would just type into a web browser when looking for something. AKA a typein domain. Think car loans, how to play guitar etc.

Something easy to memorize would be good. Correct spelling. Probably not numbers. Use keywords you want in the domain.

It really depends on what you want - are you just after SERPs or do you want to create a long-lasting brand.
Imho 3-4 keywords within the url don't hurt, more looks spammy.
As far as what google wants... well who'd knew?
Some say keywords in the url count for 2% of ranking, others say 10%...
But no one really has any proof.
Personally i prefer to have 1-2 keywords if possible, but wont break my bank for them.
If you want to create a brand, use something that sounds cool - or industry relevant.
Short is usually best - but not too short and random.
IMHO best - and how i choose names - is to create a brandable name by joining a brandable word with a keyword, while keeping the overall name/phrase meaningful.34 ways to make money online - no schemes, no tricks, just sweat.

It is best to choose something which is relevant, memorable, easy to spell and original. Adding brand value and keyword terms, it will increase your rankings on Google.

Creativity is key. Something which catches the attention of the user will be more memorable to them.

For example, you can buy BlackOps3Forums.com before Black Ops 3 was revealed, and then released these are the traffic numbers you would get: 82,090 Users, 82,090 New Users, 99,088 Sessions, 261,454 Pageviews
Branded domains are very hard to market, but I recommend the easy to type branded domains. Once you've broken a milestone, you can market and scale it enough that it makes you money down the road.
