    I read that if you are going to start up a new site, the URL should be able to tell people what the site is about to some degree. The thing is, the site I want to launch is a titled shop, not a specific niche or anything like that. Does this really matter that much?

    In most cases, yes you want it to be easy to know. Some cases like "Twitter" as an example didn't start like this but it doesn't matter as much since "tweeting" is their own sort of online interaction brand now.

    If you are running a community, you want that to be apparent. If you have a self-help site, you want that to be apparent. I think it is important on many terms but you can get around not using a clean and clear cut address.

    I think a shorter URL is more important over making sure it tells people what your site is about. If you want to make sure, just use the proper extension.
