Does the order of the words in the domain matter?

    So let us say for the search term "apple ipod" would buying the domain ipodapple.keom be just as effective as appleipod.KEOM these arn't real links btw just examples

    I just did 4 searches in google. For apple ipod and ipod apple with "" and without. Google gives me different results. Does this answer your question? :)

    It means google can distinguish between the terms but it doesn not state for certain that the domain name in a reversed order has any SEO disadvantage. What i'm asking is if the content is identical everythign is identical how much of a disadvantage would a reversed search term domain name have if any?

    Yes, indeed. This is an interesting question and I was wondered the same. To prove or bust this theory one have to do special study case or otherwise all the factors involved would alter the results. I'm interested to find out the answer too because if word order doesn't decline EMD value then we have almost unlimited amount of unregisterested EMDs. That is nuts.
    Keep us informed.
