    Do domain hacks offer any seo benefit? Domain hacks are domains such as call.me del.icio.us appsolut.ly blo.gs and etc


    So if i was targeting KEYWORD my domain hack would be KEYWO.RD

    Name hacks might offer a *slight* SEO benefit since they are easier to parse.

    The main benefit they offer is the human element - they are easier to remember, make viral, etc.

    IMO DOmain hacks are fail.

    Twitter was Stat.us before. Did it work? Not at all, its why they changed their domain name.

    I think domain hacks work better for two words. Such as who.is (google who is and look at the top results...)
