    Hello, I heard from my friend, that these days, domains with word "hack" in the name are treated instantly like a spam. Is this true?

    But the new domains, for example which I made this day, will I have harder to SEO it?

    Not really. Depends. If you post real hacking tutorials and how to steal data and such, maybe. But if you're doing what I think you're doing, game hacks with PPD and CPA, then no. You can rank that without a problem with the word hack in the domain.

    You have to look at the whole picture: It's one out of many signals, but there are certain words in domain names like "hack", "torrent", "buy", "cheap", "best" that can be a negative signal if there are other signals hinting to spam. I'd definitely stay away from domain names like "buycheapgreenwidgetsonline" or "iphonehacks" or "bestledtelevisions".

    Yes, BestBuy is a brand and ranks well, doesn't mean "BuyBestLawnmower" is one as well ;)

    In general, going for a non-keyword domain is a much better choice if you don't know exactly what you are doing. Keyword domains have some advantage, but are more fragile, too, especially when it comes to keyword links.

    Google does not give a hoot if your domain names has any "blackhat" keyword in it.

    No it is not so.
    Depends upon your SEO techniques and methods.

    I don't believe this either, it's pretty stupid. Just think about how easy it is to have "banned" words in your domain without actually having anything related to it (i.e. DreamsExplained.com). This is just a random example, there are tons out there.

    And you're telling me Google couldn't build an algorithm in 15 minutes to deal with instances like that?

    What your friend said is bunk, though.

    Only your SEO methods change your rankings, Google doesn't ban specific words.

    That was a random example, there are tons of better ones. Take this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula
    It's a city in Croatia, in romanian it means "dick", in portuguese it means "jump". Also there are names which could contain "banned" words.
