    How important is it for the domain to match the keywords. I'm new to all this stuff, but one domain I had setup indirectly matched some keywords exactly. It was only for 1000 searches/month, but I made it to the 5 position on google without doing a thing and without having too many key words matches. The only thing thats was spot on was the keyword matching the domain name.

    Is this a good strategy for getting started, find a good keyword/domain combo and using that to expand off of? How do the amount of searches/month affect that, I'm sure there is a sweet spot in there somewhere?

    it works fine. and one tip, go to whois.sc, type in the domain name, even the domain not exist yet, it will seperate the domain name, ie. blackhatworld.com will be shown as BlackHatWorld. so, you can see the keywords is Black Hat World.

    How important is it to get the domain spot on for this. For instance if my domain is:

    bestintheworldkeyword

    but I try to optimize for "best ever keyword", will that still be effective for hitting two of the three keywords, or does it just get pointless?

    It doesn't get pointless, but the concept really only works when it is an exact match. That being said, there are plenty of sites ranking for keywords that have domains that don't match the keyword at all.

    Ya, I find going for a good domain is a nice little boost, but so hard to keep everything in your site matching that domain anyway. I typically set up article sites, which makes that very hard anyway.

    It not the only thing that will help better ranking but is a 'good to have' option. I would suggest searching for other threads on this topic in this forum to get a hang of things and then start executing....there's a treasure of info in here alone. All the best!

    I heard that have the keyword(s) in your domain name helps to boost up ranking similar to text keywords.
