I've been trialling the recent much-hyped link shortening method to rank an exact match .wordpress blog and these are the results: Took 2 weeks to reach the top of bing and Yahoo but the site is still stuck at the bottom of Page 1 on Google. The ranking method is loosely based on the "How to rank top 10 for anything" thread here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/639393-how-rank-top-ten-anything.html (WITHOUT the PBN). I'm seeing fewer and fewer exact matches in Google SERPs. Is anyone still ranking top with exact match urls on Google? And if so do you also use your keywords in titles (i.e. ww.keyword-here/more-about-keyword-here).
