    Hi,

    I am doing some keyword research for my new website and have already bought a domain
    with a suffix keyword say like : IndianHoliday . com. "Indian Holiday" is my main keyword.

    I now want to create a category "India Holiday Deals" and write articles with this keyword.
    Will my EMD be of any use here? I mean, can I have this category as this has better
    searches than "Indian Holiday Deals" ?

    The answer is yes. PMD (partial match domain) is just as good as EMD (exact match domain). A good tip when buying a domain is to keep it short and brandable.

    These days bigger authority websites do better than micro niche sites, it will give you room to expand to other keywords too.

    So, you mean to say, my domain will act as a PMD for the category "India Holiday Deals" and all the articles written with this keyword?

    Also, a lot of category keywords for "India Holiday" are better in terms of traffic and CPC
    than "Indian Holiday" like:

    Code:
    India Holiday Deals
    India Holiday places etc...
    But "Indian Holiday" is much more meaningful. What should I do, which one should I go
    for - India holiday or Indian Holiday ?

    Essentially, as long as the domain relates to the niche you can have what ever keywords. Just as long users would look at the domain and go.. "hmm yes, that website looks like what I'm looking for".
