    I made an authority site recently, i made a static home page with content of 3k words. Targeting my main KW. All the SEO parameters were green in YOAST SEO apart from the URL one because obviously the URL was my authority domain name and its not an EMD.

    So my question was, does it make a big difference in ranking? The keyword is easy to rank and im on #29 right now and going up. I was wondering if this makes any difference.

    The other keywords i target i make the URL according to the keyword EX - www.mysite.com/keyword-im-targeting/ but for the main KW i couldnt do that. Please tell me if this makes any difference and if there is anything i can do to fix it (IF IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE)

    Thank you

    Depending on competition not much. Just have good kwd and add some exact match anchor links
