    How important is http://www.keyword.com vs http://www.keywordshop.com in terms of SEO?

    I'm just wondering if google sees it as being optimized towards the keyword or something different because of the extra word in the url.

    I'm asking because I have a good niche but can't get just the keyword in the url (.com, .net and .org are all taken) and because I have other similar niches I'm wondering if I should use another keyword as the main domain to help that one rank instead.

    Thanks,
    Amar
