edit: topic should be "is a great keyword domain that important" -- sorry about that Im thinking about starting a blog, this will be my first step into making money with SEO. I was thinking of domain names for my blog and im wondering if exact domain keywords are really important.. example, If i want to make a blog about digitalcameras, as far as getting to the top of google for specific search terms about digital cameras, do i NEED to have digitalcameras in my domain name? Or if i'm making a site about skateboarding, and i want users who are searching for skateboarding information to find me, do i NEED to have skateboarding in my domain name? I'm new to this so be gentle with the flames lol. I've been doing internet marketing for awhile now(mostly mailing) But i want to break through into the seo/blogging scene.. Just looking for some tips before i begin.
