    Hello Friends,

    Recently I read and heard few contradictory information regrading using words like " best , cheap, guide, reviews " in domain name. Few webmasters advising not to use "best , cheap, guide, reviews" like words in domain name because google may penalize the site though if we can gain good back links. To my surprise I found some sites performing so good and its in first few results of google with the word " best". How is it possible??
    If some one have site with "best" in domain name is it possible to complete shift all the indexed articles ( e.g 12- 20 articles) to new domain?
    Will those articles reflect as copied contents after shifting to new domain?

    Google won't penalize you for your domain name, unless you buy something like "BestOnlineWeightLossProgramForWomen.com"... There are some domains that I personally believe will be affected by the EMD algo, but in general, unless you use something that is clearly abusive I don't see the reason it should affect your rankings.

    Spam? Nah I would not call it spam but it does sound generic and less professional. Sounds like something Billy Maze would
    have been selling or something.
