    I'm looking up Google keyword tool to build my first website, chock full of articles for the mini niche and was wondering about the domain name. For example, im not doing this but u can imagine, if u're aiming for registry repair and u write registryrepairdeluxe do% info will u rank for registry repair or only registry repair deluxe?

    There is much, much more to ranking for a keyword than just the domain. One could rank either domain (with or w/o deluxe) for either keyword.

    You will rank for both and more keywords if you optimize your posts and your website. You usually get three main keywords with your blog, then low competitive keywords with posts.

    Your domain name is he most important factor. But later comes the content covering your keywords.

    You can rank for both - (True but needs lots of time and content and backlinks)
    You can rank mainly for the keyword in your domain name (True-easy way)

    Think about may domain: celebritymovieandmusicandfashion.com

    Will this domain rank for celebrity? NO WAY
    Will this domain rank for movie? NO WAY
    Will this domain rank for music? NO WAY
    Will this domain rank for fashion? NO WAY
    Will this domain rank for search query " celebrity movie and music and fashion?" SURE!

    if you have the keywords "registry repair" at the beginning of your title and if you have enough incoming links with the anchor text "registry repair" you will also rank for registry repair.

    You could rank that domain for multiple things though with no problem.

    Celebrity movie
    Celebrity Music
    Movie Fashion
    etc.

    Hell I could rank it for Men's underwear if I wanted to. The domain is just a small portion of the big picture.

    Get out of the trap of thinking of the site's SERP but consider optimizing individual pages for keywords. In this manner you can optimize your landing page for the higher traffic word, let's say registryrepair and then have a second page targetting a lesser but still significant keyword such as registryrepairdeluxe.

    What would the content need to be to optimize for both?

    For example, "registry repair" and "repair registry"? Is it advisable to optimize this page for both or create 2 pages seperate for each phrase?

    Google likes semantically similar words on the page. So if I only used registry repair over and over again you're not going to rank as well as you would if you had something like:

    repairing your registry
    registry repair
    repair your registry
    etc.

    Use semantically similar terms.
