    since I can't get an exact match domain, I was thinking about adding '101' to the end of the domain, so it ends up being Keyword101.com

    would adding numbers to the domain work well with seo?

    Are you guys sure about that? I have around 5 domains with numbers or dashes and they are not ranking as well as those without.

    I would only do it if it made sense. Like, for example, seo101.com would make sense if you couldn't buy seo.com because "101" is often paired with "teaching," so you're teaching SEO at seo101.com, making it a good domain.

    But if it's something like greenbananas72.com, I would be like "wtf is that?" and maybe Google would do the same, who knows.

    G would surely see that as spam in my opinion, and penalize the domain name

    Why don't you give proof? Any domain can get banned and if it has a number in it it's probably just a coincidence.

    My proof : just type in G competitive kw and you'll see by yourself there are no domains with numbers.

    Your proof : nada

    Why do you keep asking everybody for proof? You are the one who said all of the domains with a keyword and arbitrary numbers are banned, so show us one of these banned domains and the issue will be put to rest. Stop acting like you are some SEO god. No one gives a shit. People are merely sharing their thoughts on what would be a good or bad keyword and number combination.
