    so i am going to buy an aged domain soon and was wondering if for example i bought a 5 year old domain named "mychicagocarrepair.com." would i get good keyword juice for the keyword "Chicago car repair"? or would it just count towards the keyword "my Chicago car repairs"?

    in other words, does the word at the beginning change how good the keyword is for the domain name if you are actually trying to bump up "chicago car repair" as a keyword for page rank? :confused:

    Forget about page rank... that doesn't necessarily mean traffic and conversions.

    Your keywords, with LSI keywords in your pages in all the right places, and then your link building efforts take precedence from there. What matters is that you do just enough to out do your competitors.

    All search engines like keywords in domain names. The prefix in the domain name will lower the value somewhat. However, as the prefix is short (2 letters), this shouldn't be too dramatic.

    Much better to have your keywords at the beginning without a prefix. An extra word after your keywords is better than at the beginning. That's just my experience though. I would take the keywords with dashes between them over extra words in the url.

    In my experience, I only get quick rankings with the exact keyword without any extra words. But a domain with your keywords is better than one without of course.

    What about adding a plural at the end? like instead of chicagocarrepair.com you use chicagocarrepairs.com?

    Plural would be better than prefix.
