    What happens if you run across a site with high PR, lots of links, but no kw in domain, subdomain or h1 tag?

    My knowledge of SEO tells me that a keyworded domain can out rank those. Am I right?

    yes - can.. but not the same as it will.. :) However, having a strong focused keyword domain, does makes ranking way easier for the targeted keyword.

    In terms of SEO priority, domain name dominates PR and backlinks by quite a bit.
