Do "keyword rich" domains help in the search engines?
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 16 September 2006 09:54 PM

Keywords are good for SEO

Buying domains that contain your keyword can SOMETIMES be useful in getting ranked higher in the search engines. e.g. www.ephostwebhosting.com. Some search engines rank higher because of this and others do not. In fact, some search engines may penalize for this. Consult a professional Search Engine Optimization company for more details.

It is a safe bet, and an affordable one, only to buy domains that are genuinely helpful to your users. For example, if your company was: "www.misspelling.com" you might want to get: "www.mispelling.com."
