Hi this is my 1st post and I have a question already

I was lucky enough to get a really good keyword based domain name for my website.
Lets say my keywords were "eating bananas is good"
I got a domain EatingBananasIsGood with . com domain name extension.

Now my question is whats better:
- use the same keyword phrase as I have also for title of the website (the title and the h1 tag would therefor be "Eating Bananas Is Good")
- or should i use something that's not completely the same for the h1/title (for example: "5+ Amazing Reasons Why Eating Bananas Is Good")

Thanks for the reply and good day to you all!

    Mix it up.

    Repeating your keyword is spammy.

    Besides, SEO in 2019 is more and more about USER EXPERIENCE.

    Focus on content that DELIVERS on the reader's expectations if you don't want to get punished by crappy Bounce Rates

    Yes, we can use the same website title as a domain name but google recently updated his Algos and down all exact match domains from Google SERPs.

        Because the person posting has no clue what they are talking about!

        There never was an "EMD Penalty". Google just stopped giving them an automatic boost. People with crappy sites that had EMDs and saw them drop after the update felt it was a penalty. The fact is, they never should have ranked that high in the first place. Good sites with EMDs rose, if anything, due to the other unworthy sites dropping.

    Whether your website is having the same keywords in the domain name or not you have to follow the effective SEO strategies in order to rank high in search engine result pages. But don't stuff unnecessarily else you will be banned.

    Hey Dave, how is it like in Boise? I always wanted to visit Idaho for some reason, heard it was gorgeous.

    When in doubt, always write for your users as they will be the one linking to your content. While optimizing for the correct keywords is important, links are weighted more heavily into Google's ranking algorithms.

    You can have EMD's or not, but now it's all about your site content, structure, user experience, interaction etc. Just my 2 cents.

    Domain name should not have keyword. It's a spam technique to rank your website in short period. Domain name must be unique. Target your business keyword in your website and make your domain popular.

    It is not possible to create two websites with the same title.

    Having a domain name with the target keyword will not add any advantage for SEO. You can choose any domain name & should deliver the proper content to the users.


    Keywords should be placed in website naturally. Don't focus on placing more keywords in your website. Try to serve your purpose to the audience. Context is very very important.

    Mix it up. Redundancy might bore potential audiences away.

    Yes, you can use the same keywords to your title tag and H1. But you just need to add some extra word in it. Let's say, your title tag would be "Why Eating Bananas Is Good? | Health Benefits", then for H1, "Top Reason Why You Should Eat Bananas". All through your content you have to mentioned your keywords at least twice on the sentence. It's not bad to use the exact keywords through the content but find a way to make it more convincing to the reader on why they should eat bananas and why it's good.

    I think you should avoid using the same phrase as it is in the domain. Doing so makes it spammy. But you can use a variation where bananas are mentioned.

    Are you in the process of refreshing your website or even doing it for the first time? Web vocabulary is sometimes very complicated! Here is a small summary of the main terms concerning a website.

    By understanding what the different components are, you can better choose your suppliers, and better understand their different offers. Your choices will be more enlightened. Your website is all the programming that includes your documents, your design, your menu, your texts, your photos, your news, etc. in full. It's about graphics, integration and programming that blend to create a complete website that is functional.
