I have been trying to find an answer to this but honestly, I'm sure exactly what to look for...so here it goes...
I find a keyword phrase I wish to target, like "how to sell cars" for example (not my niche so don't know if a good one or not).
In a perfect world I would register & use the domain name howtosellcars.com, but lets say it's taken.
However, howtosellcarsecrets.com is available.
Now would search engines see that as "how to sell car secrets" or how to sell cars ecrets?"
In other words, would the domain actual count as having my exact, targeted keyword phrase in it?
I'm sure this is clear as mud but if you have any input I would greatly appreciate it!
