Hi

Just a quick question.

When you are picking keyword rich domain names, does it matter which order they appear in the domain-along as they appear?

So if my keywords are A, B, C but ABC.co.uk is taken, would ACB.co.uk work just as effectively.

Thanks

Z

    1. The order matters.
    2. NO, it wont work as effectively. Simplest answer, I guess huh?

    ABC is first choice of course. However, I have seen sites ACB rank well for keyword ABC. You could put another word before or after should you wish to keep ABC in order.

    Eg.

    XABC

    or

    ABCX

    Keyword phrases should be in the order that they appear in a search.

    It doesnt matter so long as you are keeping your main keywords in tact. For instance lets just say you found 2 good keywords keyword 1 "dog training" and keyword 2 "stop barking".

    Now so long as you are keeping the keywords in tact like so dogtrainingstopbarking.com or stopbarkingdogtraining.com you will be fine. However you will lose value if you butcher the keywords as follows stopdogbarkingtraining.com or trainingstopdogbarking.com unless this is the exact term you are wanting to target.

      I'll go with petevamp, but if you use them according to the priority then it will work better. Like if dog training has more demand then stop barking then keep it at first place.

    I had read somewhere that putting words before the keyword, like "the" or something like that reduced it's effectiveness and you were better to use the phrase and then something after it - has anyone tested and found that to be true?

      I would not use a word infront but a letter of some kind myself which should not have an affect on it at all. For instance I would use e and i but I would not use a word like the. I have had some luck with adding words at the end of the domains as well. Although it is still far better if you can obtain the exact phrase. Also you do not want to add - - - to the domain for this will rank you lower then others for the same term.
