Hi guys, was just thinking about domain name SEO and my question is this: Is it beneficial to SEO have more that one domain name pointing to your site, heres and example:

Current Domain:

www dot howtostopproblem dot com

Proposed extra domain:

www dot howtoovercomeproblem dot come

Is this going to increase my ranking in the search engines for both of the keywords? Have you used this tactic before and is it worthwhile?

Thanks for your time and I look forwards to your responses

Fred

    Freddie Worrall,

    I'm not sure what you are asking but you can name a page so it will have the same keywords in your url. So for example if you had a domain "bluecardotcom" and you wanted to also rank for "redcardotcom" then you could make a page and then the URL would have the red car in it instead of creating a whole domain for "redcardot com"

    I hope that helps...

    I think I understand what you are asking, and I think the answer is no. You can get a bit of juice from having the keywords in your actual domain name, but you lose any keyword juice when you redirect a domain. I like the way you think thought I wish it was that simple.

    How much of a benefit do you guys think keyword domains play in general?

      I think, the domain which one has the related keywords is not helped to increase the visibility of sites. I knew through one report. But it is one of the best way to inform about the relevancy of site when the crawler crawl your site.

    Use to be a keyword domain name helped but not now. Just need quality content, back links, traffic, blog writings, article post, videos, etc.... All the usual.

    Hi Freddie!

    Extra domain means add-on domain?

    Have you used External Google Tool, Wordtracker or equivalent in validating the keyword in your domain? Anyway, the best thing to do is stuff both with quality content and reach to as many sites as possible for backlinking.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys, so the general concensus is that it won't be beneficial right? At least it won't be worth the money for the domain? Might aswell just make a page, do some backlinking and try to outrank people with good, quality content? Thanks Guys!

    Well, domain name does contribute in website ranking, but there are many other powerful factors that may help you more than domain. I would advise you to keep domain name reserved for branding (if you are selling your product / service in market).
