Two questions for those of you who are domain experts...
1. There is a domain that is a single word, .org domain that is selling for around $800 I'm very interested in buying. It targets a niche I'm after. Stats are...11 million broad searches a month, 110,000 phrase searches and around 7000 global exact searches.
My goal is to build a content rich site on it, and get it to rank for various related phrases. Plus, being a top keyword and .org, it should get more perceived authority from users instead of domain like this-is-my-keyword.com for example.
Does this seem like a good buy?
This ties in with my second question...
2. With the Google Updates on SEO these days, are exact match domains even worth buying any longer?
One of my other sites is an exact match domain with a keyword phrase "howtoxxxxxx.com". I'm building up content it as well, but will Google go after it since it is an exact match phrase domain? I don't want it to look scammy, the content sure isn't, it's all 100% unique.
