I would really appreciate your input here. I'm a real estate agent and I'm about to launch my wordpress site in the next 2 weeks or so. I will probably have about 30 pages of unique content when I launch and I'm planning on adding unique content on a regular basis. I'm about to purchase a domain name and I've been concerned about the effect of the latest google update if I go with an exact match domain name. Here's my question:
I heard some people say that google EMD update only affects spammy sites that have no content supporting the exact match domain where as others said that they have proof that this update even affected people who had sites with lots of unique content.
To give you an example of what I'm asking without giving away my URL that I intend to purchase:
Let's say all things being equal (same exact content and everything else on the website) if I used an exact match domain (EMD) name such as www.widgetcityhouseguide.com and I'm targetting the word "
widget city house" and other long tail keywords that might let's say names of condo buildings in Widget City. Would I be better off using a domain name such www.DaveTheWidgetCityHouseGuy.com?
All things being equal (same exact, relevant content on the site) would I achieve a higher rank with www.widgetcithyhouseguide.com or www.ArekTheWidgetcityHouseGuy.com for the main keyword "widget city house" and the long tail keywords of specific condo names in widget city?
And would it make a differencethat since this is a new site there would not be as many pages as you would find on a mature site?
I invested $1000 into the design of this new wordpress site and I really don't want to compromise the SEO potential of this site just because of a domain name.
Thank you all,
