      Very much indeed. This becomes very obvious for low competition keywords. The sites with the keywords in the url seem to always start with higher rankings.

    Just be careful of overoptimzing that keyword elsewhere. So if you have an exact match domain, or keywords in the domain, be careful about using those keywords too often elsewhere (content, backlinks, etc.).

      Totally agree here. If the domain in an EMD, be very careful with the inbound links.
      I personally prefer to have the keyword in the domain but not as an exact match.

      Feels a bit safer that way.

    Hardly any. Ever increasingly carrying less weight. EMD's are a thing of the past. Go with a short and sharp domain. You can always add keyword extensions to internal pages you create.

    I think the keyword in the URL is a huge deal. That's one of the first thing google looks for (in my experience)

  • It affects a lot in terms of SEO as what others pointed out here. A descriptive url is more powerful than a random one. But make sure that you do not over optimize- this means putting too many target keywords in one link or putting the wrong content to your page.

    I was under the impression that Google were no longer going to award points for EMD's?

    I think Keyword in URL and in post title carries more weight than any other on page seo factor.
