Comments on Domain Level Keyword Usage

WLike it or not, having the keyword in the domain helps—sometimes more than it should.

Exact-match domains still perform really well, despite Google updates to diminish the 'free pass' EMDs typically get. If I were to start a new site today I'd prefer to build a oriented domain rather than making the EMD my main site.

Exact match domains are still overvalued in Google's algorithm. I expect that we are going to see continued reduction in exact match value over the next year.
