Hi, I need some help establishing a first spot ranking for a desired keyword. I`m quite puzzled that the site I am doing work for isn`t first yet, it`s second. However, the first spot is taken by a website which has the exact keyword phrase in it`s domain..
Rumours are going about that `exact keyword match` in domain name doesn`t affect SEO, when infact it does - the site I am doing work for has a much better link profile that the site taking the number 1 spot. I have been building links for the last couple of weeks, worked on my anchor text optimisation for that keyword and I am having no luck. It`s like Google is giving that website the advantage just because of their domain.
Meh - any ideas for over taking a site which has he exact keyword phrase in the domain?
