Keywords In TLDs

Keywords In TLDsIf you’re thinking about buying an exact-match-domain or a keyword-rich-domain, don’t. Placing Keywords in TLDs don’t provide any advantages in the search results and buying an exact-match-domain could penalize your site in the search results as well. TLDs stand for “Top Level Domains” like .com, .net, and .org.

Here are some examples of Exact Match Domains:

  • BuyNikeBasketballHoops.com
  • WatchMoviesForFree.net
  • WhatIsABook.info
  • HowDoYouMakeBallons.org
  • Etc.

You can see by the above examples that these domains (websites) could provide users with different results not pertaining to their needs. Because of this, Google and other search engines felt required to penalize sites for using this method. Many niche websites were hit hard by this algorithm update.

Here are some examples of Keyword in TLDs:

  • BasketBallHoopsPeoriaIllinois.com
  • AttorneyTampaFlordia.net
  • BestPlumberMemphisTennessee.org
  • Etc.

As you can see, these domains (websites) could provide users with different results. Just because the domain says Tampa, Florida, doesn’t mean they are located in that area. And BestPlumberMemphisTennessee.org could not be the best company. It’s best to keep your domain names simple, small, and easy to remember.
