tedster - I noted in April and May posts I saw a very strong presence of keywords in the URL/domain. For the area I am monitoring for top 10 results they all have the keyword in one or the other (but never both) and its split about 50/50 for domain only or url only. top 5 results its: url, url, domain, url, url -- but of those top 5 spots 2-5 have the major contributing word of a 3 word phrase in the domain name as well.
this is just one example but seems to reflect consistently over many keyword phrases I look at from 1 word to 4 word phrases.
