I'm still waiting for Google to ding the exact match domain names....which to me is hugely over-optimization. But apparently not...
I agree. I have a domain that I don't use any longer. There's only a white homepage with a title, one phrase and 5 links to direct visitors to pages on my main website. It has been like this for 2 years now.
Guess what ... it ranks. Page one in the serps.
When the keywords are in the domain name, you have a huge chance of getting ranked, even without content. If you do have the content, but no keyword(s) in the domain, then you have a huge disadvantage.
