Did anyone get hit by the update that didn't buy their domain name specifically to rank for the exact match term? I'm not being facetious, I'm actually curious. If you bought keyword1keyword2.com just to rank for keyword1keyword2, that's the kind of thing you can expect Google to target with updates. If you bought keyword.com and it's not a "branded" or trademarked term I'd expect that you might be safer. Just a theory, so I'd love to hear feedback. Was anyone hit that can honestly say they bought the domain without a direct ranking benefit in mind?
