So basically what you just said is if your domain is bluewidgets.com then you cannot talk about 'blue widgets' or have 'blue widgets' content on it. If this is how Google is really treating things then this by far the dumbest move ever.
Do people spam, cheat the system, blackhat, etc.? Of course they will its the world we live in, but a move like this just goes against common sense and not just in the world of the Internet, but in general. Google is taking the easy way out for their 'spam' problem and essentially rewriting an integral and original part of the internet... the domain name that matches the content within it.
2) links in using the exact match keywords = blue widgets (and close variations thereof)
3) links in using wwww.bluewidgetsdotcom as the anchor text - this and 2 above can generate anchor text "over optimization" penalties
5) meta title of "home" page tightly focuses on blue widgets
7) seo on each post focuses on blue widgets
8) H1 headings on posts focus on blue widgets
9) Keyword density > 1% (I think)
I'm just saying... the site is about 'blue widgets'... so how in the world are you supposed to have content about them without doing the above? Isn't G preaching the natural speech and writing stuff heavily these days... I challenge anyone to do that following those rules - its not possible. Incoming links that AREN'T related to blue widgets - human nature will take over and use anchor text related to the name or content of the site? I am a white male... how can I force people to describe me as a green parrot?
This question pops up in my head... if you took a group of young kids and put 'stores' in front of them. Stores simply because they can related to what a store is. Name those stores the domain names and ask them what they think is 'in' the stores. Computers, BlueWidgets, Basketballs, and Syzgio... I think you see where I am going.
So, what we will end up with is an enormous amount of nonsense, madeup, ridiculous domain names on the web that nobody will have any clue what they are without going to the website and looking at it first. And guess what... if Syzgio happens to make it then you better believe there will be SyzgioWidgets.com and everything else popping up the same as we have now. Not to mention all of this is going to increase spending on adwords and overall use of Google I would assume.
Enough of the rant... I could go on and on about my feeling towards these recent changes and not because I was affected or this and that (although it adds fuel), but because it does not make sense. There are better ways to handle it. Time for a break and some gfhjdgk gdfhj..... that means whiskey and water in Google terms.
