I have done a small research. So I have registered domain couple of months ago. That domain name consists of frequent used keywords.
I didn’t do much things in this site. But after few days I saw my site is coming to the 2 nd position when I search “<snip>” in google. Third position in MSN. First position site has PR7 . There are PR5,PR4 sites appear after my site.
So my argument is Domain name plays major part of SEO. PR ,inbound links and other SEO factors has very less impact.
There is a site sells their well popular SEO book. What they say was when we type “seo book” in any search engine , their site comes as the first result. According to my research, that is not because of SEO skills, that is totally the Domain name matches the typed keyword .
