This obviously easy advantage in SERP ranking is apparently under a squeaze (no stats, no facts, no direct correlation) this is purely through my own observations.
Exact match domains have been at a premium for a while and as we all know they have been a simple route to easy rankings with very little updraft from BL`s.
But over the past week or so there has been indication that this may be on the change (check your own).
Has this stemmed from Mr Cutts` indication of exact match domains getting a second look.
or is this coincidental?
I suggest the former, but I also suspect that there has to be collateral from any tweaks.
If there is an alleged hand job, wow and wow. and Why?
If you could tweak - so soon, so quick, without much regard to carpet bombing the regular haunts of SERP`s, what chance do we have?
8+1-4+6-bull#*$!+maybe+thatsclose-exactmatch must surely be harder than recruiting 6mm SERP watchers to report back to a team of < 500 ?
(obviously that is a guestimate 2.5% of staff could never control all of the indexed tubes)
Just an observation.
