I noticed that there are several domain names available that include some of my major keywords. If I were to register those domains for my site, would it help my rankings go up?
I would want to keep my main domain name...the one I advertise as my business the one that would come up in the SERPs but I wonder if having these others would help?
Thanks for any info!
1. Company name
I would choose 2. Having a keyword in your domain names helps, especially when sites link to you. But if all you are doing is buying a domain name with a keyword, and thinking it would work miracles, think again.
As part of a complete SEO strategy it makes sense to go with 2.
It depends how you will use the extra domains. Link to your main site? Park them? Make them independent of each other?
Who knows how Google and Yahoo treat multiple domains? Maybe good, maybe bad. Course what is good this week usually turns out bad next week. Seems the webmaster is usually the last to know!
When people linked to us like that, we showed up number one for our keywords and got to keep MyCompanyName.com.
Sites that are Blue-Widgetes.com kinda give me a cheesey opinion. Maybe Blue-Widgets-World is a slight improvement... orr.. yeah, webmasterworld... hehe.
