Keyword Domains‏ No More Value In Google’s Eyes

Right after Google Farmer Update which basically killed thousands of website owners Keywords Domainsuch as Ezinearticles and Ehow, another update is coming up. This time, it’s keyword domains.

It’s seems that Google had changed its algorithm where they don’t appear to value the keywords in your domain name anymore.

This past month, a number of sites have been dropping in their rankings despite a long history of ranking high for their keyword phrases. The reason appears to be a significant change in Google’s algorithm where they don’t appear to give you as much value for the keywords in your domain name.

This is definitely why it’s VERY important to SEO the other elements that Google has in their algorithm like backlinks with great anchor text to your site, other on-page elements and having honestly a great overall SEO strategy that can get you through these unexpected and unplanned painful updates.

So will this change hurt you or push you? Let me know.
