I have used vbseo on many of my sites, and for some reason I am having a hard time ranking well with google on it on my current website, usually do very well with it. I have been lucky to rank for the keyword I want with google on page 1 usually within 2 months or less...yes I know that is fast! But after playing with google for quite some time I really see that the domain name and the keywords in it is the MAIN factor for ranking for that keyword i want. Yes I am sure I will get tons of quotes and articles showing not but from MY experience I have had great luck by having the keyword i want in straight order of the domain name... for example my first site I ever started, got on google page 1 in less then 2 months and has stayed on page 1 of google for over a year still and the site only works on the first page rest of site is all broken but still is ranking for the keyword I want...yes I had a lot of backlinks but even got on google page 1 with little to none backlinks. The domain was RadarReviews.Net and the main keyword I want on page 1 of google is "Radar Detector Reviews" if you look on google now will see it is still on page 1 and forum is all shutdown and messed up.
Well I started another domain name, never developed...nothing really and it is on page 2 of google for this keyword, domain is RadarDetectorReview.net ...
Well after about 3 months I have been trying hard to get my domain ranked well for this domain name...and cant even find it past page 30 the domain I have now is "ARadarDetector.Com" well what I noticed is it does have the important keywords "Radar Detector" in it...however the letter "A" is in front of it...and google looks at the first word as the most important in a domain name FROM my experience
So with all this in mind...if I could get a domain name that started off with "Radar Detector" as the first part of the domain name and just another small keyword after that, then should I scrap my domain name I have now "ARadarDetector.Com" and see how I do?
What are your thoughts? Keeping in mind that I want to rank page 1 for keyword "Radar Detector Reviews"
