Domain Names And Quality Score

I'm doing an online marketing campaign using google as a medium for a website. However even though they own the domain name, e.g. july.com, when you search for july it ranks on the 3rd page. What else should they consider to increase their rank?

As you've already seen, the answer is No.

I have been reading that having keyword in domain name doesn't make that much difference on the forums, but i wanted to test it myself and i was surprised when i saw the result. Because it really effected search ranking. 2 weeks ago i lunched my website name is seokaynagi dot com (kaynagi means source) and 2-3 days later my page had been indexed, and i did search my keywords on google seo kaynagi ( seo source ) i was in the first page and first position 369,000 result. and than i thought it is because i have all keywords that i search, in my domain. and I tried with seo kaynaklari (plural ). Surprisingly Im in the sixth page out of 577.000 result . Although my domain name is fresh, i got these results. After seeing those result i start to believe that it really effects more then i thought. Because even when we are doing SEO on some website, we also change page names like if it is product.htm will be cell-phone-product.htm right? and it does effect and with having keywords on domain must effect as much as changing the name of the pages.
It was my experience indicates that importance of the keywords in domain name but i really wanna see more articles with convincing information to believe that it doesn't effect.

Just for the record, there are not 369,000 results for the phrase. Not that 369,000 documents is competitive in the first place. Anyway, if you search for the exact phrase with quotes around it you'll to get closer to the real number. I come up with a whopping 193 pages competing for this very, very UNcompetitive term.
Anybody wanna bet on how long it take HRF to jump into the top 10 as soon as this thread with a single post mentioning term with no anchor text gets spidered? I'll go ya one better. I bet if just one or two of us linked to this thread with that single post and used the term as anchor text this thread would jump to the #1 spot straight away.
In short, you're mixing up cause and effect.
