I am considering changing the domain of my website from keyframeonline.com to keyframeanimation.com. The latter is much closer to the full name of the site, (Keyframe: the Animation Resource), and a much better indication of what the site is actually about. My concern is that we've used a URL rewriter for years and many of our links would look something like the following once the domain has been changed:

www.keyframeanimation.com/Animation/Bambi/31/

Pushing the word "animation" into the URL made sense when I was stuck with 'keyframeonline' as my domain, however now my concern is that search engines might read the new URL as a double keyword push of "animation" and penalize me as a result.


Do you see this as something that I should be concerned about?

It's fine. But I wouldn't be changing the domain name unless you really have to. While it's not as bad as it used to be, it sometimes takes awhile to gain the same traction with search engines you once had.

If your domain has some authority and decent links it probably won't be too bad though. But the file names are not a problem at all.

Jill, what's about: keyondomain.com/key.html?

Is it good or bad? And can my site go to #1 if my domain's contains no key?

Loading up the url address with your keyword terms isn't going to give you the king of bump most people think it will. Not all by itself anyway. And not as much as linking to that page using the keyword phrase as the anchor text. So while it's not necessarily bad, it's just not as helpful as most seem to think it is.

It sure can.
