Only one problem adi. You're not right.
We could draw a line and say we agree to disagree, as long as you promise to stop pushing your theory that keywords in a domain have a major
effect on rankings.
An effect, possibly a small one that can be seen in totally uncompetitive markets. An effect because of links containing the keyworded domain definitely. But not a major effect in and of itself.
Want me to purchase a non-keyworded co.uk domain, apply my talents and blow all of your strapping machine examples of how keyworded domains supposedly have such a major effect out of the water? Pay me 15 grand up front and I'll do it. Hell, I'd even link to your site so that you get the business if anybody feels moved to click through.
oh dear, i guess i ought to explain that the last post was tongue in cheek and i was trying to bring a bit of lightheartedness back into the thread.. i was just saying the argument has gone on long enough. And you're kinda missing my point still.
And no, thanks for your very kind offer.. but i'm perfectly capable of getting strapping machines to number 1 easily thanks (talents eh, aren't they amazing). Why isnt it there now? time and budget. I'm optimising around 20 terms for that site, and cant concentrate on one when they've not specifically requested it. A simple bit of onpage is all thats placed me at 2. But , as explained, the example wasnt about my site or or others below it, it was about the jepson site.
move on.. nothing to see here.
