My purpose here is to start (yet another) thread discussing the importance of a keyword domain name and/or site name.

My concern is the answer to the question: "Is it advantageous in a significant way to choose a domain name with a keyword"
I tried to word this carefully. I am not concerned (directly) with how is is avantageous, just whether. If the advantage is derivative of the increased likelihood that links to your site will include the keyword in the title, anchor text, etc. rather then directly included within ranking algorithms, that is still advantageous.

I think they mainly count when people use your domain name as anchor text.

I think if you're starting up an affiliate site or some other type of site that isn't a business outside of online, then there are advantages. I can see it with my new kindle site.

The reason I say if you have an offline biz is because it typically won't make sense for you to have a company name and a website that has keywords in it. But if you're just making something up for the web without a business behind it anyway, Google, for one likes to show domains these days that it believes are highly representative.
