    Hi everyone,

    I'm new but really glad to be here!
    I must of read every thread in the "Newbie start here section"...!!
    Okay.....newbie question coming at you!........with a huge number of websites using professional search engine optimisation, is ensuring that a domain name has keywords in it a thing of the past?
    This might be a great advice for newbies starting out.

    Huge thanks,

    Gareth.

    Google seems to have said that it is putting less emphasis on domain names, but then Google seems to tel[ porkies. I think the most important thing now to get good rankings is how much you pay Google, and whether Google owns the site.

    That's kinda what I thought Kuffy.
    My gut feeling after doing the usual newbie path of watching Youtube videos and then diving in head first registering a couple of keyword.com's was "what's the point?"
    I have quite a vivid imagination and my brain works best inventing mashed up domains I think.
    I have an idea that maybe one day someone may really like one and and fold it into their branding or product.
    Wishful thinking I know!......

    I'm having real trouble with Google, it keeps altering my searches, and giving me stuff that isn't relevant, or mis-spelt. I've started to use Buckduckgo.com instead.
