Not at all. It’s nothing new, but keywords in domain name are awesome. My new a 35 days old autogen website is ranking #17 for its main keyword out of 32 millions. Only 100+ pages in index and less than 10 links, all bookmarks. Damn good, isn’t it?
Bullshit you say? OK then what about a 25 days old whitehat (unique contents & design) blog ranking #20+ for its main keyword out of 8.6 millions? Again, few bookmarks, 80+ pages in index, and, the most important factor, main keyword in domain name.
Where must be some kind of trick? You right. You can make your beast get ranks faster. Won’t tell you all the details, but YouTube, Wikipedia, sub domains, trusted competitors’ websites and daily posting will help it. BUT, after you get some good domains.
BTW, I would move 3 -> 1.
P.S.: Another autogenny baby keeps going up. Same techniques.
